432583: A Cross-Shattered Church: Reclaiming the Theological Heart of PreachingA Cross-Shattered Church: Reclaiming the Theological Heart of Preaching
By Stanley Hauerwas
*** $2.99 ***
 
 
In this work, eminent theologian Stanley Hauerwas shows how the sermon is the best context for doing good theology. He writes, “I am convinced that the recovery of the sermon as the context for theological reflection is crucial if Christians are to negotiate the world in which we find ourselves.” The book includes seventeen sermons preached by Hauerwas, which he considers his best theological work and hopes exemplify the work of theology. The sermons are divided into four sections: seeing, saying, living, and events. Titles range from Believing Is Seeing and Was It Fitting for Jesus to Die on a Cross? to Only Fear Can Drive Out Fear and To Be Made Human.

Each sermon includes where and when it was preached and references relevant Scripture passages.
 
 

039737: Who"s Afraid of Relativism?: Community, Contingency, and CreaturehoodWho’s Afraid of Relativism?: Community, Contingency, and Creaturehood
By James K.A. Smith
*** $3.99 ***
 
 

Following his successful Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism? leading Christian philosopher James K. A. Smith introduces the philosophical sources behind postliberal theology. Offering a provocative analysis of relativism, Smith provides an introduction to the key voices of pragmatism: Ludwig Wittgenstein, Richard Rorty, and Robert Brandom.

Many Christians view relativism as the antithesis of absolute truth and take it to be the antithesis of the gospel. Smith argues that this reaction is a symptom of a deeper theological problem: an inability to honor the contingency and dependence of our creaturehood. Appreciating our created finitude as the condition under which we know (and were made to know) should compel us to appreciate the contingency of our knowledge without sliding into arbitrariness. Saying “It depends” is not the equivalent of saying “It’s not true” or “I don’t know.” It is simply to recognize the conditions of our knowledge as finite, created, social beings. Pragmatism, says Smith, helps us recover a fundamental Christian appreciation of the contingency of creaturehood.

This addition to an acclaimed series engages key thinkers in modern philosophy with a view to ministry and addresses the challenge of relativism in a creative, original way.

The Church and Postmodern Culture series features high-profile theorists in continental philosophy and contemporary theology writing for a broad, nonspecialist audience interested in the impact of postmodern theory on the faith and practice of the church.

433351: A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C.S. LewisA Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C.S. Lewis
By Devin Brown
*** $3.99 ***
 
 

C.S. Lewis fascinates Christians almost as much as his riveting tales of Narnia and other alien worlds. His fiction writing is often understood as a mirror of his spiritual journey, a question many of his fans know little about. How did this atheist become a Christian and so powerfully testify to the gospel in his writings?

Fresh, insightful, and moving Devin Brown’s A Life Observed focuses on Lewis’ writings in order to better understand the real-life spiritual journey Lewis experienced. In doing so, he spotlights important facets from each of Lewis’ works that commonly go unnoticed. Lewis did not separate his experience from his writing; his writing is an expression of how he interpreted his own world. This book–brief, concise, and penetrating–allows us to see Lewis at a deeper level.
