"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews


This is a verse by verse exposition of the book of Joel, followed by a study of its application in Acts chapter 2. In his usual racy style, the author rejects the interpretation commonly held by Pentecostals and charismatics, arguing that a correct understanding can only be gained by carefully considering the original text. Helpful maps, diagrams and indexes make this book excellent value for money. --The Methodist Recorder, UK

Another book from the fluent pen of Michael Penny. Use and abuse of Joel s Prophecy is a verse by verse exposition of Joel followed by a study of its application in the New Testament. --A Bookstalls Newsletter, UK

Varying interpretations of Acts 2 have been the cause of many disagreements and rifts in Christendom. However, few have taken the time and trouble to study the prophet from whom Peter quoted. Many know the five verses he quoted on the Day of Pentecost but..... What was the whole of Joel s message? What was the context of the words Peter quoted? What did Joel mean by them? What did Peter understand by them? Was Joel s prophecy fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost? Or are his words still unfulfilled? And if unfulfilled, when will they come to pass? This book does an excellent job by first presenting the reader with an easy to read exposition of the whole of Joel s prophecy. After that it moves on and discusses Peter s use of it, before considering whether or not Acts 2 was the fulfilment of what Joel wrote. --Search magazine, UK
