Описание: We have a universal yearning, writes Zahl, not to be happy or respected so much as enough-what religions call "righteous." Today, we look to all sorts of everyday activities--from eating and parenting to dating and voting-for the meaning once provided on Sunday morning.

What does worship look like? Is there just one truly right way to worship? Are there any wrong ways? To what extent should our unity as believers manifest itself in unified public worship? Sadly, disagreement over how we should worship our loving God has sparked some most unloving attitudes among Christians. Exploring the Worship Spectrum seeks to correct this. It provides a forum for presentation, critique, and defense of six prominent worship styles: Formal-Liturgical Paul Zahl Traditional Hymn-Based Harold Best Contemporary Music-Driven Joe Horness Charismatic Don Williams Blended Robert Webber Emerging Sally Morgenthaler This unique format allows those with a heart for worship to compare different perspectives and draw their own conclusions on what the Bible teaches. It engages the reader s faculties of critical thinking in a way that allows him or her to understand the various approaches to worship, carefully evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and make personal choices without adopting a judgmental spirit. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address three categories: Church Life, Exploring Theology, and Engaging Culture. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series."
Описание: What is grace? And more important, what difference do the "comfortable words" of grace make in the lives of everyday people? These are the questions to which Paul F. M. Zahl has devoted his life, and this book is a collection of essays written in honor of him that seeks to answer these great questions. From literary theory to exegesis to systematic theology, these essays are representative of the breadth and depth of the influence Dr. Zahl has had on a variety of scholars, and reflect his emphasis on the relationship between theology as an academic discipline and the pastoral impact of "one-way love" on everyday people. Contributors include: C. FitzSimons Allison, Todd Brewer, George Carey, James D. G. Dunn, Susan G. Eastman, Mark Mattes, Geiko Muller-Farenholz, Justin S. Holcomb, John D. Koch Jr., Lauren Larkin, Jonathan A. Linebaugh, Jurgen Moltmann, Heinz-Dieter Neef, J. Ashley Null, Raymond C. Ortlund Jr., Dylan D. Potter, Justyn Terry, Tullian Tchividjian, Jonathan K. M. Wong, Paul F. M. Zahl, and Simeon Zahl. "If there is no greater blessing than the forgiveness of sins, then there is no greater ministry than that to which Paul Zahl has dedicated his life. This collection of remarkable essays is a fitting tribute to a great friend and an indefatigable evangelist, in the best sense of that word." --Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California "Paul Zahl has grown a community around him whose appreciation is poured out in these remarkable essays, which not only describe but give words of comfort for troubled souls. Theology can still be a living fountain, so behold in these words what surprises God gives to the unexpecting and undeserving." --Steven D. Paulson, Luther Seminary "Is there anything more destabilizing, threatening, and dangerous than grace and all the doctrines that surround it? So beware, gentle reader: you are about to enter into a minefield; step too far left or right and you'll be blown up by one heresy or another. Walk the straight and narrow path of law and gospel and you will find great comfort in these essays, which honor a man who has helped so many of us remember the dangerous comfort of grace." --Mark Galli, editor, Christianity Today Todd Brewer is a doctoral candidate in New Testament at Durham University in Durham, England. John D Koch Jr. is a doctoral candidate in Systematic theology at Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin.
Описание: Focuses on the pneumatology of the German theologian Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt (1842-1919). This book identifies the impasse between classical Protestant and contemporary charismatic and Pentecostal pneumatologies as a fundamental theological problem. It contributes a constructive pneumatological proposal for moving beyond this impasse.
