Pauline Dogmatics: The Triumph of God's Love
Category: Books > Scripture > St Paul
ISBN-10: 0802875645
ISBN-13: 9780802875648
Publisher: Wm Eerdmans
Price: AU$99.99
Description: Drawing upon thirty years of intense study and reflection on Paul, Douglas Campbell offers a distinctive overview of the apostle's thinking that builds on Albert Schweitzer's classic emphasis on the importance for Paul of the resurrection.

Good Pauline theology is good practical theology, ecclesiology, and missiology, which is to say, Paul's theology belongs to the church. In these conversations Campbell pushes through interdisciplinary boundaries to explicate different aspects of Pauline community with notions like network theory and restorative justice.

Beginning with the God revealed in Jesus, Campbell progresses through Pauline ethics and eschatology, concluding that the challenge for the church is not only to learn about Paul but to follow Jesus as he did.

This Is My Body: Eucharistic Theology and Anthropology in the Writings of Gertrude the Great of Helfta
Category: Books > Spirituality > Classics
Author/Artist: JOHNSON, ELLA
ISBN-10: 0879072806
ISBN-13: 9780879072803
Publisher: Cistercian Pub
Price: AU$59.95
Description: This book examines how the writings of the thirteenth-century nun Gertrude the Great of Helfta articulate an innovative relationship between a person's eucharistic devotion and her body. It attends to her references to the biblical, monastic, and theological traditions, including attitudes and ideas about the spiritual and corporeal senses. It illuminates the affirmative role Gertrude assigns to the body in making spiritual progress.

Ultimately the book demonstrates that Gertrude leaves behind the dualistic aspect of the Christian intellectual and devotional tradition while exploiting its affirmative concepts of bodily forms of knowing divine union.

Witnesses to the Ends of the Earth: New Testament Reflections on Mission
Category: Books > Scripture > New Testament
ISBN-10: 1925494454
ISBN-13: 9781925494457
Publisher: St Pauls Publications
Price: AU$24.95
Description: Biblical scholar, Francis J. Moloney SDB, explores the teaching on mission found in the letters of St Paul, in the Gospels of Mark and Matthew, in Luke-Acts, and in the Gospel of John. He shows how each of the inspired authors provides unique yet complimentary insights into the mission entrusted to the followers of Jesus – a mission ad intra (to the community) and ad gentes (to the wider world).

While acknowledging the primacy of the missionary vocation of Jesus of Nazareth, Moloney’s focus in this work is on those disciples who appear in the New Testament texts, and the myriad of further Christian disciples who have been inspired by them through the centuries.

Moloney concludes with a study of the celebration of the Eucharist as the heart of the Christian mission: “As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes” (1 Cor 11:26).
