014800: The Age of the Spirit: How the Ghost of an Ancient Controversy Is Shaping the Church

f the Spirit: How the Ghost of an Ancient Controversy Is Shaping the Church
By Phyllis Tickle with Jon M. Sweeney
*** $4.99 ***

A thousand years ago, the church experienced a time of tremendous upheaval called the Great Schism. The one faith became two churches, East and West, and the course of world history was forever changed. And it all swirled around one Latin word in the Nicene Creed, filioque, that indicated the Holy Spirit proceeded both from God the Father “and from the Son.” From the time that phrase was officially instituted onward, the Holy Spirit’s place in the Trinity and role in the lives of believers would be fiercely debated, with ramifications being felt through the centuries to this very day.

In this fascinating book, readers will encounter not just the interesting historical realities that have shaped our faith today but also the present resurgence of interest in the Holy Spirit seen in many churches across the theological spectrum. Christianity is growing by leaps and bounds in places where it has never made deep inroads before. Pentecostalism, with its emphasis on the Spirit and spontaneity, is the predominant force. Tickle and Sweeney make accessible and relevant the forces behind the current upheaval in the church, taking readers by the hand and leading them confidently into the Age of the Spirit.

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.

829541: Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories and Prayers

Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories and Prayers
By Eugene H. Peterson

*** $3.99 ***


2009 Christianity Today Book Award of Merit in Spirituality

Just as God used words both to create the world and to give us commandments, we too use words for many different purposes. In fact, we use the same language to talk to each other and to talk to God. Can our everyday speech, then, be just as important as the words and prayers we hear from the pulpit? Eugene Peterson unequivocally says “Yes!”

Tell It Slant explores how Jesus used language—he was earthy, not abstract; metaphorical, not dogmatic. His was not a direct language of information or instruction but an indirect, oblique language requiring a participating imagination—“slant” language. In order to witness and teach accurately in Jesus’ name, then, it is important for us to use language the way he did.

25134: Abiding Astonishment: Psalms, Modernity, & the Making of History

Abiding Astonishment:
Psalms, Modernity, & the Making of History

By Walter Brueggemann

*** $1.99 ***

This examination of the “Psalms of Historical Recital” reviews this portion of Scripture’s social-political intention and function. Focusing on Psalms 78, 105, 106, and 136, Walter Brueggemann considers these psalms on their own terms and then takes up two issues that move in opposite interpretive directions: the Psalms in relation to the historical writing of modernity and the Psalms in relation to the voices of marginality. Brueggemann attempts to enter Israel’s past as that past is experienced, voiced, and advocated in the Psalms both as liberating affirmation and as controlling censure. Contains notes, bibliography and indices. Walter Brueggemann is Professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia.

432350: Evangelicals and Empire: Christian Alternatives to the Political Status Quo

Evangelicals and Empire: Christian Alternatives to the Political Status Quo
By Edited by Bruce Ellis Benson & Peter Goodwin Heltzel

*** 99c ***

In this collection of essays, Benson and Heltzel attempt to demonstrate how alternative evangelical traditions can challenge the evangelical politics that have dominated the scene for years, and also to illuminate how effectively some evangelicals have challenged the United States’ militaristic power in the recent past. They also seek to emphasize the differences (both ethnic and social) among evangelicals as a point of strength and to perpetuate the dialogue specifically concerning the politics of contemporary Pentecostals. In doing so, it is their desire to show that evangelicalism’s theological basis actually requires a politics of liberation, and that evangelical groups have struggled against American militarism as well as for the liberation of ordinary Americans.
 
433375: On God"s Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn"t Learned About Serving the Common Good

On God’s Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn’t Learned About Serving the Common Good
By Jim Wallis 

*** $1.99 ***

Bestselling author, public theologian, and leading Christian activist Jim Wallis speaks directly into our current context, revealing the spiritual compass we need to effect lasting change in our society. He explains how the good news of Jesus transforms not only our individual lives but also our public lives. Jesus’s gospel of the kingdom of God helps us recover a personal and social commitment to the common good and shows us–in concrete ways–how to be both personally responsible and socially just. Working together, we can reshape our churches, society, politics, and economy.

Releasing in the wake of the 2012 election cycle, this book seeks to move beyond the current media and political warfare and bring together a divided country. Wallis explores how Jesus’s agenda can serve the common good, what it takes to sustain a lifelong commitment to social justice, and how reading the Bible as well as the culture can shape our lives for genuine transformation.
