The Theological Garden of the Twentieth century is a variegated spectacle of blooms - more so perhaps than any previous Christian century. As the century approaches its close, the time is right for surveying, describing, evaluating, and even projecting what seeds might germinate, grow and blossom in the soil of a new millennium. Stanley Grenz and Roger Olson have written a sympathetic guide and critical assessment of the significant theologians and theologies of the twentieth century. Beginning with the Enlightenment and the foundations of twentieth-century theology in Kant, Schleiermacher, Hegel and Ritschl, the giants in twentieth-century theology are then brought up for review: Barth, Bultmann, Brunner, Tillich, Niebuhr, Rahner, Kung, Moltmann and Pannenberg. In addition, the influential movements of radical, process, liberation, Black, feminist, narrative and evangelical theology come under scrutiny and critical evaluation.

Answers to 40 of the most common and difficult questions about baptism and communion
Appropriate for the student and thoughtful layperson, "40 Questions About Baptism and the Lord's Supper" answers forty of the most common and most difficult questions about the two Protestant ordinances. There is significant diversity of views on these subjects and the skilled, evenhanded biblical analysis sheds lights on the many theological and pastoral considerations regarding baptism and communion.
Baptism and the Lord's Supper are practiced by almost all Christian churches, but they disagree on the meaning, proper participants, even the proper names for these observances. This book includes the major theological issues (such as infant baptism, open and closed communion, and the nature of God's activity in these celebrations), the views held by different denominations (from Roman Catholic to Lutheran, Reformed, Baptist, and others), and a number of practical issues (such as the proper age at which to baptize a child, the frequency with which the Lord's Supper should be observed, and whether these two practices should be observed only in churches).
This volume will be helpful to pastors, worship leaders, college and seminary students, and of interest to all Christians who want to grow in their understanding of these two basic Christian acts of worship. Each chapter is succinct and readable, with footnotes indicating additional sources for those who wish to go further.

50 years ago a small, brand new Christian College relocated to a field in west St. Louis County, Missouri. It was moved there from Pasadena, California under the guidance of Robert G. Rayburn. Rayburn's burning passion was that everything taught should be to Jesus' glory. He also knew that his fledgling denomination, Bible Presbyterian Church, Columbus Synod, would need ministers.So, alongside Covenant College was founded Covenant Theological Seminary. The seminary hymn, sung every year since 1956, is 'All for Jesus'. It is a fitting reminder of the Seminary's aims.A lot has changed since then. Covenant College has since moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where it has become a leading Liberal Arts college with a respected academic reputation. Covenant Seminary has remained in St. Louis through many denominational name changes and mergers - first serving the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, then the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod and now the Presbyterian Church in America.Dr. Rayburn stepped down from his position of President in 1977, and has been succeeded by three men, yet two things remain at the heart of the institution - firstly, they train ministers of the gospel and secondly, they seek to do it 'all for Jesus'.This collection of writings to celebrate the last 50 years was not just put together to highlight current cutting-edge research, expand certain theological perspectives or stir the pot on the latest theological issues - it is put together to emphasise the Christ-centered focus of the mission and calling of Covenant Theological Seminary.In it's contents you will find many fascinating subjects expanded upon with wit and perspicacity. Not only will you learn new things - but you will celebrate them profoundly.

Recent theology offers few attempts to come to grips with the meaning and implications of the ascension of Jesus. Ascension and Ecclesia promises to refocus attention on this crucial Christian doctrine. Douglas Bryce Farrow begins with a discussion of the biblical treatment of the ascension and eucharistic celebration, from which emerges the unique ecclesial worldview. Succeeding chapters explore the link between the ascension, cosmology, and ecclesiology and examine the difficulties faced by the doctrine of ascension in our modern scientific world.

BEFORE GOD

Many Christians today have experienced a loss of enormous significance - they no longer understand their daily lives to be lived before God. This timely work traces the development and implications of this loss and argues for its recovery. In comparing contemporary Christians with believers of previous eras, author George Stroup sees an eclipse of life lived before God. This eclipse is tragic because the Bible presupposes human life as a daily, personal relationship with God. Stroup here offers help by exploring anew the biblical view that Jesus Christ models most clearly what life lived before God and neighbor looks like. He then suggests that describing Christian life as gratitude naturally evokes a sense of life lived before God. The book concludes by examining whether life before God requires a sense of God's presence - and whether it is possible to live before God even in those times when he seems to be absent. Offering thought-provoking analysis of modern faith and sound direction for spiritual renewal, Before God is perfect for churches, study groups, pastors, and individuals pursuing genuine discipleship.

BETWEEN CROSS & RESURRECTION

For much of Christian history the church has given no place to Holy Saturday in its liturgy or worship. Yet the space dividing Calvary and the Garden may be the best place from which to reflect on the meaning of Christ's death and resurrection. This superb work by the late Alan Lewis develops on a grand scale and in great detail a theology of Holy Saturday.The first comprehensive theology of Holy Saturday ever written, "Between Cross and Resurrection"shows that at the center of the biblical story and the church's creed lies a"three"-day narrative. Lewis explores the meaning of Holy Saturday -- the restless day of burial and waiting -- from the perspectives of narrative (hearing the story), doctrine (thinking the story), and ethics (living the story). Along the way he visits as many spiritual themes as possible in order to demonstrate the range of topics that take on fresh meaning when viewed from the vantage point of Holy Saturday."Between Cross and Resurrection"is not only incisive and elegantly written, but it is also a uniquely moving work deeply rooted in Christian experience. While writing this book Lewis experienced his own Holy Saturday in suffering from and finally succumbing to cancer. He considered"Between Cross and Resurrection"to be the culmination of his life's work."

In "Blessed Rage for Order, " David Tracy examines the cultural context in which theological pluralism emerged. Analyzing orthodox, liberal, neo-orthodox, and radical models of theology, Tracy formulates a new 'revisionist' model. He considers which methods promise the most certain results for a revisionist theology and applies his model to the principal questions in contemporary theology, including the meanings of religion, theism, and of christology.
