    Preaching the Headlines: Possibilities and Pitfalls

    Lisa L. Thompson (Author)

    Preaching the Headlines reframes preaching as an ongoing conversation between the modern world and the world of the biblical text. Preachers use what they know about life as a bridge to the text, while life in the text provides the bridge back to faith in the contemporary world. The goal of the book is to provide a process to aid preachers in doing theological reflection on the everyday world as an integral part of sermon development.

  • "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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.
