A Scandalous Providence: The Jesus Story of the Compassion of God: Revised and Updated
By author: E. Frank Tupper
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P434
ISBN: 9780881462609
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $40.00
The new edition of Scandalous Providence: The Jesus Story of the Compassion of God constructs a postmodern interpretation of the providence of God through a narrative rendering of providence on the basis of the epochal moments in the story of Jesus, a distinctive modern reconstruction of the theology of providence through a critical, non-reductionist interpretation of the Gospel traditions on the one side, and contemporary narratives of lived experience within the scientific understanding of the world on the other. Significant theological problems have rendered the reformulation of the doctrine of providence elusive and unachievable for more than half a century.

Product Code: P393

Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
New Testament scholars often proceed with their work as if their methods and areas of inquiry were predetermined. This work provides three important services for New Testament study, and Acts scholarship in particular. First, the work surveys contemporary Acts scholarship on two important topics of the day: the genre of Acts and issues of wealth and poverty in Luke-Acts. Second, this volume provides a careful analysis of the process of interpretation and calls for greater self-awareness among critical readers of Acts. Third, this book urges scholars to open themselves to new and broader areas of inquiry in the study of Acts.

" There are many persons," Lee suggests, "both inside and outside the church, who want to be a part of Christian faith, but they cannot abide the rigidity of some. These affirmiations offer a positive antidote. A compressed belief is not a dimished faith. A belief may be questioned, even discarded, and one still move on with a strong faith."

In "Amazing Grace," the best-loved of all hymns, John Newton's allusions to the drama of his life tell the story of a youth who was a virtual slave in Sierra Leone before ironically becoming a slave trader himself. Liverpool, his home port, was the center of the most colossal, lucrative, and inhumane slave trade the world has ever known. A gradual spiritual awakening transformed Newton into an ardent evangelist and anti-slavery activist.

Amazing Grace in John Newton : Slave-Ship Captain, Hymn Writer, and Abolitionist

In "Amazing Grace," the best-loved of all hymns, John Newton's allusions to the drama of his life tell the story of a youth who was a virtual slave in Sierra Leone before ironically becoming a slave trader himself. Liverpool, his home port, was the center of the most colossal, lucrative, and inhumane slave trade the world has ever known. A gradual spiritual awakening transformed Newton into an ardent evangelist and anti-slavery activist. Influenced by Methodists George Whitefield and John Wesley, Newton became prominent among those favoring a Methodist-style revival in the Church of England. This movement stressed personal conversion, simple worship, emotional enthusiasm, and social justice. While pastoring a poor flock in Olney, he and poet William Cowper produced a hymnal containing such perennial favorites as "Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken" and "God Moves in a Mysterious Way." Later, while serving a church in London, Newton raised British consciousness on the immorality of the slave trade. The account he gave to Parliament on the atrocities he had witnessed helped William Wilberforce obtain legislation to abolish the slave trade in England. Newton's life story convinced many who are "found" after being "lost" to sing Gospel hymns as they lobbied for civil rights legislation. His close involvement with both capitalism and evangelicalism, the main economic and religious forces of his era, provide a fascinating case study of the relationship of Christians to their social environment. In an afterword on Newtonian Christianity, Phipps explains Newton's critique of Karl Marx's thesis that religious ideals are always the effect of what produces the most profit. Phipps relies on accounts Newton gives in his ship journal, diary, letters, and sermons for this most readable scholarly narrative.
