Description : Christology and Pneumatology have long been major preoccupations for theologians, and rightly so, but the work of God the Father has been surprisingly neglected. Through a biblical and exegetical study of the Father's person and work (Paterology), this book argues that, among the persons of the Trinity, the Father is the initiator of all divine activity. Furthermore, it is in the context of a loving eternal relationship with the Son and Spirit that the Father has planned and purposed all things, creating through the Son and by the Spirit, promising and accomplishing redemption through the sending of the Son and the Spirit, and perfecting salvation by bringing about a new heavens and new earth through his Son and Spirit. The only proper response is a Trinitarian-shaped life of worship that worships our Triune God.

Description : The third chapter of the Holy Bible's book of Ecclesiastes begins "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven . . ." (KJV). This book is but a mere sample of observations made during various times the author experienced or an effort to capture a "state of being" or mood and express it through poetry as a christian. Being one who has made many mistakes (but acknowledging the Lord in all ways so that God can direct her path), "From Beneath The Surface" begins with an attempt to state the author's understanding of what Christianity is to her. One of the first few poems admits "I Don't Know" with regard to where to begin as a christian witness while continuing to seek the Lord's purpose for her life. "First View" gives a brief glimpse of the author's humble beginnings. All poems in between the covers (from "Fear" to "Givin' Up") attempts to convey thoughts experienced while "passing through" situations while outside of God's will ("He Felt That Way One Day", "Romantic Fool Unleashed", etc.) having gotten off track ("Reality Attack") as well as inside of God's will. Praying to God with "Lord These People Need Help"; understanding comes through "Love Anyway"; then a few philosophical words shared through such poems as "Room For All" and "Grains of Sand". The author ends with the poem "Keep the Faith Alive!" which confirms that no matter what lies ahead, with faith in God, the Lord will see you through. Here's written proof that even a person with a "messed-up" life can witness for the Lord when called to do so. Having experienced hurt, abuse, anguish, pain, heartache, deception, discrimination, rejection, etc. (just like everyone else has), after prayerfully reading the Holy Bible, the author has grown to understand that love (in a godly manner with patience, kindness, endurance, steadfastness, etc.) is what the christian is supposed to do as Christ's representative. Regardless of the situation or circumstance, one's belief, faith and love of God should shine through because "With God, all things are possible". Please note that although this compilation was first copyrighted in May 1990, all works were written prior to 1988 and additional material has been added reflective through current situation. With a goal of putting something positive back into her community without stepping on or using others to do so, Karen utilizes God-given talent and ability to interpret her life's situation. (One could say these works touch on existentialism a philosophy centered upon the analysis of one's existence in the world with regard to the author's relationship with God at different times in her life.) Hopefully, this book will be a good representation. "From Beneath The Surface" is a book written from Karen's heart, with her hand and in love based on her life's experiences. As you share, please keep this in mind nothing contained herein is intended to offend any person, place or thing. Hopefully, inspiration to learn and grow in God's Word, the Holy Bible, will be ignited, lighting the pathway for Jesus' love to come into your heart, guiding you through your life's journey. Read your Holy Bible today, then go out and live the Word! God bless you! In christian love and devotion, Karen Maddox DBA Faith Unlimited Enterprises P.O. Box 3963 Louisville, KY 40201-3963

Description : First of all I like to thank god for all he has done in me and my wife’s life, everything from keeping us when we were in sin, until now by giving us peace and joy in our hearts. I wish I could get the men to see that no matter how we may look at life it is going to all come down to the choices that we make in life as a man. Men I feel that it is time for us to start reaching out to the men of today because a lot of our young men and adult males are really confused about their responsibilities as men and god has placed it on my heart to show men that being a man and being a saved man is the desire that God has for our lives. But my first agenda is to ensure you that whatever your are going through at this point in your life; is to let you know that someone has already gone through it and is willing to help you get through your situation so you can have joy and peace in your life. But as men we don't like to talk about what we are going through in our life because we are taught from a young age that a man is not suppose to cry, show emotion or talk about what’s going on in their minds, because that is a sign of weakness. But I want my brothers to understand that giving your life to Christ and letting him know that you need his help is not a sign weakness, but the first sign of being the man that God wants you to be. So I like for all the men of the world especially my unsaved brother to take time out of their busy schedules to read this book and know in my heart that once you read this book (Understanding and Accepting Our Responsibilities as Men) your life will never be the same again. Because I know that if I can touch the men of today and show them that they can live there life in peace, joy and love and that it is your time to receive your blessings by taking on your responsibilities as a man by giving your life to Christ first, then I know that the future for our younger generation will be promising. Men we are in a time now when our sons, daughters, and wife need us to be the men that god intended for us to be, so it’s time for us to step up and take our rightful place as men in our families’ life most of all in gods kingdom. Brothers you may say why is he so concern about the men, the reason is because one I am a man and the other reason is the lord put someone in my life to show me the way and through their prayers and his grace and mercy he saved me so I can understand and explain to the men of the world that we need to lead and not just follow. The 2nd reason is I am so tired of losing so many of our young men because we are not teaching them the true meaning of being a man. (So men it’s time to stand up and take your rightful place at the head of your families be it single or married and help me reach other unsaved brothers.).

Description : THE objective of WORKING FOR GOD is first of all to remind all Christian workers of the greatness and the glory of the work in which God gives a share. It is nothing less than that work of bringing men back to their God, at which God finds His highest glory and blessedness. As we see that it is God’s own work we have to work out, that He works it through us, that in our doing it His glory rests on us and we glorify Him, we shall count it our joy to give ourselves to live only and wholly for it. WORKING FOR GOD at the same time aims to help those who are laboring in vain, to find out what may be the cause of such struggles. God’s work must be done in God’s way and in God’s power. It is spiritual work, to be done by spiritual men and women, in the power of the Holy Spirit. The more precise our insight into God's Word, and the more complete our submission to God’s laws of work, the surer and the richer will be our joy and our reward in it. Along with this, WORKING FOR GOD can be a great help for those who have struggled in finding their part in the service of their Lord. Murray and Andrews seek to help ones understand that the chief characteristic of the Divine life in God and Christ is love and its work of blessing men. The Divine life in us can show itself in no other way. They have sought to show that it is God’s will that every believer without exception, whatever be his position in life, gives himself wholly to live and work for God. WORKING FOR GOD will also focus on teaching the imperative duty, the urgent need, the Divine blessedness of a life given to God’s service, and to waken within the consciousness of the power that works in them, even the Spirit and power of Christ Himself.

Description : Papers presented at the Fifteenth International Conference on Patristic Studies held in Oxford 2007 (see also Studia Patristica 45, 46, 47, 48 and 49). The successive sets of Studia Patristica contain papers delivered at the International Conferences on Patristic Studies, which meet for a week once every four years in Oxford; they are held under the aegis of the Theology Faculty of the University. Members of these conferences come from all over the world and most offer papers. These range over the whole field, both East and West, from the second century to a section on the Nachleben of the Fathers. The majority are short papers dealing with some small and manageable point; they raise and sometimes resolve questions about the authenticity of documents, dates of events, and such like, and some unveil new texts. The smaller number of longer papers put such matters into context and indicate wider trends. The whole reflects the state of Patristic scholarship and demonstrates the vigour and popularity of the subject.

Description : In this collection of essays, Tom Greggs explores the nature of the church in a world of many religions. Greggs' writings on the Church and on other religions emphasize the importance of attentiveness to Christ and the Holy Spirit, and both are simultaneously generous and particularist. The first part of the book addresses the Church as it is brought into being by the Spirit in glorifying God, celebrates the sacraments, respects the authority of the creeds, is generously Catholic, and critiques its own religion. The second part looks at the church in a pluralist context as it engages in inter-faith dialogue, expresses both particularism and universalism, speaks of Christ with many names, and reads scripture and understands the many covenants found there. Greggs offers a programmatic conclusion, setting an agenda for theologies of the church and of other religions and their simultaneous relationality.

Description : This comprehensive, widely used text by Michael Gorman presents a theologically focused, historically grounded interpretation of the apostle Paul and raises significant questions for engaging Paul today. After providing substantial background information on Paul's world, career, letters, gospel, spirituality, and theology, Gorman covers in full detail each of the thirteen Pauline epistles. Enhancing the text are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter as well as numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. The new introduction in this second edition helpfully situates the book within current approaches to Paul. Gorman also brings the conversation up-to-date with major recent developments in Pauline studies and devotes greater attention to themes of participation, transformation, resurrection, justice, and peace. --Publisher's description.

Description : Postcolonial Public Theology is a tour de force--theological reflection transformed by encounter with the most compelling intellectual discourses of our time. It offers prophetic challenge to the hegemony of economic globalization. Evolutionary science's encounter with life's limit questions requires an ethically responsible practice of scientific rationality, measured by sufficient, sustainable livelihood for all. Interreligious engagement compels us to take seriously the realities of cultural hybridity and social location in reimagining a polycentric Christianity. Postcolonial Public Theology makes the case for public theology to turn toward postcolonial imagination, demonstrating a fresh rethinking of public and global issues that continue to emerge in the aftermath of colonialism. This book provides students and scholars in these various fields an interesting framework from which to continue to dialogue about the relevance of this literature and, in particular, the continuing importance of Christian theology in the public arena.

Description : This issue of The Ministry contains the last nine messages given during the 2004 spring term of the Full-time Training in Anaheim, California. The general subject of this series of messages is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In a simple, basic way the God of Abraham is the God of justification, the God of Isaac is the God of grace, and the God of Jacob is the God of transformation through divine discipline. Messages 2 through 7 of the October 2005 issue of The Ministry presented the God of Abraham. Messages 8 and 9 of that issue presented the God of Isaac. In this issue Message 10 concludes the fellowship concerning the God of Isaac. Isaac signifies our living a life of enjoying God; hence, we live a grace-enjoying life for God's good pleasure. Messages 11 through 17 present the God of Jacob. The God of Jacob, who is the God of transformation, issues in the God of Israel, who is the God of the transformed Jacob. Message 18 presents the Israel of God. All the experiences of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, represented by the lives and experiences of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, are to produce this corporate person--the Israel of God. We do not have the experiences of the God of Abraham merely to be spiritual persons, we do not enter into the experiences represented by Isaac simply to be individuals enjoying God's grace in a personal way, and we do not go through all the experiences represented by Jacob's long life just to end up as spiritual individuals who have some spiritual stature. God desires a corporate person; He wants a people to express Him and represent Him. Last of all, we include a report concerning the Lord's move in the United Kingdom.

Description : This critical volume focuses on the issue of continuity and discontinuity of the Christian concept of theosis, or deification, in the intellectual history of ideas. It addresses the origin, development, and function of theosis from its antecedents in ancient Greek philosophy to its nuanced use in contemporary theological thought. Often seen as a heresy in the Protestant West, the revival of interest in deification in both lay and scholastic circles heralds a return to foundational understandings of salvation in the Christian church before the divisions of East and West, Catholic and Protestant.

Description : In The Last Things Donald G. Bloesch takes up difficult and sometimes controversial themes such as the coming of the kingdom of God, the return of Jesus Christ, the life hereafter, the millennial hope, the final judgment, hell, heaven, purgatory and paradise. Wrestling with biblical texts that often take metaphorical form, Bloesch avoids rationalistic reductionism as well as timid agnosticism. While he acknowledges mystery and even paradox, Bloesch finds biblical revelation much more than sufficient to illuminate the central truths of a Christian hope articulated throughout the history of the church. The Last Things is not just a review of past Christian eschatology but a fresh articulation of the grace and glory of God yet to be consummated. The triumph of the grace of Jesus Christ and the dawning of hope beckon us to reach out in the power of the Spirit to receive that blessed future and the promise to renew the life of the church universal today.

Description : The present volume is the fifth in a five-volume study of church doctrine. The multivolume set covers the major parts of church doctrine: Canon, God, Creation, Reconciliation, and Redemption. The first volume begins with an introduction to the entire project on why doctrine matters, which stresses the ecumenical, global, and above all biblical horizons of church doctrine as a primary expression of Christian witness. The purpose of this fifth volume is to explicate the full reality of God’s redeeming love for the whole creation. In the doctrine of redemption, the church looks forward in hope. Through the gift of the Spirit at Pentecost the church is gathered out of all nations and peoples of the earth, and looks forward to the coming day of final redemption for the whole cosmos. Yet even now, the promise of God’s coming is active in the world, rendering the church into a new humanity, establishing a new society, calling every individual to a new life of joy in discipleship. Church doctrine is not a luxury, but a necessity for the living community of faith, by which its witness in word and deed is tested against the one true measure of Christ the risen Lord.

Description : The most popular source of theological hope for American Christians is that of Jurgen Moltmann. Preachers, teachers, and lay people reflect Moltmann's influence, with their hope in a this-worldly eschatology and a suffering God. However, an exclusive reliance on that hope deprives the church of crucial resources in the face of global economic, environmental, and military crises. This book explores Moltmannian hope and considers its costs before looking elsewhere for additional contributions, from Thomas Aquinas's theological virtue of hope to nihilism and beyond, in order to encourage the church to sustain and practice hope in Jesus Christ, our only hope.
