A brother of mine is teaching his students through Revelation and this question came up:
"It says that the Son of Man holds the keys to Hades, what does that mean?"
He gave me permission to repost my response:
It's a good thing you're teaching about Revelation the weekend before the world ends.

The first panel pretty much sums up my views on the weekend's pending apocalypse (and velociraptors).
The second panel is a wonderful skewer of interfaith pluralism (which is my second-favorite type of pluralism).
The third panel I do not find the humor in. I think it may have something to do with mathematics or physics.
EDIT: Info on Error Bar. Now, fully informed, I can laugh at the third panel.

Dissident Discipleship: A Spirituality of Self-Surrender, Love of God, and Love of Neighbor
Publishers Weekly: "Drawing on the Anabaptist traditions, Fuller Theological Seminary professor Augsburger explores what spirituality looks like when it imitates Jesus and is directed outward in service to the world, instead of inward on the self."

Robert McAfee Brown
Robert McAfee Brown is one of my favorite authors in his presentation of reading scripture from marginalized perspectives.
The New The Gospel from Everywhere to Everyone (Christian Doctrine in Global Perspective):
Chuck Van Engen: "Samuel Escobar, the dean of Latin American Protestant Evangelical missiologists, gives us here an insightful, careful, concise and passionate overview of the complex and constantly changing reality facing us all in the church's mission today. Escobar demonstrates a clear and compelling missionary commitment to the missional goal that, in the words of Donald McGavran, 'women and men become disciples of Jesus Christ and responsible members of Christ's Church.'"
