Rudolf Bultmann Cascade Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Rudolf Bultmann is one of the most widely known but least read theologians of the twentieth century. He is famous as the one who ""demythologized"" the New Testament, but very few understand what he meant by this or how his hermeneutical program connects to the other areas of his theological project. Bultmann presents a unique challenge to readers, not only because of his radical theological inquiry but also because of the way his ideas are worked out over time, primarily through short, occasional writings that present complex issues in a disarmingly straightforward manner. In this introduction to his theology--the first of its kind in more than twenty years--David W. Congdon guides readers through ten central themes in Bultmann's theology, ranging from eschatology and dialectic to freedom and advent. By gaining an understanding of these themes, students of Bultmann will have the necessary tools to understand and profit from his writings. The result is not only an accessible guide for those encountering Bultmann for the first time but also a cohesive, systematic presentation of his thought for those wondering how his work might speak to our current context. ""With great clarity and insight, focusing on themes which lie at the very heart of Bultmann's theological project and placing him in conversation with recent and contemporary trends, David W. Congdon has written the best short introduction to Bultmann's thought. The point is not to 'return' to the great New Testament scholar and theologian--but neither should we bypass him."" --Christophe Chalamet, University of Geneva ""Who better than David Congdon to take us into the work of Christianity's greatest interpreter of Scripture in the modern period? With an expert's grasp of the entire architecture of Rudolf Bultmann's thought, Congdon leads the reader through its conceptual entry points. Here is a reliable primer, likely a classic, to guide both beginning students and well-schooled theologians away from the misconceptions, even myths, so often bedeviling treatments of Bultmann."" --James F. Kay, Princeton Theological Seminary ""In these pages, Bultmann stands before us as a difficult but compelling figure, a Christian thinker who took the eschatological vision of the New Testament as his charter and pursued its course with extraordinary tenacity and fearlessness. Congdon sets Bultmann's thought into critical discussion with contemporary theology, posing sharp challenges to our current preferences for ressourcement and the rule of faith. And he saves the best till last. The book ends with a superb meditation on Bultmann's Christmas sermons--a glimpse of Bultmann at his most attractive, or most seductive, depending on where you stand."" --Benjamin Myers, Charles Sturt University ""David Congdon's lucid and innovative treatment of Rudolf Bultmann is an excellent contribution to scholarship. Those eager to understand, appreciate, and, most importantly, learn from one of the most important (and, alas, most misunderstood) 'greats' of twentieth-century European theology have, in this book, an indispensable resource."" --Paul Dafydd Jones, Associate Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of Virginia ""Being master of a subject matter as demanding as Rudolf Bultmann's theology and a master communicator, capable of introducing that subject-matter to beginning students in a manner both interesting and arresting (!) is rare. David Congdon has that rare combination of skills. This is a wonderful 'guide' to Bultmann's thought. Indeed, it is hard to imagine one more perfectly executed. It is a companion worthy of the thought of one of the real giants of twentieth century theology."" --Bruce McCormack, Charles Hodge Professor of Systematic Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary; author of
Misunderstanding Stories Wipf & Stock Publishers
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Synopsis: How can we work toward mutual understanding in our increasingly diverse and interconnected world? Pastoral theologian Melinda McGarrah Sharp approaches this multifaceted, interdisciplinary question by beginning with moments of intercultural misunderstanding. Using misunderstanding stories from her experience working with the Peace Corps in Suriname, Dr. McGarrah Sharp argues that we must recognize the limits of our own cultural perspectives in order to have meaningful intercultural encounters that are more mutually empowering and hopeful. Bringing together resources from pastoral theology, ethnography, and postcolonial studies, she provides a valuable resource for investigating the complexity of providing care and fostering communities of belonging across cultural differences. McGarrah Sharp illustrates a process of moving from disconnection to regard for diverse others as neighbors who share a common yearning for hopeful and meaningful connection. Leaders in faith communities, practitioners of care, and scholars will all be able to use this resource to better understand the conflicts, tensions, and uncertainties of our postcolonial twenty-first-century world. An included discussion guide facilitates classroom study, small group discussion, and personal reflection. Endorsements: "At the heart of Misunderstanding Stories are moving and exquisitely analyzed narratives of intercultural (mis-)understanding, set in the context of a Maroon village in my native Suriname. Working towards augmenting the toolbox of pastoral theology with postcolonial studies, this is a book driven by a deep hunger for humanization and justice, and informed by an embodied sense of differential privilege." --Gloria Wekker, Professor Emeritus of Gender Studies, Utrecht University, the Netherlands "Melinda McGarrah Sharp does what few interculturalists seem able to bear--she makes our intercultural conflicts the focus of her work and our learning. The result is a book that helps us explore profound challenges: the inevitability of harming one another, deep relational breaches amid misunderstood cultural differences, self-reflexivity and complicity after colonialism, linguistic chasms, and unresolvable tensions. Adequate postcolonial interculturality is not avoiding these conflicts, but navigating them constructively. McGarrah Sharp illuminates that path." --Kathleen J. Greider, Professor of Practical Theology, Spiritual Care, and Counseling, Claremont School of Theology "McGarrah Sharp insists that to understand we must grapple with our misunderstanding, a misunderstanding heightened by complicity within Western colonialism. The book is unique in its creative use of postcolonial theory to correct basic assumptions about identity development and empathy and its new model of care with a step-by-step analysis of relational breach, crisis, redress, and reconciliation." --Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore, Professor of Religion, Psychology, and Culture, Vanderbilt University "Encounters across cultures are inevitably fraught with dangers of conflict and misunderstanding. Misunderstanding Stories offers a resourceful, nuanced, sensitive, and useful engagement with intercultural misunderstanding. This book makes a much-needed, substantial appeal to pastoral theologians to attend seriously to postcolonial perspectives for a more adequate response to the complexities of culture. Melinda McGarrah Sharp is to be commended." --Emmanuel Y. Lartey, Professor of Pastoral Theology, Care, and Counseling, Candler School of Theology Author Biography: Melinda A. McGarrah Sharp is Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology and Ethics at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is also a trained clinical ethicist, United Methodist layperson, and returned Peace
40 Questions about Baptism and the Lord's Supper Kregel Publications,U.S.
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Answers to 40 of the most common and difficult questions about baptism and communion Appropriate for the student and thoughtful layperson, "40 Questions About Baptism and the Lord's Supper" answers forty of the most common and most difficult questions about the two Protestant ordinances. There is significant diversity of views on these subjects and the skilled, evenhanded biblical analysis sheds lights on the many theological and pastoral considerations regarding baptism and communion. Baptism and the Lord's Supper are practiced by almost all Christian churches, but they disagree on the meaning, proper participants, even the proper names for these observances. This book includes the major theological issues (such as infant baptism, open and closed communion, and the nature of God's activity in these celebrations), the views held by different denominations (from Roman Catholic to Lutheran, Reformed, Baptist, and others), and a number of practical issues (such as the proper age at which to baptize a child, the frequency with which the Lord's Supper should be observed, and whether these two practices should be observed only in churches). This volume will be helpful to pastors, worship leaders, college and seminary students, and of interest to all Christians who want to grow in their understanding of these two basic Christian acts of worship. Each chapter is succinct and readable, with footnotes indicating additional sources for those who wish to go further.
The Development of the Progressive in English GRIN Verlag
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, printed single-sided, grade: 1,3 (A), University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (Anglistics Institute), course: Tense-Aspect-Mood, 6 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In order to present a comprehensive and all-embracing picture of a linguistic phenomenon like the progressive it is important to provide an analysis of the problem from both a synchronic and a diachronic point of view. Following this rule the subsequent paper is divided into two main parts. In the beginning I will try to give a global picture of the progressive form in English as it is used today and I will focus on its meaning and basic functions as well as on its separation from other linguistic states.The second section of this paper is devoted to the historical sources of the English progressive diachronically emerging from Old English over Middle English and Early Modern English into the progressive taught in modern grammars and school books.I do have to mention though that, since I am not a student of Old English or Middle English, my abilities in reading and understanding certain sources and interpretations are limited.In the process of this work I have tried to use secondary sources on Old and Middle English rather than primary sources and I have also tried to leave out most references or citations to primary sources. Nevertheless I believe that, in this paper, I can prove and demonstrate that the English progressive form used nowadays is derived diachronically and directly from Old English.I will present authors who support this view as well as others who oppose it. As my main source I would like to mention Johannes Scheffer, Bybee, Susan Fitzmaurice, Eva Edgren and Debra Ziegeler.
