JOHN NEWTON & THE ENGLISH EVANGELICAL TR

Dr Hindmarsh draws upon extensive archival and antiquarian sources to provide a serious, scholarly consideration of the life and religious thought of John Newton (1725-1807). In addition, he uses the theme of Newton as a 'sort of middle man' to explore the religious understanding of a whole generation who knew themselves as 'evangelical' although this was different from those who later adopted the term as a badge of partisan loyalty. The author shows how Newton is related to other Church of England evangelicals, Methodists, and various Dissenting bodies, and how his life sheds light on little explored aspects of the Evangelical Revival which contribute to an understanding and reassessment of the eighteenth-century church. In addition to discussion of themes in historical theology, pastoralia, and spirituality, an analysis of conversion narrative, the familiar letter, and hymnody contribute to an understanding of the relationship between religion and culture more generally.

Sale 20% off

This witty and illuminating volume introduces the life and writings of the great American theologian and preacher Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758). The most widely studied figure in American religious history and an iconic figure of the American colonial period, Edwards is well known and highly regarded as a stalwart defender of Calvinist theology and his Puritan heritage. As James P. Byrd deftly reveals, however, Edwards was also a brilliant thinker and passionate pastor who wrestled continuously with the most important issue of his time: the relationship between faith and reason.

Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history. These books are essential supplements for first-time encounters with primary texts, lucid refreshers for scholars and clergy, and enjoyable reads for the theologically curious.

KARL BARTH MAKERS OF THE MODERN THEOLOGICAL MIND

Karl Barth (1886-1968) is perhaps the most influential Protestant theologian of the twentieth century. He has been called a modern "church father," who belongs in the list of the most illustrious theologians in the history of Christianity. The whole course of modern theology changed direction because of his work. His Epistle to the Romans "fell like a bomb on the playground of the theologians." This is Karl Barth, who dominates the theology of the twentieth century. Even his opponents must establish their positions with respect to his. Although this book is a brief survey of the life and thought of Barth, Dr. Mueller does an excellent job of confronting us with Barth himself. His theological development, the central convictions that dominate his work, his major concerns, his creative treatment of difficult areas - these are amply discussed and illustrated. Primary emphasis is given to Barth's treatment of the doctrine of revelation and the knowledge of God. Mueller also discusses Barth's christocentric approach to theology, especially as it is seen in the doctrines of election, creation, man, and reconciliation.


About the Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series: Who are the thinkers that have shaped Christian theology in our time? This series tries to answer that question by providing a reliable guide to the ideas of the men who have significantly charted the theological seas of our century. Each major theologian is examined carefully and critically--his life, his theological method, his most germinal ideas, his weaknesses as a thinker, his place in the theological spectrum, and his chief contribution to the climate of theology today. Welcome to the series.

"I do not hope to convince you so that you will believe," says Justo González to open this brief book on the basics of Christianity. "That is to be left to the Holy Spirit. I write to you because you share the faith by which I live. I write so that you may share my joy in seeking to understand better this truth that our hearts believe and love."

In Knowing Our Faith González introduces the Christian faith in direct, contemporary language that does not assume prior knowledge. While recognizing the existence of various denomi-nations and theological positions, González focuses on the core faith of the Christian church through the centuries. Covering all the key topics--revelation, God, Jesus Christ, the Spirit, the church, Christian hope, and others--Knowing Our Faith will help readers to understand the Christian faith better--and, above all, to live it better.
