The 2011 award-winning publication The Christian Faith garnered wide praise as a thorough, well-informed treatment of the philosophical foundations of Christian theology, the classical elements of systematic theology, and exegesis of relevant biblical texts. Pilgrim Theology distills the distinctive benefits of this approach into a more accessible introduction designed for classroom and group study. In this book, Michael Horton guides readers through a preliminary exploration of Christian theology in “a Reformed key.” Horton reviews the biblical passages that give rise to a particular doctrine in addition to surveying past and present interpretations. Also included are sidebars showing the key distinctions readers need to grasp on a particular subject, helpful charts and tables illuminating exegetical and historical topics, and questions at the end of each chapter for individual, classroom, and small group reflection. Pilgrim Theology will help undergraduate students of theology and educated laypersons gain an understanding of the Christian tradition’s biblical and historical foundations.

This thesis critically explores the theological perspectives of the Psalms of Ascents (Psalms 120–134), sometimes referred to as the Pilgrim Psalter, through text and performance. Three particular perspectives are considered: anthropo-logic, cosmo-logic, and theo-logic. These are adapted from William Brown’s approach to the theological interpretation of Scripture. Each one is refracted through a corresponding effect of the text that also emerges in performance: emotional, kinaesthetic, and relational. Adopting Christopher Seitz’s argument that the canonical arrangement and ordering of biblical texts has theological implications, this thesis approaches the Psalms of Ascents as a theologically coherent collection with intentionality to their canonical presentation. In particular, their shared superscription connecting them to pilgrimage functions as both a frame for performance and a hermeneutical lens for interpretation of the collection sequentially. An innovative component of this thesis is the incorporation of the author’s own memorisation and performance of the text, as well as analysis of audience responses to these performances, as part of the interpretive process. The theological interpretation of the collection therefore integrates critical analysis of the text combined with performance-based research, utilising the emerging methodology of biblical performance criticism through contemporary performance of an ancient text. This combination provides a significant enrichment to the understanding of the theological trajectory of the Psalms of Ascents. This is a theology designed to be entered into and experienced, or “enacted.” What emerges from this study is aptly termed a “pilgrim theology.” Taking the performative nature of the collection along with the framing effect of its superscription, those who enact these psalms find their identity as pilgrims redefined, their engagement with the world as a place of journey reconstructed, and their relationship with a dynamic and multidimensional God reframed. This thesis demonstrates that the effect of the Pilgrim Psalter is, to use Walter Brueggemann’s term, “worldmaking.”

Promise has a long pedigree in the history of Christian understandings of the gospel. This volume gathers together leading homileticians to consider the breadth of its understanding today in light of the struggle to reconcile God’s grace with God’s justice. Assuming that promise is a core sense of the gospel, how does this relate to the variety of contexts in which homiletical theology is done? In this final volume in the series, six homileticians from a variety of contexts and perspectives try to move specifically toward a homiletical theology of promise as a way to articulate the central theological gift and task that is preaching the gospel today.

Accomplished theologian J. Todd Billings recovers the biblical theme of union with Christ for today's church, making a fresh contribution to the theological discussion with important applications for theology and ministry. Drawing on Scripture and the thought of figures such as Augustine, Calvin, Bavinck, and Barth, Billings shows how a theology of union with Christ can change the way believers approach worship, justice, mission, and the Christian life. He illuminates how union with Christ can change the theological conversation about thorny topics such as total depravity and the mystery of God. Billings also provides a critique and alternative to the widely accepted paradigm of incarnational ministry and explores a gospel-centered approach to social justice. Throughout, he offers a unique and lively exploration of what is so amazing about being united to the living Christ.

M.M. Thomas was one of the chief architects of the modern ecumenical movement. An outstanding theologian, his original and rather unconventional explorations into ecumenical social ethics remain highly relevant even today. Long before liberation theology burst on the scene, Thomas raised his prophetic voice for the liberation of humanity from the dehumanizing structures. Focusing on the theological and social contributions of M.M. Thomas and his legacy for our times, and published with the support of the Council for World Mission to coincide with the centenary of Thomas' birth, this collection brings together an international panel of distinguished scholars, theologians and church leaders.

The three methods of doing mission, namely conquista, accommodation, kenosis need to be seen not so much as historical events that took place in a particular time and space, but rather as deeply engraved mind structures and personal attitudes as we confront many of the modern time issues such as mass poverty and its relationship to the churches, interreligious and ecumenical dialogue, relationship with Islam, Catholic education in public institutions, moral and ethical problems regarding the treatment of embryos for eugenic purposes, issues concerning the end of life, social debate on alternative lifestyles and the role of women in ecclesial institutions, to mention but a few.
