In Rio de Janeiro, the spiritual home of world football, and Buenos Aires, where a popular soccer club president was recently elected mayor, the game is an integral part of national identity. Using the football stadium as an illuminating cultural lens, Temples of the Earthbound Gods examines many aspects of urban culture that play out within these monumental architectural forms, including spirituality, violence, rigid social norms, anarchy, and also expressions of sexuality and gender. Tracing the history of the game in Brazil and Argentina through colonial influences as well as indigenous ball courts in Mayan, Aztec, Zapotec, Mixtec, and Olmec societies, Christopher Gaffney's study spans both ancient and contemporary worlds, linking the development of stadiums to urbanization and the consolidation of nation building in two of Latin America's most intriguing megacities.

Jewish and Christian perceptions of the Second Temple in Jerusalem are explored here in twenty essays. The main subjects are Jewish public opinion before and after Herod's new building, the temple in Christian origins and the New Testament, and views of the Jewish cultus in the early church. Foci of discussion include the temple in connection with kingship and messianism, positive and negative attitudes to the temple, and Jewish and Christian use of temple imagery. The book was presented by pupils, friends and colleagues to Ernst Bammel, Reader in Jewish and Early Christian Studies in the University of Cambridge. His rich bibliography (1945-91) is printed in conclusion.

This work examines the cultural interchange between Asia and the Western world from earliest times until the modern era. Its purpose is to show something of the still largely unacknowledged debt the peoples of the world owe to each other's civilizations and cultures. This book discusses some of the contributions made by the East to the development of the modern West, for despite the long and crucial years of European domination in Asia, the debt is one-sided. Among other things, the Chinese contributed moveable type, gunpowder, and the magnetic compass--perhaps the three cornerstones of the modern world. And it was the Arabs who kept alive the ancient Greeks' studuies of science and medicine throughout the Dark Ages, while on other levels, India and Japan influenced diverse facets of Western art, culture, and philosophy.--From jacket.

After the rebellious angels were defeated and cast out of heaven, they plot to destroy God's creation, humankind. If they cannot have God's favor, then no one will. Playing the spoiler of all things light and good, fallen angels' mate with human women to pollute the genome. The children of such unions are the Nephilim. This hybrid pairing of rebellious spirit and sin fallen flesh is the newest weapon of evil. These are the giants of old testament times. They are strong, intelligent, and long lived. They crave wealth, power, and ruler ship. They do all they can to manipulate the ancient world into serving them.Unknown entities of darkness, pretending to be competing gods, entice the Nephilim with the secrets of dark knowledge. Every favor the Nephilim seek comes with an infernal price. The price is human sacrifice. Eager to gain more potent secrets of dark knowledge, the Nephilim commune with dark gods seeking ever greater boons. Human suffering is fueling the Nephilim quest for mastery of all the blasphemous dark arts.Most humans are deceived by the Nephilim. The giants have taken the leadership roles in temples across the known world. It is the High Priests of these temples that perform the rituals and sacrifices meant to appease the anger of the dark gods. Or so the Nephilim represent their deeds. One human recognizes the threat and begins a quest to find a monster even the Nephilim will fear. "Infernal Legacy; Earth Bound," by Ralph Kenwright imagines a vivid fictional account of supernatural juggernauts facing off over the human species. Caught in the crossfire between the opposing forces of evil; humans struggle to survive. Is it the end of humanity? Is it a step in the evolution of spiritual warfare? The end is not clear, but the adventure is here.
