On Naming the Present (Paperback): David Tracy On Naming the Present (Paperback)

Arguably the most respected Catholic systematic theologian in the English-speaking world, David Tracy's growing influence internationally and on persons of other Christian traditions and his ability to communicate with representatives of the secular academy stem from the unique quality of his voice. Still, Tracy's views on Catholicism, the mission of the church, and how plurality of worldviews and hermeneutics affect the church mission are largely unknown. Containing both new material and articles written over the past decade for Concilium, the international journal of progressive Catholic theology, these essays reveal dimensions of Tracy's thought on these topics foreshadowed in his books and philosophical theological reflections. In addition, On Naming the Present shows the best of the spirit of Concilium and its project of fostering a critical and prophetic yet world-welcoming Christian future rooted in a troubled present.

Whence and Whither - On Lives and Living (Paperback): Thomas Lynch Whence and Whither - On Lives and Living (Paperback)
Thomas Lynch
R424 R345 Discovery Miles 3 450 Save R79 (19%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

From one of our most gifted writers and thinkers about death and the meaning of living comes a collection of writings about what comes next. Thomas Lynch, funeral director, poet, and author of the National Book Award finalist The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade, has an uncanny knack for writing about death in ways that are never morbid, always thoughtful, often humorous, and quite moving. From his account of riding in the hearse at the funeral of poet laureate Seamus Heaney, to his recounting of the funeral for a young child in the 1800s, to his compelling essay about his own mortality, Lynch always finds ways to make sense of senseless things, as he ponders what will come next.

Jesus and the Other Names - Christian Mission and Global Responsibility (Paperback): Paul F. Knitter Jesus and the Other Names - Christian Mission and Global Responsibility (Paperback)
Paul F. Knitter; Foreword by Harvey G. Cox
R558 R509 Discovery Miles 5 090 Save R49 (9%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

"What are Christians to make of their mission in an pluralistic world?" asks Paul F. Knitter, author of the landmark work in interfaith dialogue No Other Name? As a recognized scholar and participant in interfaith dialogue, Knitter is in a unique position to explore the key concept of what Christian mission must entail in a world that will remain a world of many religious faiths for the foreseeable future. From the first chapter of Jesus and the Other Names, which recounts his own theological and dialogical odyssey, Knitter constructs what he calls a "correlational, globally-responsible theology of religions" as a necessary correction to traditional pluralist and exclusivist approaches. By anticipating and addressing his critics - both conservative and liberal - Knitter makes a powerful argument for a reconstruction of mission faithful to the Christian imperative and dynamically attuned to the plurality of the world. Jesus and the Other Names will give pause to those who believe Christian mission can be carried on as it was in the modern era. Sure to inspire debate as well as dialogue it offers a more humble, but perhaps more "Christic", postmodern approach to mission in the new millennium that has little to do with earthly glory and nothing to do with the sense of cultural superiority that has so often - and often so tragicallyaccompanied modern missionary movements. Theologians, missiologists, Christian historians, can all benefit from its thoughtful and timely message.

Justice, mercy, and the public good all find meaning in relationshipaa relationship dependent upon fidelity, but endlessly open to the betrayals of infidelity. This paradox defines the story of God and Israel in the Old Testament. Yet the arc of this story reaches ever forward, and its trajectory confers meaning upon human relationships and communities in the present. The Old Testament still speaks. Israel, in the Old Testament, bears witness to a God who initiates and then sustains covenantal relationships. God, in mercy, does so by making promises for a just well-being and prescribing stipulations for the covenant partner's obedience. The nature of the relationship itself decisively depends upon the conduct, practice, and policy of the covenant partner, yet is radically rooted in the character and agency of Godathe One who makes promises, initiates covenant, and sustains relationship. This reflexive, asymmetrical relationship, kept alive in the texts and tradition, now fires contemporary imagination. Justice becomes shaped by the practice of neighborliness, mercy reaches beyond a pervasive quid pro quo calculus, and law becomes a dynamic norming of the community. The well-being of the neighborhood, inspired by the biblical texts, makes possibleaand even insists uponaan alternative to the ideology of individualism that governs our society's practice and policy. This kind of community life returns us to the arc of God's giftsamercy, justice, and law. The covenant of God in the witness of biblical faith speaks now and demands that its interpreting community resist individualism, overcome commoditization, and thwart the rule of empire through a life of radical neighbor love.

Gandhi is widely revered as one of the great moral prophets of the twentieth century. This book focuses on a less well-known area of his interest: his engagement with Jesus and Christianity. As a faithful Hindu, he was unwilling to accept Christian dogma, but in Jesus he recognized and revered one of history's great prophets of nonviolence.

On Human Nature (Paperback): Thomas Aquinas On Human Nature (Paperback)
Thomas Aquinas; Edited by Thomas S. Hibbs
R440 R374 Discovery Miles 3 740 Save R66 (15%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This volume begins with excerpts from Aquinas' commentary on De Anima, excerpts that proceed from a general consideration of soul as common to all living things to a consideration of the animal soul and, finally, to what is peculiar to the human soul. These are followed by the Treatise on Man, Aquinas' most famous discussion of human nature, but one whose organization is dictated by theological concerns and whose philosophical importance is thus best appreciated when seen as presented here: within the historical philosophical framework of which it constitutes a development. Aquinas' discussions of the will and the passions follow, providing fruitful points of comparison with other philosophers.
