      Accelerating seismic activity in late Meiji Japan climaxed in the legendary Great Nobi Earthquake of , which rocked the main island from Tokyo to Osaka, killing thousands. Ironically, the earthquake brought down many modern structures built on the advice of foreign architects and engineers, while leaving certain traditional, wooden ones standing.   Today, a new form of barbarism reigns. Many believers are blind to it, and their churches are too weak to resist. Politics offers little help in this spiritual crisis. What is needed is the Benedict Option, a strategy that draws on the authority of Brand: Penguin Publishing Group.   The book’s structure is interesting and also provides a more kaleidoscopic view of mythology, race, and history. But for me, the best reason to pick up this book is the gorgeous writing, full of beautiful and terrifying imagery. In this passage, villagers in China decide to punish a woman who became pregnant while her husband was away in America.
