About this deal

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. Jordan Middler of Video Games Chronicle awarded the title 2 stars out of 5, stating, "For every well-developed moment of story interaction, for every revelation that took us by surprise, and for every interesting piece of art, it’s undercut by dialogue that vacillates between contemporary drama and first-year uni project, and an art style that benefits the quiet moments, but utterly wrenches any momentum of action from the piece.

Writing for GameSpot, Mark Delaney gave high praise to the motion comic artwork, audio drama presentation, quality voice acting, thoughtful thematic material, impactful choices, and the developer's keen understanding of pacing and characterization, but took issue with out-of-place action scenes and an ending hampered by sequel baiting.It invites us all to reflect in unconventional ways about our assumptions, suspicions, and beliefs through a conventional form of meditating upon Christ’s seven last sayings on the cross as he dies, placing each of those last sayings into conversation with reasons to doubt. Revd Dr Paul Dominiak provides the reader with some novel ways of approaching the seven last words which raise interesting questions and open one's eyes to new ideas.

The book acknowledges head on the tendency of the Church down the ages and in our own day to be dogmatic and narrow-minded, to oppress, to fail to reflect God's love for all, to be reluctant to acknowledge that there are no easy answers to why there is so much suffering in the world. Sheryl’s unique vision of the dramatic light penetrating the vast skies is recognisable as her distinctive style. That’s because good characters and storytelling make for a universal experience, and this is a project that has both. While not a terrible book, this attempts to do big things, centred around the word of Christ in the cross, and it doesn't quite manage it.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. For generations, Christian communities have meditated upon the seven last words of Jesus on the cross. As the introduction states, when dusk falls upon a person’s life, the words they speak gain an added significance.

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. A series of chapters on the seven last words of Christ take us well beyond the normal boundaries of Christian thinking. Sheryl has been painting professionally since 1999 and divides her time between her studios in Leeds and Weardale, County Durham. 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. I hope people come ready to struggle with questions about faith, belief, and doubt without predetermined conclusions.I would give the book 5 stars for the content, but I think it could do with some editing to make it a bit easier to read. Falling Dusk, Morning Star, and Melting Ice, were already awake, wrestling together and trying to see who could jump the highest.
