Brothers Keeping:  Joseph and Job

Tristam Joseph (Author)

Joseph and Job were both afflicted with adversity, judged by them to be undeserving, disrupting their lives for reasons discerned by neither one. Were their sentences fair? Did they object to their condemnations to suffer? How did they bear their burdens? Were their vilifications justified? What did they have to do to find redemption? How righteous must the blameless be? How much can anyone be?

Virtue in Dystopia

Tristam Joseph (Author)

A virtuous protagonist, entering life's complexity, struggles to define himself, listening to friends and advisors, some promoting their own truths, others witnessing to eternal truths. His chosen characterization invites trials and tribulations, prevailing justice and injustice, scorn and ridicule, bringing him to discover joy and to bring his existence meaning. He becomes one, not of this world and trusts his being's information will never be destroyed. His beginning is without ending.

Prancing Grace

Tristam Joseph (Author)

To survive humans must live by something, and they develop creeds to ensure their existence. Creeds unfold from reasonable intuitions on questions asking who am I, where did I come from, why am I here, and where am I going. People's insights are universal in trusting an unseen creator to have all the answers, and they create means for pleasing the mover of all creation. Rational inspiration empowers people to introduce doctrines for a mover's approval and appropriate dogmas to worship their maker. Sanctifing their doctrines and dogmas has driven people's existence and contributes more than anything else to history. How does this matter for the future of humanity?
