EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Orthodox Christian theology is often presented as the direct inheritor of the doctrine and tradition of the early Church. But continuity with the past is only part of the truth; it would be false to conclude that the eastern section of the Christian Church is in any way static. Orthodoxy, building on its patristic foundations, has blossomed in the modern period. This volume focuses on the way Orthodox theological tradition is understood and lived today. It explores the Orthodox understanding of what theology is: an expression of the Church's life of prayer, both corporate and personal, from which it can never be separated. Besides discussing aspects of doctrine, the book portrays the main figures, themes and developments that have shaped Orthodox thought. There is particular focus on the Russian and Greek traditions, as well as the dynamic but less well-known Antiochian tradition and the Orthodox presence in the West.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Christian theology is not naively the study of the Bible “only” or alone but the interactions and engagement of the Bible with these human traditions. To this end, Michael's work is the study of the Bible in close dialogue with African traditions.Arguing that for Christian theology to remain relevant to a given people, such dialogue or interaction becomes inevitable because, as a human enterprise, it must by its nature engage the human context of its reflection in order to remain relevant. In Africa, Christian theology must engage the worldviews of the African people especially in terms of the beliefs, values and traditional orientations of the African people while remaining faithful to the scriptures.Michael discovers that Christian theology becomes “incompetent” or “ill-equipped” to carry out such a contemporary function within the African context because in the history of its transmission it has been fashioned and shaped to address the needs and aspirations of the Western church and the imposing heritage of the enlightenment period. The African context must “reprocess” or reconstruct “Christian theology” in order to engage African questions which often are ignored by “standard” works on Christian theology, argues Michael.From these highlighted concerns, the book discusses “standard” topics in “Christian theology” in light of African similar or dissimilar forms.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Scientists, philosophers and theologians have wrestled repeatedly with the question of whether knowledge is similar or different in their various understandings of the world and God. Although agreement is still elusive, the epistemology of critical realism, associated with Ian Barbour, John Polkinghorne and Arthur Peacocke, remains widely credible. Relying on the lifetime work of philosopher Ernan McMullin, this book expands our understanding of critical realism beyond a permanent stand-off between the subjective and objective, whether in science or theology. Critical realism illuminates the subject and the objectively known simultaneously. Responding to criticisms made against it, this book defends critical realism in science and theology with a specific role to play in our understanding of God.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In Divine Transcendence and the Culture of Change David H. Hopper explores several significant historical and cultural effects of Reformation theology. In conversation with H. Richard Niebuhr, he examines the theology of Martin Luther, Martin Bucer, John Calvin, and Francis Bacon and shows how these Reformation thinkers' recognition of God's transcendent wisdom in the cross of Christùover and above human wisdom ù ushered in an era of greater liberty and equality, deeper knowledge, and cultural progress. Hopper's historical-theological study not only illuminates the past but also sheds light on the tumultuous present, revealing how a recaptured understanding of God's transcendence can confront the thoughtless tolerance and inward-facing spiritual consumerism of our own time and radically transform both theology and culture today.
