Insights from a noteworthy convergence of top scholars in biblical studies and missiology Over the past half century, it has become clear that mission is a central theme in the Bible's narrative and, moreover, is central to the very identity of the church. This book significantly widens and deepens the emerging conversation on missional hermeneutics. Essays from top biblical and missiological scholars discuss reading the Scriptures missionally, using mission as a key interpretive lens. Five introductory chapters probe various elements of a missional hermeneutic, followed by sections on the Old and New Testaments that include chapters on two books from each to illustrate what a missional reading of them looks like. Essays in two concluding sections draw out the implications of a missional reading of Scripture for preaching and for theological education. CONTRIBUTORS Craig G. Bartholomew Richard Bauckham Carl J.

Lara Jeans Liebesleben verlief bisher eher unauffällig. Nicht, dass es ihr an Herz oder Fantasie mangelte. Im Gegenteil, Liebeskummer hatte sie schon oft, und unsterblich verliebt war sie auch schon. Einmal sogar in den Freund ihrer großen Schwester. Klar, dass sie das keinem anvertrauen kann. Außer ihrer Hutschachtel. Denn um sich ihrer Gefühle klar zu werden, schreibt Lara Jean jedes Mal einen Abschieds-Liebesbrief, in dem sie so richtig ihr Herz ausschüttet, und legt ihn dort hinein. Diese fünf Briefe sind ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem auf mysteriöse Weise jeder Brief seinen Empfänger erreicht und Lara Jeans rein imaginäres Liebesleben völlig außer Kontrolle gerät ...

Drawing on a broad array of contributors, volume seven of the Scripture and Hermeneutics Series assesses the current state of canonical interpretation and uses that as a starting point for exploring ingredients in theological interpretation of the Bible today. Canon and Biblical Interpretation begins with a masterful examination of the canonical approach and the various criticisms that have been leveled against it. Additional chapters look at canonical interpretation in relation to different parts of the Bible, such as the Pentateuch, the Wisdom books, the Psalms, and the Gospels. Articles address such issues as canonical authority and the controversial relationship between canonical interpretation and general hermeneutics. A unique chapter explores the relationship between academic exegesis and lectio divina. Editors: • Craig Bartholomew • Robin Parry • Scott Hahn • Christopher Seitz • Al Wolters

Biblical theology attempts to explore the theological coherence of the canonical witnesses; no serious Christian theology can overlook this issue. The essays in the present volume illustrate the complexity and richness of the conversation that results from attentive consideration of the question. In a time when some voices are calling for a moratorium on biblical theology or pronouncing its concerns obsolete, this collection of meaty essays demonstrates the continuing vitality and necessity of the enterprise. Richard B. Hays, George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testament, The Divinity School, Duke University, USA This volume on biblical theology jumps into the fray and poses the right kind of questions. It does not offer a single way forward. Several of the essays are quite fresh and provocative, breaking new ground (Bray, Reno); others set out the issues with clarity and grace (Bartholomew); others offer programmatic analysis (Webster; Bauckham); others offer a fresh angle of view (Chapman, Martin). The success of this series is in facing the challenge of disarray in biblical studies head-on and then modeling a variety of approaches to stimulate our reflection.

Have you wondered how the Bible hangs together, or how to make sense of it all? The Bible isn't a set of separate books: it's a compelling drama that unfolds from beginning to end. This book unfolds Scripture in six "acts" from the establishment of God's kingdom to the "return of the King." The authors clearly show God working in the world and in the lives of people to establish the great kingdom that has been God's plan from the beginning. Learn how God's story continues in our lives here and now, and how to discover our meaning and place in it. Great for seasoned Christians looking for a new way to read the Bible as well as for new believers who want to understand the Scriptures in a Reformed context. Discussion questions are included.

Creative Bible Lessons in Genesis

Creative Bible Lessons in Genesis follows the work previously done with other studies in the series. What makes this volume different is that it is sensitive to the influence of postmodernism on today’s culture and values, it complements the widespread use of multimedia, and is experiential in approach. With a desire to be relevant, it does not scan Scripture, but intends to be scripturally thorough and accurate, with an understanding that the power of the studies is ultimately found in the biblical text. Because much of what is understood to be "truth" today is arrived to by subjective interpretation, there is a strong but subtle element in the studies that highlights the Imago Dei (image of God) in man. The blueprint of the Trinitarian God in man is, perhaps, the sturdiest bridge between postmodern "experiencisms" and ultimate truth and reality. In order to emphasize these elements, Bible studies include projection games, helps, and visuals. Also, many of the studies are highlighted by a participation which attempts to be close to the text account. There are small group and large group elements that have been developed with the technologically savvy student in mind.Creative Bible Lessons in Genesis follows the lives of various individuals in Genesis. In a world where communication is less face-to-face and more screen to screen, family breakdowns are the norm rather than the exception, and role models often communicate debatable values, an anchor for life can only be found in the God, who does not change. Human nature can only be satisfactorily understood through the image of God in man, and that all behavior, desires, and actions people take are ultimate acts of worship, and desire for God. The return to the Imago Dei in man is the clearest way to present absolute truth to a relative society in that it is able to posit a valid argument for God and faith from an intellectual and logic platform, as well as from a subjective/emotional/experiential platform.

Culture in a Post-Secular Context

Theological Possibilities in Milbank, Barth, and Bediako

Is culture a theologically neutral concept? The contemporary experts on culture--anthropologists and sociologists--argue that it is. Theologians and missiologists would seem to agree, given the extent of their reliance on anthropological and sociological definitions of culture. Yet, this appears a strange reliance given that presumed neutrality in the sciences is a consistently challenged assumption. It is stranger still given that so much theological energy has been expended on understanding and defining the human person in specifically theological as opposed to anthropological terms when culture is in some sense the expression of this personhood in corporate and material forms. This book argues that culture is not and has never been a theologically neutral concept; rather, it always expresses some theological posture and is therefore a term that naturally invites theological investigation. Going about this task is difficult however, in the face of a longterm reliance on the social sciences that seems to have starved the contemporary theological community of resources for defining culture. Against this it is argued that rich subterranean veins for such a task do exist within the recent tradition, most notably in the writings of John Milbank, Karl Barth, and Kwame Bediako.

Der Gott der Lebendigen

Eine biblische Gotteslehre

Author: Hermann Spieckermann,Reinhard Feldmeier

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783161553882


Page: 691

View: 9975

English summary: Focusing on the history of religion, the authors explore the Old and New Testaments in order to ascertain which basic knowledge is imparted about God as "the One who loves us." The dialogue between Old and New Testament experts results in a biblical theology which traces the theological topoi in their historical development and at the same time puts them in the order of their factually based importance as well as their logical context. German description: "Spieckermann und Feldmeier legen eine Gotteslehre vor, deren Lekture durch ihre theologische Klarheit, ihre ausgesprochen schone Sprache und ihren kreativen Stil beeindruckt. Fur ein intensives Studium, ob zur Auffrischung bibeltheologischer Kenntnisse oder zu einem ersten Herantasten an den Themenkomplex biblischer Theologie, ist das Buch ebenso geeignet wie fur eine separate Rezeption der in sich verstandlichen einzelnen Kapitel." Martin Nitsche in Theologie der Gegenwart 2012, Heft 4, S. 317-318 "Darin liegen fur Feldmeier und Spieckermann Gottes Zuwendung, Zumutung und Zuspruch gleichermassen begrundet, [...] dass im Neuen Testament "verdichtet" wird, was das Alte Testament "vorgedacht" hat. Sie finden damit zu einer Theologie, die sich weder auf historische Religionsformen noch auf "christliche Werte" herunterbrechen lasst. Sie finden zu einer Theologie, die ihr aufklarerisch-kritisches Moment selbst enthalt." Dirk Pilz in Berliner Zeitung, 19.3.2012 "Das Buch ist ein exzellentes Werk - in konziser Darlegung und in guter Zusammenfassung. So ist der Band allen Theologinnen und Theologen in kirchlicher und schulischer Praxis sehr zu empfehlen." Karl-Friedrich Wiggermann in PV-aktuell Nr. 2, 2011, S. 17
