"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

What can we say of E. W. Bullinger? Others have said that he was a man of intense spirituality, who made a number of outstanding contributions to biblical scholarship and broad-based evangelical Christianity. Such statements are not understatements. The depth of his spirituality and the profundity of his scholarship is, for me, shown by the fact that he was not afraid to change his views and, as he went through life, to offer different explanations on subjects upon which he had commented earlier. That being the case, some people have been a little confused, even frustrated, with Bullinger. Those who have liked and enjoyed his earlier ministry find, when they read his later works, comments and explanations that differ, even contradict. That being the case, we must recognise that the work we have the privilege of reproducing here was written in 1892 and, as such, is not in harmony with some of his later writings, ones with which we are more likely to agree. However, we have not altered these writings to make them conform to his later views. The only alterations have been to change the Roman numerals for the chapter numbers, and to remove the Greek and put the transliteration. However, we are equally aware that if this work had been republished in his later life he would have made alterations to it. When Bullinger wrote this exposition, his theological position was as I have outlined in detail in chapters 19 & 20 of Approaching the Bible, available from the Open Bible Trust and Bible Search Publications Inc. In brief it was as follows: he believed that the Jew was set aside at the end of Acts and that at Acts 28:28 God s salvation was sent to the Gentiles. However, he also held the view that all of Paul s letters were for the church of today, the Church which is the Body of Christ even those written during the time of the Acts of the Apostles! Later he was to see that such a position was not tenable and that only those letters written after Acts 28:28 could be for the Body of Christ, and thus for Gentiles today. In other words, Paul s earlier letters Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians and Hebrews were written for the church of the Acts period, for those Jewish and Gentile Christians of that time. And the same is true of the letters of Peter, James, John and Jude who wrote to the Jewish Christians of the Acts period. There is much we can learn from all of these letters and some of what is written in them is truth for today, but some is not. However, Paul s later letters Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon contained a revelation, a secret, a mystery, concerning Christ and His Body. This was for the Gentiles to whom God s salvation had been sent at Acts 28:28, and these letters contain much more truth for today than the earlier letters. Also, in Part II, The Testimony of the Church, a different scenario has been suggested, namely that truth was restored in the opposite order to which it was lost. That is, the Person of Christ, His Deity, was restored by the church in the early centuries; His suffering and atonement, along with salvation by grace through faith alone, was restored at the Reformation; teaching on His Second Advent was recovered in the 19th Century; and the rediscovery of the Secret concerning the revelation of the Body of Christ came last of all in the last century. For prophetic teaching more in line with Bullinger s later views, readers may care to read such publications as Apocalypse: An Introduction to Revelation by Brian Sherring, or my own contributions to the area of prophetic debate, namely The Dream Daniel 2; Signs of the Second Coming Matthew 24(available as a free download from the Open Bible Trust website); The Last Days! When? and The Day of the Lord! When? --Michael Penny
