Conversing with Barth ( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents important new 'conversations with Barth' by leading contemporary theologians and Barth scholars. Each contributor offers their own distinctive emphasis to bring to light the ways in which the depths of Barth's work may illuminate or be illuminated by the work of other prominent thinkers who preceded or followed him. The conversations they host between Barth and other philosophers and theologians raise critical questions in the reading and appreciation of Barth's thought, and explore a wide range of themes in dogmatic theology."--Jacket
Difficult gospel : the theology of Rowan Williams by Mike Higton ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rowan Williams is widely recognized as a creative and powerful theologian, but his theological writings are frequently complex and difficult. This book provides a clear guide to all the main themes of his theology, and shows how they are related to his reading of the Bible, his engagement with the Christian tradition, and his grappling with contemporary culture. It shows how the Archbishop's ideas about peace or about popular culture, about sexuality or about evangelism, relate to his understanding of the nature of the life of God, and the good news of Jesus Christ
Christ, Providence, and history : Hans W. Frei's public theology by Mike Higton ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Higton draws on unpublished material in the Frei archives to present an original interpretation of Frei's theology. He places Frei's well-known work on biblical hermeneutics firmly in the context of his theological wrestling with Barth and of the dominant traditions of Western Protestant theology. He portrays Frei as a theologian fundamentally concerned with the ability of theology to speak about, and to, the public world -- and to regard that world as providentially ordered in Jesus Christ, without diminishing its concrete contingency and freedom. Frei emerges as not just a powerful historian of theology, but also as a persuasive, and hitherto largely unrecognized, theologian of history

Modern theology : a critical introduction by Rachel Muers ( Book )
10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Christian doctrine by Mike Higton ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The SCM Core Text: Christian Doctrine offers an up-to-date, accessible introduction to one of the core subjects of theology. Written for second and third year university students, it shows that Christian Doctrine is not a set of impossible claims to be clung to with blind faith. Mike Higton argues that it is, rather, a set of claims that emerge in the midst of Christian life, as Christian communities try to make enough sense of their lives and of their world to allow them to carry on." "This book explores these and other central Christian doctrines, and in each case shows how the doctrine makes sense, and how it is woven into Christian life. It will help readers to see what sense it might make to say the things that Christian doctrine says, and how that doctrine might affect the way that one looks at everything: the natural world, gossip, culture, speaking in tongues, politics, dieting, human, freedom, love, High Noon, justice, computers, racism, the novels of Jane Austen, parenthood, death and fashion."--Jacket
The text in play : experiments in reading scripture by Mike Higton ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In The Text in Play, Mike Higton and Rachel Muers conduct a series of experiments in the reading of Scripture. They experiment in the first place with a form of Christian theological exegesis of the Bible that they call "serious play"--A form of reading beyond the literal sense that is nevertheless serious about the ethical, historical, and textual responsibilities of the reader. They experiment in the second place with the practice called scriptural reasoning--in which Jews, Christians, and Muslims read and argue over their respective Scriptures together--and argue that the practice makes deep sense for "seriously playful" Christian readers. This constitutes the most detailed and developed account of scriptural reasoning yet published."--Publisher's website
