We begin with a thought experiment. Modern critical biblical scholarship often points out how the church's teachings about Jesus have become encrusted with tradition so that it is hard to see what the core documents—the New Testament—really say about him. Now, with the insight of 200 years of modern critical scholarship and assuming an audience that includes both the well-churched and the non-churched, how should the church present the story and identity of the central personality of their faith, Jesus of Nazareth? Many people will be surprised at the story they hear.

Der unerwartete Amtsverzicht von Papst Benedikt XVI. im Februar 2013 hat in den Medien vielfältige Stellungnahmen und Analysen provoziert. Mit einigem zeitlichen Abstand nimmt der vorliegende Band eine erste Bilanz des Pontifikats Benedikts vor, der schon bald nach seinem Amtsantritt als Theologenpapst bezeichnet wurde. Renommierte Theologen, Philosophen und Soziologen, aber auch Schriftsteller, Weggefährten und Journalisten würdigen die theologischen Impulse (Enzykliken, Reden, Jesus-Buch, Katechesen) sowie die unterschiedlichen Dimensionen des Pontifikats (Kirche, Ökumene, Judentum, Politik, Kunst), zeigen aber auch Grenzen und Problemfelder auf.

The church is political. Theologians have been debating this claim for years. Liberationists, Anabaptists, Augustinians, neo-Calvinists, Radical Orthodox and others continue to discuss the matter. What do we mean by politics and the political? What are the limits of the church’s political reach? What is the nature of the church as an institution? How do we establish these claims theologically? Jonathan Leeman sets out to address these questions in this significant work. Drawing on covenantal theology and the ‘new institutionalism’ in political science, Leeman critiques political liberalism and explores how the biblical canon informs an account of the local church as an embassy of Christ’s kingdom. Political Church heralds a new era in political theology.

What has happened to our culture? There was a time when we thought that we had all the answers, we knew it all, and we knew better. Now we act as though there are no answers. We wonder whether we can know anything at all, whether anyone will tell us the truth. In an age where our sense of possibility has collided with our loss of purpose, So, What’s Your Point? explodes like a bomb, dismantling the notion that we can write our own stories and expect a happy ending. Fran Sciacca wakes us up and invites us into a sweeping story—God’s story—where we discover that there’s a point to each of us: We find our identity, and our purpose, our mission in life in the story God has written for us.

Benjamín Valentín presents a substantive yet accessible introduction to the three central doctrines of Christian theology: God, humanity, and Christ. In an engaging style, Valentín offers an overview of each of these doctrines, delving into its tradition within the Christian community throughout history, from the writing of Scripture forward. He further explores what contemporary life tells us about this doctrine and how that compares to traditional understandings and then determines how we can reconstruct this doctrine in light of our new assessment of it. Each chapter concludes with suggested readings for further study. Throughout, Valentín highlights the diversity of Christian thought, bringing together past tradition and contemporary questions to arrive at a new understanding of what these important doctrines can mean for us today.
