  • The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Volume 2

    The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Volume 2

    Victoria J. Barnett (Author), Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Author)

    In his preaching, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's strong, personal faith—the foundation for everything he did—shines in the darkness of Hitler's Third Reich and in the church struggle against it. Though not overtly political, Bonhoeffer's deep concern for the developments in his world is revealed in his sermons as he seeks to draw the listener into conversation with the promises and claims of the gospel—a conversation readers today are invited to join.

  • "After Ten Years": Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Our Times

    Victoria J. Barnett (Author)

    How does one read the signs of the times? What does it mean to resist? How do we engage faithfully in struggle? Dietrich Bonhoeffer has achieved iconic status as one who epitomizes what it means to struggle and resist tyranny and fascism and how one acts in faithful witness as a religious and political commitment. Bonhoeffer’s witness and example is more relevant than ever. A testimony to that is a crucial essay penned by Bonhoeffer in 1942; “After Ten Years” is a succinct and sober reflection, and remains one of the best descriptions ever written about what happened to the German people under National Socialism. This volume presents this timely and unique essay in a fresh translation and a penetrating introduction and analysis of the importance of this essay—in Bonhoeffer’s time and now in our own.

  • Body Parts: A Theological Anthropology

    Body Parts: A Theological Anthropology

    Michelle Voss Roberts (Author)

    Christians have traditionally claimed that humans are created in the image of God (imago Dei), but they have consistently defined that image in ways that exclude people from full humanity. The most well-known definition locates the image in the rational soul, which is constructed in such a way that women, children, and many persons with disabilities are found deficient. Body Parts claims the importance of embodiment, difference, and limitation?not only as descriptions of the human condition but also as part of the imago Dei itself.

  • Wholly Citizens: God's Two Realms and Christian Engagement with the World

    Wholly Citizens: God's Two Realms and Christian Engagement with the World

    Joel D. Biermann (Author)

    Wholly Citizens addresses the relation between the church and the world in light of the Reformation teaching of the two realms—especially as presented by Luther. Rather than exploring again the usual texts of Luther from the 1520’s, this book begins with a careful reading of Luther’s Commentary on Psalm 81 (1531), and then considers subsequent interpreters of Luther, both faithful and otherwise, and the dubious legacy they have left the church.

  • Joy Unspeakable: Contemplative Practices of the Black Church (Second Edition)

    Joy Unspeakable: Contemplative Practices of the Black Church (Second Edition)

    Barbara A. Holmes (Author)

    Joy Unspeakable focuses on the aspects of the Black church that point beyond particular congregational gatherings toward a mystical and communal spirituality not within the exclusive domain of any denomination. Holmes's research--through oral histories, church records, and written accounts--details not only ways in which contemplative experience is built into African American collective worship but also the legacy of African monasticism, a history of spiritual exemplars, and unique meditative worship practices.

  • Radical Discipleship: A Liturgical Politics of the Gospel

    Radical Discipleship: A Liturgical Politics of the Gospel

    Jennifer M. McBride (Author)

    This work seeks to form readers into an understanding of the social and political character of the good news proclaimed in the Gospels. Organically connecting liturgy with activism and theological reflection, McBride argues that discipleship requires that privileged Christians place their bodies in spaces of social struggle and distress to reduce the distance between themselves and those who suffer injustice, and stand in solidarity with those whom society deems guilty, despises, and rejects—which makes discipleship radical as Christians take seriously the Jesus of the Gospels.

    Living By Faith: Justification and Sanctification

    Oswald Bayer (Author)

    "Living by faith" is much more than a general Christian precept; it is the fundamental posture of believers in a world rife with suffering and injustice. In this penetrating reflection on the meaning of "justification," Oswald Bayer shows how this key religious term provides a comprehensive horizon for discussing every aspect of Christian theology, from creation to the end times.

    The Captivation of the Will: Luther Vs. Erasmus on Freedom and Bondage

    Gerhard O. Forde (Author), Steven D. Paulson (Editor)

    The Captivation of the Will provocatively revisits a perennial topic of controversy: human free will. Highly esteemed Lutheran thinker Gerhard O. Forde cuts to the heart of the subject by reexamining the famous debate on the will between Luther and Erasmus. Following a substantial introduction by James A. Nestingen that brings to life the historical background of the debate, Forde thoroughly explores Luther's "Bondage of the Will" and the dispute between Erasmus and Luther that it reflects.
