Anthony C. Thiselton
R484 Discovery Miles 4 840 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Encountering philosophy of religion for the first time, we are like explorers arriving on an uncharted coastline. There are inviting bays and beaches, but rocky reefs and pounding surf as well. And what tribes may inhabit the land is anyone's guess. But our cautious intrigue turns to confidence as Anthony Thiselton greets us as a native informant. Cheerfully imparting insider knowledge, mapping the major landmarks, and outlining the main figures and issues in its tribal debates, he teaches us the basics for gaining cultural fluency on these foreign shores. Approaching Philosophy of Religion is divided into three parts: Part I (Approaches) provides descriptions of the main entrance ramps to studying the subject, with lively case histories, working examples, and assessments of their lasting value. Part II (Concepts and Issues) gives us brief introductions to the origins and development of ideas, and highlights their significance in the work of major thinkers. Part III (Key Terms) supplies concise explanations of all the words and phrases that readers need to know in order to engage the subject. For students and anyone else reading and engaging philosophy of religion for the first time, Approaching Philosophy of Religion is the essential companion.

God: An Anatomy (Hardcover): Francesca Stavrakopoulou God: An Anatomy (Hardcover)
Francesca Stavrakopoulou
R558 Discovery Miles 5 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Beautifully written, passionately argued and frequently controversial, God: An Anatomy is cultural history on a grand scale. Three thousand years ago, in the Southwest Asian lands we now call Israel and Palestine, a group of people worshipped a complex pantheon of deities, led by a father god called El. El had seventy children, who were gods in their own right. One of them was a minor storm deity, known as Yahweh. Yahweh had a body, a wife, offspring and colleagues. He fought monsters and mortals. He gorged on food and wine, wrote books, and took walks and naps. But he would become something far larger and far more abstract: the God of the great monotheistic religions. But as Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou reveals, God's cultural DNA stretches back centuries before the Bible was written, and persists in the tics and twitches of our own society, whether we are believers or not. The Bible has shaped our ideas about God and religion, but also our cultural preferences about human existence and experience; our concept of life and death; our attitude to sex and gender; our habits of eating and drinking; our understanding of history. Examining God's body, from his head to his hands, feet and genitals, she shows how the Western idea of God developed. She explores the places and artefacts that shaped our view of this singular God and the ancient religions and societies of the biblical world. And in doing so she analyses not only the origins of our oldest monotheistic religions, but also the origins of Western culture.

Fear and Trembling - A New Translation (Hardcover): Soren Kierkegaard Fear and Trembling - A New Translation (Hardcover)
Soren Kierkegaard; Translated by Bruce H. Kirmmse; Introduction by Bruce H. Kirmmse
R551 R457 Discovery Miles 4 570 Save R94 (17%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

First published in 1843 under the pseudonym "Johannes de silentio" (John of Silence), Soren Kierkegaard's richly resonant Fear and Trembling has for generations stood as a pivotal text in the history of moral philosophy, inspiring such artistic and philosophical luminaries as Edvard Munch, W.H. Auden, Walter Benjamin and existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre. Retelling the biblical story of the binding of Isaac, Kierkegaard expounds on the ordeal of Abraham, who was commanded to sacrifice his son in an exceptional test of faith. Disgusted at the self-certainty of his own age, Kierkegaard investigates the paradox underlying Abraham's decision to allow his duty to God to take precedence over his duties to his family. Now, in a new era of immense uncertainty and dislocation, renowned Kierkegaard scholar Bruce H. Kirmmse, in his accessible translation and engaging introduction, eloquently brings this classic work to a new generation of readers, demonstrating Kierkegaard's enduring power to illuminate the terrible wonder of faith.

Science Fiction Theology - Beauty and the Transformation of the Sublime (Hardcover): Alan P. R Gregory Science Fiction Theology - Beauty and the Transformation of the Sublime (Hardcover)
Alan P. R Gregory
R1,522 Discovery Miles 15 220 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Science fiction imagines a universe teeming with life and thrilling possibility, but also hidden and hideous dangers. Christian theology, often a polemical target for science fiction, reflects on the plenitude out of which and for which the universe exists. In Science Fiction Theology , Alan Gregory investigates the troubled relationship between science fiction and Christianity and, in particular, how both have laid claim to the modern idea of sublimity. To the extent that science fiction has appropriatedaand reveledain the sublime, it has persisted in a sometimes explicit, sometimes subterranean, relationship with Christian theology. From its seventeenth-century beginnings, the sublime, with its representations of immensity, has informed the imagining of God. When science fiction critiques or reinvents religion, its writers have engaged in a literary guerrilla war with Christianity over what is truly sublime and divine. Gregory examines the sublime and its implicit theologies as they appear in early American pulp science fiction, the horror writing of H. P. Lovecraft, science fiction narratives of evolution and apocalypse, and the work of Philip K. Dick. Ironically, science fiction's tussle with Christianity hides the extent to which the sublime, especially in popular culture, serves to distort the classical Christian understanding of God, secularizing that God and rendering God's transcendence finite. But by turning from the sublime to a consideration of the beautiful, Gregory shows that both Christian and science-fictional imaginations may discover a new and surprising conversation.

The voice that spoke the cosmos into existence is the same voice that parted the Red sea, and made the sun stand still in the midday sky. One day, this voice will make all things new, but it’s also speaking to you now!

That voice is God’s voice, and what we’ve learned from Scripture is that He often speaks in a whisper. Not to make it difficult to hear Him, but to draw us close.

God Must Be Crazy (Paperback): Arthur Dunkley God Must Be Crazy (Paperback)

R209 Discovery Miles 2 090 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

"?" Is the evolutionary achievement of a dominant intelligence the inevitable precursor to species self destruction? Is this why we are the only member of the genus Homo left on Earth? Is this why, despite our efforts, we have not contacted alien intelligence? This is a book of essay meditations about humankind - a 'Naked Ape' who is still in the process of evolving but is also now having to deal with the problems which arise out of his very recently acquired intelligence. This seems dangerously difficult for him. The world now has developed a very real and immensely complicated and dangerous technological envirnonment which is rapidly replacing his old, natural environment - with, very possibly, disastrous consequences. Human psychology has not kept up with his technology and humankind is having great difficulty in adjusting safely to a now frightening achievement of global domination. Human willingness to revert to the behavioral ideals of nationalism, racism and, in particular, religion, leave this now globally dominant species fragmented by aggressive tribal attitudes, dicing with the destruction of not only humanity itself, but a great deal of life on planet Earth.

Market Place Leadership (Paperback): Bishop Wayne Malcolm Market Place Leadership (Paperback)
Bishop Wayne Malcolm
R308 Discovery Miles 3 080 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In this groundbreaking book, Bishop Wayne Malcolm addresses the possibility and practicalities of national healing through marketplace leadership. At the heart of his thesis is the role that everyday believers play in the four arenas of social authority known as the marketplace. He argues persuasively that the marketplace determines the character and culture of cities and as such should be targeted by the universal church as a legitimate mission field. This book actively encourages an invasion of the marketplace with a view to bringing innovative and ethical leadership to the arenas of politics, business, education and communities. It further lays out a plan for reclaiming cities and re-building broken nations through marketplace leadership. It is the author's hope that you be inspired and motivated to take your own career and vocation to the new levels of spiritual and social significance in the knowledge that the Scriptures are backing you all the way to the top! Bishop Wayne Malcolm has been called a master motivator and is considered to be a leading performance coach who draws from his wealth of experience as a Christian leader, an international conference speaker and an entrepreneur in the personal development industry. He is affectionately known as the 'Business-Bishop', having authored over 25 books on self-development and entrepreneurship as the relate to the Christian faith and has personally trained thousands of people around the world through workshops, seminars and training programs on the science pf achievement and professional progress. In addition to his global speaking itinerary, the Bishop appears on numerous TV and radio programs and hosts weekly webcasts that attract a global audience. He is the founder and president of the International Christ Ambassadors Network ICAN Community Churches, a Global Academy for Marketplace Leadership and a Global Network of Marketplace Ministers.

Atonement and the Death of Christ - An Exegetical, Historical, and Philosophical Exploration (Hardcover): William Lane Craig Atonement and the Death of Christ - An Exegetical, Historical, and Philosophical Exploration (Hardcover)
William Lane Craig
R539 Discovery Miles 5 390 In stock

Through his death on the cross, Christ atoned for sin and so reconciled people to God. New Testament authors drew upon a range of metaphors and motifs to describe this salvific act, and down through history Christian thinkers have tried to articulate various theories to explain the atonement. While Christ's sacrifice serves as a central tenet of the Christian faith, the mechanism of atonementaexactly how Christ effects our salvationaremains controversial and ambiguous to many Christians. In Atonement and the Death of Christ ,William Lane Craig conducts an interdisciplinary investigation of this crucial Christian doctrine, drawing upon Old and New Testament studies, historical theology, and analytic philosophy.The study unfolds in three discrete parts:Craig first explores the biblical basis of atonement and unfolds the wide variety of motifs used to characterize this doctrine. Craig then highlights some of the principal alternative theories of the atonement offered by great Christian thinkers of the premodern era. Lastly, Craig's exploration delves into a constructive and innovative engagement with philosophy of law, which allows an understanding of atonement that moves beyond mystery and into the coherent mechanism of penal substitution. Along the way, Craig enters into conversation with contemporary systematic theories of atonement as he seeks to establish a position that is scripturally faithful and philosophically sound.The result is a multifaceted perspective that upholds the suffering of Christ as a substitutionary, representational, and redemptive act that satisfies divine justice. In addition, this carefully reasoned approach addresses the rich tapestry of Old Testament imagery upon which the first Christians drew to explain how the sinless Christ saved his people from the guilt of their sins.

The Trinity - An Introduction to Catholic Doctrine on the Triune God (Paperback): Gilles Emery, Matthew Levering The Trinity - An Introduction to Catholic Doctrine on the Triune God (Paperback)
Gilles Emery, Matthew Levering
R608 Discovery Miles 6 080 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Representing the highest quality of scholarship, Gilles Emery offers a much-anticipated introduction to Catholic doctrine on the Trinity. His extensive research combined with lucid prose provides readers a resource to better understand the foundations of Trinitarian reflection. The book is addressed to all who wish to benefit from an initiation to Trinitarian doctrine. The path proposed by this introductory work comprises six steps. First the book indicates some liturgical and biblical ways for entering into Trinitarian faith. It then presents the revelation of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the New Testament, by inviting the reader to reflect upon the signification of the word "God." Next it explores the confessions of Trinitarian faith, from the New Testament itself to the Creed of Constantinople, on which it offers a commentary. By emphasizing the Christian culture inherited from the fourth-century Fathers of the Church, the book presents the fundamental principles of Trinitarian doctrine, which find their summit in the Christian notion of "person." On these foundations, the heart of the book is a synthetic exposition of the persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in their divine being and mutual relations, and in their action for us. Finally, the last step takes up again the study of the creative and saving action of the Trinity: the book concludes with a doctrinal exposition of the "missions" of the Son and Holy Spirit, that is, the salvific sending of the Son and Holy Spirit that leads humankind to the contemplation of the Father.

Blood Theology - Seeing Red in Body- and God-Talk (Hardcover): Eugene F. Rogers, Jr Blood Theology - Seeing Red in Body- and God-Talk (Hardcover)
Eugene F. Rogers, Jr
R867 R818 Discovery Miles 8 180 Save R49 (6%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The unsettling language of blood has been invoked throughout the history of Christianity. But until now there has been no truly sustained treatment of how Christians use blood to think with. Eugene F. Rogers Jr. discusses in his much-anticipated new book the sheer, surprising strangeness of Christian blood-talk, exploring the many and varied ways in which it offers a language where Christians cooperate, sacrifice, grow and disagree. He asks too how it is that blood-talk dominates when other explanations would do, and how blood seeps into places where it seems hardly to belong. Reaching beyond academic disputes, to consider how religious debates fuel civil ones, he shows that it is not only theologians or clergy who engage in blood-talk, but also lawmakers, judges, generals, doctors and voters at large. Religious arguments have significant societal consequences, Rogers contends; and for that reason secular citizens must do their best to understand them.
