Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less

Paperback: $17.50 (excl. taxes)
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Scholars agree Daniel’s prophecies detail history up to 164 B.C., then opinions split. But why not continue following the trail of history? What if we could prove his prophecies are already... More > fulfilled? This verse by verse pursuit takes us a little outside popular explanations, and turns up some surprising answers. Discover: how the Little Horn of the dragon has been in plain sight of history all along; why one prophecy is divided into “weeks”; who is the real prince to come, and who is the true Covenant Maker; that the 2300 evenings and mornings are not mere days on a calendar; how the 1290 and 1335 day prophecy bring us to an oft neglected turning point in Jewish history. Determined to let Scripture speak for itself, Kent Stevens supports every verse with well-known details from history. Even if you end in disagreeing with the author’s compelling arguments, we hope you will conclude with him that Daniel is truly a unique touchstone that challenges and tests the way we view prophecy.< Less

More > the occupation of Judea by the Macedonian Seleucids and the Jewish rebellion against those rulers, the author reveals how incessant internal chaos, infighting and instability finally led to the Jews asking for incorporation into the Roman Empire. Mark Antony and Julius Caesar then appointed their favourite Jew, Herod, as king of Judea, but this brought only a temporary peace. Widespread Jewish sedition caused further outbreaks of violence, and the Roman governor of the province of Syria, Varus, was ordered to march into Jerusalem to crush a rebellion which broke out after Herod’s death in 4 AD. This marked the first major Roman incursion into Judea, and from then on, Josephus relates, the spiral of violence increased year upon year until open war between Rome and the Jews broke out in 66 AD.< Less
