He elicits a subtle element of terror and justice through his writing, delivered without a heavy hand. His exceptional imagery effects readers in a way that leaves them chilled and disturbed; causing the kind of behavior that will leave friends asking "what's bothering you," for days afterwards." D.L. Russell, editor of Strange, Weird & Wonderful Magazine"Author Arnold has a deft touch with horror that will leave a chill in your spine, but without the violence and gore of much modern horror. The stories remind me of Ray Bradbury at his darkest with their ability to play on the difference between what we know might happen and what we want to happen. These are complex tales with layers below the surface enjoyment of a story well written." Armchair Interviews
Theological antinomy : a complementarian model for paradox by Joel Arnold( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Most questions of hermeneutics or prolegomena are unavoidable -- even those who ignore the problem still assume a position by default. Similarly, apart from completely denying either the existence of paradox or any role for logic, it is impossible to avoid relying on some type of discriminating criteria between the two. The problem is that though every theologian relies on these criteria, most do so by assumption and without self-critical analysis, resulting in subjectivity and inconsistency. The same problems are paradoxical for some and logically correlated by others because theologians use contrary definitions of biblical paradox, and naturally, such differences result in polemical conflict. As writers attack one another regarding what should be properly understood as paradoxical, they appeal to no set of explicit, objective criteria; rather, their definitions of paradox seem to be controlled by their polemical agendas and theological conclusions. - Need for this study
