After the apostles Peter and John had healed the lame man at the Gate Beautiful, the two disciples were arrested and later brought before the Sanhedrin to account for their deed, one that continued to stir the already anxious leaders of the Jews: “And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, “By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?” (Acts 4:7). Indeed, what was the source of their miracle? And by what power or authority did they perform it? The essays in this book address the central issue of such authority in the Christian life. Contributors include Peter A. Huff, Richard John Neuhaus, Bradley Nassif, Stephen D. Ricks, Gerald R. McDermott, Robert M. Randolph, Robert L. Millet, Steven C. Harper, George R. Knight, David Neff, and Roger E. Olson.

A Scandalous Providence: The Jesus Story of the Compassion of God: Revised and Updated

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.

The Invisible Hand in the Wilderness: Economics, Ecology, and God
Product Code: P489
ISBN: 9780881464870
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
Most environmental theologians focus their efforts on inspiring a love for the natural world. They seek out metaphors and images from the world’s scriptures to create an ethical revolution so that people will begin to passionately care for the earth. The problem with this approach is that most people already appreciate nature. However, the values that direct their lives at work and as consumers are more important to them. They are more likely to derive their sense of meaning and articulate their goals using the symbols and methodologies of economics. This book brings together insights from three fields: economics, ecology, and theology in order to construct a more healthy and productive picture of human wellbeing. Economic ideas have a theological history that needs to be addressed if we are to begin healing the world.

Is God a Christian? Creating a Community of Conversation
By author: R. Kirby Godsey
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P532
ISBN: 9780881465761
Availability: In stock
Price: $20.00
In a world composed of almost seven billion people, about 2.2 billion of them claim to be Christian. And while Christianity is continuing to grow at a modest rate, other religions are growing at a faster pace. Some scholars predict that Islam will overtake Christianity as the world’s largest religion by the middle of the twenty-first century. Predictions aside, religions are competing for the world stage, and in the competition, Christians seem certain that God is on their side. Christians often think and behave as though God is a Christian. This book is written to ask if that assumption is true and to foster a more open conversation about other world religions. The world has grown too small and the stakes for mankind have grown too high for any of us to engage our faith as if our understanding of God represents the only way God’s presence may be known in the world.
