101 Key Terms in Philosophy and Their Importance for Theology
$16.00

Written by two philosophers and a theologian, this book provides easy access to key terms in philosophy and how they are understood and used in theology. The focused entries discuss what the terms have meant in classical and contemporary philosophy and then shift to what these philosophical understandings have meant in the history of Christian theology to the present day. The result is a unique volume that clearly shows the interplay of these disciplines and how theology has been influenced by the language and vocabulary of philosophy.

Authentic Christianity: How Lutheran Theology Speaks to a Postmodern World

Authentic Christianity: How Lutheran Theology Speaks to a Postmodern World
$15.99
Burnt-out believers and spiritual secularists have given up any hope that an engaging and meaningful spirituality can be found in a single Christian denomination. So rather than attending worship at a local church, they attend to their spiritual needs elsewhere. Instead of being fed by a single denomination, they feast upon a smorgasbord of spiritual beliefs. And while these disaffected believers have not rejected the existence of God or the need for meaningful spirituality, they have strongly rejected whatever it is they think the church today has to offer.

product image
$18.99
A.G. Voigt's Biblical Dogmatics is a short and comprehensive account of Christian Theology from a Lutheran perspective. Voigt uses the traditional Loci method of Lutheran Scholasticism, while being sensitive to the best of early twentieth century Biblical scholarship. He covers all major topics in Christian theology, and does so in a manner that is readable and exegetically sensitive. This is an ideal introduction to Lutheran Dogmatics. Among the topics covered in this work are: Theology proper, the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the nature of salvation, the sacraments, the church, and eschatology. Voigt's approach to these issues is Biblical and Confessional.

Christ's Church: Her Biblical Roots, Her Dramatic History, Her Glorious Future

Christ's Church: Her Biblical Roots, Her Dramatic History, Her Glorious Future
$25.00
Description: ""The Church, who is she?"" asks Bo Giertz in this book, which, he adds, ""is first of all for those who have some notion of the life which is present within the church walls and also have some desire to understand that life better and know more about it."" If you're among the tens of thousands who've read Giertz's bestselling novel The Hammer of God about ordinary people in their relation to the Church and her message, then you know his ability to engage you in the dramatic events of everyday life. Giertz shows the same engaging ability, when he in Christ's Church takes you on a walk from her biblical roots toward her glorious future. Endorsements: ""Christ's Church demonstrates the resilient vigor of Bo Giertz's literary work. First published under the dark clouds of an erupting world war in 1939, Christ's Church has not lost its power to convict and comfort. If anything the vitality of Giertz's book is even more potent in our day of pluralism, doctrinal indifference, and inbred suspicion of all religious institutions. Confident of the church's oneness in Christ, built secure on the foundation of the apostolic Word, Giertz sees the church as a living legacy of God's faithfulness. This is a book that speaks with clarity and conviction to seasoned Christians at home in the Father's house as well as to those who stand outside but peep in the window, seeking a glimpse of life lived in God's family"" --John T. Pless Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Missions Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana ""One of the most insightful thinkers in the rich tradition of Swedish theology, Bo Giertz drew deeply from the biblical roots of the church's understanding of itself out of the midst of his daily routine as parish pastor. Anchored in the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Bo Giertz's succinct but penetrating synthesis of biblical teaching on God's people assembled by the Holy Spirit rings true around the world seventy years after its composition. Giertz aids readers to embrace the catholic practice of the church and to bring the Gospel to those around us at the beginning of the twenty-first century."" --Robert A. Kolb Missions Professor of Systematic Theology, Emeritus Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri-- About the Contributor(s): Bo Giertz (1905-1998), Bishop of Gothenburg in the Lutheran Church of Sweden, was voted the most influential Swedish church leader during the 1900s. He penned no less than thirty books. Christ's Church was his first, written at the age of thirty-three.

Cremation, Embalmment, or Neither?: A Biblical/Christian Evaluation

0
Cremation, Embalmment, or Neither?: A Biblical/Christian Evaluation
$17.95

This book documents today's rising rates of cremation in the West, and notes that these rates now include many deceased Christians, a stark contrast to Christians in the past who had consistently rejected cremation from their earliest years in pagan Rome to the mid-1960s. Christians opposed and spurned cremation for a number of reasons, discussed in this book. By mid-fourth century, Christianity's rejection of cremation influenced pagan Rome to abandon cremation. Earth burial became the only acceptable way to dispose of deceased humans, resulting in a major cultural change in the West. Converts to Christianity had to promise they would never be cremated. Graveyards were named coemeteria, Latin for where dead people "sleep;" from which we get the word "cemetery," a name now contradicted by cremation.

This book is a clarion call to Christians. Dr. Schmidt has amassed historical, biblical, theological, and practical evidences that the modern Christian church will only refuse to hear to its great loss, both now and at the judgment Seat of Christ where we each shall receive what is due to for things done "while in (might we add "to") the body" (2 Corinthians 5:10).

--Craig A. Parton, M.A., J.D. United States Director,

International Academy of Apologetics, Santa Barbara, California.

This powerful apologetic clearly establishes that cremation fails to find endorsement in the inspired Holy Scriptures. Dr. Schmidt's research will prove invaluable for those who might query the need for burial rather than cremation. Hopefully, this book will have a wide influence on Christian thought and practice.

--Donald Howard, Pastor Emeritus, Anglican Church, Diocese of Sydney,

NSW, Australia. Author of Burial or Cremation: Does It Matter?

I heartily recommend Dr. Schmidt's excellent book Cremation, Embalmment, or Neither?A Biblical/Christian Evaluation to clergy and faithful laypeople alike concerned with the increasing rates of cremation among Christians. This will be in keeping with the Apostle Paul's admonition: "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of the world" (Romans 12:2).

--Archpriest Victor S. Potapov, Rector,

Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Washington, DC.

This book provides an excellent opportunity for Christians to engage in deep theological thought regarding end of life decisions. Dr. Schmidt has thoroughly documented the historical roots for Christian burial. A must read for all Christians.

--Beth Hoeltke, Ph.D., Librarian, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO.

Discourses in Matthew - Jesus Teaches the Church

Focusing his exploration on Jesus' Five Discourses, Scaer demonstrates that Matthew was written as catechesis, a method in concert with its content and organization. The discourses summarize the message the disciples are to carry to "all nations," and each discourse builds on its predecessors to culminate in the narrative of Jesus' death and resurrection, which is the Gospel's interpretive key.

Doctrine on Which the Church Stands or Falls: Justification in Biblical, Theological, Historical, and Pastoral Perspective

0
product image
$60.00

Many factors contributed to the Protestant Reformation, but one of the most significant was the debate over the doctrine of justification by faith alone. In fact, Martin Luther argued that justification is the doctrine on which the church stands or falls. This comprehensive volume of 26 essays from a host of scholars explores the doctrine of justification from the lenses of history, the Bible, theology, and pastoral practice--revealing the enduring significance of this pillar of Protestant theology.

Ethics

Ethics
$16.99
The Christian does not live in a vacuum, says the author, but in a world of government, politics, labor, and marriage. Hence, Christian ethics cannot exist in a vacuum; what the Christian needs, claims Dietrich Bonhoeffer, is concrete instruction in a concrete situation. Although the author died before completing his work, this book is recognized as a major contribution to Christian ethics.

The root and ground of Christian ethics, the author says, is the reality of God as revealed in Jesus Christ. This reality is not manifest in the Church as distinct from the secular world; such a juxtaposition of two separate spheres, Bonhoeffer insists, is a denial of God's having reconciled the whole world to himself in Christ. On the contrary, God's commandment is to be found and known in the Church, the family, labor, and government. His commandment permits man to live as man before God, in a world God made, with responsibility for the institutions of that world.
