Free Chapter Available! An intriguing study of the women included in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus

Mothers on the margin 9780227174746Mothers on the Margin?
The Significance of the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy

by E. Anne Clements

ISBN: 9780227174746

An intriguing study of the women included in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus, revealing their importance for our understanding of the radical message of the gospel.

 

Chapter 8: Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth: Aspects of Matthean Discipleship:
Part 1 has established that the first three named women of Matthew’s Gospel are characterized within their Hebrew narratives not in terms of their sinfulness or scandalous sexual activity but by their virtues of righteousness, faith, and loyalty. This short chapter will argue that righ-teousness, faith, and loyalty are three central aspects of the Matthean Jesus’ teaching in relation to discipleship. It is therefore significant that these themes first appear in the stories of Tamar (righteousness), Rahab (faithand loyalty), and Ruth (loyalty). The naming of Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth inthe genealogy highlights and anticipates the importance of these themes as key virtues for Matthew. No attempt will be made to address fully each theme; my purpose is… A free download of this chapter is available on our website, click here!

A quiet night in with poetry, mysticism and negligence.

As the wind roars outside the windows and summer staggers to an end, why not cozy up with a cup of tea and a good thought-provoking book? From an in-depth study of the poetry of John Donne to a historical dissection of the Georgian Church and a classic introduction to Christian mysticism from the early Church to the present day, we have something for everyone on offer (!) at James Clarke & Co.

You already know their names: St. Paul, St. Augustine of Hippo, St.Francis of Assisi, Catherine of Siena, so why not learn what set these great men and women apart from the average church-goer and discover how their influence has shaped the Church throughout history? Evelyn Underhill’s Mystics of the Church explores not only the historical development of Christian mysticism and its role in the Church, but also provides fascinating insight in the spiritual growth of the individual mystics, their struggles, achievements and influence. Underhill illuminates the whole of her subject by drawing attention to the differences of approach that can bring a man along the road to the divine, from the zealous militancy of a Loyola to the passivity of the Quietists. Add some mystic inspiration to your life for only £20.00 £18.00!

Literature and Sacrament: The Sacred and the Secular in John Donne by Theresa M. DiPasquale is the perfect evening read for a lover of English literature. This elegant and scholarly study places Donne’s secular and religious poetry in the context of 17th-century popular culture and the Reformation debate on the Christian sacraments. DiPasquale sheds new light on the poetics of the period, as well as giving fresh and detailed readings of Donne’s poems. Enjoy an adept and engaging study of one of the greatest poets in the English language for a mere £52.50 £47.25!

Or if you prefer a riveting account of a rather over-looked historical period, try The Church in an Age of Negligence: Ecclesiastical Structure and Problems of Church Reform 1700-1840 by Peter Virgin. Using the same methods employed by pioneering psycho-historian Lewis Bernstein Namier to dissect 18th-century politics, Virgin provides a comprehensive understanding of the status of the clergy in Georgian society. In his exploration of ecclesiastical structure, incorporating tithe income, patronage, pluralism, non-residence and the numerous problems of church reform, Virgin overturns orthodoxies and puts forward a series of original and challenging views of the Georgian Church. Discover, or rediscover, a fascinating period of English history for £52.50 £47.25!
