This theological interpretation demonstrates the covenantal assumptions that underlie Paul's theology and Christology. It offers a unique view of Romans and Paul that avoids two previous major problems: the anti-Jewish polemic of much Protestant interpretation of Paul, and recent post-Holocaust reaction by Gaston, Gager, and others who deny tension between Paul and the Torah.

A top leadership theorist offers a compelling proposal for renovating the way religious education is practiced today. Christian colleges and seminaries have not been immune from the cultural influences shaping contemporary education. Challenging the conventional wisdom advanced by the educational debate during the last fifteen years, Robert Banks builds an innovative new model of theological education based on how ministry formation took place in biblical times. Banks takes full account of key issues raised by our current educational context and shows how a "missional model" of education is more holistic, inclusive, and practical than recent versions.

Work has become for many people the central reference point in their lives and the main consumer of their time and energy. Whether people have much or little money is what much of life revolves around. There is an implicit theology in everyone's attitude to and handling of work. This book looks at the relationship between God and the marketplace, at work as a spiritual discipline, and at how to handle some of the main pressures and dilemmas that arise in a work setting. The combined wisdom of dozens of experts makes this volume a great place to start thinking about how Christians should approach subjects such as: . ADVERTISING . BUSINESS ETHICS. COMPETITION . COMPROMISE . CONTRACTS . CREDIT. DEBT. FIRING . GOSSIP . INSURANCE . INTEGRITY . INVESTMENT . LEADERSHIP . LOYALTY . MANAGEMENT . NEGOTIATING . NETWORKING. OFFICE POLITICS . PROMOTION . RETIREMENT .

Individual And Community In Paul S Letter To The Romans

Ben C. Dunson explores the relationship between individuals and community in Paul's letters. He begins with a treatment of scholarly views on the issue, paying special attention to the influential twentieth-century debate over the role of anthropology in Pauline thought that took place between Rudolf Bultmann and Ernst Kasemann, a debate that has greatly impacted the direction of current Pauline scholarship. Then, by comparing and contrasting Paul's thought with that of the Stoic philosopher Epictetus, he argues, by means of a typology of the individual in Romans, that the individual and community are tightly integrated concepts in Pauline thought, despite a dominant trend in Pauline scholarship of pitting communal themes against individual ones. He maintains that there is a rich diversity of ways of describing the individual in Romans, and furthermore, that central themes (faith, justification, church, etc.) in Paul's letters do not make sense unless individual and communal themes are seen in their inextricable unity.

Paul The Community And Progressive Sanctification

What role does the Christian community play in the process of growing in Christian maturity? This book argues that in Pauline theology the redeemed community is a necessary means for the progressive sanctification of the individual believer, an idea that is largely misunderstood in parts of the Western church. It evaluates foundational theological considerations traditionally omitted from sanctification studies and places them within the context of Pauline theology. Included are the missiological nature of holiness, the initiatory character of God, the creation of the new humanity as reflecting the image of God, and the impact upon the church resulting from the radical redefinition by Christ of the cultural symbols surrounding the Jewish temple system. This book offers a corrective to the individualized approach to Christian growth: For Paul, the focus of God’s transformative activity culminates with the community rather than the individual, the goal of which is to reveal God’s glory to the broader creation.
