John Barclay explores Pauline theology anew from the perspective of grace. Arguing that Paul's theology of grace is best approached in light of ancient notions of "gift," Barclay describes Paul's relationship to Judaism in a fresh way. Barclay focuses on divine gift-giving, which for Paul, he says, is focused and fulfilled in the gift of Christ. He both offers a new appraisal of Paul's theology of the Christ-event as gift as it comes to expression in Galatians and Romans and presents a nuanced and detailed consideration of the history of reception of Paul, including Augustine, Luther, Calvin, and Barth.

Paul and the Gift changed the landscape of Pauline studies forever upon its publication in 2015. In it, John Barclay led readers through a recontextualized analysis of grace and interrogated Paul’s original meaning in declaring it a “free gift” from God, revealing grace as a multifaceted concept that is socially radical and unconditioned—even if not unconditional. Paul and the Power of Grace offers all of the most significant contributions from Paul and the Gift in a package several hundred pages lighter and more accessible. Additionally, Barclay adds further analysis of the theme of gift and grace in Paul’s other letters and explores contemporary implications for this new view of grace.
Perfect for those in the medical field or those looking for a firsthand look into the mystery of pain, this book will give you a new perspective on the gift that none of us want and none of us can do without.
Author: Paul Brand
A WORLD WITHOUT PAIN? Can such a place exist? It not only can--it does. But it's no utopia. It's a colony for leprosy patients: a world where people literally feel no pain, and reap horrifying consequences. His work with leprosy patients in India and the United States convinced Dr. Paul Brand that pain truly is one of God's great gifts to us. In this inspiring story of his fifty-year career as a healer, Dr. Brand probes the mystery of pain and reveals its importance. As an indicator that lets us know something is wrong, pain has a value that becomes clearest in its absence. The Gift of Pain looks at what pain is and why we need it. Together, the renowned surgeon and award-winning writer Philip Yancey shed fresh light on a gift that none of us want and none of us can do without.

Men have constructed a world of things in which people suffer, believing themselves manipulated like one more machine. Paul Tournier argues that this is a situation in which women can make a decisive contribution.

Our Western civilization is masculine and dominated by masculine values: cold objectivity, reason, power, efficiency and competition. This means the suppression of other values in the sphere of irrationality and subjectivity: sentiments, emotions, personal relationships. It is no coincidence that women have been rejected from public life and culture and relegated all too often to the home. This situation has given rise to the enormous contrast between the great powers of science and technology and the decline in the quality of life. Men are interested in things and mechanisms, women in people. Men have constructed a world of things in which people suffer, believing themselves manipulated like one more machine. Paul Tournier argues that this is a situation in which women can make a decisive contribution. For a century they have struggled to take their places in civilization. In order to do so however, they have had to adapt to fit a masculine society. They have proved capable of that, but could they not go on from there to cure our civilization of its malaise and introduce what is missing, a sense of the person? This is the question asked by this book. As in Dr Tournier's previous books, it is not raised in a theoretical way but concretely, through his own experiences, in his personal life, in his marriage and his long career as a counsellor during which he has heard so many confidences about feminine discontent.

English summary: In historical, exegetical and hermeneutical studies, the authors of this work interpret New Testament statements about finality as opposed to everything which is temporary. At the same time, the various eschatological concepts shed light on basic theological decisions. In all of these texts, the relationship between eschatological concepts and the Christ event is the key factor. The understanding of time and history in view of the end of these, the question of the resurrection and the last judgment, the final reconciliation, communion with God's community as well as of the current dynamic eschatological existence are subjects which are associated with this. Against the backdrop of religious and tradition history, these studies deal with the individual, universal and cosmic dimensions of eschatology and in doing shed light upon their theological significance. German description: Die Autoren des vorliegenden Bandes interpretieren in historischen, exegetischen und hermeneutischen Untersuchungen Aussagen des Neuen Testaments uber das Endgultige gegenuber allem Vorlaufigen. Die verschiedenen eschatologischen Vorstellungen erhellen zugleich theologische Grundentscheidungen. In allen diesen Texten ist das Verhaltnis eschatologischer Vorstellungen zum Christusgeschehen entscheidend. Das Verstandnis der Zeit und der Geschichte mit Blick auf ihr Ende, die Frage nach der Auferstehung und nach dem Gericht, nach der endgultigen Versohnung und der Gottesgemeinschaft sowie nach der spannungsreichen gegenwartigen eschatologischen Existenz sind damit verbundene Themen. Die individuellen, die universalen und die kosmischen Dimensionen der Eschatologie werden vor ihrem traditions- und religionsgeschichtlichen Hintergrund so entfaltet, dass ihre theologische Bedeutung erhellt wird.
