  • The Liberation of Method: The Ethics of Emancipatory Biblical Interpretation

    The Liberation of Method: The Ethics of Emancipatory Biblical Interpretation

    David Janzen (Author)

    The field of biblical studies has championed the historical-critical method as the only way to guarantee objective interpretation. But in recent decades, scholars have pursued hermeneutical approaches that provide interpretations useful for marginalized communities who see the Bible as a resource in their struggles against oppression. Such liberative strategies remain on the margins. The Liberation of Method argues that this marginality must end, and that liberative methods should become central to biblical studies.

  • Athena to Barbie: Bodies, Archetypes, and Women's Search for Self

    Athena to Barbie: Bodies, Archetypes, and Women's Search for Self

    J. Lenore Wright (Author)

    Athena to Barbie destabilizes a range of received social constructions of woman and expands the ways women conceive of themselves as female subjects. In the end, it inspires women's imagination about themselves, grounds that imagination in history by comparison, and empowers the lived lives of women. The book challenges the long-standing subordination of women and offers women fruitful, if still vexed, options to express female agency. It does all this in conversation with Christian tradition.

    Embracing Diversity: Faith, Vocation, and the Promise of America

    Darrell Jodock (Author), William Nelsen (Author)

  • World Christianity, Urbanization and Identity

    World Christianity, Urbanization and Identity

    Moses O. Biney (Volume Editor), Kenneth Ngwa (Volume Editor), Raimundo Barreto (Volume Editor)

    World Christianity, Urbanization and Identity argues that urban centers do not only offer places for persons to live, shop, and seek entertainment, but deeply shape people's ethics, behavior, sense of justice, and how they learn to become human. Given that religious participation and institutions are vital to individual and communal life, particularly in urban centers, this interdisciplinary volume provides insights into the interaction between urban change and religious formation in the word today.

  • Black Power and the American Myth: 50th Anniversary Edition

    Black Power and the American Myth: 50th Anniversary Edition

    C T Vivian (Author)

    - the myth that America is an open society where any minority group can advance.

    - the myth that an ethic of love forms the core of the American conscience.

  • An Asian Introduction to the New Testament

    An Asian Introduction to the New Testament

    Johnson Thomaskutty (Editor)

    As the Asian context is the cradle of many of the world's religions, the New Testament writings should be interpreted and reinterpreted by accepting their pluriform religious and ideological aspects. Moreover, the existence of multiple Christian denominations demands a doctrinally and conceptually balanced interpretation of the Scriptures. This book will demonstrate inclusive biblical claims within multireligious and multidenominational contexts.

  • The Spirit Shaped Church: A Spirit Ecclesiology in India

    The Spirit Shaped Church: A Spirit Ecclesiology in India

    Swarup Bår (Author)

    In The Spirit Shaped Church, Swarup Bar argues that the church is defined by its relationship with others. A relational church depends on porous borders, which means that, while a church has its distinctiveness, it ought to be open to negotiate relational engagements with the world around it. This sort of relationally distinct, permeable church is found to be possible through the leading of the Spirit and the work of Christ.

Stanley has gathered many of the foremost voices in postcolonial and empire-critical scholarship on Paul to provide a state-of-the-art guide to these questions.

    Open Wounds: A Story of Racial Tragedy, Trauma, and Redemption

    Phillip K. Allen Jr. (Author)

    On December 10, 1953, tragedy struck when Nathaniel Allen was murdered on the Sampit River by his white employer. Allen's death was recorded as an accidental drowning, a deliberate cover-up of the bullet hole seen by more than one witness.

    Three generations later, Phil Allen Jr. revisits this harrowing story through interviews, difficult conversations, and deep theological reflection, naming racism for what it is and working to chart a path toward reconciliation.
