Tony Taylor Launches New Science Fiction Novel Tony Taylor Launches New Science Fiction Novel
by BWW News Desk - May 29, 2015

At a mountaintop observatory in Southern California, spacecraft navigator Harris Mitchel and astronomer Diana Muse-Jones discover a dangerous asteroid which may hit the earth within two decades. As the asteroid tumbles through space towards an uncertain impact, Harris and Diana fight bitterly over how to announce their discovery. When Harris goes public to a skeptical world-at the cost of his and Diana's careers-he sends their already turbulent relationship into a blaze of conflicting passions. As his notoriety builds, a fanatical preacher and his unhinged followers stalk him while an obnoxious radio personality provides disruptive help. Harris becomes an unwilling Pied Piper for his own clueless followers hungry for belief and eager for guidance into an uncertain and tumultuous future. In this science fiction drama, the characters battle each other in contests of Damn your world view! against a background of hard science, religion, romance, metaphysical speculation, and the forces of nature versus human passions and dreams. Meanwhile an asteroid hurtles through the solar system and global salvation or disaster hangs in the balance. Praise for "The Darkest Side of Saturn": "This extraordinarily well-crafted and deeply thought-provoking novel ... is nothing short of a science fiction tour de force; a courageous and visionary work that is comparable in thematic power to Walter M. Miller, Jr.'s Hugo Award-winning novel A Canticle for Leibowitz." BlueInk Reviews "A scientific prophecy propels this ominous Armageddon thriller. . . . The psychological basis of this mind-spinning tale is a classic Messiah complex . . . The trip to the final page is filled with bizarre descriptions and poetic madness. . . .Taylor presents a world teetering on the brink of the blackness of nothing and the lightness of life." Foreword Clarion Reviews "A wild ride . . . Mind-boggling at the end." Kirkus Reviews "The Darkest Side of Saturn" is available in both print and eBook formats.

RI Philharmonic's David Wax Passes AwayRI Philharmonic's David Wax Passes Away
by BWW News Desk - Jun 4, 2015

June 4, 2015 – East Providence, RI – David Wax, who served as the Philharmonic's Executive Director from 2000 to 2007, passed away on Thursday, May 21. David came to Rhode Island after an already illustrious career in orchestra management, having served as General Manager of the Minnesota Orchestra and Executive Director of the Houston Symphony. David led the initial years of the Music School/Orchestra merger. He brought enormous intelligence, experience, and kindness to his role as Executive Director. To the Orchestra, he also brought remarkable artistic insight and created our now very successful Rush Hour series. David and his beloved wife Elaine were grand hosts to the many donors, artists, staff, board members and soloists who enjoyed incredible meals at their home. The important relationships they cultivated continue today. For his service, he was awarded the John Hazen White Leadership Award in 2008. Since departing the Philharmonic, David served as interim Executive Director for a number of remarkable arts organizations, including Opera New Jersey. Most recently, he was the Executive Director of the Gamm Theater in Pawtucket. David continued to sing with the Providence Singers and performed on our joint Messiah this past December. Elaine and he were regulars at our concerts. He continued to have a close relationship with many in the Philharmonic family. We mourn his passing and are saddened by this loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Elaine and his daughter Alexandra in this difficult time. A memorial service will be held this Friday, June 5, 11:00 AM, Temple Beth-El, 70 Orchard Avenue, Providence.

The Lord's Children Release RUPTURE OF RAPTUREThe Lord's Children Release RUPTURE OF RAPTURE
by BWW News Desk - Jun 29, 2015

The Lord's Children announce the publication of their latest book, 'Rupture of Rapture' in their continuing efforts to restore the apostolic teachings and traditions to the 21st Century church. The 'Rupture of Rapture' is a bible study book designed to expose rapture, a concept introduced to the church by dispensational theology and to the world at large via popular books and movies. 'Rapture is deceiving millions as a consequence of bad theology and the impeccable marketing of the concept through popular books and movies,' according to author and bible teacher Michael Bollenbach. 'Dispensational Theology eventually became a mainstream teaching of many congregations and does much harm to Christians reared under it,' says Bollenbach, 'by substituting rapture rather than Christ and the Resurrection as the blessed hope of those who believe.' Dispensational theology came to the United States around 1830 through the Plymouth Brethren movement and John Nelson Darby, James H. Brookes and C.I Scofield who authored the Scofield Reference Bible. According to Bollenbach, 'Dispensationalism turned the Christian world sideways with its departure from the apostolic teachings on faith, grace and hope when when it infused bad theology into Scripture and dislodges and replaces the First Resurrection with rapture.' The 'Rupture of Rapture' examines the God-breathed language of Scripture to demonstrate rapture has no place in biblical Christian theology. Bollenbach concludes by saying, 'Judgment is the inevitable result when Hollywood rather than Scripture become the foundation for beliefs and that consequence is unacceptable to The Lord's Children.' The book specifically examines key words like rapture, caught up, coming and resurrection; phrases like blessed hope, thief in the night and day of the Lord; and passages of Scripture like First Thessalonians, First Corinthians 15 and the book of Revelation with particular attention given to the the warning messages of Jesus to the seven assemblies or churches, the Seven Seals of the Scroll, Wrath of God, Wrath of Satan, Wrath of the Lamb and others using only the bible and a concordance. This process sorts out fiction from fact, apostasy from truth and man-made theologies from God breathed revelation. The book, as the title suggests, claims to debunk rapture and restore the historical teaching of the Blessed Hope of believers to be the Second Coming of Christ Jesus to resurrect and change the dead and the living to immortal life. 'Scripture is replete with the command for believers to be ready and to prepare themselves for the Second Coming of Christ,' says Bollenbach, 'but rapture rather ill-prepares them for such eventuality by teaching they are whisked away to heaven prior to the one and only return of Messiah Jesus.' Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with rapture theology, this is a must read for any serious student of eschatology due to its in-depth exegete of Scripture. The book is available exclusively through Amazon-Kindle. The Lord's Children is a non-denominational, home bible assembly anchored in the historic and apostolic Christian theology of Salvation by grace through faith in Messiah Jesus, His crucifixion and bodily resurrection from the dead after three full days and nights in the grave and His bodily ascension to the right hand of God the Father in heaven. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all regenerate believers and leads them into obedience to God and good works as the fruit of salvation. We advocate the New Covenant model of fellowship and discipleship in the homes of believers as taught in Scripture. You may visit our org via our The Lord's Children website. (more...)
