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 232 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.

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 219 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

"The Age of Reason covers 1570-1789, an era in which events such as the French Revolution and movements such as the Enlightenment spawned religious, cultural and political upheavals that still reverberate today. The text explores the conflicts between Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Christianity, as well as schisms within these groups. The rise of sectarianism and Pietism, the spread of the faith to various regions of the globe, and the impact of the Great Awakening all played a large role in shaping the context for today's global church."--BOOK JACKET
