Capital punishment : a reader( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Capital Punishment: A Reader not only presents a pro-con debate of this issue. It also sheds light on contrasting understandings of the crucial role of justice in ethics. It shows how different ways of interpreting scriptures and different understandings of God can support stances for or against the death penalty. And perhaps most important, it uses the capital punishment debate to spell out what is wrong in our society and what we need to do to ensure a more just and peaceful society order." "Glen Stassen has assembled a broad range of contributors, including recognized theologians, ethicists, and writers, who examine all angles of this subject. For those who seek a single volume of balanced, accessible information to help them form their own opinions, Capital Punishment is an essential resource."--Jacket

The war of the lamb : the ethics of nonviolence and peacemaking by John Howard Yoder( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before his sudden death, Yoder planned the essays and structure of The War of the Lamb, which he intended to be his last work. Now leading interpreters of Yoder bring that work to fruition. The War of the Lamb covers pacifism, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory. It crystallizes Yoder's argument that his proposed ethics is not sectarian and a matter of withdrawal. Yoder also clearly argues that Christian just war and Christian pacifist traditions are basically compatible--and more specifically, that the Christian just war tradition itself presumes against all violence. --from publisher description

A thicker Jesus : incarnational discipleship in a secular age by Glen Harold Stassen( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why have some Christians, such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Luther King Jr., been able to speak truth to power at great personal cost, while others readily capitulate to injustice? In this magnum opus, Christian ethicist Glen Stassen argues that such robust Christianity stems from believing in a "thicker" Jesus, who is Lord over the whole of life and not just one compartment of it. Belief in this thicker Jesus results in "incarnational discipleship" and can help Christians deal with the challenges of what Charles Taylor has identified as a secular age. Stassen elegantly weaves the characteristics of incarnational discipleship as correctives to secularism
Living the Sermon on the mount : a practical hope for grace and deliverance by Glen Harold Stassen( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Living the Sermon on the Mount, theologian and award-winning author Glen H. Stassen helps us to see that the revolutionary ideas in the Sermon on the Mount about loving and caring for each other, living in peace, and acting justly are not unattainable ideals but a recipe for wholeness and healing in our human relationships and deliverance from the vicious cycles that we get stuck in

Formation for life : just peacemaking and twenty-first-century discipleship( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From all corners of the world, both inside cities and in the remote countryside, the cry for "just peace" rings out loud and strong. But, as many will note in this book, the cry for just peace isn't enough, for just peace requires active faith, working hands, and willing hearts.Gathered in this volume are essays written from a wide variety of perspectives, religious traditions, nationalities, and ages (from a sixteen-year-old high school student to an eighty-four-year-old senior professor) that seek to offer insight toward answering one question: How are "just peacemaking," faith formation, and discipleship connected within a twenty-first-century context?
The journey into peacemaking by Glen Harold Stassen( Book )

3 editions published between 1983 and 1987 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Howard Yoder : radical theologian by J. Denny Weaver( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Howard Yoder: Radical Theologian' shows that for John Howard Yoder both theology (in particular Christology) and ethics are expressions of the meaning of the narrative of Jesus. All such statements are relative to a particular context, so that theology and ethics are subject to reaching back to the narrative in order to restate the meaning in new and ever-changing contexts. This methodology is visible in Yoder's 'Preface to Theology', which has been little used in most treatments of Yoder's thought. Yoder has been characterised as standing on Nicene orthodoxy, criticised for rejecting Nicene orthodoxy, called heterodox, and designated a postmodern thinker to be interpreted in terms of other such thinkers. None of these characterisations adequately locates the basis of his methodology in the narrative of Jesus. Thus 'John Howard Yoder: Radical Theologian' aims to go beyond or to supersede existing treatments with its demonstration that Yoder is a radical theologian in the historical meaning of radical (that is, as one who returns to the root) but also relates his theology to the personal accusations that clouded his later years. For Christian faith, this root is Christ. Parts II and III of the book explore the sources of Yoder's approach, and its application in several contemporary contexts
Abrahamic alternatives to war : Jewish, Christian, and Muslim perspectives on just peacemaking by Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eight Muslim scholar-leaders, six Jewish scholar-leaders, and eight Christian scholar-leaders met from June 13 to 15, 2007, in Stony Point, N.Y., at a conference sponsored by the United States Institute of Peace and the Churches' Center for Theology and Public Policy. Conference participants specified practices within each of the three faith traditions that could lay the groundwork for nonviolent alternatives to resolving conflict and addressing injustice, while also identifying roadblocks in the sacred texts of their traditions to creating such processes. The scholars' teachings found that these ancient religious teachings on peace and justice are often consistent with modern conflict-resolution theory. This report examines passages that support violence in each tradition's scripture, presents definitions of 'just peacemaking" in each tradition, summarizes places of convergence that might create the foundation for a program offering an Abrahamic alternative to war and presents a joint statement and series of commitments reached at the end of the conference

Hearts divided : Baptism and the Jews in the Third Reich( Visual )

In 1933 Berlin Bishop Joachim Hossenfelder proclaimed the popular, pro-Nazi "German Christian" movement the "Storm Troopers of Christ." Hossenfelder led the early phase of a movement that still echoes through the church today, even though the world has tried to forget. This film looks at the people who lived through the movement: Ludwig Mueller, the bishop of the Third Reich, Martin Niemoeller, the first to resist the Nazification of the church, Karl Themel, a pastor who used baptismal certificates to send "Jewish Christians" to the concentration camps, Werner Syltan, a pastor who died at Dachau because of his work on behalf of persons of Jewish descent amd Walter Grundmann, a reknown Biblical scholar and architect of the "Institute for the Study and Eradication of Jewish Influence on German Church Life."
