"What has been needed for a long time is someone sufficiently attuned to George MacDonald to undertake the careful editing necessary to make his provocative, content-packed sermons accessible to the thoughtful reader. Rolland Hein has done this task with extraordinary success. Here are more than thirty sermons made vitally alive for the contemporary reader." -E. Beatrice BatsonWheaton College "Here holiness is presented as so beautiful and necessary that we covet it as a man dying of thirst covets water. I know of no other writer with a greater capacity to make faith real as the air we breathe, rich with the secrets of Paradise for which we would willingly break out hearts." -Robert Siege, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Rolland Hein is Professor of English at Wheaton College, where he has taught since 1970. He has had a lifelong interest in George MacDonald's writings, having edited several volumes of his sermons. He is also the author of George MacDonald: Victorian Mythmaker, a biography based on the letters of MacDonald and his family, The Harmony Within: the Spiritual Vision of George MacDonald, and Christian Mythmakers.

Christ The Heart Of Creation

Author : Rowan Williams

In this wide-ranging book, Rowan Williams argues that what we say about Jesus Christ is key to understanding what Christian belief says about creator and creation overall. Through detailed discussion of texts from the earliest centuries to the present day, we are shown some of the various and subtle ways in which Christians have discovered in their reflections on Christ the possibility of a deeply affirmative approach to creation, and a set of radical insights in ethics and politics as well. Throughout his life, Rowan Williams has been deeply influenced by thinkers of the Eastern Christian tradition as well as Catholic and Anglican writers. This book draws on insights from Eastern Christianity, from the Western Middle Ages and from Reformed thinkers, from Calvin to Bonhoeffer – as well as considering theological insights sparked by philosophers like Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein. Christ the Heart of Creation concerns fundamental issues for Christian belief and Williams tackles them head-on: he writes with pellucid clarity and shows his gift for putting across what are inevitably complex ideas to a wide audience.

A steadfast faith is built on the firm foundation of God's Word. For decades, this pattern of teaching has helped men and women around the world gain a clear understanding of God, man's relationship with Him, and the grace He has made freely available through the death of His Son. Many teachers have successfully used these lessons from the previous version in churches, classroom and small groups. Firm Foundations: Creation to Christ presents in order key teachings about: God's nature and character; Man's sinful state and separation from God; God's grace, presence and activity through history; Christ as the promised Redeemer. Moving from Genesis through the life of Christ, your students will see God's plan of redemption unfold. They'll follow God's pattern of progressively revealing His character. This study series uses the New King James Bible translation. - Publisher.

Paul And The Creation Of Christian Identity

In the dominant interpretation of the Antioch incident Paul is viewed as separating from Peter and Jewish Christianity to lead his own independent mission which was eventually to triumph in the creation of a church with a gentile identity. Paul's gentile mission, however, represented only one strand of the Christ movement but has been universalized to signify the whole. The consequence of this view of Paul is that the earliest diversity in which he operated and which he affirmed has been anachronistically diminished almost to the point of obliteration. There is little recognition of the Jewish form of Christianity and that Paul by and large related positively to it as evidenced in Romans 14-15. Here Paul acknowledges Jewish identity as an abiding reality rather than as a temporary and weak form of faith in Christ. This book argues that diversity in Christ was fundamental to Paul and that particularly in his ethical guidance this received recognition. Paul's relation to Judaism is best understood not as a reaction to his former faith but as a transformation resulting from his vision of Christ. In this the past is not obliterated but transformed and thus continuity is maintained so that the identity of Christianity is neither that of a new religion nor of a Jesus cult. In Christ the past is reconfigured and thus the diversity of humanity continues within the church, which can celebrate the richness of differing identities under the Lordship of Christ.

Co Creators With God

The concept of co-creation with God has only been hinted at throughout the centuries. Every now and then something close to this teaching would arise, and mainstream religion would crush it out, often with swift and brutal violence. To these religionists, humanity was to be viewed as powerless and dependent on the religious institutions and systems for their power. To expect any power with God was viewed as pure heresy. God has not left you alone in this world to be tossed about to and fro by chance and circumstances. You can live the life that you desire to live once you learn how to become a co-creator with God! Co-creation with God is something that every person can do since they are created in the image and likeness of God. Co-creation with God is something that every person can do since they are created in the image and likeness of God, but this knowledge has been kept away from most people. This keeps the common person in a perpetual state of creating a life they do not want to be living, and yet they believe that they are the hopeless victims of circumstances which they have no control over. This book will reveal how this is not the case and how you can take control of your life, align yourself with God through Christ Jesus, and begin to co-create with God!

The relation, the connection, between Christ and creation is the subject of this book, which author Colin Gunton describes as a summary dogmatic christology. Central to Gunton's christology are a strong incarnation-creation link and the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Constituting the published version of the 1990 Didsbury Lectures delivered by Gunton at British Isles Nazarene College, 'Christ and Creation' offers thought-provoking reflections on major theological themes and realities: creation, redemption, the Trinity, horizontal and vertical relatedness; Christ's incarnation, virgin birth, passion, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension; election, freedom, the Kingdom of God, and the church. Weaving pneumatological, teleological, eschatological, anthropological, and ecological strands into his christology, Gunton draws from and interacts with a wide range of theologians, from ancient to modern - Paul, Irenaeus, Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Calvin, Schleiermacher, Barth, Moltmann, Pannenberg, Thomas Torrance, John Robinson, and many others.

Christ in Creation examines the life of Christ as it is presented in the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). With both a devotional and academic tone, this book examines how Jesus fulfilled the patterns and prophecies provided to us in the Old Testament, and it explains the historical circumstances and tremendous significance of his birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension. It develops his teachings and miracles, and examines the key concepts that were essential aspects of his ministry on earth. Most importantly, it explains his very purpose in entering the world - to humbly lay down his life in pursuit of his beloved children.
