Summary:

This thrilling novel paints a grim picture of what the future may have in store for us. Advocate of the truth is a gripping novel set in today's society, marked by growing intolerance, populism, terrorism, the yearn for security and failing (political) leadership. A society in which technological developments seem endless, but where the privacy of the individual is undermined with no remorse. On a more personal level, it is a deeply moving story about friendship, love and the compassion Francis of Assisi stands for. This fast-paced literary thriller prompts you to reflect on wisdom from the past and ethics for the future, showing the intense struggle between good and evil that hits home in today's society. When Thomas, a former partner of a prestigious law firm, promises his best friend Sam to keep his groundbreaking Spider technology away from mankind, he has no clue what awaits him. A chilling scenario unfolds when Thomas is plunged into a web of corporate espionage, misleading information, the rising power of populism and murder. As he finds signs pointing to a high-level conspiracy, a mysterious and deadly virus sweeps across the earth. Politicians and unknown forces take advantage of the panic, hitting fear buttons worldwide. A pandemic is looming, and so is a dystopian future. Orwell's 1984 is getting closer every day. "If we aren't careful we will turn into a society in which all human consciousness ceases to exist. It will be much worse than Orwell's 1984." Suddenly Sam's Spider technology has life-saving potential, raising profound ethical questions: Do we allow fear and greed to overrule the natural bonds between people? Should the privacy of individuals be sacrificed to the illusion of safety? How do we prevent technology from casting a dark shadow over the future? And ultimately: is mankind nearing its expiration date? Thomas sets out to find the truth against a backdrop of misleading information, manipulation, deceit and intimidation. Nothing is what it seems. His tense search leads him to the medieval Italian city of Assisi, oppressive boardrooms, back alleys and dimly-lit churches in Rome, and a former monastery overlooking the Mediterranean in France. He is supported by his old college buddy Charles, a philosopher who has moved up the ranks of Dutch politics, and by Gianni, a quick-witted Italian lawyer in Rome. Meanwhile, he has two women vying for his heart: Sophia, a sensitive violinist who cared for his father in the final days of life, and Juliette, an alluring and intriguing Parisian he meets by chance in Tuscany.

Summary:

How exactly could God achieve infallible foreknowledge of every future event, including the free actions of human persons? How could God exercise careful providence over these same events? Byerly offers a novel response to these important questions by contending that God exercises providence and achieves foreknowledge by ordering the times. The first part of the book defends the importance of the above questions. After characterizing the contemporary freedom-foreknowledge debate, Byerly argues that it has focused too narrowly on a certain argument for theological fatalism, which attempts to show that the existence of infallible divine foreknowledge poses a unique threat to the existence of creaturely libertarian freedom. Byerly contends, however, that bare existence of infallible divine foreknowledge cannot threaten freedom in this way; at most, the mechanics whereby this foreknowledge is achieved might so threaten human freedom. In the second part of the book, Byerly develops a model for understanding the mechanics whereby infallible foreknowledge is achieved that would not threaten creaturely libertarian freedom. According to the model, God infallibly foreknows every future event because God has placed the times that constitute the history of the world in primitive earlier-than relations to one another. After defending the consistency of this model of the mechanics of divine foreknowledge with creaturely libertarian freedom, the author applies it to divine providence more generally. A novel defense of concurrentism is the result.

Summary:

Two thousand years ago, Seneca described advocates not as seekers of truth but as accessories to injustice, "smothered by their prosperity." This unflattering assessment has only worsened over time. The vast majority of Americans now perceive lawyers as arrogant, unaffordable hired guns whose ethical practices rank just slightly above those of used car salesmen. In this penetrating new book, Deborah L. Rhode goes beyond the commonplace attacks on lawyers to provide the first systematic study of the structural problems confronting the legal profession. A past president of the Association of American Law Schools and senior counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during Clinton's impeachment proceedings, Rhode brings an insider's knowledge to the labyrinthine complexities of how the law works, or fails to work, for most Americans and often for lawyers themselves. She sheds much light on problems with the adversary system, the commercialization of practice, bar disciplinary processes, race and gender bias, and legal education. She argues convincingly that the bar's current self-regulation must be replaced by oversight structures that would put the public's interests above those of the profession. She insists that legal education become more flexible, by offering less expensive degree programs that would prepare paralegals to provide much needed low cost assistance. Most important, she calls for a return to ethical standards that put public service above economic self-interest. Elegantly written and touching on such high profile cases as the O.J. Simpson trial and the Starr investigation, In the Interests of Justice uncovers fundamental flaws in our legal system and proposes sweeping reforms.

Summary:

Although the doctrine and work of the Holy Spirit is no longer being ignored in theology (as was often the case in centuries past), the authority of the Spirit remains essentially undefined. The need for such a definition, however, is urgent. Some dangerous trends in the contemporary understanding of the Spirit have developed (trends that can only be exposed through careful exegesis of Scripture and theological clarification). Indeed, some contemporary models often leave us with a nonauthoritative Spirit predisposed toward universalism, experientialism, or panentheism. This work will attempt to show that the nature of the Holy Spirit's authority can be clearly defined through biblical and systematic theology. When we investigate the Spirit's place within the pattern of divine authority, as specified in Scripture, we discover that the Holy Spirit indeed possesses a unique authority as divine Person, Christ's Executor, Teacher, and Governor of the Church. Such a work will be helpful for both the theologian and the pastor. First, definitions of the Spirit's authority will be developed through historical, exegetical, and theological analysis. Then these definitions will be applied to specific church practices, including hermeneutics, church structure and guidance, and Christian spirituality. A response will also be given to those practical theologies that are subtly diminishing the Spirit's authority in relation to the contemporary church.
