Description: "". . . that you may become partakers in the divine nature"" 2 Peter 1:4 ""The theme of deification intimately touches on human identity and the actualization of humanity's ultimate purpose. It is predominantly an anthropological and soteriological expression of Christian theology. At the same time, it testifies to the identity of a Christian God, divine universal design, and God's economy, where the trinitarian and christological apprehension receives the central place. Theosis, both on an individual and cosmic scale, is not exiguous in its eschatological perspective, either. The testimony of theosis is testimony to the inexplicable mystery of divine intimacy. Deification penetrates all spheres of human existence, and can be seen as an answer to most pending ultimate questions. It is essentially practical in its manifestation and uplifting in its content, but nevertheless, always evasive and arcane in its comprehension."" From the Introduction This book contains biblical and historical-theological essays that offer innovative approaches to the issue of theosis. The interconnections between the theology of deification and the doctrines of the Trinity, Christology, anthropology, protology, hamartiology, soteriology, and eschatology are made manifest in these fascinating new studies. It is aimed both at those who are already students of theosis and at those who are looking for an introductory text. It also contains a comprehensive and up-to-date bibliography for those seeking further resources on the theme. Endorsements: ""Theosis is back, and it is here to stay--no longer as the focus solely of one stream of the Christian tradition, but as a fully biblical and ecumenical account of salvation. Vladimir Kharlamov, with his colleagues, offers us another volume of significant essays on theosis/deification in the Christian tradition, from the evangelists to contemporary Baptists. They add to the burgeoning literature on the central reality of Christian faith: transformative participation in the very life of the Triune God."" --Michael J. Gorman The Ecumenical Institute of Theology, St. Mary's Seminary & University, Baltimore, MD ""Vladimir Kharlamov has successfully gathered a lively collection of studies covering foundational aspects of the ancient concept of theosis. The chapters range from the teachings of Jesus and the Fathers, to contemporary attempts to appropriate the notion today (its relevance to the Reformed tradition, its importance to Christian ecology). The book is an exciting example of the energy that still exists in putting the ancient tradition in discussion with the pressing concerns of the world."" --V.Revd. Dr. John A. McGuckin Nielsen Professor of Ancient & Byzantine Christian History Union Theological Seminary, New York ""Vladimir Kharlamov has assembled a rich and remarkable volume that will offer profound gifts to the church's theological reflection. Whether one is already a student of the doctrine of theosis or is seeking an introduction to its riches, s/he will do well to take this volume and read it carefully."" --Philip E. Thompson Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Heritage Sioux Falls Seminary, Sioux Falls, South Dakota ""A well-researched,  carefully edited, and welcomed volume on the amazing, engaging, enduring, bold, and bewildering notions of deifying grace in Scripture, historical theology, ecumenical discussion, and contemporary reflection. Vladimir Kharlamov, as editor, expertly navigates students of Scripture and seasoned scholars through the complexities of theosis, from East to West, from historical to contemporary contexts, and succeeds in connecting es

Does God Love Everyone? Cascade Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Does God truly love all persons? Most Christians think the obvious answer to this question is, ""Yes, of course he does!"" Indeed, many Christians would agree that the very heart of the gospel is that God so loved the whole world that he gave his Son to make salvation available for every single person. This book shows that one of the most popular and resurgent theological movements in the contemporary evangelical church--namely, Calvinism--cannot coherently and consistently affirm this vital claim about the love of God. While some Calvinists forthrightly deny that God loves everyone, more commonly Calvinists attempt to affirm the love of God for all persons in terms that are compatible with their doctrines that Christ died only for the elect--those persons God has unconditionally chosen to save. This book shows that the Calvinist attempts to affirm God's love for all persons are fraught with severe philosophical and theological difficulties. Calvinism, then, should be rejected in favor a theology that can forthrightly and consistently affirm the love of God for all persons. Nothing less is at stake than the very heart of the gospel. Option 1: ""In his defense of God's sincere love for everyone, Jerry Walls provides a biblically robust and logically astute perspective. He rightly argues that 'this issue is not simply an academic question to be debated by scholars . . . what is at stake is the very nature of the gospel we preach.'""    Option 2: ""Do not be misled, this book is not really about John Calvin. Nor is it even about the TULIP systematic that bares his name. Rather, it is primarily about the person, character, and love of our graciously good God. In that regard, Jerry Walls has produced a work that will serve the church for generations to come.""   Option 3: ""Walls gets to heart of the matter when he asks, 'What does it say about a theological system if many of those who believe it doubt whether God loves unbelievers? Do we have good news for everyone? Is there a message of hope for all persons? Can we honestly preach to all unbelievers that God loves them?' Calvinism, applied logically, cannot answer these questions in a way that is consistent with the scriptures."" --Leighton Flowers, Director of Youth Evangelism for Texas Baptists ""The movement loosely known as Calvinism has emerged as a vibrant and powerful force within evangelical Protestantism. Jerry Walls, in turn, has emerged as the most forceful and rigorous critic of Calvinism. In this short and readable book, he puts his theological knowledge and philosophical acumen to work in making a biblical and logical case that Calvinism is beset with real difficulties. Does God Love Everyone? raises some sharp challenges that deserve serious engagement."" --Tom McCall, Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School  ""Arguably the greatest service this volume offers is a solid response to the busy ministry leader who is asking, 'So, what's the big fuss over Calvinism?' Does God Love Everyone? provides understandable answers to that contemporary question. Those Christian faith traditions, who have historically embraced a vibrant evangelistic effort, will appreciate the clear observations Walls provides for keeping their commitment to effectively reach 'all the people,' with the gospel, on sturdy theological ground."" --Byron D. Klaus, Former President, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary ""Walls demonstrates biblically and philosophically the 'heart of what's wrong with Calvinism' while maintaining an irenic spirit. Everyone concerned about truth, evangelism, and the honor of God ought to read this book, especially if they are not yet settled in their mind about the Calvinist 'doctrines of grace.'""
