Contextual Theology for the Twenty-First Century

By Stephen B. Bevans and Katalina Tahaafe-Williams, eds.

ISBN: 9780227679982

“This slim volume is a minor gem in both its critique and its vision for the future. It should make the reading list of any course in contextual and global theology. All the essays are authored by ecumenical theologians and educators, people of hope and verve. They are deeply committed to mission, and willing to let the Spirit lead them where she will.”

By and Beyond the River Chebar

By Daniel I. Block

ISBN: 9780227174395 / 9780227174401

“This collection of essays demonstrates clearly why Block is one of the leading Ezekiel scholars of recent years. He succeeds in letting the audience participate in his deep familiarity with this biblical book and in transporting the prophet’s message into contemporary times. With this two volumes, Block has produced a splendid tool for the Ezekiel scholar that lays a formidable foundation for further discussion and these volumes should not be lacking from any private or university library.”

Gazing on God: Trinity, Church and Salvation in Orthodox Thought and Iconography

by Andreas Andreopoulos

ISBN: 9780227174463

“This is a gem of a book, and although it doesn’t claim to give a full account of the theology of the icon, like the classic two-volume work of Leonid Ouspensky, a number of popular misconceptions are corrected. It is, as Andreopoulos writes, less about what we see as about who sees us (pp. 60  and 130)”.

The Story of Original Sin

By John E. Toews

ISBN: 9780227174142 

“Towes makes some important points along the way – understanding sin as a relational and political concept not an ontological one, for exmaple – …in the process he offers the slenderest of loose threads which could be pulled in various interesting directions. Perhaps he has done us a service in piquing our curiosity and loosening those threads through his determined focus.”

Holy Trinity: Holy People

The Theology of Christian Perfecting

By T.A. Noble

ISBN: 9780227174135

“The remarkable thing about this book is the way it integrates the ‘doctrine of Christian perfection’, a controversial aspect of the Wesleyan theology, into both the whole conspectus of key Christian doctrines and long-range perspectives on the history of Christian theological thinking and practice. This, alongside critical treatment of the more unsatisfactory manifestations of this ‘holines’ tradition, makes it worthy of serious ecumenical attention.”

Postsecularism

The Hidden Cgallenge to Extremism

By Mike King

ISBN: 9780227172476

“Postsecularism engages, importantly, with a contemporary debate on the competing validites of sciences and religion. It provides a well-appraised overview of the dialogue between science and religion, and makes an intriguing argument for furthering a post-secular sensibilty and, in some ways, for recognising cultural difference.”
