  • The Making of Stanley Hauerwas: Bridging Barth and Postliberalism, By David B. Hunsicker

    The Making of Stanley Hauerwas

    Bridging Barth and Postliberalism

    New Explorations in Theology

    by David B. Hunsicker
    Foreword by Stanley Hauerwas

    Stanley Hauerwas is often associated with the postliberal theological movement, yet he also claims to stand within Karl Barth's theological tradition. Which is true?

  • Reading Scripture as the Church: Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Hermeneutic of Discipleship, By Derek W. Taylor

    Reading Scripture as the Church

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Hermeneutic of Discipleship

    New Explorations in Theology

    by Derek W. Taylor

    The Bible is meant to be read in the church, by the church, as the church. Following the example of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Derek Taylor argues that we should regard the reading of Scripture as an inherently communal exercise of discipleship. In conversation with other theologians, Taylor shares how this approach to Scripture can engender a faithful hermeneutical community.

  • T. F. Torrance as Missional Theologian: The Ascended Christ and the Ministry of the Church, By Joseph H. Sherrard

    T. F. Torrance as Missional Theologian

    The Ascended Christ and the Ministry of the Church

    New Explorations in Theology

    by Joseph H. Sherrard
    Foreword by Alan Torrance

    What contribution can T. F. Torrance make to the discussion of a "missional" view of the church? Theologian and pastor Joseph Sherrard considers how Torrance's theology can inform the church's understanding of its ministry and mission—in particular, his appeal to the church's participation in the ascended Christ's threefold office as king, prophet, and priest.

  • Jonathan Edwards and Deification: Reconciling Theosis and the Reformed Tradition, By James R. Salladin

    Jonathan Edwards and Deification

    Reconciling Theosis and the Reformed Tradition

    New Explorations in Theology

    by James R. Salladin

    The language of deification, or participation in the divine nature as a way to understand salvation, often sounds strange to Western Christians. But perhaps Western theologies have more in common with theosis that we thought. James Salladin considers the role of deification in the theology of Jonathan Edwards, exploring how Edwards's soteriology compares with the broader Reformed tradition.

    Chrysostom's Devil

    Demons, the Will, and Virtue in Patristic Soteriology

    New Explorations in Theology

    by Samantha L. Miller

    References to demons and the devil permeate the rhetoric of John Chrysostom, the "golden-tongued" early church preacher and theologian. Samantha Miller examines Chrysostom's theology and world, helping us understand the role of demons in his soteriology and exploring what it means to be human and to follow Christ in a world of temptation.

  • Martin Luther and the Rule of Faith: Reading God's Word for God's People, By Todd R. Hains

    Martin Luther and the Rule of Faith

    Reading God's Word for God's People

    New Explorations in Theology

    by Todd R. Hains
    Foreword by Robert Kolb

    Martin Luther is known for challenging the Roman Catholic church; yet reading God's Word was what Luther considered his primary task. Though he is often portrayed as reading the Bible with a bare approach, Todd R. Hains considers how Luther's interpretation of the text was actually guided by the church's established practice of hermeneutics.
