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.

" 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."

We live in a fractured world. Deep cleavages divide into competing camps those who could helpfully enrich and balance each other. As hostilities deepen, collaboration becomes impossible. Impasses develop that thwart any hope of progress. We lament destructive polarization in the political process, but the same kind of fragmentation has compromised the unity of most Christian denominations. When a rupture occurs, each side spends more time and energy attacking the other side than they do combating the true enemies of the faith.

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.

With a few notable exceptions (particularly some strands of the theology of the Black church), the dominant strands of theology in America have been indebted to Continental European social and intellectual suppositions. American religion needs a theological model with which to be more effectively put in touch with the core suppositions of American society. in A Common Sense Theology, mark Ellingsen demonstrates how one of the emerging theologies of our time can provide such a truly American theology. Mark Ellingsen, who has taught at Luther-Northwestern Seminaries and at the Institute for Ecumenical research in Strasbourg (France), is now (sense 1993) at that Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta. he is the author of numerous articles and papers and of six books, including The Integrity of Biblical Narrative and Cutting Edge Issues in Global Society: What Are the Churches Saying?
