Imagine someone who has spent a lifetime listening deeply and attentively to the full range of Scripture's testimony. Stepping back, they now describe what they have seen and heard. What emerges is a theological cathedral, laid out on the great vectors of Scripture and fitted with biblically sourced materials. This is what John Goldingay has done. Well known for his three-volumeOld Testament Theology, he has now risen to the challenge of a biblical theology. While taking the New Testament as a portal into the biblical canon, he seeks to preserve the distinct voices of Israel's Scriptures, accepting even its irregular and sinewed pieces as features rather than problems. Goldingay does not search out a thematic core or overarching unity, but allows Scripture's diversity and tensions to remain as manifold witnesses to the ways of God. While many interpreters interrogate Scripture under the harsh lights of late-modern questions, Goldingay engages in a dialogue keen on letting Scripture speak to us in its own voice. Throughout he asks, "What understanding of God and the world and life emerges from these two testaments?" Goldingay'sBiblical Theology is a landmark achievement--hermeneutically dexterous, biblically expansive, and nourishing to mind, soul and proclamation.

For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord?"€" Psalm 89:6

From the psalmist's assertion that no one in heaven or earth is like God, George Swinnock derives his principal doctrine"€"namely, God is incomparable. Throughout The Blessed and Boundless God, he proves his doctrine by demonstrating God's incomparableness in His being, attributes, works, and words. Swinnock is a pastor-theologian who views theology as the means by which we grow in acquaintance with God and, consequently, in godliness. Therefore, he carefully applies his doctrine by demonstrating how God's incomparableness informs, counsels, and comforts us. Read this book prayerfully, thoughtfully, and expectantly, keeping in mind Swinnock's simple conviction that "when we take the incomparable God as our God, we are incomparably blessed."

"Contrarian thinking at its best simply asks, "Is this really true"? It speaks up when the politically correct answer or the conventional wisdom doesn't match reality - when things simply don't work the way everyone says they should."

Marked by growing freedom and equality, today's families are also dogged by brokenness and loss of faith. And while the theology of marriage has developed remarkably under the impetus of the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II, the theology of the family remains in its infancy, only beginning to meet the challenges of contemporary society.
In Divine Likeness Marc Cardinal Ouellet points the way to a much-needed theology of the family grounded in the doctrine of the Trinity. Cardinal Ouellet understands family life to be a sacrament of Trinitarian communion, a crucial source for revealing and inspiring a new sense of God's presence in the faith community. This book will help theologians, pastors, and believers to develop fruitfully the legacy of Pope John Paul II, carrying forward the quest to let the Trinity and the family illuminate each other for the good of today's world.

Does God change his mind? How can God plan everything yet respond to our prayers? Does God transcend time? The debate over providence and divine foreknowledge, sparked by the openness of God movement, is the most controversial issue in evangelical circles today. This debate, which concerns the very heart of God's nature, has at times become heated. Does God Have a Future? counters this harsh dialogue by pairing Christopher Hall, who affirms the classical view, with John Sanders, one of the foremost proponents of the openness view.

For more than a year, Hall and Sanders engaged in a friendly yet probing exchange of e-mail correspondence responding to each other's questions and concerns about providence and foreknowledge. Throughout, the authors displayed their respect for each other while vigorously disagreeing about important issues. This book is a compilation of those letters, offering equal treatment to both classical and openness views without unfair caricatures.

A version of Does God Have a Future? appeared as a two-part Christianity Today article in 2001. All those interested in a serious, balanced presentation of the classical versus openness of God debate will appreciate this theologically sophisticated yet accessible book.

William Placher looks at "classical" Christian theology (Thomas Aquinas, John Calvin, Martin Luther) and contrasts it with the Christian discourse about God that evolved in the seventeenth century. In particular, he deals with the notion of transcendence that gained prominence in this era and its impact on modern theology and modern thinking today. He persuasively argues that useful lessons can be drawn from premodern thinking about God, especially when viewed within the context of contemporary objections to it. This reexamination, according to Placher, has practical and profound implications for modern theology.

God Never ChangesOr does he? God has been getting a makeover of late, a "reinvention" that has incited debate and troubled scholars and laypeople alike. Modern theological sectors as diverse as radical feminism and the new "open theism" movement are attacking the classical Christian view of God and vigorously promoting their own images of Divinity.God Under Fire refutes the claim that major attributes of the God of historic Christianity are false and outdated. This book responds to some increasingly popular alternate theologies and the ways in which they cast classical Christian theism in a negative light. Featuring an impressive cast of world-class biblical scholars, philosophers, and apologists, God Under Fire begins by addressing the question, "Should the God of Historic Christianity Be Replaced?" From there, it explores issues as old as time and as new as the inquest into the "openness of God." How, for instance, does God risk, relate, emote, and change? Does he do these things, and if so, why? These and other questions are investigated with clarity, bringing serious scholarship into popular reach.Above all, this collection of essays focuses on the nature of God as presented in the Scriptures and as Christians have believed for centuries. God Under Fire builds a solid and appealing case for the God of classical Christian theism, who in recent years--as through the centuries--has been the God under fire.

God Who Gives How the Trinity Shapes the Christian Story

Sale 50% off

Many Christians wonder what the Christian life is all about. They hear about "grace" but struggle to rightly understand it, much less live it. They are taught about God, but their vision of him does not always reflect the full biblical portrait of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When this happens Christians struggle to know the ways of God and how to joyfully participate in his work.

The God Who Gives provides a compelling vision of Christian faith and life, helping readers discover the uniqueness of the gospel - that God's kingdom comes not by taking, but by giving - God gives Himself! We are invited into the fullness of life that can only come through the gift of God's divine generosity.

Taking readers through the grand biblical narrative of creation, fall, redemption, and kingdom author Kelly M. Kapic helps us see our story in and through the story of Scripture. He shows that everything belongs to God, and yet because of our turning and taking from him we experience a kind of suffocating bondage to sin. So how does God reclaim us? God gives again. The God who gave in creation restores by recreating us through his Son and by his Spirit. The kingdom of God is an overflowing measure of divine generosity that we are invited to participate in.

The God Who Gives calls readers to discover that the whole Christian story is founded upon the Triune God's self-giving and our belonging to God. Fully embracing this truth changes how we view God, ourselves, and the world. Living in God's gifts, we are freed to give ourselves and truly experience life.

Sale 20% off

The revelation of the Trinity establishes that the relationship of the one true God with us springs from the relationship within himself, without us. The Trinity is not a problem to be solved, but a beauty to be discovered. Dr Imad N. Shehadeh uses careful exegetical and theological analysis to explore the presentation of the triune God in Scripture and expertly navigate the reader through the errors and pitfalls regarding the Trinity.

This book explains the essential role that the perfect truth of a three-in-one God plays in being able to know God and be sure of his character. Dr Shehadeh doesn't fear to tread on controversial ground but instead addresses key issues in theology, the study of God, such as the logic of the Trinity, and whether the God of the Bible is the same as the god of other religions. This first of two volumes, is a valuable contribution to the theological academy but also is an accessible guide for anyone to encounter the perfect, holy, triune, God.
