Fortress Introduction to the Prophets

Rodney Hutton begins this book by asking five basic questions about Israelite prophecy and the prophetic books. Do the prophetic books witness to a real phenomenon of "prophecy" in Israel? What is the relationship of the "classical" or "writing" prophets to the "pre-classical prophets"? Where do we look for the origins of Israelite prophecy? How do the prophets relate to their culture and society? How does the prophetic collection of writings relate to the legal and historical traditions of Israel? Through literary, social, and theological analysis, the author then introduces the most noted of the Hebrew prophets, including Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, and Micah, with special attention to Jeremiah. --From publisher's description.

What Is African American Religion?

Sketching the religious landscape of African American communities today, the volume makes explicit the tension in traditional conversations about black religion that privilege either Christianity in particular or simply organizations (with doctrines and creeds) in general. Discussing the misunderstandings and historical inaccuracies of such views, Pinn offers an alternate theory of black religion that begins with a basic push for embodied meaning as its core impulse.

Issues in Contemporary Christian Thought

Olson's clear and concise overview roots contemporary questions firmly in Christian responses to the Enlightenment. He discusses the range of contemporary opinions, their rationales, and what's at stake. Olson illustrates these alternate frameworks as they play out in central concerns over the being of God in relation to the universe, how to understand the figure of Christ today, and the distinctively new notions of being human. Specifically geared to the novice theologue in college or seminary settings, Olson's text includes Reflection/Research Questions, Suggestions for Further Reading, and a Glossary.

Earth-honoring Faith

Grand Winner of the 2014 Nautilus Book Awards Thoughtful observers agree that the planetary crisis we now face-climate change; species extinction; the destruction of entire ecosystems; the urgent need for a more just economic-political order-is pushing human civilization to a radical turning point: change or perish. But precisely how to change remains an open question. In Earth-honoring Faith, Larry Rasmussen answers that question with a dramatically new way of thinking about human society, ethics, and the ongoing health of our planet. Rejecting the modern assumption that morality applies to human society alone, Rasmussen insists that we must derive a spiritual and ecological ethic that acco...

The SCM Studyguide: Liturgy, 2nd Edition is an introduction to liturgy that considers the basic 'buliding blocks' needed to grasp the subject area.

This 2nd edition of the popular Studyguide is fully revised, updated and expanded. The book takes account of new developments in scholarship, engages with new contexts for liturgical celebration (notably, fresh expressions as part of a mixed economy of church), encompasses recent revisions in liturgy and seeks to broaden the engagement beyond the British context to consider the wider global context.

Paul and Isaiah's Servants

Paul's reading of the Old Testament continues to witness to the significance of reading the Old Testament in a Christian way. This study argues that a theological approach to understanding Paul's appeal to and reading of the Old Testament, especially Isaiah, offers important insights into the ways in which Christians should read the Old Testament and a two-testament canon today. By way of example, this study explores the ways in which Isaiah 40-66's canonical form presents the gospel in miniature with its movement from Israel to Servant to servants. It is subsequently argued that Paul follows this literary movement in his own theological reflection in 2 Corinthians 5:14-6:10. Jesus takes on ...
