Cross Theology

The Classical Theologia Crucis and Karl Barth's Modern Theology of the Cross

Author: Rosalene Bradbury

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1630876178

What is the theologia crucis--the theology of the cross--and what are its radical claims? Which theologians stood within this subversive tradition, and is Karl Barth amongst them? In this volume New Zealand theologian Rosalene Bradbury throws light on these--surprisingly contentious--questions. She argues convincingly that tethered to the tradition that gave rise to it, the term theologia crucis references a theological system centered around notions of false and true glory, and an ancient conviction that from the cross of Jesus Christ comes a revelatory and a saving Word. The apostle Paul, Athanasius, a school of medieval mystics, and the Reformer Martin Luther, are all shown to be significant classical representatives of these ideas. Bradbury then argues that seminal twentieth-century theologian Karl Barth exhibits many of the classical crucicentric system's defining characteristics, so that he himself might fairly be deemed a modern theologian of the cross. Until now Barth's pivotal role in this long, thin, crucicentric tradition has been unsung. This book thus sheds important new light on Barth's theology.

Living the Justice of the Triune God

Author: David N. Power,Michael Downey

Publisher: Liturgical Press

ISBN: 0814680461

Category: Religion

Page: 160

View: 5060

This groundbreaking book is distinctive for the explicit attention it gives to the communal, intersubjective, cultural, and linguistic embodiment of the workings of God in the world. It emphasizes not simply acting justly but living with, in, and from the justice of the triune God by which we are justified. Finally, it offers an important sacramental and liturgical grounding to the Christian understanding of both justice and the triune God. David N. Power and Michael Downey make clear to contemporary believers why a spiritual and sacramental life that is ordered by its trinitarian orientation must include the desire for justice. In short, it is an ethic of social justice that springs from contemplation of the Divine Trinity in the world.

Helmut Gollwitzer was a direct heir of the theological legacy of the great Protestant theologian Karl Barth. More than any of Barth‘s other interpreters, Gollwitzer embraced and extended the sociopolitical impulses and implications within Barth‘s theology. In this, Gollwitzer embodies a salient and necessary alternative in the American context of increasingly intertwined theological and political discourses. This volume, the first book-length study of Gollwitzer available in English, provides a helpful introduction to the life, theology, and political thought of this crucial theologian and public intellectual.

Death Before the Fall

Biblical Literalism and the Problem of Animal Suffering

Author: Ronald E. Osborn

Publisher: InterVarsity Press

ISBN: 083089537X

Category: Religion

Page: 195

View: 1646

2014 ECPA Top Shelf Book Cover Award Did animals have predatory natures before the fall? Did God punish innocent animals with a curse because of human sin? Is it possible for theistic evolution to be compatible with the Bible, even though animal death before the fall would contradict the teaching that death began after the first sin? In this eloquent and provocative "open letter" to evangelicals, Ronald Osborn wrestles with these pointed questions and with the problem of biblical literalism and animal suffering within an evolutionary understanding of the world. Considering the topic of animal suffering and predation as a theodicy dilemma, Osborn offers an open-minded exploration of the subject, specifically coming against the fundamentalist and literalist view of the book of Genesis and the creation account. He challenges one-dimensional reading of Scripture and shines a sobering light on the evangelical dogma responsible for advancing viewpoints long ago dismantled by science. Always acknowledging the traditionalist viewpoint, Osborn demonstrates with a wealth of exegetical and theological insight how orthodox Christianity can embrace evolutionary concepts without contradiction. Osborn forces us to ask hard questions, not only of the Bible and church tradition, but also and especially of ourselves.

Beloved Dust

Tides of the Spirit in the Christian Life

Author: Robert Davis Hughes, III

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA

ISBN: 1441131647

Category: Religion

Page: 432

View: 907

There has been an explosion of interest in classical Christian spirituality over the past 50 years. While a great deal of work has been done on the history of Christian spirituality, there has been no full-scale theological and pastoral treatment of Christian spiritual life since before the Second Vatican Council. Beloved Dust takes a realistic, contemporary view of human being as entirely physical (dust) and shows it immersed in three great tides of the Holy Spirit, the traditional threefold rhythm of conversion, transfiguration, and glory. What is unique about Robert Hughes's approach is the effort to root spiritual theology in the doctrine of the Spirit, an outgrowth of the renewed interest in the Trinity among both Catholics (Karl Rahner) and Protestants (Robert Jenson). Also striking is Hughes's emphasis on "ordinary life". Here as a married Episcopal priest/theologian who brings a distinctly "Protestant" perspective to a traditionally "Catholic" enterprise for so long the preserve of celibate priests. What he achieves is a new presentation of the traditional teaching in the light of contemporary knowledge and practice.

Theology for Liberal Protestants

God the Creator

Author: Douglas F. Ottati

Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing

ISBN: 1467439134

Category: Religion

Page: 377

View: 1607

A two-volume work by Douglas Ottati, Theology for Liberal Protestants presents a comprehensive theology for Christians who are willing to rethink and revise traditional doctrines in face of contemporary challenges. It is Augustinian, claiming that we belong to the God of grace who creates, judges, and renews. It is Protestant, affirming the priority of the Bible and the fallibility of church teaching. It is liberal, recognizing the importance of critical arguments and scientific inquiries, a deeply historical consciousness, and a commitment to social criticism and engagement. This first volume contains sections on method and creation. Ottati's method envisions the world and ourselves in relation to God as Creator, Judge, and Redeemer. The bulk of the book offers an in-depth discussion of God as Creator, the world as creation, and humans as good, capable, and limited creatures.

African Religion, Philosophy, and Christianity in Logos-Christ

Common Ground Revisited

Author: Emmanuel K. Twesigye

Publisher: Peter Lang Pub Incorporated


Category: Foreign Language Study

Page: 394

View: 6200

This book is both a major expansion and revision of Common Ground: Christianity, African Religion, and Philosophy. The original central thesis has remained unchanged. The central arguments in this book respond to the sensitive theological Christian dogma of "extra ecclesiam nulla salus." The book rejects this doctrine as theologically erroneous, uncharitable, and absurd. The author demonstrates the universal reality and sound logic of the efficacious existence of God's universal salvation and God's kingdom, beyond the confines of the traditional Apostolic Christian Church. God's universal Agape in creation is mediated through God's eternal Word (Logos-Christ). The creative and redemptive cosmic work of God in the Logos-Christ constitutes God's universal gratuitous process of creation and recreation or redemption. No human being or society is ever left out of this redemptive, universal free grace of God. This book has been primarily written for scholars, teachers, and advanced college students or serious readers in the fields of Theology, Philosophy, African Studies, African-American Studies, African Traditional Religion, Ecclesiology, Missiology, Comparative Religion, Cultural Anthropology, and Sociology.
