The Blackwell companion to Protestantism by Alister E McGrath( Book )

27 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Companion brings together new contributions from internationally renowned scholars in order to examine the past, present and future of Protestantism. The volume opens with an investigation into the formation of Protestant identity, looking at its historical development across Europe, North America, Asia, Australasia and Africa. This section includes coverage of leading Protestant thinkers, such as Luther, Calvin, Schleiermacher and Barth. The Companion then goes on to consider the interaction of Protestantism with different areas of modern life, including the arts, politics, the law and science. A final section looks to the future of Protestantism, debating what will happen to both Western and non-Western Protestant movements. The Companion takes seriously the shift in Protestantism from a predominantly North Atlantic perspective to a more global reality.; A strength of the volume is contributions by indigenous scholars on regional Protestant history and context as well as essays that examine the nature of neo-Protestant forms and the future of historic Protestantism identities as a consequence of increasing secularity and the emergence of 'new' non-Eurocentric or American Protestants
Shaping a global theological mind by Darren C Marks( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theological thinkers are placed into contexts which inform their theological tasks but that context is usually limited to a European or North American centre, usually ignoring minorities and lesser mainstream theologies even in that context. This work focuses on the shift of Christian theological thinking from the North Atlantic to the Global South, even within the North Atlantic Church and Academy. It gives a Global perspective on theological work, method and context. Theologians from North America, Great Britain and Europe, Africa, Asia, Central and South America comment on how their specifi

Bringing theology to life : key doctrines for Christian faith and mission by Darren C Marks( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this engaging text Darren Marks provides a refreshing introduction to Christian faith that will be of special interest to university and seminary students. Innovative in his organization, Marks explores seven key doctrines and highlights the profound interconnections among them in a way that points us beyond the mere theological formulations to the living God of the Bible. Engaging academic discussions of the past and the present, Marks contextualizes these doctrines and shows their meaning for the day-to-day life of a faith community. Including illustrative narrative callouts and study questions, this book ultimately aims to inspire, illuminate and encourage Christians toward a vital and relevant life of worship, discipleship and mission. - Publisher
War, human dignity and nation building : theological perspectives on Canada's role in Afghanistan( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canada's involvement in Afghanistan is the longest martial conflict in its history, precipitated literally overnight by a world changing event in the 2001 9/11 attack in New York City. in 2010, the Afghan 'mission' remains front page news for Canadians, even threatening to undermine the Federal Government due to the so-called 'detainee scandal'. The human cost (Canadian and Afghan), financial burdens and impact on the self-perception of Canadians as a peace keeping 'Middle-Power' are immense and likeliy will form a watershed in Canadian history. And yet, the 'mission' remains little crutinized by faith communities, and further, left as a non-conversation for many and the domain of a nebulous foreign policy and largely toothless Manley Report. This volume is the first such major attempt by the Centre for Public Theology to bring together theologians, philosophers, faith leaders, NGOs, politicians and other academics from sociology, politics and peace-keeping in order to dialogue about the impact of the Afghan 'mission'. These papers form much of the conversation of a conference held in May 2009 at the Centre for Public Theology. The papers offer reflections on the Manley Report, investigations on the theological and philosophical issues at play in Canada's response, interaction with Canada's shift from 'peace-keeping' to 'war-fighting' and the new NATO mandate, thoughts on the role of Islamic nations and analysis of the role of the Abrahamic faith communities in this wider Canadian conversation"--Publisher's description, p.
