  • A Nonviolent Theology of Love: Peacefully Confessing the Apostles Creed

    A Nonviolent Theology of Love: Peacefully Confessing the Apostles Creed

    Sharon L. Baker Putt (Author)

    Putt's book argues for a "systematic" theology of a nonviolent God. Chapters follow the structure of the Apostles' Creed--God, Trinity, the Person and Work of Jesus, Holy Spirit, Creation, Church, the Human Person, and the Last Days, making it an ideal teaching text. Each chapter lays out a brief summary of traditional beliefs and then explores these theological topics in light of a nonviolent, redemptive God.

  • The Art of Living for A Technological Age

    The Art of Living for A Technological Age

    Ashley John Moyse (Editor), Scott A. Kirkland (Editor)

    The Art of Living for A Technological Age sketches the crisis of our late modern age, where persons are enamored by the promises of progress and disciplined to form by the power of technology--the ontology of our age.

  • 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.

    World Christianity, Urbanization and Identity

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

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.
