📒Yahwism After The Exile ✍ European Association for Biblical Studies. Meeting
✏Yahwism After the Exile Book Summary : STAR - Studies in Theology and Religion, 5 Papers Read at the First Meeting of the European Association for Biblical Studies, Utrecht, 6-9 August 2000 The Persian era in Ancient Israel's history is an intriguing period. The time span between Cyrus the Great and Alexander the Great was a theatre of shifts and changes. These changes are observable in daily life, in the organisation of society as well as in various religious phenomena. The essays in this volume originate from a seminar about developments and movements in the religion of Israel after the Exile, which was part of the first meeting of the European Association for Biblical Studies (Utrecht, 2000). The essays deal with questions like: How did religion help inhabitants of Yehud to cope with the new reality? How did this new reality influence the (re)formulation of Yahwism? What was the character of the existing Yahwism that was reformulated? Rainer Albertz (PhD Heidelberg, 1972; Habilitation Heidelberg, 1977) is ordinary Professor of Old Testament Studies at the University of Munster (Westfalen, Germany). His most recent book is: Die Exilszeit 6. Jahrhundert v. Chr. (Biblische Enzyklopadie 7), Stuttgart 2001. Bob Becking (PhD Utrecht, 1985) is ordinary Professor of Old Testament studies at Utrecht University. He was co-editor of the Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible, Leiden 1995; 21998.

✏The Exile Book Summary : The USA Today bestselling author of the Blood Singer series begins an exciting, romantic urban fantasy series with the story of Brianna Hai, who just wants to lead a normal life. Fat chance when your mother's a witch and your father's King of the Fae. But Brianna's doing her best. She runs a small occult shop that sells useless trinkets to tourists...but real magic supplies and artifacts to those who know how to ask. She dates occasionally, and has just met a really great guy, a cop who happens to be the brother of one of her closest friends. But that gargoyle by the shop door? He's not a carving. He's alive, and Brianna's guardian. And upstairs, in her apartment, is the last remaining portal between earth and the realm of the Fae--a world that Brianna left in her teens, a place she has vowed never to return. Until a shocking magical assault on her home leads Brianna to invade the land she once called home and reveals that the plots and counterplots of her youth continue to roil the royal court. Her father, King Leu, is under attack--and she, Brianna, the exile, has been named the next heir to the throne of Faerie. It's a very dangerous seat.

📒The Exile And Return Of Writers From East Central Europe ✍ John Neubauer
✏The Exile and Return of Writers from East Central Europe Book Summary : This is the first comparative study of literature written by writers who fled from East-Central Europe during the twentieth century. It includes not only interpretations of individual lives and literary works, but also studies of the most important literary journals, publishers, radio programs, and other aspects of exile literary cultures. The theoretical part of introduction distinguishes between exiles, émigrés, and expatriates, while the historical part surveys the pre-twentieth-century exile traditions and provides an overview of the exilic events between 1919 and 1995; one section is devoted to exile cultures in Paris, London, and New York, as well as in Moscow, Madrid, Toronto, Buenos Aires and other cities. The studies focus on the factional divisions within each national exile culture and on the relationship between the various exiled national cultures among each other. They also investigate the relation of each exile national culture to the culture of its host country. Individual essays are devoted to Witold Gombrowicz, Paul Goma, Milan Kundera, Monica Lovincescu, Miloš Crnjanski, Herta Müller, and to the "internal exile" of Imre Kertész. Special attention is devoted to the new forms of exile that emerged during the ex-Yugoslav wars, and to the problems of "homecoming" of exiled texts and writers
📒The Exile ✍ Michael Blakeslee
✏The Exile Book Summary : Daniel, a Judean youth, is taken to Babylon as a hostage. Rising to prominence in the royal court of King Nebuchadnezzar, he becomes a pawn in the conflict between the warrior-king and the powerful caste of priests serving the false gods. Nebuchadnezzar, obsessed with conquest and self-aggrandizement, creates much human suffering. Stricken insane by the God of Abraham, the curse ridden king destroys Jerusalem and its holy temple in a futile attempt to end his torment. Daniel strives to salvage the sacred texts written by Israel's prophets and turn his exiled countrymen back to God in preparation for their inevitable return to the Promised Land. Finally acknowledging God as the ultimate authority over mankind, King Nebuchadnezzar is haunted no more and allows Daniel to usher in a golden age of peace and prosperity. Evading extinction, the priests of Marduk continue to undermine Daniel's efforts, plotting his death until meeting their ill-fated end, ironically, in the lions' den. Since his youth, Daniel encounters recurring visions of a man nailed to the crossed timbers he hangs from. Daniel finally learns the answer to this life-long mystery when the angel Gabriel reveals to him the fullness of heaven, only hours before his decreed execution. The Exile threads together the biblical accounts found in the Old Testament Book of Daniel. Driven by war, political intrigue, and love, the story is set against the backdrop of the Babylonian captivity. Its unfolding drama reveals the tumultuous nature of the historical events surrounding remnant Israel's seventy year exile, while sharing the gospel message from this unique perspective centuries before Jesus Christ's birth, sacrificial death and resurrection. An avid student of the Bible and ancient history, Michael Blakeslee resides in Sacramento, California, from where he continues to support evangelical missions abroad and the concept "one nation under God."
