There is little doubt that the inerrancy of the Bible is a current and often contentious topic among evangelicals. Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy represents a timely contribution by showcasing the spectrum of evangelical positions on inerrancy, facilitating understanding of these perspectives, particularly where and why they diverge. Each essay in Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy considers: the present context and the viability and relevance for the contemporary evangelical Christian witness; whether and to what extent Scripture teaches its own inerrancy; the position’s assumed/implied understandings of the nature of Scripture, God, and truth; and three difficult biblical texts, one that concerns intra-canonical contradictions, one that raises questions of theological plurality, and one that concerns historicity. Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy serves not only as a single-volume resource for surveying the current debate, but also as a catalyst both for understanding and advancing the conversation further. Contributors include Al Mohler, Kevin Vanhoozer, Michael Bird, Peter Enns, and John Franke.

No issue is more divisive or more pressing for the church today than homosexuality. Two Views on Homosexuality, the Bible, and the Church brings a fresh perspective to a well-worn debate. While Christian debates about homosexuality are most often dominated by biblical exegesis, this book seeks to give much-needed attention to the rich history of received Christian tradition, bringing the Bible into conversation with historical and systematic theology. To that end, both theologians and biblical scholars—well accomplished in their fields and conversant in issues of sexuality and gender—articulate and defend each of the two views: Affirming view William Loader Megan K. DeFranza Traditional view Wesley Hill Stephen R. Holmes Unique among most debates on homosexuality, this book presents a constructive dialogue between people who disagree on significant ethical and theological matters, and yet maintain a respectful and humanizing posture toward one another. Even as these scholars articulate pointed arguments for their position with academic rigor and depth, they do so cordially, clearly, and compassionately, without demeaning the other. The main essays are followed by exceptionally insightful responses and rejoinders that interact with their fellow essayists with convicted civility. Holding to a high view of Scripture, a commitment to the gospel and the church, and a love for people—especially those most affected by this topic—the contributors wrestle deeply with the Bible and theology, especially the prohibition texts, the role of procreation, gender complementarity, and pastoral accommodation. The book concludes with general editor Preston Sprinkle’s reflections on the future of discussions on faith and sexuality.

Contributors and views include: Denny Burk: Eternal Conscious Torment John Stackhouse: Annihilationism (Conditional Immortality) Robin Parry: Universalism (Ultimate Reconciliation) Jerry Walls: Purgatory Preston Sprinkle concludes the discussion by evaluating each view, noting significant points of exchange between the essayists. The interactive nature of the volume allows the reader to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of each view and come to an informed conclusion.

Kritik Der Bibelkritik

Wenn aus dem biblischen Gott eine Idee wird, eine Vorstellung, und aus der Heiligen Schrift ein bloßes Buch - was geschieht dann? Dann ist die Folge, dass im Umgang mit der Bibel in Predigt, Konfi rmanden- und Schulunterricht ein hohes Maß an Willkür vorherrscht. Liegt das an der historisch-kritischen Exegese? Ja und nein. Ja - denn die biblischen Texte werden uns durch diese Art der Auslegung fremd und verlieren ihre Lebendigkeit, sodass es eines wachsenden Spielraums eigener Phantasie bedarf, um die Kluft zwischen ihrem damaligen Sinn und einem für uns heute annehmbaren Sinn zu überbrücken. Nein - denn der christliche Glaube hat seine Grundlage in der Geschichte Gottes mit uns Menschen. Und weil diese Geschichte im Alten und Neuen Testament bezeugt wird, muss sie in der Auslegung der Bibel auch historisch ernst genommen werden. Ulrich Wilckens stellt sich daher der Aufgabe, die Rede von Gott von der Ebene religiöser Subjektivität auf die Ebene der objektiven Wirklichkeit Gottes des biblischen Zeugnisses zu transportieren. Dazu hilft vor allem das Ernstnehmen der alttestamentlichen Gotteserfahrung in der Geschichte seines Handelns mit Israel. Unter diesem Aspekt gewinnt sodann das neutestamentlich bezeugte Heilsgeschehen in Jesus Christus einen überzeugenden Sinn. Dieser ist, historisch ausgelegt, der gemeinsame Horizont aller zentralen Glaubensaussagen in den verschiedenen Schriften des Neuen Testaments, ihrer Verfasser und der Sprache des Gottesdienstes der urchristlichen Gemeinden. In der katholischen Weltkirche beginnt im Herbst 2012 ein »Jahr des Glaubens«. Da sie seit dem zweiten Vatikanischen Konzil die Heilige Schrift als Fundament des Glaubens und Quelle allen Lebens der Kirche herausstellt, ist eine gemeinsame evangelisch-katholische Bemühung um eine gründliche Überwindung der der Exegese seit der Aufklärung anhaftenden theologischen Problematik ökumenisch durchaus aussichtsreich. Dazu will das vorliegende Buch seinen Beitrag leisten.

Published in 1952, Paul Tillich’s (1886–1965) seminal work The Courage to Be is among his most important writings, and it established his reputation outside of academic theology. In this book, he summarized in concise form the core themes of his overall theology, reformulating the notion of faith as “the courage to be” while also furnishing a re-interpretation of modern society.
