Description

I highly recommend it for anyone who wants something that doesn't just pose the normal run of questions usually found in Lent books. Zoe tracks Jay down, revealing that he is either in prison or a fugitive in the Canadian wilderness; if he escaped with Vanessa in 1998, Jay explains that although he and Vanessa spent many years together, she eventually grew tired of living in hiding and moved to California. Stan has been a professor of Indigenous Belonging at Charles Sturt University and in August 2023 was appointed as the inaugural Director of the Constructive Institute Asia Pacific in the Faculty of Arts at Monash University, dedicated to working with media organisations, citizens and advocacy groups, faith-based organisations, thought leaders and political figures to improve the quality of public discourse. Writing for The Guardian, Keza MacDonald gave the title 4 stars out of 5, concluding, " As Dusk Falls comfortably exceeds the standard of its genre when it comes to plotting, characterization, performance and the impressive malleability of the story. I hope people can enter the book with a sense of hospitality, openness, and charity to views that they may not ordinarily find themselves inclined to welcome at first.

In an age of uncertainty and suspicion, Paul Dominiak explores how each of the seven last words attends to doubt as the refining fire of faith, rather than as its enemy. I hope people come ready to struggle with questions about faith, belief, and doubt without predetermined conclusions. He came to the university after a high-profile journalistic career including six years as chief political correspondent and national affairs editor for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and The Canberra Times.The second is a line from the German philosopher Hegel that ‘the owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of dusk. The brothers robbed the Sheriff to pay off his debts and remove the threat to their lives from his debtors.

The subject matter is considered appropriate to Lent because the chapters reflect on the ‘seven last words’ of Jesus on the cross. Stan Grant is the Vice Chancellor’s Chair of Australian-Indigenous Belonging at Charles Sturt University and the ABC‘s International Affairs Analyst. In an age of uncertainty and suspicion, Paul Dominiak's new book, The Falling of Dusk, explores how each of the seven last words of Jesus on the Cross attends to doubt as the refining fire of faith, rather than as its enemy. That’s because good characters and storytelling make for a universal experience, and this is a project that has both. It tries to address the main objections to Christianity in 7 chapters, accept why people go along with them, and then say why they're wrong.The Lenten journey towards faith and true belief needs to take into account its counterpart - doubt.

Falling Dusk, Morning Star, and Melting Ice, were already awake, wrestling together and trying to see who could jump the highest. Each of them engages with someone well-known to be critical of Christianity and organised religion, recognises the validity of some of their criticism, and challenges the reader to do the same.This book is unusual in my experience of Lent books in its openness about doubt and in the amount of space given to the words of atheists. He is also Director of Studies in Bachelor of Theology for Ministry Exams and Acting Director of Studies in Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion.
