Preview

While pleasures are occasional and particular, celebrations are communal, constant, and culminating. They are related to warfare not because they are victory celebrations but because warfare removes the obstacles to celebration imposed by evil. The doctrines of Redemption and Creation are both important for living in the world as celebration.

Keywords: communal; Creation; Redemption; victory; warfare
