Conversing with Barth( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 186 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 )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 154 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 139 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Higton draws on unpublished material in the Frei archives to present an original interpretation of Frei's theology.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
The modern theologians reader by Simeon Zahl( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modern theologians reader is a unique text providing a collection of the key readings on all the major topics which have shaped modern theology. Each reading is accompanied by an introduction and helpful annotations to guide students through the relevance and importance of each extract. It can be used on its own, or an accompaniment to the third edition of the highly successful textbook, The modern theologians. The volume begins with a selection of the original writings of such 20th-century luminaries as Barth, Bonhoeffer, Lubac, Rahner, Balthasar, as well as many others. Other sections feature the seminal texts that influenced Christian theology in areas such as modernity, science, and global engagements. Seminal writings on theology between faiths - including Judaism, Buddhism, and Islam - are also presented, as well as discussions on theology and the visual arts, music, and film. The comprehensive series of original extracts allows the reader to develop their own theological judgments, and follow the development of the important debates that have shaped modern theology
Modern theology : a critical introduction by Rachel Muers( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a fresh and up-to-date introduction to modern Christian theology. The 'long nineteenth century' saw enormous transformations of theology, and of thought about religion, that shaped the way both Christianity and 'religion' are understood today. Muers and Higton provide a lucid guide to the development of theology since 1789, giving students a critical understanding of their own 'modern' assumptions, of the origins of the debates and the fields of study in which they are involved, and of major modern thinkers. Modern Theology:introduces the context and work of a selection of majo
Christian doctrine by Mike Higton( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 68 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 Routledge companion to the practice of Christian theology( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Companion introduces readers to the practice of Christian theology, covering what theologians do, why they do it, and what steps readers can take in order to become theological practitioners themselves. The volume aims to capture the variety of practices involved in doing theology, highlighting the virtues that guide them and the responsibilities that shape them. It also shows that the description of these practices, virtues and responsibilities is itself theological: what Christian theologians do is shaped by the wider practices and beliefs of Christianity. Written by a team of leading theologians, the Companion provides a unique resource for students and scholars of theology alike
The text in play : experiments in reading scripture by Mike Higton( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 60 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
