They Who Give From Evil

The Response of the Eastern Church to Moneylending in the Early Christian Era

by Brenda Llewellyn Ihssen

ISBN: 9780227173985

“As a work in patristics, Ihssen’s monograph completes necessary spadework about one aspect of the social teaching of two major Eastern church thinkers. As a guide to social response for Christians today, Ihssen makes a further down-payment on a valuable and difficult project—to discover what sort of economy a self-consciously Christian civilization barely free of the era of the New Testament church did adopt or cerate once free of persecution.”

Richard Hooker and the Vision of God
Exploring the Origins of ‘Anglicanism’


B
y Charles Miller
ISBN: 9780227174005

“… [Miller] proves his case that Hooker has much to teach us today. Hooker challenges a relativistic approach, relates theology and spirituality, certainly challenges the church to recover confidence in its worship, and shows how to conduct a religious controversy! Miller wryly comments that the name Hooker is more honoured than read; let us hope that this book is read.”

Gazing on God

Trinity, Church and Salvation in Orthodox Thought and Iconography

by Andreas Andreopoulos 

ISBN: 9780227174463

“The author takes us through his exhibition of chosen icons and shows how they convey biblical and theological truth, and so incorporate us into the life of the church though meditative looking, The author uses illustrations from his native Greek culture, and this introduces an approach that maybe fresh and unfamiliar [...] He shows us not only that there are varied ways of appropriating the tradition of faith, but also that faith has to be expressed and communicated within a specific culture and that each age has to discover its own language, images and experiences, in order to express faith in a way that lives.”
