Think Christianly

Author: Jonathan Morrow
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 9780310586739
Release Date: 2011-11-01
Genre: Religion

Think Christianly is about seizing the opportunities we have every day to speak the life Jesus offers into our culture. Tragically, many such opportunities pass us by unclaimed—either because we don’t notice them or we have not prepared ourselves to enter into them. And those around us seem to grow increasingly unwilling to hear anything the church has to say. Jonathan Morrow helps church leaders envision and implement ways for their congregations to “think Christianly” about contemporary questions and to speak in informed, engaging ways. Morrow explores many of the important issues that Christians often hear raised with regard to faith—questions about who Jesus was, the good and bad of religion, pain and evil in the world, the reliability of the Bible, sexuality and intimate relationships, and hope for change, among others. The life and faith issues that Think Christianly addresses lead to cultural moments where Christianity and contemporary culture intersect. This book will help churches take vital steps toward cultivating compassion and competence in speaking faithfully to a questioning world.

Dieses eBook: "Der Ursprung des Christentums (Vollständige Ausgabe: Band 1 bis 4)" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Karl Kautsky (1854-1938) war ein deutsch-tschechischer Philosoph und sozialdemokratischer Politiker.

Er schrieb politische und historische Studien und wurde zu einer Autorität auf dem Gebiet der Marx’schen Theorie.

Philosophy of Religion

Author: William Lane Craig
Publisher: Rutgers University Press
ISBN: 0813531217
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Philosophy

This important new book is a combined anthology and guide intended for use as a textbook in courses on philosophy of religion. It aims to bring to the student the very best of cutting-edge work on important topics in the field. The anthology is comprised of six sections, each of which opens with a substantive introductory essay followed by a selection of influential writings by philosophers of religion: Religious Epistemology deals with the rationality and warrant of theistic belief. Existence of God presents the cosmological, teleological, axiological, noological, and ontological arguments for the existence of God. Coherence of Theism covers the divine attributes of necessity, eternity, omnipotence, omniscience, and goodness. Problem of Evil treats both the internal and external challenges posed by evil to theistic belief. Soul and Immortality explores the substantiality and immateriality of the soul and the implications for life after death of the body. Christian Theology handles problems posed by the Trinity, incarnation, atonement, damnation, and prayer. Presenting a sympathetic view of the topics it treats, Philosophy of Religion provides an ideal resource for studying the central questions raised by religious belief.
