Doing theology in today's world : essays in honor of Kenneth S. Kantzer( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume focuses on a central question: What does a person need to know for developing a theology? In other words, this book will not only answer objections lodged against the study of theology but will explain to students, pastors, and laypersons alike what a theologian actually does. It will also present different approaches to the study of theology and review the present status of theological reflection in various Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic traditions. In the first section of the book evangelical Protestant scholars describe the contributions various disciplines make to the study of theology. In the next section, evangelical Protestant scholars explain the distinctives of their particular tradition's approach in doing theology. In the third part, theologians who do not identify with evangelical Protestant convictions seek to explain the distinctives of their approaches to doing theology. In the final section, Dr. Kantzer provides a summary analysis of how he does theology and interacts critically with a number of the essays in this volume. Among the contributors are Gordon D. Kaufman, Schubert Ogden, J.I. Packer, John Meyendorf, Richard A. Muller, Orlando Costas, Rosemary Radford Ruether, Gerald Sheppard, Harold O.J. Brown, John Yodel, and D.A. Carson
A public faith : from Constantine to the Medieval world, A.D. 312-600 by Ivor J Davidson( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book covers the period A.D. 312-600. These centuries saw the official favoring of the Christian faith in the Roman Empire and the expansion of Christianity in western Europe as well as in the Mediterranean region, Asia, and Africa. This era also witnessed the fragmentation of the political world in which the church began. Examining the challenges and opportunities generated by change, consolidation, and growth, Ivor J. Davidson assesses the complex but fascinating ways in which Christianity developed during these dramatic times
Church history : the rise and growth of the church in its cultural, intellectual, and political context by Everett Ferguson( Book )

in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Church History offers a contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed. It did so not in a vacuum, but in a setting of times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by the church. Church History looks closely at the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church. The first volume explores the development of the church from the days of Jesus to the years prior to the Reformation. Filled with maps, charts, and illustrations, it offers overviews of the Roman, Greek, and Jewish worlds; insights into the church's relationship to the Roman empire, with glimpses into pagan attitudes toward Christians; the place of art and architecture, literature and philosophy, both sacred and secular; and much more, spanning the time from the first through the thirteenth centuries. Volume two displays the growth of the church from just prior to the Reformation through the next five-hundred-plus years into the present. Filled with maps, charts, and illustrations, it is an account of the ups and downs, the triumphs and struggles, of the Christian movement, offering a unique contextual view of the cultural, intellectual, and political contexts of the Christian church

Ambassadors for Christ( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Korean and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"God commissions us to be Thessalonian Christians, proclaiming His peace throught Christ." In that role we are called to be active participants-ambassadors for Christ. Within these pages you will read the fascinating stories of less-than-perfect Christians who overcame life's hardships and disappointments to bring God's message of reconciliation to their hopeless, turbulent world. For instance, did you know that: Josh McDowell, pastor, author, and speaker, stuttered as a child; Edith Schaeffer, missionary and author, along with her four children, were once driven from their home for having a religious influence in their village; Steve Green, contemporary recording artist, was rebellious and hard-hearted as a teenager; Mary Bethune, educator, felt God calling her to a ministry in Aftrica but was turned down by her mission board. Even in her final days, the drums of Africa haunted her. Through the lives of these ordinary believers you'll find that God seldom recruits perfect people to be His ambassadors. Instead, He often uses 'damaged' individuals who are simply available to serve Him. These cameos of believers will inspire you to discover your own role in representing Christ's message of goodwill in your community"--Jacket
