Christianity in the twenty-first century is a global phenomenon. But in the second century, its future was not at all certain. Michael Kruger's introductory survey examines how Christianity took root in the second century, how it battled to stay true to the vision of the apostles, and how it developed in ways that would shape both the church and Western culture over the next two thousand years.

This book examines key issues in Christianity from various philosophical points of view. It brings together European authors with American theologians and philosophers on an interconfessional basis. Coverage combines analytical and continental approaches in a unique way. This comprehensive, innovative analysis will help readers gain a deep understanding into a wide range of philosophical approaches to basic Christian problems. The novelty of this volume is the unique combination of philosophical and theological approaches. It merges these points-of-view in a rational manner which characterizes segments of Anglo-American and Continental thought. The scope of the work covers historical issues, contemporary problems of atheism, and also novel approaches to fundamental notions. Readers will learn about questions surrounding the French New Theology, Zizek’s philosophical sources, the notion of revelation, and much more. As a work produced by European and United States scholars, this volume is an important contribution not only to the dialogue between various academic cultures, but also to the expression of their fruitful cooperation which grounds and inspires serious academic research. The readership of this work begins at an undergraduate level and reaches up to academic researchers and professors interested in borderline problems between philosophy and theology, history and contemporary issues.

This book is a faith-based, heartfelt exposition of the Bible truth. It investigates the translational environment of the leading English versions of the Bible and their guiding sources; the age of our universe; the color lineage of Jesus; the role of Africa in the life and ministry of Jesus Christ; and the invisible war at the crossroads of life. It interrogates the intrusions and fundamentality of racism in Christianity in a manner that is at once critical, engaging and persuasive. It shows how such problems stem from the different versions and translations of the holy book that have deliberately sought to present God and His only begotten son Jesus Christ in a Caucasian manner.

Eastern Christianity

Eastern Christianity

This volume aims to be a useful tool by offering a synthesis of the research investigations and methodological approaches on Eastern Christianity as a crossroads of cultures.

Eastern Christianity is pluralistic. How might exchanges among Christians in geographic areas where different expressions of Christianity developed in the ancient Near and Middle East have been determining factors in the evolution of specific Churches? Encounters among Christians during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages resulted in fertile adaptations and enrichments leading, through mutations and cross-influences, to the emergence of new identities. Such interculturality provides a response to the challenges of the dominating Byzantine, Persian, and Arabic cultures, as expressed through intellectual currents, artistic influences, and constructions of traditions. The selected articles presented here, several updated by their authors, have marked the field of Eastern Christian studies in recent decades. The comparative approach enables the reader to better grasp the exceptional impact of the cultural contacts among Christians in the East. This volume aims to be a useful tool by offering a synthesis of the research investigations and methodological approaches on Eastern Christianity as a crossroads of cultures.

The art of interpreting Holy Scriptures flourished throughout the culturally heterogeneous pre-modern Orient among Jews, Christians and Muslims. Different ways of interpretation developed within each religion not without considering the others. How were the interactions and how productive were they for the further development of these traditions? Have there been blurred spaces of scholarly activity that transcended sectarian borders? What was the role played by mutual influences in profiling the own tradition against the others? These and other related questions are critically treated in the present volume.

This volume illumines the discussion being carried on between the religious right with its concern for moral responsibility in politics and the issue-oriented activists who are concerned with how Christians in America address human-rights and hunger issues. By bringing together both Christian scholars and activists from nearly all points of the political continuum, this book offers a rare glimpse into the reality of Christian diversity on the political task. The media often suggests a monist interpretation of 'Christian politics.' This book shows both the vitality and plurality of Christian politics in America. The book covers the historical background, activist perspectives, organizational structures, and participant characteristics with essays by Frank Roberts, David O'Brien, Ruth Tucker, James Reichley, Delton Franz, Betty Coats, Lucille Taylor, Bruce Buursma, Robert Zwier, Allen Hertzke, James Guth, Lyman Kellstedt, Corwin Smidt, Stephen Monsma and concludes with a suggestion of a new direction by James Skillen of the Association for Public Justice.
