Passing by the dragon : the Biblical tales of Flannery O'Connor by J. Ramsey Michaels( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book attempts a close reading of the fiction of Flannery O'Connor, story by story, with one eye on her use of the Bible, and her view of the Bible in relation to her own work. After introductory chapters on O'Connor's markings in her own Roman Catholic Bible, her book reviews in diocesan newspapers, and her impatience with her wayward readers, Michaels looks first at her two novels, Wise Blood and The Violent Bear It Away, and then at seventeen of her short stories from her two collections, A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Everything That Rises Must Converge. Michaels takes notice of O'Connor's explicit references to the Bible (or Bibles) in her stories, and looks more particularly to the ways in which the stories are driven at least in part by specific biblical texts. Among the themes that emerge are alienation or displacement, what it means to be "good" the relation between body and spirit and between the Old Testament and the New, issues of race and gender, and above all what O'Connor once called "the action of grace in territory held largely by the devil."--Book cover

John by J. Ramsey Michaels( Book )

21 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in English and Korean and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume in the New International Biblical Commentary introduces and analyzes the major themes of the Fourth Gospel and carefully weaves those themes into the whole story of the good news. Michaels takes pains to offer modern readers fresh insights into John's mysteries and symbols that first-century readers would not have missed. The commentary's format will suit both general readers and serious students, the section-by-section commentary is based on the NIV, technical notes are presented separately, and all Greek is transliterated. - from publisher's description
The Gospel of John by J. Ramsey Michaels( Book )

9 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this detailed commentary J. Ramsey Michaels gives primary attention to the Gospel of John in its present form rather than to the sources or traditions behind it. Michaels examines both the Gospel's literary character and its theological significance for the Christian community in its own time and through the ages. --from publisher description
Servant and son : Jesus in parable and Gospel by J. Ramsey Michaels( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revelation by J. Ramsey Michaels( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interpretations of the book of Revelation are numerous and varied. The preterist view focuses on first-century social analysis of John's environment. The church-historical view sees the Revelation as a prophetic survey of the history of the church. The futurist view sees the book as a precise prediction of unfolding events in the yet-to-come end of the world. The trouble with all three, argues J. Ramsey Michaels, is that they make the Revelation of John irrelevant to Christians throughout much of history. Failing to take seriously what John saw, such interpreters do not comprehend the value of the Revelation to Christians in any age. Michaels strives to recapture the Revelation as a prophetic letter of testimony, a testimony as relevant to today's church as it was to John's as it faces evil and looks for the victory of the Lamb

6 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inerrancy and common sense( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two views confront each other: one, that Scripture is inerrant in all that it teaches -- what Scripture teaches, God teaches; the other, that Scripture is inerrant in matters of faith and practice only -- what is taught in other realms may be mistaken. - Preface
The news from Babylon : a theology of First Peter by J. Ramsey Michaels( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published as Word Biblical Themes: 1 Peter (Word Publishing, 1989), this volume explores Peter's effort to build a sense of identity and responsibility among the Christians to whom he wrote, scattered through several Roman provinces in Asia Minor. Their past is a biblical past, he tells them, rooted in the history of the Jews as the people of God. Consequently, they are called to live as strangers in a strange land, never fully at home in Roman society. Their present journey is a journey in the footsteps of Jesus, in paths of servanthood, and undeserved suffering. Their future is the com
Revelation by J. Ramsey Michaels( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interpretations of the book of Revelation abound. One view suggests that the book indirectly describes events in John's own time. Another interpretation sees Revelation as a prophetic survey of the history of the church. Still another views the book as a precise prediction of the end of the world. The trouble with all three, argues Ramsey Michaels, is that they make the Revelation of John irrelevant to Christians throughout much of history. Failing to take seriously what John saw, such interpreters fail to comprehend the value of Revelation to Christians in any age. Michaels restores Revelation to its rightful status as a prophetic letter of testimony, a testimony as relevant to the church today as it was in John's day. In this stimulating, pastorally oriented commentary, readers will find an introduction with background material concerning authorship, date and purpose, as well as a summary of important theological themes. A passage-by-passage exposition follows that focuses on what John had to say to his original readers in order to see the relevance of his book for the church today. - Publisher
