Christian Response to Unremitting Utter Evil Feb 15, 2006
In this book Dr. Day methodically examines the scriptural framework for proper Christian response to persecution of God's people that is unremitting and unrepentant. It is a must read for all Christians, as Christians are emerging as the primary target of the extremist cry of "kill the infidel." More than five centuries have passed since Christians in the West have personally had to face such an issue, and now is the time to become spiritually prepared. Don't miss this one. It is the definitive modern analysis of the subject.
Best Study of Imprecatory Prayer Available Nov 12, 2005
This is the most careful, balanced, and biblical treatment of this subject available. Day addresses all the current views on imprecations, the objections lodged against them, and provides in-depth exegetical discussions of three representative imprecatory Psalms. It's a valuable and important work on an issue that confuses many Christians.
Fine Book on Imprecatory Psalms Oct 31, 2005
John Day has written a fine book on the imprecatory Psalms. He shows they are in keeping with God's standards of justice and with his own covenant promises to protect his people. By documenting that imprecations continue in the New Testament, he demonstrates they are relevant for the church to pray today.
He includes a large number of endnotes for those who want more technical detail. The book contains more references to Ancient Near Eastern texts than the average lay person would find relevant, but upholds the inspiration of scripture. For those who liked James Adams' "War Psalms of the Prince of Peace," this is a more thorough treatment.
