Description : At the heart of this book is the conviction that moderns have lost their ability to think morally and theologically. Moral language such as right, wrong and ought is seen as meaningless. Modern society, and frequently the church, have adopted an emphasis on individual freedom and choice in which all is a matter of personal attitude or opinion. Then God plays little or no role. In this important volume Harry Huebner and David Schroeder analyze our moral predicament and its implications. They build a case for an ethical approach based on Scripture and the centrality of God and Jesus Christ, an approach in which the church plays an integral role.

Description : We are living in a time in which we are seeing a rapid unravelling of institutional structures in Western society and a re-alignment of values. The church is not faring well in this process. This book takes the form of an earthed and practical theology and asks the question ‘what is the church?’ Rather than a purely theoretical, or a purely pragmatic approach, it looks to the radical Reformers of the sixteenth century and finds there an emphasis on the church’s invisible realities and on community both of which have a relevance to the twenty-first century.

Description : A premier New Testament scholar explores how Jesus' trial and execution are portrayed in the New Testament and how that portrayal has affected biblical studies, Christian theology, and Jewish-Christian relations through history. Tomson has written an accessible, responsible analysis of the biblical accounts of Jesus' death, demonstrating how, through compounded misunderstandings, they contributed to anti-Jewish sentiment in the early church and later history. Tomson's question of how Jesus is to be understood in his first-century Judean context is a critical one not only for biblical scholars, but for anyone concerned about human rights and interreligious dialogue today.

Description : Christians have sometimes professed that the church ought to be in the world but not of it, yet the meaning and significance of this conviction has continued to challenge and confound. In the context of persecution, Christians in the ancient world tended to distance themselves from the social and civic mainstream, while in the medieval and early modern periods, the church and secular authorities often worked in close relationship, sharing the role of shaping society. In a post-Christendom era, this latter arrangement has been heavily critiqued and largely dismantled, but there is no consensus in Christian thought as to what the alternative should be. The present collection of essays offers new perspectives on this subject matter, drawing on sometimes widely disparate interlocutors, ancient and modern, biblical and secular. Readers will find these essays challenging and thought-provoking.
