"I Chronicles" (Volume 12 in the acclaimed Anchor Bible series) is a book closely related to three other books of the so-called Chronicler's History-- "II Chronicles," "Ezra," and "Nehemiah." "I Chronicles" begins with the famous genealogical lists (from Adam to David), continues with an account of David's reign, in which the chronicler emphasizes David's efforts to restore the religion of Israel, and concludes with the accession of Solomon to the throne of Judah.

A crucial book for historians of the biblical period and for students of the Bible, "I Chronicles" is to be neither accepted as a faithful narrative of the Davidic period nor dismissed as a fanciful, imaginative re-creation of that history. It must be taken as an important clue to the biblical process. For here we find the Bible quoting itself--sometimes directly, sometimes in paraphrase.

Professor Myers meticulously analyzes important aspects of the Chronicler and his work--his method of composition, his conviction that to rebuild the nation of Israel one had to restore and strengthen her traditional religion, his significantly post-Exilic perspective. The book also examines the vast literature on Chronicles to find what it yields toward a better understanding of the Chronicler and a fuller appreciation of his work. Finally, it compares--in exhaustive detail-- "I Chronicles" with the other books in the Bible to which it is parallel. The volume Professor Myers has produced is no less than a definitive treatment of the subject.

Ante-Nicene Fathers, vol 3: Tertullian, Parts 1-3

product image
$30.00
Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus, anglicised as Tertullian, (ca. 160 – ca. 220 A.D.)[1] was a prolific early Christian Berber author[2] and the first to produce an extensive corpus of Latin Christian literature. He also was a notable early Christian apologist and a polemicist against heresy. Tertullian has been called "the father of Latin Christianity".[3]
Though conservative, he did originate and advance new theology to the early Church. He is perhaps most famous for being the oldest extant Latin writer to use the term Trinity (Latin trinitas), [4] and giving the oldest extant formal exposition of a Trinitarian theology.[5]. Other Latin formulations that first appear in his work are "three Persons, one Substance" as the Latin "tres Personae, una Substantia" (itself from the Koine Greek "treis Hypostases, Homoousios"). Some of Tertullian's ideas were not acceptable to the orthodox Church; in later life he became a Montanist.

Being Christian in an Almost Chosen Nation: Thinking About Faith And Politics

product image
$16.00
A guide to wrestling with religion's role in public issues

Since September 11 religion has been explicitly connected to most of the major events taking place in the national and international arenas. Seeking to make sense of developments in the world around them, Christians too often find that "help" in how to apply their faith to public issues only comes from those with the loudest agendas. How can thinking Christians seek authentic answers to such questions as America's rightful place in world affairs, or the role of faith in government? Drawing inspiration from Lincoln's description of America as an "almost chosen nation," H. Stephen Shoemaker models a faithful, humble engagement of Christian conviction with the civil affairs.

Beyond "Justification": Dimensions of Epistemic Evaluation

product image
$45.00
Much of the writing in Anglo-American epistemology in the twentieth century focused on the conditions for beliefs being "justified." In a book that seeks to shift the ground of debate within theory of knowledge, William P. Alston finds that the century-long search for a correct account of the nature and conditions of epistemic justification misses the point. Alston calls for that search to be suspended and for talk of epistemic justification to cease. He proposes instead an approach to the epistemology of belief that focuses on the evaluation of various "epistemic desiderata" that may be satisfied by beliefs.Alston finds that features of belief that are desirable for the goals of cognition include having an adequate basis, being formed in a reliable way, and coherence within bodies of belief. In Alston's view, a belief's being based on an adequate ground and its being formed in a reliable way, though often treated as competing accounts of justification, are virtually identical. Beyond "Justification" also contains discussions of fundamental questions about the epistemic status of principles and beliefs and appropriate responses to various kinds of skepticism.

Character and Scripture: Moral Formation, Community, and Biblical Interpretation

product image
$34.00
This volume by some of today's leading Christian thinkers sets forth the theological and ethical nature of scripture and explores the way in which the Bible plays a crucial role in the moral formation of community.

Covering a wide range of issues, these chapters demonstrate the useful and challenging intersection between biblical interpretation and ethics. The contributors investigate the formative impact scripture makes on its readers and examine the community's job of not only interpreting the biblical text but also integrating its moral character into the daily life of faith. This volume not only discusses these subjects in the most comprehensive manner yet, but it also offers practical examples of moral formation in action.

Children, Divorce, and the Church

product image
$11.00
"The motive in writing this book is the hope of sharing a perspective of divorce that is all too often overlooked or ignored. It is difficult to realize that divorce leaves victims other than the ex-spouse. The children of divorce are also victims. They are victims of change where they had no choices; victims where the important players in their lives are torn from the careful scripting of the American idea of family." --from the Introduction Both a parish minister and a child of divorced parents, Adams contributes a pastoral care book to help ministers understand the necessity and benefits of counseling the child or adolescent of a divorcing family.

Christian Dogmatics, Vol. 2

product image
$32.00
Christian Dogmatics is a two-volume survey of the twelve major loci of Christian doctrine, each treated extensively in terms of its biblical foundations, historical tradition, and contemporary significance. From the perspective of the Lutheran tradition and in view of the unique questions and issues of the American context, each locus is developed independent of the others by six theologians, themselves influenced by divergent theological movements: Carl Braaten, Gerhard Forde, Philip Hefner, Robert Jenson, Paul Sponheim, and Hans Schwartz. Volume 1 discusses dogmatics, the Trinity, the identity of God, creation, sin, and Christology. Volume 2 treats atonement, the Holy Spirit, ecclesiology, the sacraments, justification by faith, and eschatology.

How does race shape people?

Our society is not a harmonious blend of contrasting themes but is fast becoming an enduring culture of opposition. Race and ethnicity are the most frequent topics in our national dialogue. President Clinton has appointed a panel to discuss race matters across the country. But where does the Christian church stand? How can one of the most segregated institutions in North America help to reconcile the sins of racism, bigotry, and prejudice? The Color of Faith seeks to answer these questions.

Fumitaka Matsuoka provides a theological perspective on racial and ethnic plurality that contributes to the discussion on forging a new vision of relatedness and community building across racial divides -- with his sharpest focus on the theological perspective on racial and ethnic plurality, alienation across shifting race lines, and race and justice.

Contagious Witness: Exploring Christian Conversion

product image
$19.00

God's call to salvation is a call to a conversion from one way of life to another. Christians know that they are called to participate in the conversion of others by bearing witness to the salvation they have experienced in Christ. Yet most, uncertain of how they will be perceived and of the appropriate times and circumstances in which to share the gospel, are intimidated by the biblical mandate to witness to others. Through extensive interviews, Ronald Crandall and his associates have asked a basic question of thousands of Christians: How did you come to believe? The answers they have found provide important, practical guidelines for pastors and all those who seek to help others learn to engage in personal witness.

The key, Crandall asserts, is the fact that most of us come to faith through certain central relationships. These relationships are principally with our parents or other family members, our friends, our Sunday school teachers or other lay workers in the church, and our pastors or youth leaders. How one comes to faith through each of these relationships is surprisingly different. By using the stories of how others experienced personal conversion, Crandall offers essential insights into the proper ways and contexts in which to share the Christian message
