Anglican Theology

$36.00

This book seeks to explain the ways in which Anglicans have sought to practise theology in their various contexts. It is a clear, insightful, and reliable guide which avoids technical jargon and roots its discussions in concrete examples. The book is primarily a work of historical theology, which engages deeply with key texts and writers from across the tradition (e.g. Cranmer, Jewel, Hooker, Taylor, Butler, Simeon, Pusey, Huntington, Temple, Ramsey, and many others). As well as being suitable for seminary courses, it will be of particular interest to study groups in parishes and churches, as well as to individuals who seek to gain a deeper insight into the traditions of Anglicanism. While it adopts a broad and unpartisan approach, it will also be provocative and lively.

Baptist Battles: Social Change and Religious Conflict in the Southern Baptist Convention

product image
$22.00
Winner, 1992 Distinguished Book Award, Society for the Scientific Study of Religion "With unbending fairness, Ammerman provides a historical and sociological context to unfold the historical events and issues that have dramatically changed the shape of Southern Baptists. A benchmark study of a religious body in conflict, this work is a leading authority on the present status of Southern Baptists."--Religious Studies Review "Nancy Ammerman knows . . . of the value and worth of the lives of people who operate in intact biblical-literal cultures. . . . She takes their conflicts seriously and tells us, without hitting us over the head, that we will have them all wrong--to our peril--if we do not listen. . . . Her narrative style is brisk, purposeful, and unadorned."--Martin E. Marty, University of Chicago "If only this sociological evaluation of Southern Baptist life could sell five million copies---Rutgers would be astonished, Ammerman would be basking at Club Med in Phuket, and I would be ecstatic. . . . Every movement conservative in the Southern Baptist fellowship should purchase two copies of this book."--Paige Patterson, President, Southeastern Theological Seminary, in Christianity Today "Ammerman explores the hurts and aspirations of both sides so evenhandedly that it may be difficult for all but the most die-hard partisans to guess which side is going to get the better seats in heaven."--The Christian Century "Analyzes fully the processes of the Fundamentalist takeover and their struggles as they begin to govern. Probably the best study available."--Choice "A splendid account of a decade of controversy. This readable volume surely ranks as the indispensable contemporary sociohistorical introduction to Southern Baptists."-- The Journal of Religion Nancy Tatom Ammerman is an associate professor of the sociology of religion at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University and the author of Bible Believers: Fundamentalists in the Modern World, and Congregation and Community: Sacred Spaces in Changing Urban Regions, both from Rutgers University Press.

Originally published in 1962 and revised in 1991, this practical volume has long been an invaluable resource to clergy, laity, and seminarians alike.

The Second Revised Edition features revisions in content and style and include a new foreword by current ABCUSA General Secretary Roy Medley, a new chapter on "Autonomy and Interdependence," and contemporary updates to the chapter on "Ecumenical Relationships."

Beyond Resistance: The Institutional Church Meets the Postmodern World

Sale 6% off

Beyond Resistance is a template for those devoted to the the idea that faith should be just, generous and inspire commitment to the common good. The rise of postmodernity and its influence on the expression of faith are not the cause of religion’s perceived diminishment in capacity, relevance, and impact. To the contrary, both the Institutional Church and those who hold faith in a postmodern key can—and should—be allies in a common cause. What is unfolding is nothing short of a second Reformation, and this Reformation (unlike the previous one) can unite both the change agents and the changing institution as partners on the same playing field. This book addresses the realities faced by what too many have called a dying institution. It is a call to move the institutional church out of a modality of denial and into a perspective of hope; out of a paradigm of scarcity and into a world of possibility with a growing multiplicity of options and allies; out of a time of end-game scenarios where only the fit will survive, and into what James Carse calls an “Infinite Game,” where those who play ensure that the game continues long after they have left the field.

Beyond the Comma: Life at the Intersection

Sale 25% off
The comma is a simple mark of punctuation. It separates all that has come before from whatever is to follow. Likewise, on the journey of life, we encounter those "comma times, "some intricately planned and self-created (a sabbatical; a day of reflection; a solitary prayer); others are imposed, sometimes violently or without warning, by external forces. This book challenges the reader to be attentive to those moments. They literally give us pause. And, in those times, we are increasingly aware that life consists of multi-layered intersections, some deeply personal; some corporate, even global. As we engage these intersections and explore their interrelationship, we become more whole. Through personal memoirs and reflections on public events, the narrative in this book explores these intersections and seeks to offer insights to readers as they seek to navigate the waters of their own lives.
