The Authority of the Bible in Christianity

Author: John Barton

Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press

Category: Religion

Page: 96

View: 6639

In this book, John Barton offers a positive but critical evaluation of biblical authority. Among other topics, he discusses the canon, the value of the Bible as historical evidence, the Bible's witness to the faith, and the place of Scripture in worship. He shows Christians that critical reading of Scripture is a help rather than a hindrance to their faith and affirms that they are not required to chose between fundamentalism and unbelief.

What Is Faith?

In this classic treatise, first published in 1925, J. Gresham Machen explores biblical answers to this pivotal question.Lamenting the "false and disastrous opposition which has been set up between knowledge and faith" and continuing what was his longrunning polemic against liberalism, Machen speaks out against halfhearted, watered-down attempts at faith that seek to engage the heart and the soul yet disregard the mind. He illuminates the Bible's teaching on the foundational tenets of Christian faith, clearly demonstrating that it is knowledge - the intellectual pursuit and embrace of God the Father and Jesus Christ as revealed in Scripture - that forms the foundation of all true belief.

Defending the Faith

J. Gresham Machen and the Crisis of Conservative Protestantism in Modern America

Author: Darryl G. Hart

J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937), writes D. G. Hart, was the scion of a prominent and genteel Baltimore family, who studied at the finest American and European universities and, while teaching at Princeton Seminary, went on to become one of the United States's leading authorities in New Testament studies. Defending the Faith explains how a privileged and learned Protestant became embroiled in the religious disputes of the 1920s, writes Hart. This study, he continues, has much to tell us not just about the issues that unsettled--some would say unseated--mainstream Protestantism's hold on American intellectual and cultural life. But it also offers a distinctive and revealing perspective on the way we have come to assess and locate religion, science, and modernity in the early twentieth century. This biography, the first of Machen since 1955, originally appeared in 1994.

Can the church regain its cultural influence? The church in America is losing ground. Unfortunately, our efforts to reverse this trend often seem to do more harm than good. In Joy for the World, Greg Forster explains how the church lost its culture-shaping voice and what Christians can do to turn things around. This book teaches us that the key to cultural transformation is something that we might not expect: explosive, Spirit-produced joy in God and his gospel.

Christianity and Culture

Author: T. S. Eliot

Publisher: HMH

ISBN: 0547538081

Category: Religion

Page: 216

View: 380

One of our most prized writers takes a poignant look at the powerful influences of religion and culture in the Western world in these two penetrating essays. The first, The Idea of a Christian Society, examines the undeniable link between religion, politics, and economy, suggesting that a real Christian society requires a direct criticism of political and economic systems. And in Notes towards the Definition of Culture, Eliot sets out to discover the true definition of “culture,” a word whose misuse and ambiguity presents a danger to the legacy of the Western world. Intellectually, Eliot was years ahead of his time, and these essays are an invaluable tool for analyzing and understanding the nature of society today.

Anti-liberal Europe

A Neglected Story of Europeanization

Author: Dieter Gosewinkel

Publisher: Berghahn Books

ISBN: 1782384251

Category: History

Page: 210

View: 5352

The history of modern Europe is often presented with the hindsight of present-day European integration, which was a genuinely liberal project based on political and economic freedom. Many other visions for Europe developed in the 20th century, however, were based on an idea of community rooted in pre-modern religious ideas, cultural or ethnic homogeneity, or even in coercion and violence. They frequently rejected the idea of modernity or reinterpreted it in an antiliberal manner. Anti-liberal Europe examines these visions, including those of anti-modernist Catholics, conservatives, extreme rightists as well as communists, arguing that antiliberal concepts in 20th-century Europe were not the counterpart to, but instead part of the process of European integration.

Liberal Christianity and Women's Global Activism

The YWCA of the USA and the Maryknoll Sisters

Author: Amanda Izzo

Publisher: Rutgers University Press

Religiously influenced social movements tend to be characterized as products of the conservative turn in Protestant and Catholic life in the latter part of the twentieth century, with women's mobilizations centering on defense of the “traditional” family. In Liberal Christianity and Women’s Global Activism, Amanda L. Izzo argues that, contrary to this view, liberal wings of Christian churches have remained an instrumental presence in U.S. and transnational politics. Women have been at the forefront of such efforts. Focusing on the histories of two highly influential groups, the Young Women’s Christian Association of the USA, an interdenominational Protestant organization, and the Maryknoll Sisters, a Roman Catholic religious order, Izzo offers new perspectives on the contributions of these women to transnational social movements, women’s history, and religious studies, as she traces the connections between turn-of-the-century Christian women’s reform culture and liberal and left-wing religious social movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Izzo suggests that shared ethical, theological, and institutional underpinnings can transcend denominational divides, and that strategies for social change often associated with secular feminism have ties to spiritually inspired social movements.
