3 A History of Anglicanism

Kevin Ward

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2006, 0521008662 / 9780521008662, First Edition, Paperback, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
Anglicanism can be seen as irredeemably English. In this book Kevin Ward questions that assumption. He explores the character of the African, Asian, Oceanic, Caribbean and Latin American churches which are now a majority in the world-wide communion, and shows how they are decisively shaping what it means to be Anglican. While emphasising the importance of colonialism and neo-colonialism for explaining the globalisation of Anglicanism, Ward does not focus predominantly on the Churches of Britain and N. America; nor does he privilege the idea of Anglicanism as an 'expansion of English Christianity'. At a time when Anglicanism faces the danger of dissolution Ward explores the historically deep roots of non-Western forms of Anglicanism, and the importance of the diversity and flexibility which has so far enabled Anglicanism to develop cohesive yet multiform identities around the world. ?Provides a comprehensive history of the non-white development of Anglicanism in both indigenous and Diaspora settings ?Each chapter highlights the distinctive nature of the Anglican church in a specific region ?Analyses the present crisis over homosexuality within a world-wide context Contents 1. Introduction: ‘not English, but Anglican? 2. The Atlantic Isles and World Anglicanism; 3. The United States; 4. Canada; 5. The Caribbean; 6. Latin America; 7. West Africa; 8. Southern Africa; 9.

6 A Social History of Christianity: North-west India Since 1800

John C.B. Webster

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0195690451 / 9780195690453, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The Christian community in India emerged from an Indian rather than a foreign or an imperial context. Its internal dynamics were shaped far more by Indian social realities than by missionary designs. This book presents, for the first time, a connected and comprehensive social history of Christianity, in north-west India, the region which the British called 'The Punjab and its Dependencies'. Today it comprises the Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, the Union Territories of Delhi and Chandigarh, and the Pakistani Punjab and North-West Frontier Province. This book covers the history of the north-west up to 1947 after which it focuses on developments within India and deals only indirectly with Pakistan. It is arranged chronologically. Each chapter is set off by important events in the region, starting from the turn of the nineteenth century when Ranjit Singh came to power in Lahore (1799) and the British in Delhi (1803). The author highlights the events of 1857 that had a traumatic effect on the Christians; how Christians later responded to the rise, first of religious reform/revivalist movements, and then of nationalist as well as communal politics in the north-west. The closing chapters discuss the transfer of power within churches from foreign missionaries to Indians, the proliferation of churches, and the ongoing struggles of the Christian community following independence. Throughout the book, the author pays special attention to the Christian community’s caste composition—the ways in which caste status and social mobility affected intra and inter-community relations—religious diversity, uneven demographic distribution, as well as its development both as a community and as a religious movement in the region. 026132

7 A Theology of Public Life

Charles T. Mathewes

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2007, 0521832268 / 9780521832267, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
What has Washington to do with Jerusalem? In the raging debates about the relationship between religion and politics, no one has explored the religious benefits and challenges of public engagement for Christian believers - until now. This ground-breaking book defends and details Christian believers' engagement in contemporary pluralistic public life not from the perspective of some neutral ‘public? but from the particular perspective of Christian faith, arguing that such engagement enriches both public life and Christian citizens' faith themselves. As such it offers not a ‘public theology? but a ‘theology of public life? analyzing the promise and perils of Christian public engagement, discussing the nature of civic commitment and prophetic critique, and the relation of a loving faith to a liberal politics of justice. Theologically rich, philosophically rigorous, politically, historically and sociologically informed, this book advances contemporary discussion of ‘religion and public life?in fundamental ways. ?Introduces readers to relevant conversations in the fields of philosophy, political science, history, and sociology ?Builds on the last few decades' revisionist appreciation of the thought of Augustine ?Advances contemporary discussions of 'religion and public life' in fundamental ways Contents Introduction: life in the epilogue, during the world; Part I. A Theology of Engagement: Introduction; 1. Life before God; 2. Life in the world; 3. Life together; Part II. The Liturgy of Citizenship: Introduction; 4. Faithful citizenship; 5. Hopeful citizenship; 6. Charitable citizenship; Conclusion: The republic of grace; or, the public ramifications of heaven. Printed Pages: 400. 018639

Part II offers a theological reflection on the characteristics of the kingdom of God which Christians are urged to seek. Part III reviews Catholic social thought in six main areas: human rights, the family and bioethical issues, economic life, social exclusion, authentic development, and war and peace. Part IV completes the cycle with a consideration of appropriate social action responses to the injustices which the author has identified and analysed. ?Reviews development of both official and non-official Catholic social thought ?Draws attention to the need for both a social analysis of the causes of injustice and a theological reflection to underpin social action ?The emphasis on social analysis is unique to this book Contents Part I.

11 An Introduction to Quakerism

Pink Dandelion

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0521841119 / 9780521841115, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
This is the first comprehensive introduction to Quakerism which balances a history of the theology of the Quakers or Friends with an overview of present day practice. It charts the growth of the Quaker movement through the 1650s and 1660s, its different theological emphasis in the eighteenth century, and the schisms of the nineteenth century which resulted in the range of Quaker traditions found around the world today. The book focuses in particular on notions of 'endtime', 'spiritual intimacy', and what counts as 'the world' as key areas of theological change. The second half of the book uses extracts from Quaker texts to highlight differences in belief and approach between the different traditions and analyses their future prospects. The book is generously illustrated and includes numerous diagrams to help the reader. Undergraduate and graduate students will find this an essential introduction to the Quaker movement. ?Balances a history of Quaker theology with an overview of present day practice ?Includes numerous illustrations, supplementary text panels, charts and diagrams ?Comprehensively indexed and thoroughly cross-referenced Contents Introduction; Part I.

13 Christ and Horrors: The Coherence of Christology (Current Issues in Theology: 4)

Marilyn McCord Adams

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2006, 0521866820 / 9780521866828, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
Who would the Saviour have to be, what would the Saviour have to do to rescue human beings from the meaning-destroying experiences of their lives? This book offers a systematic Christology that is at once biblical and philosophical. Starting with human radical vulnerability to horrors such as permanent pain, sadistic abuse or genocide, it develops what must be true about Christ if He is the horror-defeater who ultimately resolves all the problems affecting the human condition and Divine-human relations. Distinctive elements of Marilyn McCord Adams' study are her defence of the two-natures theory, of Christ as Inner Teacher and a functional partner in human flourishing, and her arguments in favour of literal bodily resurrection (Christ's and ours) and of a strong doctrine of corporeal Eucharistic presence. The book concludes that Christ is the One in Whom, not only Christian doctrine, but cosmos, church, and the human psyche hold together. ?Examines what it might mean for Christ to 'save' humankind from the worst kinds of dehumanizing experiences, and what this implies about his nature and work ?Marilyn McCord Adams expertly marshals a wealth of biblical, patristic, medieval and modern sources to support her arguments ?Provides a penetrating reassessment of central tenets of the Christian faith, ultimately reaffirming their philosophical coherence Contents Preface; 1. Christology as natural theology; 2. Posing the problems; 3. Sharing the horrors; 4. Psychologizing the person; 5. Recovering the metaphysics; 6. Learning the meanings; 7. Cosmic coherence: the primacy of Christ; 8. Resurrection and renewal; 9. Horrors and holocausts, sacrifices and priests; 10. Christ in the sacrament of the altar. Printed Pages: 344. 018632

20 Christianization and Communication in Late Antiquity: John Chrysostom and His Congregation in Antioch

Jaclyn Maxwell

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2006, 0521860407 / 9780521860406, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
How did ordinary people and church authorities communicate with each other in late antiquity and how did this interaction affect the processes of Christianization in the Roman Empire? By studying the relationship between the preacher and his congregation within the context of classical, urban traditions of public speaking, this book explains some of the reasons for the popularity of Christian sermons during the period. Its focus on John Chrysostom’s sermons allows us to see how an educated church leader responded to and was influenced by a congregation of ordinary Christians. As a preacher in Antioch, Chrysostom took great care to convey his lessons to his congregation, which included a broad cross-section of society. Because of this, his sermons provide a fascinating view into the variety of beliefs held by the laity, demonstrating that many people could be actively engaged in their religion while disagreeing with their preacher. ?Offers a new and important approach to the ‘Christianization?of the Roman Empire in late antiquity ?Examines John Chrysostom’s sermons in their wider social context ?Integrates the study of early Christian sermons into the traditions of urban, public speaking in the Roman world Contents Introduction; 1. Philosophical preaching in the Roman world; 2. Rhetoric and society: contexts of public speaking in late antique Antioch; 3. John Chrysostom’s congregation in Antioch; 4. Teaching to the converted: John Chrysostom’s pedagogy; 5. Practical knowledge and religious life; 6. Habits and the Christianization of daily life; Conclusions. Printed Pages: 210. 018618

21 Discerning the Spirits: Theological and Ethical Hermeneutics in Paul

Andre Munzinger

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2007, 0521875943 / 9780521875943, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
How did Paul determine ethical and theological truth? Were all believers expected to be able to 'discern the spirits' (1 Corinthians 12.10)? This study shows that discernment must be understood against the backdrop of an extensive hermeneutic, by which Paul inherently relates ethical and theological knowledge. Understanding the will of God requires noetic and existential transformation, in short, the 'renewal of the mind' (Romans 12.2). Munzinger argues that Paul implies a process of inspiration in which the Spirit sharpens the discerning functions of the mind because the believer is liberated from a value system dominated by status and performance. The love of God enables all believers to learn to interpret reality in a transformed manner and to develop creative solutions to questions facing their communities. For Paul authentic discernment is linked to a comprehensive new sense of meaning. ?Investigates Paul's understanding of ethical and theological knowledge, and how to 'discern the will of God??Offers insights from philosophy, psychology and sociology as well as from specialist New Testament perspectives ?Relevant to pastors and lay people seeking Biblical guidance regarding difficult decisions Contents Part I. Introduction; 1. The conceptual approach; Part II. What Requires Discernment? The Objects of Evaluation: 2. The discernment of ethical questions; 3. The discernment of spirits; 4. Discerning all things. The Structure of Pauls epistemology; Part III. How Can and Should True Discernment Take Place?: 5. The context and background of Paul; 6. How does Paul believe true discernment can and should take place?; Part IV. Conclusion: 7. Recapitualtion and implications for theology. Printed Pages: 264 with 1 figure. 018644

22 Divinity and Humanity (Current Issues in Theology: 5)

Oliver D. Crisp

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2007, 0521873525 / 9780521873529, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
The doctrine of the Incarnation lies at the heart of Christianity. But the idea that 'God was in Christ' has become a much-debated topic in modern theology. Oliver Crisp addresses six key issues in the Incarnation defending a robust version of the doctrine, in keeping with classical Christology. He explores perichoresis, or interpenetration, with reference to both the Incarnation and Trinity. Over two chapters Crisp deals with the human nature of Christ and then provides an argument against the view, common amongst some contemporary theologians, that Christ had a fallen human nature. He considers the notion of divine kenosis or self-emptying, and discusses non-Incarnational Christology, focusing on the work of John Hick. This view denies Christ is God Incarnate, regarding him as primarily a moral exemplar to be imitated. Crisp rejects this alternative account of the nature of Christology. ?Deals with six core issues in the doctrine of the Incarnation ?Includes topics such as perichoresis and Christ's human nature not often discussed in contemporary texts on this theme ?Offers a philosophically sophisticated account that is sensitive to the Christian tradition Contents Introduction; 1. Problems with perichoresis; 2. The human nature of Christ; 3. The anhypostasia-enhypostasia distinction; 4. Did Christ have a fallen human nature?; 5. Divine kenosis; 5.

24 Early Evangelicalism: A Global Intellectual History, 1670-1789

W.R. Ward

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2006, 0521864046 / 9780521864046, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
Evangelicalism contributed to the great transformation of ideas in the modern world. This book represents a pioneering study of discussions within the evangelical movements from Central Europe to the American colonies about what constituted evangelical identity and of the basis of the fraternity among evangelical leaders of strikingly different backgrounds. Through a global study of the major figures and movements in the early Evangelical world, W. R. Ward aims to show that down through the eighteenth century the evangelical elite had coherent answers to the general intellectual problems of their day and that piety as well as the enlightenment was a significant motor of intellectual change. However, as the century wore on the evangelicals lost the ability to state a broad intellectual setting for their case, and when they entered on their period of greatest social influence in the nineteenth century their former cohesion disintegrated into acute partisan wrangling. ?An ambitious survey of early Evangelicalism ?Written by an established scholar in this field ?Will appeal to scholars in religious history, religious studies and theology Contents Preface; Introduction; 1. The Thought-world of Early Evangelicalism; 2. Spener and the Origins of Church Pietism; 3. The Mystic Way or the Mystic Ways; 4. The Development of Pietism in the Reformed Churches; 5.

25 Erasmus, Contarini, and the Religious Republic of Letters

Constance M. Furey

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2005, 052184987X / 9780521849876, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
Though the paradigm of modernist progression has been challenged on many fronts, Erasmus and other sixteenth-century figures are still commonly viewed as people who led the transition from a religious Middle Ages to a more godless modern era. Erasmus, Contarini and the Religious Republic of Letters complicates this transition by analyzing a unique realm of spiritualized scholarship that cannot fit easily into any conventional intellectual chronology. By analyzing the lives, work, and correspondence of Erasmus, Thomas More, Margaret More Roper, Reginald Pole, Gasparo Contarini, and Vittoria Colonna, this book demonstrates how these Catholic men and women of letters created a distinctive kind of religious community rooted in friendship and spiritualized scholarship. By spanning the too frequently respected gap between humanist reformers in northern and southern Europe, the book uncovers a widespread, if previously less visible, network that exhibited concerns we still grapple with today. ?Counters secularization thesis by showing how Catholic intellectuals created a new kind of religious community rooted in friendship and spiritualized scholarship ?Provides alternative to current claims about gender in the Renaissance by using sources by women alongside those by men ?Contributes to the history of reading by showing that for leading Catholic men and women of letters, even non-devotional scholarship was imbued with religious significance Contents 1. A new kind of religious life; 2. Creating an alternative community: spiritual values and the search for meaning; 3. The spiritual quest: reading and writing about God and salvation; 4. Necessary relationships: desire for God and each other; 5. Defining the ideal: words of praise for fools and bishops, women and martyrs; 6. Epilogue. Printed Pages: 270 with 1 half-tone. 018628

Anthony Bash

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2007, 0521878802 / 9780521878807, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
What does it mean to forgive? The answer is widely assumed to be self-evident but critical analysis quickly reveals the complexities of the subject. Forgiveness has traditionally been the preserve of Christian theology, though in the last half century - and at an accelerating pace - psychologists, lawyers, politicians and moral philosophers have all been making an important contribution to questions about and our understanding of the subject. Anthony Bash offers a vigorous restatement of the Christian view of forgiveness in critical dialogue with those both within and without the Christian tradition. Forgiveness is a much more complicated subject than many theologians recognize. Bash explores the relevance of the theoretical discussion of the topic to recent events such as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, post-Holocaust trials, the aftermath of 9/11 and July 7 and various high-profile criminal cases. ?Illustrated with topical examples ?Offers a new Christian theology of interpersonal forgiveness ?Considers the views of psychologists, lawyers, philosophers and politicians as well as theologians Contents Introduction; 1. Forgiveness and wrongdoing; 2. Forgiveness then and now; 3. Forgiveness and psychological therapy; 4. Justice and forgiveness; 5. Forgiveness and the New Testament; 6. The ideal of forgiveness; 7.

30 Human Evolution and Christian Ethics (New Studies in Christian Ethics: 28)

Stephen J. Pope

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2007, 0521863406 / 9780521863407, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
Can the origins of morality be explained entirely in evolutionary terms? If so, what are the implications for Christian moral theology and ethics? Is the latter redundant, as socio-biologists often assert? Stephen Pope argues that theologians need to engage with evolutionary theory rather than ignoring it. He shows that our growing knowledge of human evolution is compatible with Christian faith and morality, provided that the former is not interpreted reductionistically and the latter is not understood in fundamentalist ways. Christian ethics ought to incorporate evolutionary approaches to human nature to the extent that they provide helpful knowledge of the conditions of human flourishing, both collective and individual. From this perspective, a strong affirmation of human dignity and appreciation for the theological virtues of faith, hope and charity is consistent with a revised account of natural law and the cardinal virtues. ?Argues that Christians must give serious attention to evolutionary theories of morality and altruism ?Offers a critical but sympathetic reading of secular accounts of evolutionary ethics and sociobiology ?Suggests that Christian ethics and evolutionary theories are complementary rather than mutually exclusive Contents Preface; 1. Evolution and religion; 2. The indifference of Christian ethics to human evolution; 3. Varieties of reductionism; 4. Faith, creation and evolution; 5. Chance and purpose in evolution; 6. Human nature and the human good; 7. Freedom and responsibility; 8. Human dignity and common descent; 9. Christian love and evolutionary altruism; 10. The natural roots of morality; 11. Natural law in an evolutionary context; 12. Sex, marriage and family. Printed Pages: 352. 018641

Very little is known about Jesus in his formative years. In the Gospel stories, we witness the birth of Jesus and then see him as a young boy of twelve, intensely questioning the Rabbis in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. He does not reappear until age thirty when he emerges as the potent and stirring rebel baptized by John at the River Jordan. What happened to Jesus in those lost years? How did Jesus the boy become Christ the Saviour? These are the questions that motivate bestselling writer Deepak Chopra to attempt a fresh re-imagining of a young man's transformational journey from carpenter's son to revolutionary leader to spiritual saviour. From his unceremonious birth in Bethlehem to the ultimate betrayal by his friend Judas in Jerusalem, Chopra captures the life of one of the world's most written about men, as never before. 028057

Jesus Lived in India: His Unknown Life Before and After the Crucifixion, Holger Kersten
35 Jesus Lived in India: His Unknown Life Before and After the Crucifixion

Holger Kersten

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 0143028294 / 9780143028291, Reprint, Paperback, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Why has Christianity chosen to ignore its connections with the religions of the East, and to dismiss repeatedly the numerous claims that Jesus spent a large part of his life in India? This compelling book presents irrefutable evidence that Jesus did indeed live in India, dying there in old age. The result of many years of investigative research, Jesus Lived in India takes the reader to all the historical sites connected with Jesus in Israel, the Middle East, Afghanistan and India. As well as revealing age-old links between the Israelites and the East, the evidence found by theologian Holger Kersten points to the following startling conclusions: In his youth Jesus followed the ancient Silk Road to India. While there he studied Buddhism, adopting its tenets and becoming a spiritual master. Jesus survived the crucifixion. After the ‘resurrection?Jesus returned to India to die in old age. Jesus was buried in Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir, where he continues to be revered as a saintly man. The tomb of Jesus still exists in Kashmir. The author, Holger Kersten, specializes in religious history. He studied theology and pedagogics at Freiburg University, Germany and has travelled extensively in the Middle East and India. He is the co-author of The Jesus Conspiracy. Printed Pages: 296. 029092

40 Monastic Life in Anglo-Saxon England, c. 600-900

Sarah Foot

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2006, 0521859468 / 9780521859462, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
This major new history of monasticism in early Anglo-Saxon England explores the history of the Church between the conversion to Christianity in the sixth century and a monastic revival in the tenth. It represents the first comprehensive revision of accepted views about monastic life in England before the Benedictine reform. Sarah Foot shows how early Anglo-Saxon religious houses were simultaneously active and contemplative, their members withdrawing from the preoccupations of contemporary aristocratic society while in a very real sense remaining part of that world. Focusing on the institution of the 'minster' (the communal religious community) and rejecting a simplistic binary division between active 'minsters' and enclosed 'monasteries', Foot argues that historians have been wrong to see minsters in the light of ideals of Benedictine monasticism. Instead, she demonstrates that Anglo-Saxon minsters reflected more of contemporary social attitudes; despite their aim for solitude, they retained close links to aristocratic German society. ?First revisionist account of early English monasticism ?Accessibly written, with numerous quotations in English from contemporary sources ?Draws on an impressive range of sources, including liturgy, diplomatic and narrative history and archaeology Contents 1. Introduction: situating the problem; 2. The ideal minster; Part I. Within the Walls: 3. The making of minsters; 4. The minster community; 5. Daily life within the minster; Part II. Without the Walls: 6. Dependencies, affinities, clusters; 7. Minsters in the world; Coda; 8. Horizons; Bibliography. Review Printed Pages: 414 with 13 line diagrams and 15 half-tones. 018619

Pilgrimage and Faith: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam explores pilgrimage as experienced in Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim faith communities. It addresses shared goals of personal development and communal solidarity as deep human needs. Unique in scope, this richly illustrated catalogue addresses religious diversity in a global perspective. Dating from the 12th century to the present day, ninety-five historical objects and mementos of present-day pilgrimages are beautifully presented in their context with a collection of essays by leading international scholars. Fine examples include sculptures in wood and limestone from France and copper and bronze from Tibet, a pilgrimage itinerary book from Japan, stained glass from the Middle Ages, a Renaissance enameled chalice from Italy, a lavish embellished Quran from Iran, and Islamic prayer scrolls in silver amulet casings. By studying objects of supreme artistic skill along with mass-produced objects and personal acquisitions such as stones or soil from the holy place, the scholars shed new light on the continuity of pilgrimage and faith ?the past and the present and the motivations and experiences of persons of all social strata. The exhibition starts at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery, College of the Holy Cross, Worcester MA, then travels to the Loyola University Museum of Art, Chicago, the University of Richmond Art Museums, Richmond, VA, and finally the Rubin Museum of Art, New York City. This accompanying catalogue offers unique contributions that combine both general and specialist appeal ?an important addition to any private and public library.

47 Religion and Anthropology: A Critical Introduction

Brian Morris

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0521617790 / 9780521617796, First Edition, Paperback, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
This important textbook provides a critical introduction to the social anthropology of religion, focusing on more recent classical ethnographies. Comprehensive, free of scholastic jargon, engaging, and comparative in approach, it covers all the major religious traditions that have been studied concretely by anthropologists - Shamanism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and its relation to African and Melanesian religions and contemporary Neopaganism. Eschewing a thematic approach and treating religion as a social institution and not simply as an ideology or symbolic system, the book follows the dual heritage of social anthropology in combining an interpretative understanding and sociological analysis. The book will appeal to all students of anthropology, whether established scholars or initiates to the discipline, as well as to students of the social sciences and religious studies, and for all those interested in comparative religion. ?Emphasizes religion as a social institution, rather than merely an ideological or symbolic system ?Clear, jargon-free language ?Studies a broad range of religions, including Shamanism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, African religions, and contemporary Neo-Paganism Contents Preface; Introduction; 1. Shamanism; 2. Buddhism and spirit cults; 3. Islam and popular religion; 4. Hinduism and new religious movements; 5. Christianity and religion in Africa; 6. African American religion; 7.

Evangelicalism, a vibrant and growing expression of historic Christian orthodoxy, is already one of the largest and most geographically diverse global religious movements. This Companion offers an up-to-date articulation of evangelical theology that is both faithful to historic evangelical convictions and in dialogue with contemporary intellectual contexts and concerns. In addition to original and creative essays on central Christian doctrines such as Christ, the Trinity, and Justification, it breaks new ground by offering evangelical reflections on issues such as gender, race, culture, and world religions. This volume also moves beyond the confines of Anglo-American perspectives to offer separate essays exploring evangelical theology in African, Asian, and Latin American contexts. The contributors to this volume form an unrivalled list of many of today's most eminent evangelical theologians and important emerging voices. ?Reflects strongly and explicitly the global nature of Evangelicalism ?Presents the theology of this extremely influential community ?Discusses both classical theological themes and evangelical views on contemporary concerns Contents 1.
