An honest and sensitive blend of biblical teaching and personal testimony which helps people experience the reality of God the Father's love for them in a deep way. There is a growing epidemic of fatherlessness in society today, with more and more people experiencing crippling wounds through their childhood experiences. The Father heart of God longs to heal these wounds and bring joy and freedom in their place. But how do we learn to trust and love a heavenly Father when we have been hurt by our earthly fathers? Tracy Williamson honestly shares the insights and lessons she has learnt on her journey as she has allowed God to free her from deep childhood hurts, into the relevation that she is a beloved daughter of Father God. With a unique mix of practical teaching, personal stories, poems, prophecies and questions for reflection this is a life changing resource for all who carry the wounds of rejection. Tracy helps readers understand God's love for them, and how they can grow in their relationship with him and be a channel of his love to others. Reflection points throughout each chapter allow the reader to take time to pray through and apply lessons learned, gently allowing their hearts to be opened to the Father's deep affection for them.

Current Issues in Theology, Series Number 13 - Reading the Bible Theologically (Hardcover): Darren Sarisky Current Issues in Theology, Series Number 13 - Reading the Bible Theologically (Hardcover)
Darren Sarisky
R2,004 R1,833 Discovery Miles 18 330 Save R171 (9%) Dispatched within 7 - 12 working days

Theological interpretation of the Bible is one of the most significant debates within theology today. Yet what exactly is theological reading? Darren Sarisky proposes that it requires identification of the reader via a theological anthropology; an understanding of the text as a collection of signs; and reading the text with a view toward engaging with what it says of transcendence. Accounts of theological reading do not often give explicit focus to the place of the reader, but this work seeks to redress this neglect. Sarisky examines Augustine's approach to the Bible and how his theological insights into the reader and the text generate an aim for interpretation, which is fulfilled by fitting reading strategies. He also engages with Spinoza, showing that theological exegesis contrasts not with approaches that take history seriously, but with naturalistic approaches to reading.

Biblical Criticism in Early Modern Europe - Erasmus, the Johannine Comma and Trinitarian Debate (Hardcover): Grantley  McDonald Biblical Criticism in Early Modern Europe - Erasmus, the Johannine Comma and Trinitarian Debate (Hardcover)
Grantley McDonald

Medieval western theologians considered the Johannine comma (1 John 5:7-8) the clearest biblical evidence for the Trinity. When Erasmus failed to find the comma in the Greek manuscripts he used for his New Testament edition, he omitted it. Accused of promoting Antitrinitarian heresy, Erasmus included the comma in his third edition (1522) after seeing it in a Greek codex from England, even though he suspected the manuscript's authenticity. The resulting disputes, involving leading theologians, philologists and controversialists such as Luther, Calvin, Sozzini, Milton, Newton, Bentley, Gibbon and Porson, touched not simply on philological questions, but also on matters of doctrine, morality, social order, and toleration. While the spuriousness of the Johannine comma was established by 1900, it has again assumed iconic status in recent attempts to defend biblical inerrancy amongst the Christian Right. A social history of the Johannine comma thus provides significant insights into the recent culture wars.

The Evangelical Universalist - The Biblical Hope That God's Love Will Save Us All (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition):... The Evangelical Universalist - The Biblical Hope That God's Love Will Save Us All (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

Can an orthodox Christian, committed to the historic faith of the Church and the authority of the Bible, be a universalist? Is it possible to believe that salvation is found only by grace, through faith in Christ, and yet to maintain that in the end all people will be saved? Can one believe passionately in mission if one does not think that anyone will be lost forever? Could universalism be consistent with the teachings of the Bible? This book argues that the answer is 'yes' to all of these questions. Weaving together philosophical, theological and biblical considerations, the author shows that being a universalist is consistent with the central teachings of the Bible and of historic Christian theology. This new edition answers critics of the first edition and reflects on the furore caused by Rob Bell's venture into this theological minefield with Love Wins. It is ideal for people who may have read or heard of Love Wins but want to read an in-depth treatment of the subject by an author who has read all the relevant scholarly literature, and engages sensitively with all the exegetical and theological arguments. The new edition also provides discussion starters for leaders using the book for church study groups.

God's Wider Presence - Reconsidering General Revelation (Paperback): Robert K. Johnston God's Wider Presence - Reconsidering General Revelation (Paperback)
Robert K. Johnston
R330 R272 Discovery Miles 2 720 Save R58 (18%) In stock

What are we to make of those occasional yet illuminating experiences of God's presence that occur outside both church and Scripture? We may encounter God's revelatory presence as we experience a beautiful sunset, the birth of a child, or a work of art, music, or literature. While theologians have tended to describe such experiences abstractly as mere traces or echoes, those involved often recognize such moments of transcendence as transformative.
Here senior theologian Robert Johnston explores how Christians should think theologically about God's wider revelatory presence that is mediated outside the church through creation, conscience, and culture. The book offers a robust, constructive biblical theology of general revelation, rooting its insights in the broader Trinitarian work of the Spirit. Drawing in part from the author's theological engagement with film and the arts, the book helps Christians understand personal moments of experiencing God's transcendence and accounts for revelatory experiences of those outside the believing community. It also shows how God's revelatory presence can impact our interaction with nonbelievers and those of other faiths.

Cities of Tomorrow and the City to Come - A Theology of Urban Life (Paperback): Noah J. Toly Cities of Tomorrow and the City to Come - A Theology of Urban Life (Paperback)

R180 R149 Discovery Miles 1 490 Save R31 (17%) Dispatched within 5 - 10 working days

Each day, the world's urban population swells by almost 200,000. With every passing week, more than a million people new to cities face unexpected realities and challenges of urban life. Just like the sheer volume of people in the city, these challenges can be staggering. As with the height and breadth of our metropolises, the wonders of urban life can be breathtaking. Like the city itself, the questions and challenges of urban life are both sprawling and pulsing with vitality. As part of Zondervan's Ordinary Theology series, this volume offers a series of Christian reflections on some of the most basic and universal challenges of 21st century urban life. It takes one important dimension of what it means to be human-that human beings are made to be for God, for others, and for creation-and asks, "What are the implications of who God made us to be for how we ought to live in our cities?" This book is intended for Christians facing the riddle of urban creation care, discerning the shape of community life, struggling with the challenges of wealth and poverty, and wondering at the global influence of cities. It is meant for those whose lives and livelihoods are inextricably bound up in the flourishing of their neighborhood and also for those who live in the shadow of cities. Most of all, it is meant for those grappling with the relationship between the cities of tomorrow and the glorious city to come.

Evangelicalism has left its indelible mark on American history, politics, and culture. It is also true that currents of American populism and politics have shaped the nature and character of evangelicalism. This story of evangelicalism in America is thus riddled with paradox. Despite the fact that evangelicals, perhaps more than any other religious group, have benefited from the First Amendment and the separation of church and state, several prominent evangelical leaders over the past half century have tried to abrogate the establishment clause of the First Amendment. And despite evangelicalism's legacy of concern for the poor, for women, and for minorities, some contemporary evangelicals have repudiated their own heritage of compassion and sacrifice stemming from Jesus' command to love the least of these. In Evangelicalism in America Randall Balmer chronicles the history of evangelicalismaits origins and development as well as its diversity and contradictions. Within this lineage Balmer explores the social varieties and political implications of evangelicalism's inception as well as its present and paradoxical relationship with American culture and politics. Balmer debunks some of the cherished myths surrounding this distinctly American movement while also prophetically speaking about its future contributions to American life.

R209 R144 Discovery Miles 1 440 Save R65 (31%) Dispatched within 7 - 12 working days

Rob Bell's bestseller `Love Wins' tackled subjects church leaders have been afraid to touch. Now he asks the biggest question faced by any Christian: how do we know God? Although 2000 years of Christendom has seen huge changes in our broader understanding of our place in the world, belief remains rooted in archaism and tradition. Rob Bell believes we need to drop our primitive, tribal views of God and instead embrace the God who wants us to reach the potential within us; people who understand their universe of quarks and quantum string dynamics, but who recognise our fundamental need for stories of heroes and sacrifice and profound longing for a guiding force larger than ourselves. `What We Talk About When We Talk About God' will reveal that God is not in need of repair to catch him up with today's world, so much as we need to discover the God who goes before us and beckons us forward. A book full of mystery, controversy, and reverence, `What We Talk About When We Talk About God' promises not to disappoint.

Remember the Creator is a book about the reality of God and how to become aware of that reality. Starting from personal experience, it moves on to look at the evidence for God's existence and then considers what sort of God he might be. The teachings of Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta are examined but seen as incomplete in the light of the truth that the deepest level of reality must include the personal. Further chapters discuss atheism, morality and suffering, and how these are to be understood from the perspective of a Creator and his purpose in creating, before the conclusion is reached that any true revival of spirituality in the West should be linked to Christ. Finally, we reflect on the modern world and ask what humanity needs to do to throw off the strong sense of alienation it currently suffers from.

Richard Shenk
R330 Discovery Miles 3 300 Dispatched within 7 - 12 working days

A theological exploration of Genesis 2 which renews our vision of the purpose of marriage as the central drama within God's salvation plan. Marriage seems increasingly irrelevant to many people today. But is this a true understanding of marriage? Could it be that God may have expectations for marriage which are distinct from our own, and wholly unaffected by our feelings or debates? If God is the author and definer of marriage, then we must look to the Author to discern its meaning rather than ourselves. The Genesis of Marriage sets out a biblical theology of marriage, grounded in the Marriage Text of Genesis 2:18-25, and investigates how it fits in its own context of Genesis 1 - 3 and the whole of Scripture. Examining the Marriage Text exegetically and theologically, Shenk shows this as the climax and conclusion of the two creation accounts, and explores what this reveals about the nature and character of God. The doctrinal implications of this are then explored, answering such practical questions such as, 'What are the ethics of marriage?' and 'How do we approach the real-world concerns of separation, divorce, and remarriage?'. Shenk's exploration helps dispel our modern disillusionment with marriage, or at least our ideas and beliefs about marriage which may be at odds with God's, to reveal deep truth about the nature and character of God.

Andrew Young - Priest, Poet and Naturalist: A Reassessment (Paperback): Richard Ormrod Andrew Young - Priest, Poet and Naturalist: A Reassessment (Paperback)
Richard Ormrod
R589 Discovery Miles 5 890 Dispatched within 7 - 11 working days

It is the central contention of this book that Andrew John Young (1885-1971) is still seriously under-valued amongst twentieth-century poets, principally because he has been over-anthologised - and by implication, dismissed - as yet another 'nature' poet of the Georgian ilk. A re-assessment is long overdue. Omrod argues, by way of both biography and critical analysis, that Young is a great poet, a modern metaphysical, a poet's poet, whose idiolect is distinctive and whose 'individual talent' both links to yet subtly changes literary 'tradition.'

Miracles are not confined to the stories of Scripture; these signs of God's presence and power in creation are experienced throughout our daily existence. Yet cultural challenges and modernity's skepticism have marginalized belief in them as unreasonable and irrational, says Luke Timothy Johnson. In this excellent resource for church professionals, Johnson reclaims Christian belief in miracles as integral to recovering a proper and strong sense of creation, recognizing the validity of personal experience and narrative and asserting the truth-telling quality of myth. His analysis includes: a description of the competing symbolic worldviews that have framed the discussion on miracles, including secular debates and theological imagination; interpretation of miracles consonant with the biblical construction of reality in the Old and New Testaments; suggestions for four areas in the church's life&#8212teaching, preaching, prayer, and pastoral care&#8212that can work together to shape a symbolic world, within which believers can expect, perceive, and celebrate the miracles in everyday life.

What must you do to be right with God? The Reformers broke with the Roman Catholic Church when they insisted people are justified by faith alone. But today many Protestants fail to grasp that keystone of faith. In Faith Alone, a Gold Medallion finalist, R. C. Sproul explains why Protestantism and Roman Catholicism split over justification in the first place and why that division remains an uncrossed chasm. Protestants must understand the biblical, Reformation view of the doctrine of justification to grasp the power of the gospel and proclaim it far and wide today. This repacked edition of a classic offers a new generation of Christians a clear explanation of the vital doctrine of salvation.
