Gods. of. Risk. When the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company erected the tallest
building in the world in 1909, it had no religious purpose in mind; the Manhattan
tower simply testified to Met Life's commitment to staying in business. Even that
motive, however, is not too different from what motivated the builders of Salisbury
Cathedral. Built in the thirteenth century, Salisbury still boasts the tallest spire in
England. For centuries, this massive house of worship has told consumers that ...

So, in that early version, Siegfried must confront his fate, confront the gods, and
risk all. The Greek notion of hubris comes to mind. If Briinnhilde will not give up
the ring to save the gods, Siegfried will certainly not give it up to save himself. In
his prose sketch The Nibelung Myth — A Sketch for a Drama, which formed the
basis of Siegfrieds Tod, Wagner describes the river bank encounter in these
terms: The Daughters hanker for the ring, and beg it of Siegfried, who refuses it. (

price? Q Are you willing to risk everything that you have in order to obtain the

Lately, theologians have begun to refer to the first as the “no-risk” view and the
second as the “risk” view.3 On one side stand those who affirm that God's eternal
plan will be executed perfectly, because its fulfillment depends on him alone.
Looking across from the other side of the chasm are those who assert that God
jeopardizes his plan in the actual history of providence, because the plan's
fulfillment requires the cooperation of some other reality.4 Whether we defend the
risk or the ...

Consider a natural risk to be midway between a voluntary risk and a coerced risk.
It is much more acceptable than a coerced risk but somewhat less acceptable
than a voluntary one. A natural risk is “God's coercion.” The public is more
forgiving of God than it is of regulatory agencies or multinational corporations. We
cut slack for God or nature in a way that we do not for agencies or corporations.
Government and industry are far more attractive villains. Take, for example, radon

society is preoccupied with risk and safety. This preoccupation may be explained
in great measure by the simple fact that we have become accustomed to living
with the significant reduction in the risks to health and impoverishment that
modern technology has provided. The dramatic increase in life expectancy in the
past century is a direct consequence of health care technologies as well as those
that provide clean water, cheap food, and safe disposal of waste. As a
consequence, we ...

During the five epagomenal days, the five days "over and above the year,"1 the
ingenious contract that bound the gods to their earthly heir was seriously
threatened by the rupture these days provoked, confronting pharaoh and the
gods with the risk of mutual destruction. At the end of the year, both the king's
strength and the energy contained in the representations of the gods waned; they
had to be restored at all costs. King and gods accordingly underwent rites of
regeneration.
