Product Description & Reviews

Observing a strange disappearance of doctrine within the church, Kevin Vanhoozer argues that there is no more urgent task for Christians today than to engage in living truthfully with others before God. He details how doctrine serves the church--the theater of the gospel--by directing individuals and congregations to participate in the drama of what God is doing to renew all things in Jesus Christ. Taking his cue from George Lindbeck and others who locate the criteria of Christian identity in Spirit-led church practices, Vanhoozer relocates the norm for Christian doctrine in the canonical practices, which, he argues, both provoke and preserve the integrity of the church's witness as prophetic and apostolic.

Words of Life: Scripture as the Living and Active Word of God
By IVP Academic
ean: 9780830827442, isbn: 0830827447,
Throughout Christian history, the overwhelmingly predominant view of the Bible has been that it is itself the living and active word of God. In this book Timothy Ward explains and defends what we are really saying when we trust and proclaim, as we must, that the Bible is God's word. In particular he describes the nature of the relationship between the living God and Scripture. He examines why, in order to worship God faithfully, we need to pay close attention to the Bible; why, in order to be

Speaking of God: Theology, Language and Truth (Eerdmans Ekklesia Series)
By Brand: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.
ean: 9780802845726, isbn: 080284572X,
 D. Stephen Long here addresses a key question in current theological debate: the conditions of the possibility of ''God-talk,'' along with attending questions about natural theology, fideism, and theological truth-claims. He engages not only the most significant contemporary theologians and philosophers on this score (Denys Turner, Bruce Marshall, John Milbank, Charles Taylor, Fergus Kerr) but also the legacy of twentieth-century theology (Barth, von Balthasar) and the analytic philosophical

The Language Of Heaven: Unconquerable Power For Your Life
By CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
ean: 9781438216782, isbn: 9781438216782,
Jesus said, ''Behold I give you power.'' Then why do Christians so often struggle to make their life work? This Christian ''self-help'' book puts power back into the hands of Christ's followers, where God intended it to reside all along. That which sets it apart from the productions of today's prosperity gurus is the way it presents the Giver of life's bounties, personifying God as a real Being with needs of His own, especially for fellowship with His intelligent creation. Rather than a

Human Language and Knowledge in the Light of Chalcedon (American University Studies)
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
sku: 1005-WS0801-A01015-0820427284, ean: 9780820427287, isbn: 9780820427287,
There have been many responses to the problem of how human language and knowledge function in relation to God. Human Language and Knowledge in the Light of Chalcedon breaks new ground by suggesting that the relation between humanity and divinity found in the Chalcedonian Definition of the Faith (A.D. 451) can make one of Christian theology's basic tasks look rather different. In the light of a dynamic reading of Chalcedonian christology, the author discusses analogy, metaphor, and symbol, as

A Privileged Moment: «Dialogue» in the Language of the Second Vatican Council 1962-1965: Dialogue in the Language of the Second Vatican Council ... / Publications Universitaires Européennes)
By Peter Lang AG, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
ean: 9783039109845, isbn: 9783039109845,
This book is the first major study to analyse the word ‘dialogue’ in the documents of the Second Vatican Council. ‘Dialogue’ actually translates two different Latin words, colloquium and dialogus, which do not mean the same thing. After a clear explanation of the important distinction between the dialectic of Thomism, where dialogue leads to an end-point, and the modern meaning of dialogue as an open-ended process between equal partners, the book argues that these dissimilar concepts

The Concepts of «Spirit» and «Demon»: A Study in the Use of different Languages describing the same Phenomena (Studien zur interkulturellen Geschichte ... in the Intercultural History of Christianity)
By Peter Lang International Academic Publishers
ean: 9783261017871, isbn: 3261017872,
The «Concepts of Spirit and Demon» looks first of all into descriptions of these phenomena in the «languages» of different Biblical theologies, of Protestant and Catholic Twentieth Century Charismatics, of C.G. Jung and William Sargant and finally of John Taylor. The attempt is made to see the uses and limitations of each of these languages and the conclusions drawn are seen to have practical implications for evangelism, education and pastoralia..

Inexpressible: Hesed and the Mystery of God's Lovingkindness
By IVP Books
ean: 9780830845491, isbn: 0830845496,
God's identity is beyond what we could ever fully express in human words. But Scripture uses one particular word to describe the distinctiveness of God's character: the Hebrew word hesed. Hesed is a concept so rich in meaning that it doesn't translate well into any single English word or phrase. Michael Card unpacks the many dimensions of hesed, often expressed as lovingkindness, covenant faithfulness, or steadfast love. He explores how hesed is used in the Old Testament to reveal God's
