Christ of the Celts "I explore the Celtic image of Christ as the Memory of what we have forgotten. He remembers the dance of the universe and the harmony that is deep within all things. He is the Memory also of who we are." --from the Prelude "Diagnosing the human soul with a longing for peace in the face of fear and fragmentation nurtured by global political forces and fundamentalisms, Newell offers the ancient traditions of Celtic Christianity as a way forward in healing humankind and the earth." --Publishers Weekly "This graceful, wise, and important book is a superb introduction to the treasures of Celtic Christianity for our time." --Marcus Borg, author, The Heart of Christianity

Contending that many of our contemporary negative preoccupations with physical appearance, image, and sexuality derive from the denial of the notion that we were created in God's image, the author uses Old Testament Wisdom literature to show that the human body, like creation, is actually the dwelling place of God, explaining that ancient texts challenge modern assumptions about love, beauty, and sexuality.

Rethinking Our Story

Can We Be Christian in the Quantum Era?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. But it's no secret that the Christian church is broke, and does need fixing. Despite great effort, things are going badly for us. We've tried trendy and tech-savvy, entrepreneurial and coffee-house gritty. They're not helping. Our problem is deeper than that. Our problem is our instincts--instincts informed by our story. There was a time when the Christian church was a powerfully transformative presence in society. It can be again--but it will require radical rethinking of the story that informs our instincts. And it's time! It's been five hundred years since the Reformation, our last major update. Today is a pivotal moment in history. With our worldview upended by quantum physics, history is demanding we renew the Christian story for our times. Rethinking Our Story reframes the elements of the Christian narrative for the new era. It explores quantum ways of thinking about God, human nature, Jesus, salvation, and the afterlife. The future of the church and the health of our society depend on our willingness to rethink, retell, and live out a better story. We will either update our instincts and contribute to the earth's well-being--or disappear into oblivion.

In einer Phase von Selbstzweifeln und Depression gerät Emmanuel Carrère in eine Krise des Unglaubens. Er wendet sich dem Christentum zu und versucht, sich zum Glauben zu überzeugen. Nach einer Zeit der intensiven Auseinandersetzung mit den Ursprüngen des Christentums und dem Versuch, konsequent den christlichen Idealen zu folgen, gerät er in eine zweite Krise, eine Krise des Glaubens. In radikaler Ehrlichkeit stellt sich der vernunft- und psychoanalysegeprägte Pariser Intellektuelle der Gretchenfrage und der eigenen Tradition : Was bedeutet uns der Glaube, was uns persönlich und was unserer Gesellschaft ? Um dieser Frage auf den Grund zu gehen, vertieft er sich in die Anfänge des Christentums, er findet Identifikationsfiguren in Paulus, dem Revolutionär, Lukas, dem Intellektuellen und fragt nach der Kraft, mit der es ihnen gelang, etwas zu glauben, was niemand sonst glaubte und eine so machtvolle Tradition zu begründen. Er bringt diese überaus fesselnde frühe Geschichte des Christentums, voll politischer und gesellschaftlicher Unruhen und Intrigen, dem Leser so nahe, dass dieser unmittelbar herausgefordert wird, sein eigenes Verhältnis zur Tradition und zum Glauben zu hinterfragen. Carrère gelingt es in diesem einzigartigen und brisanten Buch, seine eigene Lebens- und Glaubensgeschichte mit der historischen Handlung zu verweben und den Leser mit den unendlichen Facetten des Glaubens und Nichtglaubens zu konfrontieren. Ob ablehnend oder bejahend : An den Fragen des Glaubens kommt heute niemand vorbei.

Remembering the Faith of My Forebears

In a time when organized religion is suffering an identity crisis, the author of The Last Presbyterian? examines the faith culture that shaped him and his family over the last half millennium. Filled with historical, theological, and spiritual reflections and set in the context of both old family stories and current trends, Cuthbertson's book addresses such timely issues as practicing faith within families, setting aside time for God, and the changing facets of leadership and discipleship within the Presbyterian tradition. Starting with the Psalm-singing, Sabbath-keeping, Shorter-Catechism-memorizing branches of Scots-American Presbyterianism, this book offers an affectionate look back, and a hopeful look ahead, to an emergent Presbyterianism coming to terms with issues such as LGBT ordination and same-gender marriage, interfaith relations, and care for the earth.

A Celtic Christology

The Incarnation according to John Scottus Eriugena

Author: John F. Gavin

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1630873896

Category: Religion

Page: 178

View: 4057

John Scottus Eriugena, the brilliant and controversial Irishman in the court of Charles the Bald (823-877), the grandson of Charlemagne, drew upon both the Latin and Greek patristic traditions in order to present a bold and original Christian vision. A philosopher, theologian, translator, poet, and mystic, he may be considered the ideal Carolingian Renaissance man. This volume examines his understanding of the Incarnation, the enfleshment of the Word. On the one hand, Eriugena's Christology creatively appropriates traditional categories in order to explain God's philanthropia in creating, sustaining, and restoring the cosmos. On the other hand, it also provides a guide for the believer's mystical participation in the life of Jesus and return to divine union. This brilliant intellectual from the so-called Dark Ages offers much to inspire, and perhaps even to startle, contemporary theologians, philosophers, and believers who ponder the mystery of the God-made-flesh.

Like an underground river, the monastic tradition keeps on resurging in a host of unexpected times and places. Secular Monasticism, A Journey describes one of its most recent incarnations. The founders and members of the Lindisfarne Community share with us their bold attempt to be a secular monastic religious order open to the exigencies of the contemporary world. Age-old wisdom once again reveals its perennial relevance in helping us learn how to be followers of Christ in Gods today. Brother John, Taiz In the first five pages, I thought of ten people I know who should read this book: young people, old people, all people tired of taken-for-granted spirituality. Devour this book. Let it help you dream up a way of joining or creating a micro-community of prayer and action that frees you to experiment in following the ways of Christ. Thats what these folks have done. This story helps us imagine ourselves out of the boxes and buildings Christianity has become. The Rev. Dr. Dori Baker, Scholar-in-Residence, The Fund for Theological Education Lindisfarne Community has graciously accepted Gods call to dance with the radical (and sometimes wearying) changes of our time. Like the Celts, they find meaning in their ongoing spiritual evolution through poetry and story, through a willingness to navigate the waters of the soul while remaining fiercely loyal to the good earth that bore us and nurtures us. Like the Celts, this family of secular monastics hungers more for mystical union with the Divine Mystery than for any trappings of earthly renown or success.

Salvation Means Creation Healed

The Ecology of Sin and Grace: Overcoming the Divorce between Earth and Heaven

The Bible promises the renewal of all creation--a new heaven and earth--based on the incarnation, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For centuries this promise has been sidelined or misunderstood because of the church's failure to grasp the full meaning of biblical teachings on creation and new creation. The Bible tells the story of the broken and restored relationship between God, people, and land, not just God and people. This is the full gospel, and it has the power to heal the church's long theological divorce between earth and heaven. Jesus' resurrection in the power of the Holy Spirit is the key, and the church as Christ's body is the primary means by which God is reconciling all things through Jesus Christ. Jesus' ultimate healing of all creation is the great hope and promise of the gospel, and he calls the church to be his healing community now through evangelism, discipleship, and prophetic mission.
