Rieger offers an enlightening way to understand the chief strands or options in theology today and a valuable proposal for resituating theology around the crucial issue of inclusion. He sees four competing vectors at work in Christian today's theology: Theology of Identity, Theology of Difference, Theology and the Postmodern and Theology and the Underside.

The Tension Between God as Righteous Judge and as Merciful in Early Judaism

Author: Barry D. Smith

Publisher: University Press of America

In recent years, the scholarly consensus has emerged that early Judaism should no longer be classified as a religion of legalistic works on righteousness, but rather defined primarily by God's covenant with Israel. In this work, it is argued, instead, that there is actually a tension in early Judaism between God as righteous judge and as merciful. As E. Sjoberg maintained in his Gott und Sunder im palastinischen Judentum, in the sources used for a reconstruction of early Judaism, there are two mutually exclusive ways in which God is said to relate to human beings. First, God as righteous judge deals with human beings as they deserve. They are assumed to be morally free and responsible, and God judges and recompenses them in history and eschatologically. Not only are the wicked punished for their sins, but the righteous are also rewarded for their obedience. And second, God as merciful does not deal with human beings as they deserve. Rather, he removes the guilt resulting from disobedience to the Law, sometimes on the simple condition of repentance. This means that a person can escape the consequences of disobedience. The understanding of God in the sources vacillates between God as righteous judge and God as merciful, without coming down definitively on one side to the exclusion of the other."

No Longer the Same

Religious Others and the Liberation of Christian Theology

Author: D. Brockman

This volume addresses what happens to Christian theology when it follows its traditional habit of excluding religious others from the theological conversation. It argues that the exclusion of non-Christian voices blinds Christian theology not only to its own character, but also to the God to whom it seeks to be faithful.

The Gospel of Grace for Wounded Sojourners

Sermonic Reflections on Hope in Christ

In this collection of sermons, Dr. Albert Walsh, after more than three decades of pastoral ministry, presents the gospel message as the Christ-centered proclamation of hope for all those who sojourn along the path of life. Walsh's sermons speak directly to those who hold faith in Christ, but they also speak with force to those who are searching for the meaning and purpose of life as the gift of a gracious God. This collection of sermons offers the reader a word of genuine hope in times of trial, struggle, and in the face of the innumerable sufferings--both small and great--we so often experience in life. These sermons cover the whole of the life of Christ from his incarnation to his death, resurrection, ascension, and promised return in glory to offer spiritual enrichment for all.

Freedom, God, and Worlds

Michael J. Almeida presents a powerful argument which holds that several widely believed and largely undisputed principles against the existence of God are in fact just philosophical dogmas. He challenges some of the most well-entrenched principles in philosophical theology, which have served as basic assumptions in influential apriori, atheological arguments, and argues that they present no important challenge to the existence of an Anselmian God. Not only arethese philosophical principles false, they are necessarily false.
