BOOK EXCERPT:

A fresh and inspirational daily encounter with fascinating people, pivotal moments, and crucial issues over two millennia of Christian history. What happened on this day-or, more precisely, what happened on this day that should interest and inspire Christians? The Christian History Devotional has the answer. For every day of the year, The Christian History Devotional contains a Bible verse, a brief story from Christian history connected with the date, and a prayer that applies the day's story to the reader's life. It turns Christian history, which many readers might assume is boring or irrelevant, into an uplifting and fascinating devotional experience. While drawing from two thousand years of history, Lang provides readers with fascinating stories from a wide span of subjects-missions, evangelism, social reforms, Bible versions, martyrdoms, church-state relations, music, art, and literature.

BOOK EXCERPT:

William C. Placher and Derek Nelson compile significant passages written by the most important Christian thinkers, from the early church through the Middle Ages, and up to the beginning of the sixteenth century. Illustrating the major theologians, controversies, and schools of thought, Readings in the History of Christian Theology is an essential companion to the study of church history and historical theology. Excerpts are preceded by the editors' introductions, allowing the book to stand alone as a coherent history. This revised edition expands the work's scope with the addition of many new texts, especially those from the voices of women and others who have been marginalized from the theological tradition. This valuable resource brings together the writings of major theologians from the church's history for a new generation of students.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The advent of the modern, historical, and critical methods of reading Scripture is one of the most significant events in the last five hundred years of Christian history and theology. New questions arose in the course of that history that led to new, sometimes troubling answers. New ways of considering Scripture were articulated. The crisis in which academic Christian theology has found itself for approximately two hundred years is directly related to the emergence of new ways of studying--and criticizing--the Bible. The Challenge of History traces the trajectory of these developments, presenting key readings from over thirty-five theologians--from Erasmus to Pannenberg--whose writings relate to the birth of modern historical and critical exegesis and, more broadly, to the emergence, among theologians and biblical scholars, of a certain historical consciousness that characterizes vast segments of modernity. How did the historical and critical methods arise? How did they impact the study of Scripture? What are their implications for Christian theology? Scripture is read--and needs to be read--differently in a parish, in a monastery, and in an academic setting. But the various ways of approaching Scripture should not be cordoned off from one another. This volume is an ideal textbook for in-depth study of one of the most important topics in modern theology.
