Free in Deed
The Heart of Lutheran Ethics
Free in Deed provides an imaginative and succinct introduction to Lutheran ethics, which the author contends is, finally, neighbor ethics. The gospel of Jesus Christ sets us free to serve neighbors--including all creation--and their well-being. This Lutheran framework provides a distinctive approach for navigating social issues in tumultuous times.
Jewish-Christianity and the History of Judaism
In this book, Annette Yoshiko Reed reconsiders Jewish-Christianity in the context of late antiquity and in conversation with Jewish studies. She brings further attention to understudied texts and traditions from late antiquity that do not fit neatly into present-day notions of Christianity as distinct from Judaism.
The Word within the Words
In The Word within the Words, Malcom Guite shows how his Christian faith informs and underpins his poetry and, in turn, how poetry itself and, more widely, the poetic imagination help him understand and interpret his faith. It is illustrated throughout with personal stories and poetry, both classics from the cannon and Guite's own poems.
The Primacy of Love
In an age of anxiety where reason is deified, what is the role of love? From the cosmological to the theological dimensions of existence, love is the irresistible force of attraction to the heart of God. The book is divided based on a metaphysics of love: we are born out of divine love, exist in love, and are oriented toward love.
The Myth of Christian Supremacy
Restoring Our Democratic Ideals
The Myth of Christian Supremacy is the culmination of a lifelong scholarly inquiry into Christian history, religion as a social institution, and the role of myth in the history of religions. Mack shows that Christianity has been an ever-changing mythological engine of social formation, from Roman times to its distinct American expression today.
