Locating US Theological Education In a Global Context by Hendrik R. Pieterse Summary

CONTRIBUTORS: E. Byron Anderson, K. K. Yeo, Margaret Eletta Guider, OSF, Lester Edwin J. Ruiz, Brent Waters, Namsoon Kang, Luis R. Rivera, and David Esterline. Theological education in the United States finds itself in untested circumstances today. Rapid social change is creating an increasing multicultural, multiracial, and multireligious context for leadership formation. At the same time, international enrollment, cross-border educational initiatives, student and faculty exchanges, and more are connecting US theological schools with a global community of Christian teaching and learning. How do US theological institutions "locate" themselves within this global ecology of theological formation so as to be both responsible participants and creative shapers within it? That is, how do they discern their proper place and role? It is questions like these that the contributors to this volume explore. Building on the decades-long discussion about the globalization of US theological education, this book argues that, in engaging such questions, US theological institutions have much to gain from a sustained conversation with the burgeoning literature on the internationalization of American higher education. This research offers theological institutions a trove of insights and cautionary tales as they seek to discern their rightful place and role in educating leaders in and for a global Christian church.

Christian Faith, Formation and Education by Ros Stuart-Buttle,John Shortt Summary

This book discusses the relationship between faith, formation and education. Rooted in a variety of discourses, the book offers original insights into the education and formation of the human person, both theoretical and practical. Issues are considered within a context of contemporary tensions generated by an increasingly pluralist society with antipathy to religious faith, and debated from interdenominational Christian perspectives. Including chapters by an international team of experts, the volume demonstrates how Christian faith holds significance for educational practice and human development. It argues against the common assumption that there can be a neutral approach to education, whilst at the same time advocating a critical dimension to faith education. It brings fresh thinking about faith and formation, which demands attention given the fast-changing political, educational and socio-cultural forces of today. It will appeal to students and researchers involved in Christian educational practice.

Amt, Ordination, Episkopé und theologische Ausbildung / Ministry, ordination, episkopé and theological education by Mario Fischer,Martin Friedrich Summary

Dieser Band dokumentiert drei Arbeitsergebnisse der GEKE, die von den Vollversammlungen 2012 und 2018 angenommen wurden. Der Lehrgesprächstext "Amt, Ordination, Episkope" bestimmt die evangelische Position zu diesen ökumenisch besonders brisanten Themen und will damit zugleich die Gemeinschaft der Kirchen der GEKE vertiefen. Diesem Ziel dienen auch die Studien "Die Ausbildung für das ordinationsgebundene Amt" und "Fortbildung für das ordinationsgebundene Amt". Sie skizzieren ein gemeinsames Verständnis von guter Ausbildung bzw. Fort- und Weiterbildung, das für die Mitgliedskirchen jeweils orientierend wirken kann. This volume documents three sets of findings by the CPCE which were accepted by the 2012 and 2018 General Assemblies. The report of the doctrinal conversation on "Ministry, Ordination, Episkope" defines the Protestant position on these issues, which are of vital ecumenical interest. At the same time, it seeks to deepen the church communion of CPCE member churches. This is also the aim of the studies "Training for the ordained ministry in the CPCE" and "Continuing education for the ordained ministry in the CPCE". They outline a common understanding of good training that the member churches can take as a guideline.

La Sainte Bible by Louis Segond Summary

Louis Segond, est un pasteur protestant et théologien qui, à la demande de la Compagnie des Pasteurs de Genève, a traduit la Bible en français à partir des textes originaux hébreux et grecs, la traduction Segond. La traduction de l'Ancien Testament a été publiée par étape et s'est échelonnée sur une dizaine d'années, le recueil complet est paru en 1873. C'est en 1880 que le Nouveau Testament complet voit le jour. Louis Segond ne voulait pas que de son vivant on touche à sa traduction, mais il avait fait savoir qu'après son décès, les éditeurs pourraient faire ce qu'ils voudraient. C'est donc après sa mort, en 1909, qu'une révision de son travail a été envisagée, ce qui a abouti à la version de 1910. Extrait : Dieu dit : Que la lumière soit ! Et la lumière fut. Dieu vit que la lumière était bonne ; et Dieu sépara la lumière d'avec les ténèbres. Dieu appela la lumière jour, et il appela les ténèbres nuit. Ainsi, il y eut un soir, et il y eut un matin : ce fut le premier jour. Dieu dit : Qu'il y ait une étendue entre les eaux, et qu'elle sépare les eaux d'avec les eaux. Et Dieu fit l'étendue, et il sépara les eaux qui sont au-dessous de l'étendue d'avec les eaux qui sont au-dessus de l'étendue. Et cela fut ainsi. Dieu appela l'étendue ciel. Ainsi, il y eut un soir, et il y eut un matin : ce fut le second jour.

African Theocology by Ebenezer Yaw Blasu Summary

There is probably no set of issues of greater importance in the contemporary world than those that are to do with the Earth on which we live and depend. The more alienated we become from it the more we contribute to our own destruction. Christianity's complicity in this destruction is well-documented and hotly debated. Africa can ill afford to fall into the same trap that Western Christianity has in this regard. One senses the urgency of these concerns in Blasu's African Theocology: Studies in African Religious Creation Care. Extremely well-informed in the field, Blasu not only draws on the three major religions in Africa--Christianity, Islam, and African traditional religion--but demonstrates familiarity with the most important recent contributions in the field from Western scholarship. With its emphasis on pedagogics, African Theocology will play a seminal role in the construction of curricula for an African Christian theology of the environment and is sure to be an essential contribution to all libraries in institutions of higher learning.

Humanae Vitae by Paul Vi Summary

L'encyclique Humanae vitae est peut-être celle qui a fait couler le plus d'encre au cours du 20ème siècle, et a rencontré le plus d'opposition. Autant le monde catholique est globalement d'accord avec l'Eglise lorsque celle-ci rappelle la doctrine du Christ sur l'euthanasie, ou sur la vie en société, autant le thème de la régulation des naissances a été, et reste encore, controversé. L'on sait que Paul VI a longuement étudié la question avant de promouvoir cette encyclique, comme il le rappelle au début. Pour lui, il ne s'agit pas d'un "point de vue", mais bien de la continuité de l'enseignement de l'Eglise. De fait, lorsque l'on lit le texte, on se rend compte de la logique avec lequel il a été écrit. Paul VI explique comment il a consulté le collège des évêques, les spécialistes, y compris des couples. Il sait que la question est difficile, que les opinions sont contraires, et après avoir entendu tout le monde, il décide de la promulgation de ce texte. L'encyclique est simple à lire, et toujours d'actualité.

Team Leadership In Christian Ministry by Kenneth O. Gangel Summary

'Team leadership is the exercise of one's spiritual gifts under the call of God to serve a certain group of people in achieving the goals God has given them toward the end of glorifying Christ.'How is your church or organization governed? Does it have an authoritarian, top-down administration? Is the ministry vision developed by a few top officials, with little input from staff or volunteers? Today the definition of an effective leader has changed. No longer does the model leader manage like the Lone Ranger - either do it his way or no way. Today the model leader shares responsibility with fellow team leaders and seeks to serve them. In this complete revision of his earlier work, Building Leaders for Church Education, Dr. Gangel carefully lays a biblical foundation for the team leadership model. This leadership is not dogmatic control or personality worship. It has no room for political power plays. Instead, it is Paul gently nurturing young Christians in his epistles. It is Barnabas willingly thrusting others into situations where they develop their own gifts. It is Christ, choosing not one, but twelve men to carry on His ministry. It is servant leadership. With examples, illustrations, and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter, Dr. Gangel prods and encourages the reader to move beyond the safety net of autocratic leadership into the rewarding, effective practice of leading with and through others.

Embryo Politics by Thomas Banchoff Summary

Since the first fertilization of a human egg in the laboratory in 1968, scientific and technological breakthroughs have raised ethical dilemmas and generated policy controversies on both sides of the Atlantic. Embryo, stem cell, and cloning research have provoked impassioned political debate about their religious, moral, legal, and practical implications. National governments make rules that govern the creation, destruction, and use of embryos in the laboratory—but they do so in profoundly different ways. In Embryo Politics, Thomas Banchoff provides a comprehensive overview of political struggles about embryo research during four decades in four countries—the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. Banchoff’s book, the first of its kind, demonstrates the impact of particular national histories and institutions on very different patterns of national governance. Over time, he argues, partisan debate and religious-secular polarization have come to overshadow ethical reflection and political deliberation on the moral status of the embryo and the promise of biomedical research. Only by recovering a robust and public ethical debate will we be able to govern revolutionary life-science technologies effectively and responsibly into the future.

Divine Truth or Human Tradition? by Patrick Navas Summary

In Divine Truth or Human Tradition? the author critically examines the viewpoints and Scripture expositions of prominent evangelical scholars and apologists—including Dr. James R. White (author of The Forgotten Trinity), Dr. John MacArthur (President of The Master?s Seminary), Wayne Grudem (author of the widely-read Systematic Theology), Robert Morey (author of The Trinity, Evidence and Issues), Robert L. Reymond (author of A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith), and others... According to what has long been considered mainstream Christian “orthodoxy,” the doctrine of the Trinity (the idea that the one God of the Bible is a singular being made up of three coequal and coeternal „persons?) is not only central to the Christian faith, but even necessary for one to accept in order to be counted as a true Christian and be saved. Such a demand on a Christian?s faith has come across as strange and perplexing to many, especially so in light of the fact pointed out by one respected Trinitarian: “[The Trinity] is not clearly or explicitly taught anywhere in Scripture, yet it is widely regarded as a central doctrine, indispensable to the Christian faith. In this regard, it goes contrary to what is virtually an axiom [that is, a given, a self-evident truth] of biblical doctrine, namely, that there is a direct correlation between the scriptural clarity of a doctrine and its cruciality to the faith and life of the church.” (Millard J. Erickson, God in Three Persons, p. 11. Emphasis added) Understandably, this fact has raised questions in the minds of Christians and truth-seekers alike ever since the doctrine was first articulated in the late 4th century. Many Christians have wondered: How can a doctrine that is not clearly or explicitly taught in the Bible be necessary to accept in order to be a true practitioner of the Christian faith?

Religion after Secularization in Australia by Timothy Stanley Summary

Religion's persistent and new visibility in political life has prompted a significant global debate. One of this debate's key features concerns the nature and impact of secularization. This collection of essays draws together leading sociologists, historians, philosophers of religion, and political theorists in order to provide a broad and up-to-date account of religion after secularization. Contributors explore the meaning and conceptual legacies of religion, as well as the unique features of the Australian case such as religion as it relates to law, education, gender, media, and radical political movements. Intervening in the current debate, this book provides summative accounts of the historical, cultural, and legal interactions that have informed Australia’s relationship to religion and secularization. Contributors critically analyze and engage with secular political theory concerning the public sphere, while also dissecting deliberative politics and democratic practices. This book propels the debate over religion’s place in public life in new directions and promotes urgently needed public understanding.

A Survey of the Old Testament by Andrew E. Hill,John H. Walton Summary

This innovative textbook at long last provides an Old Testament survey for undergraduate students that goes beyond basic content. The book attempts to balance the literary, historical, and theological issues pertaining to each individual book and to the Old Testament as a whole. The main portion of the survey treats each book of the Old Testament in the order of the English canon. This information does not simply rehash the biblical material, but assumes that the Scriptures are being read alongside the survey. The book focuses its primary attention on the purpose and message of each book and attempts to show how the literary structure of each one has been used to accomplish the author's purpose. The survey also introduces readers to the issues of hermeneutics (general and special), history (Israelite and Near Eastern), archaeology, canon, geography, Old Testament theology (biblical and systematic), and critical methodologies. All these issues are dealt with in separate chapters at a basic introductory level that never allows the reader to lose sight, as it were, of the forest while wandering through the trees. In addressing critical issues of date and authorship, the survey avoids a polemical stance. Hill and Watson seek to depend on the evidence of the text rather than on presuppositions to substantiate their views. Their commitment to the authority of the biblical text results in a book that, while notably evangelical, is not always traditional. The authors approach the survey mindful of two complicating factors in Old Testament study. First, God's revelation did not come by way of the English language or through Western culture, and therefore we today have to work carefully to receive the message clearly. Second, even when we are listening, we have a tendency to be selective about what we hear or to try to make the message conform to our ideas. The solution is to allow the Bible to speak for itself. The informed reader will find much innovation here and a keen awareness of current scholarship relating to the Old Testament. Above all, this textbook will bring a new vigor and excitement to the Old Testament as readers learn to discover its story for themselves and see how to understand it as a substantial part of God's self-revelation to humankind. This survey is well illustrated with maps, charts, and photographs. Additional features are the questions for study and the annotated reading list at the end of each chapter.
