  • God In The Modern Wing


    Should Christians even bother with the modern wing at the art museum? After all, modern art and artists are often caricatured as rabidly opposed to God, the church-indeed, to faith of any kind. But is that all there is to the story?

    In this Studies in Theology and the Arts volume, coeditors Cameron J. Anderson and G. Walter Hansen gather the reflections of artists, art historians, and theologians who collectively offer a more complicated narrative of the history of modern art and its place in the Christian life. Here, readers will find insights on the work and faith of artists including Marc Chagall, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, and more.

    For those willing to look with eyes of faith, they may just find that God is present in the modern wing too.

  • Invitation : A Theology Of Evangelism


    Moving beyond conversionism

    Many Christians today are uncomfortable with older, simpler notions about evangelism as conversionism but see as insufficient the more progressive model of evangelism as hospitality. Transcending that dichotomy, Richard Osmer advances a theology of evangelism as a multifaceted act of invitation into Christ-following community.

    Osmer begins by exploring references to evangelism in the New Testament-both in the Gospels and in the letters of Paul. He then enters into dialogue with Karl Barth to work through ideas of church witness and the relationship of evangelism to salvation. Finally, with lucid explanations and illustrative case studies, he offers guidance for pastors, laity, and students to use as they reimagine how evangelism might best happen in their churches and missional organizations. Osmer’s approach mirrors the conviction, stated in his introduction, that our concept of evangelism must be formed and constantly reformed by keeping the Bible, church doctrine, and practical theology in conversation.

    Foundational to Osmer’s rendering of evangelism as invitation is the essential truth that it is Christ and the Holy Spirit who calls converts and makes disciples-not Christians. Thus, we can invite our neighbors to the wedding feast while remaining reassured that the table is already set.

  • 1 Lord Two Hands


    Trying to get your kids out the door while making their lunches or trying to cook dinner and do the laundry can make you feel as if you are playing tug of war. Life is constantly pulling everyone in a thousand different directions and it can be difficult to know which way to go!

    Individuals face this same decision when they are trying to balance their earthly lives and their Heavenly lives. Earthly life is how you navigate and interact in your everyday life as a citizen of your community. Your Heavenly life is how you act as a member of your Heavenly kingdom.

    However, these two kingdoms have contradicting morals, ethics, and differing views on things such as religious freedom. Successfully maneuvering both worlds while upholding your faith can be challenging.

    Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and Rev. John Pless visit previous essays written on how to maintain this balance.

  • Christian Ethics


    How can Christians make decisions in a morally complex world? What makes ethics particularly ‘Christian’? One of the primary aims of Christian ethics is to discover how we can convert our work toward God’s purposes so that God can make our work holy. In Christian Ethics, TImothy R. Gaines illuminates this topic as something the people of God can use to reorient our lives toward the way of Jesus and the mission of God in the world. Reason alone will not convert our work to the way of Jesus. Christians are called to action in God’s created world, which is why reasoning engages practice in the chapters of thsi book so that Wesleyan readers can think and act morally in ways that are faithfully Christian and holy in response to the leadering of God.

    Christians are used to hearing theological language in the church but may not feel they have adequate resources to enhance their understanding of what certain terms or concepts mean. The Wesleyan Theology Series aims to discuss Christian doctrines in accessible language that states clearly what we believe and why. Each volume is written by an author with a particular expertise who also has the ability to simplify and clarify complex ideas. The Wesleyan Theology Series is written specifically for the theologically curious layperson, student, or pastor. Topics include: the Trinity, creation, eschatology, the church, the sacraments, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, Scripture, sin, grace, salvation, sanctification, Christian ethics, and atonement.

  • Perhaps : Reclaiming The Space Between Doubt And Dogmatism


    The Christian faith requires faith.

    That means that believers are sometimes faced with uncertainty. But is all uncertainty bad? Instead of affirming either extreme of unchecked doubt or zealous dogmatism, theologian Joshua McNall encourages readers to find a space that allows them to ask difficult questions and exercise their imagination in order to move to a position of trust. With such a faith in the living God, we can seek further understanding by being open to say, I wonder . . . or to ask, What if . . . ? Indeed, embracing a stance of perhaps might lead to greater faith.

  • 5 Things Theologians Wish Biblical Scholars Knew


    The disciplines of theology and biblical studies should serve each other, and they should serve both the church and the academy together.

    But the relationship between them is often marked by misunderstandings, methodological differences, and cross-discipline tension. Theologian Hans Boersma here highlights five things he wishes biblical scholars knew about theology. In a companion volume, biblical scholar Scot McKnight reflects on five things he wishes theologians knew about biblical studies. With an irenic spirit as well as honesty about differences that remain, in these books Boersma and McKnight seek to foster understanding between their disciplines so they might once again serve hand in hand.

  • Welcome Holy Spirit


    As the renowned scholar Thomas Oden noted, No subject of Christian teaching is more prone to fanaticism and novelty and subjectivism than that of the Holy Spirit.

    The Bible’s own metaphors for the Spirit are as elusive as they are evocative–wind, oil, flame, water, dove–making pneumatology a mysterious study. But shying away from the topic is no solution. Gordon Smith encourages us to seek both fresh understanding and fresh experience of the Spirit through openness to learning more, no matter what our theological tradition. In this way, as we hold biblical convictions firmly but gracefully, the guiding principles of discernment and humility will help us intentionally live Spirit-responsive lives day by day. Welcome, Holy Spirit is a much-needed master class with a trustworthy and encouraging teacher. How can we cultivate an understanding of the Holy Spirit that helps us experience the presence of the Spirit in worship, in witness, in joy and sorrow, in seasons of blessing and times of difficulty alike, all the while honoring the fullness of the Trinity? That is the objective of the reflections in this book: an attentiveness to the Spirit, not to replace Christ as the focus of our lives and worship but to bring us truly into the presence of the living and ascended Lord. It is to this end that we pray, Welcome, Holy Spirit.

  • Between Heaven And Hell


    On November 22, 1963, three great men died within a few hours of each other: C. S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Aldous Huxley. All three believed, in different ways, that death is not the end of human life. Suppose they were right, and suppose they met after death. How might the conversation go? Peter Kreeft imagines their discussion as part of the great conversation that has been going on for centuries about life’s biggest questions. Does human life have meaning? Is it possible to know about life after death? What if one could prove that Jesus was God? With Kennedy taking the role of a modern humanist, Lewis representing Christian theism and Huxley advocating Eastern pantheism, the dialogue is lively and informative. With clarity and wit, Between Heaven and Hell presents insightful responses to common objections to the Christian faith. This classic apologetics work is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press.

  • Fountain Of Salvation


    A trinitarian exposition of Christian soteriology

    The relation of God and salvation is not primarily a problem to be solved. Rather, it is the blazing core of Christian doctrine, where the triune nature of God and the truth of the gospel come together.

    Accordingly, a healthy Christian theology must confess the doctrine of the Trinity and the doctrine of salvation as closely related, mutually illuminating, and strictly ordered. When the two doctrines are left unconnected, both suffer. The doctrine of the Trinity begins to seem altogether irrelevant to salvation history and Christian experience, while soteriology meanwhile becomes naturalized, losing its transcendent reference. If they are connected too tightly, on the other hand, human salvation seems inherent to the divine reality itself. Deftly navigating this tension, Fountain of Salvation relates them by expounding the doctrine of eternal processions and temporal missions, ultimately showing how they inherently belong together.

    The theological vision expounded here by Fred Sanders is one in which the holy Trinity is the source of salvation in a direct and personal way, as the Father sends the Son and the Holy Spirit to enact an economy of revelation and redemption. Individual chapters show how this vision informs the doctrines of atonement, ecclesiology, Christology, and pneumatology-all while directly engaging with major modern interpreters of the doctrine of the Trinity. As Sanders affirms throughout this in-depth theological treatise, the triune God is the fountain from which all other doctrine flows-and no understanding of salvation is complete that does not begin there.

  • 50 Most Important Theological Terms


    Some people make theology complicated. Here’s what you need to know.

    Theology can be intimidating, full of big words and lofty ideas. Yet theological terms aren’t just for professors to argue about in the ivory tower. These powerful words have important meanings for the everyday Christian, too. They aren’t reserved for academic theologians. These terms belong to you!

    In 50 Most Important Theological Terms, Moody professors David Finkbeiner and Brian Tucker offer helpful explanations of the -isms and -ologies of Bible doctrine that you’ve heard of but aren’t sure what they mean. Beyond mere explanations, the authors help you understand why these terms matter, not just for classroom textbooks but for the book of real life. You’ll learn about questions like:

    *How is Jesus fully God and fully human at the same time?
    *By what means was sin passed to everyone from Adam?
    *Do humans have only a body and soul, or a body, soul, and spirit?
    *Is repentance from sin part of saving faith?
    *And much more . . .

    Despite what you may have heard, theology actually is relevant. Don’t miss out on the meanings of theological terms. Get the answers from experts and let your confusion turn to understanding.

  • On The End Of The World And On Hell


    In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, God creates the heavens, the earth, the sea, and all of its things. It’s only fitting that in the last two chapters in the last book of the Bible, Revelation, that He reveals what is to happen at the end of creation and the world. This Theological Commonplace looks at the End of the Word, Hell, and Eternal Death.

    In this translation of Johann Gerhard’s work, the reader will be introduced to the onomatology of different words and phrases at the beginning of each topic before diving into crucial questions about the topic. Pulling from Scripture and addressing questions such as Is there a hell? or Will the end of the world come? the reader will be able to see sound biblical arguments answering these questions. Additionally, the antithesis is given room to be discussed to show how both sides of the argument have come to fruition.

  • Person Of Interest


    Dateline featured cold-case detective and best-selling author J. Warner Wallace investigates Jesus, the most significant person in history, like one of his missing body, cold-cases, demonstrating why Jesus still matters today, even in a world that is skeptical of the Bible.

    Detective J. Warner Wallace listened to a pastor talk about Jesus and wondered why anyone would think Jesus was a person of interest.

    Wallace was skeptical of the Bible, but he’d investigated several no-body, missing person cases in which there was no crime scene, no physical evidence, and no victim’s body. He successfully identified and convicted the killers in these cases, even without evidence from the scene.

    Could the historical life and actions of Jesus be investigated in the same way? Could the truth about Jesus be uncovered even without a body or a crime scene? In Person of Interest, Wallace describes his own personal investigative journey from atheism to Christianity, as he employs a unique investigative strategy to confirm the historicity and deity of Jesus–without relying on the New Testament manuscripts.

    Imagining a scenario in which every New Testament document has been destroyed, Wallace carefully sifts through the evidence from history alone to reconstruct the identity of Jesus as the world’s most important person of interest.

    Person of Interest will:
    *Invite readers into the life of a cold-case detective as he uncovers the truth about Jesus, using the same approach he also employs to solve a real murder case

    *Teach readers how to become good detectives, using an innovative and unique ‘fuse’ and ‘fallout’ investigative strategy they can also use to examine other claims of history

    *Show how Jesus changed the world and why He still matters today

    *Help readers to explore common objections to Christianity

    Creative, compelling, and unique in its approach, Person of Interest will strengthen the faith of believers, while engaging those who are skeptical and distrusting of the New Testament.

  • Challenge Of Jesus


    In the midst of many well-publicized and controversial books on Jesus, N. T. Wright’s lectures and writings have been widely recognized for providing a fresh, provocative, and credible portrait.

    Originally published in 1999 and with a new introduction in 2015, The Challenge of Jesus presents an accessible introduction to the quest for the historical Jesus and why it matters for the Christian faith. Out of his own commitment to both historical scholarship and Christian ministry, Wright challenges us to roll up our sleeves and take seriously the study of the historical Jesus. He writes, Many Christians have been, frankly, sloppy in their thinking and talking about Jesus, and hence, sadly, in their praying and in their practice of discipleship. . . . Only by hard, historical work can we move toward a fuller comprehension of what the Gospels themselves were trying to say. This classic work is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press.

  • God Who Gave You Birth


    Over time our ideas about God and religion tend to match the stage of our own maturity and the level of our own consciousness. In addition to our different ideas of God, there are also those who profess some form of monotheistic religion but worship other gods: the power of the economy, military strength, fame. Perhaps they even use–or misuse–the name of God or credit God with whatever is gained.

    Thus, the challenge for our times is this: how do we think of God as Jesus introduces God to us? While exploring Scripture, the thoughts of theologians, Benedictine monasticism, Jewish and Islamic traditions, along with his own personal reflections, Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam, shows us what it means to be church, to be a follower of Jesus, and to be like God: to imitate the self-emptying of God and Christ. We are called to show the world God as Jesus reveals God to be: merciful, compassionate, healer to all.

  • Jesus The Spirit Baptizer


    In Jesus the Spirit Baptizer, globally recognized Pentecostal theologian Frank Macchia offers a Christology based on the premise that Pentecost is the culminating point of the identity and mission of Jesus. Drawing from both classical and contemporary sources, Macchia probes the fundamental connection between the person of Christ and the Holy Spirit, arguing that Christology properly explicates Jesus as the one who bears the Spirit so as to impart the Spirit to all flesh.

  • Atando Cabos : Latinx Contributions To Theological Education


    Decolonizing theological education and restoring agency to the people

    Latinx Protestantism is a rapidly growing element of American Christianity-in both Pentecostal and non-charismatic forms. How should institutions of theological education in the United States welcome and incorporate the gifts of these populations into their work? This is an especially difficult question considering the painful history of colonization in Latin America and the Caribbean, an agenda in which theological education was long complicit.

    In this book, Elizabeth Conde-Frazier takes stock of the cabos sueltos-loose ends-left over from the history of Latinx Christianity, including the ways the rise of Pentecostalism disrupted existing power structures and opened up new ways for Latinx people to assert agency. Then, atando cabos-tying these loose ends together-she reflects on how a new paradigm, centered on the work of the Holy Spirit, can serve to decolonize theological education going forward, bringing about an in-breaking of the kingdom of God. Conde-Frazier illustrates how this in-breaking would bring changes in epistemology, curriculum, pedagogy, and models for financial sustainability. Atando Cabos explores each of these topics and proposes a collaborative ecology that stresses the connections between theological education and wider communities of faith and practice. Far from taking a position of insularity, Atando Cabos works from the particularities of the Latinx Protestant context outward to other communities that are wrestling with similar issues so that, by the end, it is a call for transformation-a new reformation-for the entire Christian church.

  • Ethics Beyond Rules


    In Ethics Beyond Rules Keith Stanglin offers a clear and accessible guide for thoughtful Christians who want to lead ethical lives. Stanglin’s easy-to-understand Christian ethical system doesn’t have a long list of rules to follow but instead bases moral decision-making on Christian love.

    Stanglin is concerned less with a comprehensive ethics and scholarly discourse than with introducing everyone to important moral principles and modeling a way to reason through concrete issues. This resource does not answer every ethical question Christians face today, though it does provide examples such as abortion, sexual ethics, consumerism, technology, and politics. Instead, Stanglin provides a love-based framework for moral decisions that stands with the historic Christian faith, giving Christians the tools to consider the moral problems of today and the foundation to confront new issues in the years to come.

  • God Has Spoken


    A Repackaged Edition of J. I. Packer’s Robust Defense of Biblical Inerrancy

    With the Bible’s historical and scientific accuracy under attack, many Christians have abandoned their long-standing conviction that it is truly God’s word. How should the church respond to doubts about the trustworthiness of Scripture?

    In this repackaged edition of God Has Spoken, late theologian J. I. Packer mounts a formative defense of the inerrancy of the Bible, calling readers to reclaim the unity between inspiration (how God has spoken) and revelation (what God has spoken). Packer argues that the doctrine of Scripture is essential because it is how Christians learn about the character of God, his purpose for the world, and their fallen state. Without this, mankind is left without the saving message of the gospel. This classic text continues to be relevant today as it challenges a new generation of readers to trust in God’s word as the inerrant source of truth.

  • Cruciformity : Paul’s Narrative Spirituality Of The Cross, 20th Anniversary (Ann


    When it was first published in 2001, Cruciformity broke new ground with a vision of Pauline spirituality that illuminated what it meant to be a person or community in Christ. Beginning with Paul’s express desire to know nothing but Christ crucified, Gorman showed how true spirituality is telling the story, in both life and words, of God’s self-revelation in Jesus, so that we might practice cruciformity-the impossible possibility of conformity to the crucified Christ.

    Two decades later, Gorman’s seminal work is still a powerful model for combining biblical studies and theological reflection to make Paul’s letters more immediately relevant to contemporary Christian life. This twentieth-anniversary edition includes a new foreword by Nijay Gupta-a next-generation Pauline scholar heavily influenced by Gorman-as well as an afterword by the author, in which he reflects on the legacy of Cruciformity in the church and the academy, including his own subsequent work in Pauline theology.

  • Overflow : How The Joy Of The Trinity Inspires Our Mission


    What does the Trinity have to do with missions? As it turns out . . . everything.

    Too often, we put theology in one part of the Christian life and missions in another-and they never meet. A doctrine like the Trinity belongs in the intellectual realm, while missions belongs with the practical parts of life. Or so we think. But is that really the way it should be?

    Michael Reeves wants you to understand that the doctrine of the Trinity has everything to do with the practice of missions. When a Christian sees the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as divine persons who are so full of love that it radiates and overflows into creation-and into the lives of human beings-our perspective on missions is radically changed. No longer is missions an obligation or a drudgery. Instead, realizing the abundance of love that goes forth from God, we who have received and delighted in such love are motivated to go forth as well.

    Let the radiance of God’s triune beauty capture your heart. Then God’s great mission won’t be a chore, but will naturally overflow from your joyous delight in Him.

  • Essential Scriptures : A Handbook Of The Biblical Texts For Key Doctrines


    Which Bible verses support that doctrine?

    All good theology is grounded in the Word of God. Yet sometimes it’s hard to keep track of which scriptures support certain doctrines. That’s where The Essential Scriptures comes in. With an easy-to-use handbook format, this reference work moves through the main headings of systematic theology, offering full quotations of the biblical verses that undergird various doctrines. No more jumping back and forth between multiple sources. The Essential Scriptures puts it all in one place, providing not only the biblical support but also a learned exposition of how those passages serve as the basis for the doctrine under discussion.

    Drawing from the literal and trustworthy New American Standard Bible, scholar and theologian Kevin Zuber gives you the biblical underpinnings for every doctrine, organized around the primary headings of systematic theology:
    *Theology Proper
    *Anthropology and Hamartiology

  • Luthers Works Theological And Polemical


    Martin Luther’s theological writings, perhaps without exception, arise from controversy or address it. For him there could be no building up of right teaching about God, humanity, the world, angels and devils without at the same time removing false teaching about all these things. Nowhere is this more clear than in the selection of short works included here. Spanning nearly his entire career as a reformer, this volume presents a variety of Luther’s theological and polemical writings from 1522 to his last days in 1546.

  • Man Of Sorrows King Of Glory


    What the Person and Work of Jesus Really Means

    Evangelicals, rightly called people of the cross, look to Jesus’s death and resurrection as the central points of his earthly mission. However, many Christians have questions about these pivotal events and what followed-Why did Jesus rise from the dead? Why did he ascend into heaven? What is he doing now?

    In Man of Sorrows, King of Glory, Jonty Rhodes uses the traditional roles of Jesus as prophet, priest, and king (often referred to as his threefold office) and his humiliation at the cross and exaltation at the resurrection (often referred to as his two states) to address these questions. As believers explore Jesus’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension, they will develop a deeper appreciation for God’s plan to reclaim sinners.

  • What God Has To Say About Our Bodies


    What does God have to say about our bodies?

    To modern secular culture, the human body is little more than a vehicle for free self-expression-our bodies belong to us, and we can do with them as we please. In this way, the prevailing culture has lost sight of the true significance of the body. Similarly, Christians also tend to underemphasize the significance of the physical body. In What God Has to Say about Our Bodies, Sam Allberry argues that the Bible has a lot to say about the body, and shows how the practical significance of Scripture’s teaching on this topic impacts how Christians should think and behave. Organized around three categories-what God intended for the body (creation), the impact of sin on the body (fall), and how God will redeem the body (redemption)-the book provides believers with a balanced and accessible theology of the body as they seek to glorify God in everything they do.

  • Changed Into His Likeness


    When it comes to the Christian life, what exactly can we expect with regard to personal transformation?

    Gary Millar addresses this most basic question in this NSBT volume. After surveying some contemporary psychological approaches to the issue of change and discussions of biblical anthropology, he explores the nature of gospel-shaped change, exposing the dangers of both promising too much and expecting too little. The central part of his study focuses on life in the middle–between the change that is brought about when we become Christians and the final change in which we will be raised with Christ. Millar presents a case for reading the character studies of major Old Testament figures from Noah to Solomon as depicting a declension throughout their lives and their innate sinfulness and lack of change. This problem is resolved in the establishment of a new covenant, which promises both individual and corporate transformation in the power of the Spirit. This transformation is presented in the New Testament as a rich and complex process, which cannot be contained or adequately described by one set of images. Transformation is real, deep-rooted and far-reaching. In developing an integrated biblical theology of transformation, Millar draws on the contributions of key thinkers, including Augustine, Aquinas, Calvin, Edwards, Owen, Newton, James K. A. Smith and the Biblical Counselling movement. He concludes with a careful synthesis, charting a middle way between the errors of over-realized and under-realized eschatology. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

  • T F Torrance As Missional Theologian


    Christ has ascended. Yet his work continues.

    Much has been made of a missional view of the church in recent theological literature, but largely overlooked in this discussion has been the contribution that T. F. Torrance, the late Church of Scotland minister and theologian, can make to this discussion. Addressing this lacuna, theologian and pastor Joseph Sherrard considers how Torrance’s theology can inform the church’s understanding of its ministry and mission–in particular, his appeal to the church’s participation in the ascended Christ’s threefold office as king, prophet, and priest. Through the ministry of the church, Christ is still at work.

  • Notes Of A Native Daughter


    On bearing witness to more liberating futures in theological education

    In Notes of a Native Daughter, Keri Day testifies to structural inequalities and broken promises of inclusion through the eyes of a black woman who experiences herself as both stranger and friend to prevailing models of theological education. Inviting the reader into her religious world-a world that is African American and, more specifically, Afro-Pentecostal-she not only uncovers the colonial impulses of theological education in the United States but also proposes that the lived religious practices and commitments of progressive Afro-Pentecostal communities can help the theological academy decolonize and reenvision multiple futures.

    Deliberately speaking in the testimonial form-rather than the more conventional mode of philosophical argument-Day bears witness to the truth revealed in her and others’ lived experience in a voice that is unapologetically visceral, emotive, demonstrative, and, ultimately, communal. With prophetic insight, she addresses this moment when the fastest growing group of students and teachers are charismatic and neo-Pentecostal people of color for whom theological education is currently a site of both hope and harm. Calling for repentance, she provides a redemptive narrative for moving forward into a diverse future that can be truly liberating only when it allows itself to be formed by its people and the Spirit moving in them.

  • Companion To The Theology Of John Webster


    An overview and analysis of John Webster’s seminal contributions to Christian theology

    At the time of his death, John Webster was widely hailed as one of the leading Christian theologians in the world. Over the course of three decades, he produced groundbreaking studies on the theologies of Eberhard Jungel and Karl Barth and, especially since the turn of the millennium, numerous books and essays on various themes in Christian dogmatics. He then intended to write an encyclopedic systematic theology-a project sadly never able to be completed.

    No substitute is possible for that lost opus, but the contributors offer this volume as an homage to Webster and an aid to those who want to learn from him. A Companion to the Theology of John Webster begins with an introductory section on Webster’s theological development, then continues into an extensive overview of Webster’s contributions to contemporary discussions of particular doctrines, and ends with an epilogue suggesting how Webster’s theology might have unfolded had he lived longer and proposing ways his work might continue to influence the enterprise of Christian dogmatics. Readers hoping to understand the legacy of this great theologian, and also those eager for fresh insights into the present state and future trajectories of contemporary Protestantism, will find much to offer here.

  • Faith In The Son Of God


    A Study of Faith in Christ in Pauline Theology

    Over the last fifty years, the apostle Paul’s theology has come under immense critical examination. One important issue prompted by recent scholarship is the correct translation of the Greek phrase pistis Christou as faith in Jesus Christ (Galatians 2:16). Many English-speaking scholars now interpret this Greek phrase as the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. This new translation is bound up with the theological argument that we are not justified by our own faith but by the faithfulness of Christ.

    In his latest book, professor Kevin McFadden argues that faith in Christ is a proximate cause of salvation that accords with grace. Academically rigorous, theologically steeped, and pastorally wise, this treatment is not only a helpful introduction to the pistis Christou debate, but it demonstrates the central role of faith in salvation as the church brings the good news of the gospel to the world.

    Historical and Theological Reflections on the Anglican Church from J. I. Packer

    The Anglican Church has a rich theological heritage filled with a diversity of views and practices. Like a river with a main current and several offshoot streams, Anglicanism has a main body with many distinct, smaller communities. So what constitutes mainstream Anglicanism?

    Influential Anglican theologian J. I. Packer makes the case that authentic Anglicanism is biblical, liturgical, evangelical, pastoral, episcopal (ordaining bishops), national (engaging with the culture), and ecumenical (eager to learn from other Christians). As he surveys the history and tensions within the Anglican Church, Packer casts a vision for the future that is grounded in the Scriptures, fueled by missions, guided by historical creeds and practices, and resolved to enrich its people.

  • Paradox Of Sonship


    What does the epistle to the Hebrews mean when it calls Jesus Son?

    Is Son a title that denotes his eternal existence as one person of the Trinity? Or is it a title Jesus receives upon his installation on heaven’s throne after his resurrection and ascension? In this Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture (SCDS) volume, which promotes fresh understandings of Christian belief through creative, faithful readings of the canonical text, pastor and New Testament scholar R. B. Jamieson probes the complexity of the Christology presented in the epistle to the Hebrews. Exploring the paradox of this key term, Jamieson argues that, according to Hebrews, Son names both who Jesus is eternally and what he becomes at the climax of his incarnate, saving mission. Jesus is, in short, the eternal Son who became the messianic Son for us and for our salvation. This volume thereby offers a case study showing how the church’s core convictions about Christ lead us not away from the text, but deeper into it.

  • Desire Darkness And Hope


    For some decades, the work of Carmelite theologian Constance FitzGerald, OCD, has been a well-known secret, not only among students and practitioners of Carmelite spirituality, but also among spiritual directors, spiritual writers, retreatants, vowed religious women and men, and Christian theologians.

    This collection sets out to introduce the work of Sister Constance to a wider and more diverse audience-women and men who seek to strengthen themselves on the spiritual journey, who yearn to deepen personal or scholarly theological and religious reflection, and who want to make sense of the times in which we live. To this end, this volume curates seven of Sister Constance’s articles with probing and responsive essays written by ten theologians.

    Contributors include:
    *Susie Paulik Babka
    *Colette Ackerman, OCD
    *Roberto S. Goizueta
    *Margaret R. Pfeil
    *Alex Milkulich
    *Andrew Prevot

  • Voices From The Ruins


    Where was God in the sixth-century destruction of Jerusalem?

    The Hebrew Bible compositions written during and around the sixth century BCE provide an illuminating glimpse into how ancient Judeans reconciled the major qualities of God-as Lord, fierce warrior, and compassionate judge-with the suffering they were experiencing at the hands of the Neo-Babylonian empire, which had brutally destroyed Judah and deported its people. Voices from the Ruins examines the biblical texts explicitly and directly contextualized by those catastrophic events-Kings, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Lamentations, and selected Psalms-to trace the rich, diverse, and often-polemicized discourse over theodicy unfolding therein. Dalit Rom-Shiloni shows how the voices from the ruins in these texts variously justified God in the face of the rampant destruction, expressed doubt, and protested God’s action (and inaction).

    Rather than trying to paper over the stark theological differences between the writings of these sixth-century historiographers, prophets, and poets, Rom-Shiloni emphasizes the dynamic of theological pluralism as a genuine characteristic of the Hebrew Bible. Through these avenues, and with her careful, discerning textual analysis, she provides readers with insight into how the sufferers of an ancient national catastrophe wrestled with the difficult question that has accompanied tragedies throughout history: Where was God?

  • Spirituality Of The Cross Third Edition


    I’m spiritual but not religious Have you heard that phrase before? Have you said it? In the 32 years since The Spirituality of the Cross was released, the religious landscape of Christianity has changed greatly. A challenge for today (for both Christians and non-Christians alike) is to cultivate a meaningful life in a seemingly meaningless world. Our natural religious impulse is to earn salvation based on what we do and what we deserve according to our own moral compasses we create. Lutheran Christianity is different. The theology of the cross can provide understanding that relates to the world we live in today. Presenting a true understanding of justification by faith, the means of grace, vocation, theology of the cross, the two kingdoms, worship, and the church, Spirituality of the Cross is an excellent explanation of Lutheran spirituality. This third edition is updated to reflect our current times and features a brand-new chapter addressing Christology and how Lutherans highlight the cross during their study of the Divine Being.

  • 5 Views On The Exodus


    Five Views on the Exodus looks at competing views on the historicity, chronology, and theological implications of the exodus. The biblical account of the Israelite exodus from Egypt is one of the most enduring narratives ever told and is a foundational event for several world religions. It resonates across cultures with its timeless themes of redemption and deliverance. It is also the only explanation the Bible gives for Israel’s origin.

    Despite its unique legacy, many scholars regard the exodus as fictitious or a cultural memory that may not be a historical event. Even among those who believe the exodus happened, there is no consensus regarding its date. Five Views on the Exodus brings together experts in the fields of biblical studies, Egyptology, and archaeology to discuss and debate the most vexing questions about the exodus. Each offers their own view and offer constructive responses to other leading views on the exodus.

    The five views presented here include:
    *Early Date: The Exodus Took Place in the Fifteenth Century BC (Scott Stripling)
    *Late Date: A Historical Exodus in the Thirteenth Century BC (James K. Hoffmeier)
    *A Hyksos Levite Led Exodus in the Time of Ramesses II (Peter Feinman)
    *Alternative Late Date: The Exodus Took Place in the Twelfth Century BC (Gary A. Rendsburg)
    *The Exodus as Cultural Memory: A Transformation of Historical Events (Ronald Hendel)

  • Grace Is Not Faceless


    Grace is Not Faceless traces the trajectories of Ann Loades’ distinctive contribution to Anglican Marian theology–for example, her emphasis on Mary in art, her attention to the iconology of the Rabullah Gospels, and the key she finds to approaching the mother of Jesus in Cornelius Ernst, OP’s turn of phrase, grace is not faceless. The book also adds new material by Ann herself, as well as responses to her Marian work. Introductory material further helps make accessible this important Anglican theologian’s Marian theology for the wide audience it deserves.

  • Church : An Introduction


    A Concise Systematic Theology of the Church The word church evokes different thoughts from different people-some think of a group of people who meet together on Sunday mornings; some think of a building; and others think of a bigger, global movement. In this installment of the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Gregg Allison offers an overview of specific doctrines and practices of different churches and denominations as each finds its unique expression through its identity, leadership, government, sacraments, ministries, and future. For each of these topics, Allison lays out the common practice among local church communities (mere ecclesiology) and examines how they diverge from one another in their expression (more ecclesiology). Through this systematic primer, readers will come away knowing not only how various churches differ, but also how they’re ultimately united as the body of Christ and the temple of the Holy Spirit.

  • Holy Scriptures


    The ancient stories, poems, prophecies, and customs of the Bible have been interpreted in so many different ways for so many different contexts, times, and purposes. How can we find a stable meaning for any passage? Is biblical interpretation solely dependent on the beliefs and values of the interpreter?

    Stephen G. Green addresses these questions and offers a responsible approach to studying the Bible. Exploring worldviews, the value-shaping function of words, and the role of the reader, the author skillfully points the way to bridging the gap between the historical context of the Bible and the present-day context of the reader. He introduces readers to the methods and tools needed to successfully understand and embody the transforming message of Scripture.

    The Wesleyan Theology Series aims to discuss Christian doctrines in easy to understand language that states clearly what Christians believe and why. Each volume is written by an author with a particular expertise who also has the ability to simplify and clarify complex issues. This 13-book series is written specifically for the theologically curious layperson, student, or pastor.

  • Path Of Faith


    The closely related biblical themes of covenant and law have often been debated.

    Yet they are among the most important topics in Scripture–theologically and practically. They address how God graciously relates to us and how we ought to live on a daily basis. In this ESBT volume, Brandon Crowe builds on previous books in the series as he considers covenant and law throughout both Old and New Testaments. The Path of Faith lays out key principles such as the obligation of people to obey their Creator, how Jesus’ perfect obedience to God’s law opens the way to eternal life, and what the law means for us today as we continue walking by faith. The Path of Faith reveals the unity of the biblical witness and the consistent call for God’s people to show him covenant loyalty, all while recognizing the unique saving work of Christ on our behalf. Essential Studies in Biblical Theology (ESBT), edited by Benjamin L. Gladd, explore the central or essential themes of the Bible’s grand storyline. Taking cues from Genesis 1-3, authors explore the presence of these themes throughout the entire sweep of redemption history. Written for students, church leaders, and laypeople, the ESBT offers an introduction to biblical theology.

  • Postmortem Opportunity : A Biblical And Theological Assessment Of Salvation


    One of Jesus’ most basic commands to his disciples was to tell the world about the good news of his life, death, and resurrection.

    From the earliest days of the church, Christians have embraced this calling. But for those Christians who emphasize the need for an active response to the gospel in order to be saved, this raises some difficult questions: What about those who did not hear the gospel before death? Or what about those who heard an incorrect or incomplete version of the gospel? Or what about those who were too young or who were otherwise unable to respond? In light of these challenging questions, theologian James Beilby offers a careful consideration of the possibility for salvation after death. After examining the biblical evidence and assessing the theological implications, he argues that there is indeed hope for faith–even beyond death.

  • Introduction To Ecclesiology (Revised)


    What is the church? Why are there so many different expressions of church throughout time and space, and what ties them all together?

    Ecclesiology–the doctrine of the church–has risen to the center of theological interest in recent decades. In this text, theologian Veli-Matti Karkkainen provides a wide-ranging survey of the rich field of ecclesiology in the midst of rapid developments and new horizons. Drawing on Karkkainen’s international experience and comprehensive research on the church, this revised and expanded edition is thoroughly updated to incorporate recent literature and trends. This unique primer not only orients readers to biblical, historical, and contemporary ecclesiologies but also highlights contextual and global perspectives and includes an entirely new section on interfaith comparative theology. An Introduction to Ecclesiology surveys.

    *major theological traditions, including Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Reformed, and Pentecostal

    *ecclesiological insights from Latin American, Africa, and Asia

    *distinct perspectives from women, African Americans, and recent trends in the United States

    *key elements of the church such as mission, governance, worship, and sacraments

    *interreligious comparison with Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, and Buddhist communities

    As the church today encounters challenges and opportunities related to rapid growth in the Majority World, new congregational forms, ecumenical movements, interfaith relations, and more, Christians need a robust ecclesiology that makes room for both unity and diversity. In An Introduction to Ecclesiology students, pastors, and laypeople will find an essential resource for understanding how the church can live out its calling as Christ’s community on earth.

  • Beyond Profession : The Next Future Of Theological Education


    What should theological education become?

    Theological education has long been successful in the United States because of its ability to engage with contemporary cultural realities. Likewise, despite the existential threats facing it today, theological education can continue to thrive if it is reinvented to fit with the needs of current times.

    Daniel Aleshire, the longtime executive director of the Association of Theological Schools, offers a brief account of how theological education has transformed in the past and how it might change going forward. He begins by reflecting on his own extensive experience with theological education and reviewing its history, dating back to colonial times. He then describes what he believes should become the next dominant model of the field-what he calls formational theological education-and explores educational practices that this model would require.

    The future of theological education described here by Aleshire would make seminaries more than places of professional preparation and would instead foster the development of a deep, abiding, resilient, generative identity as Christian human beings within emerging Christian leaders. But it is a vision that, while not a linear continuation of the past, retains the essence of what theological education has always been about.

  • Same God Who Works All Things


    Classical trinitarianism holds that every action of Trinity in the world is inseparable. That is, the divine persons are equally active in every operation. But then, in what way did the Father create the world through Christ? How can only the Son be incarnate, die, and be resurrected? Why does Christ have to ascend before the Spirit may come? These and many other questions pose serious objections to the doctrine of inseparable operations.

    In the first book-length treatment of this doctrine, Adonis Vidu takes up these questions and offers a conceptual and dogmatic analysis of this essential axiom, engaging with recent and historical objections. Taking aim at a common soft interpretation of the inseparability rule, according to which the divine persons merely cooperate and work in concert with one another, Vidu argues for the retrieval of hard inseparability, which emphasizes the unity of divine action, primarily drawing from the patristic and medieval traditions.

    Having probed the biblical foundations of the rule and recounted the story of its emergence in nascent trinitarianism and its demise in modern theology, Vidu builds a constructive case for its retrieval. The rule is then tested precisely on the battlegrounds that were thought to have witnessed its defeat: the doctrines of creation, incarnation, atonement, ascension, and the indwelling of the Spirit. What emerges is a constructive account of theology where the recovery of this dogmatic rule shines fresh light on ancient doctrines.

  • Historical Theology For The Church


    Historical theology is the study of the development of Christian doctrine and tradition from the Bible, by the church, and for the church. Church, in this context, refers both to the global body of believers, and local Christian assemblies. Historical theology serves the church by keeping faithful record of the development of Christian doctrines from the past, and provides important historical context for work in the areas of systematic, biblical, and applied theology.

    In Historical Theology for the Church, editors Jason Duesing, Nathan Finn and Thomas White survey key doctrinal developments from four periods of church history: the Patristic (AD 100-500), Medieval (AD 500-1500), Reformation (AD 1500-1700), and Modern (AD 1700-2000) eras. Trusted experts contribute chapters outlining the main theological developments from each era, and each chapter concludes with a unique For the Church application section, clarifying the connection between the historical doctrine in question and the Christian church of the present age.

  • What The Bible Says About Birth Control Infertility Reproductive Technology


    New from Bestselling Author Wayne Grudem

    The topic of reproductive issues is a sensitive one that every married couple must face. Advances in reproductive technology offer couples more options than ever before to have children-fertility treatment methods; embryo adoption; and prefertilization genetic screening. With all of these solutions available, plus the blessing of adoption, it can be difficult for Christian couples to determine which to consider when the Bible doesn’t give explicit answers. Theologian Wayne Grudem applies biblical truth and ethical reasoning to these problems in order to help Christians navigate issues surrounding birth control, infertility, reproductive technology, and adoption as they seek to live out God’s word in an ever-changing society.

  • Person Of Christ


    An Introduction to Christology

    People are just as interested in discovering who Jesus is today as they were in the first century. Some view Jesus as a great prophet or a wise philosopher; for others, he is an important religious leader or even a revolutionary. In this addition to the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Stephen Wellum examines the divinity and humanity of Christ, focusing on who Jesus is from Scripture and historical theology. He also expounds on why Jesus is utterly unique and how Christians should think about the incarnation-the truth that God the Son took on flesh and became a man. As readers spend time thinking through the glory and majesty of Jesus, they will delight to know and proclaim Christ alone.

  • In Gods Image


    From the 2019/2020 Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh

    In God’s Image describes how centering our culture on the human and divine spirit can revitalize four universally acknowledged characteristics of a thriving human existence: justice, freedom, truth, and peace. Inspired not only by religious sources, but also by scientists, philosophers, economists, and legal and political theorists, Michael Welker develops the idea of a multimodal spirit that generates the possibility of living and acting in the image of God.

    Welker’s new approach to natural theology explains why the human and the divine spirit cannot adequately be grasped in simple bipolar relations and why the human spirit should not be reduced to the rational mind. Addressing the question What is the calling of human beings? in the context of late modern pluralistic societies, he aims at explaining to believers and non-believers alike what it means to be persons created in the image of God, moved by a spirit of justice, freedom, truth, and peace.
