The Spirit of the New Testament /

: The essays in this volume on the one hand together form an exploration of the Spirit in the New Testament, and on the other hand a demonstration of the spirit of the NT. The focus is largely on the Johannine literature, but there are also exegetical studies in Matthew and Luke. The studies are either entirely new or have already been influential among Pentecostal theologians; this publication makes them deservedly and conveniently available to a wider readership. Essays include: The Kingdom of God in Matthew; Discipleship in Mark; The Ending of Mark; The Composition of the Fourth Gospel; The Fourth Gospel and Rabbinic Judaism; The Spirit in the Fourth Gospel; Healing in the Atonement; The Structure of Acts; Footwashing; Women, Pentecostals, and the Bible; The Literary Structure of 1 John; Pentecostal Theology in the 21st Century.

Autobiographical Biblical Criticism : Between Text and Self /

: The autobiographical turn in biblical criticism reveals the interpreter's "I" and reclaims it as an essential critical category, issuing a challenge to traditional, "objective" criticism. Pioneers in the field have contributed essays both practical and theoretical. They offer stimulating autobiographical re-readings of Hebrew Bible and New Testament texts, and address hermeneutical issues that are at stake in this young field of criticism.

Anthropology and Biblical Studies : Avenues of Approach /

: Presents the findings of an international research symposium, held at St Andrews University, Scotland, in July 2003. Contributors include both biblical scholars and anthropologists. The essays presented variously explore and review interdisciplinary links, innovations and developments between anthropology and biblical studies in reference to interpretation of both the OT and NT and pseudepigraphal works. Explored are methodological issues, the use of anthropological concepts in biblical studies (identity; purity boundaries; virtuoso religion; spiritual experience; sacred space) and more 'field orientated' work of bible translators in different cultures.

Leviticus in Practice /

: Practice Interpretation takes the everyday social conditions of people as they are described in the Bible and looks at emerging issues that confront interpreters in daily life. The latest volume in the Practice Interpretation series deals with a much-neglected but fascinating part of the Bible, the book of Leviticus. The book opens with an introduction by J.W. Rogerson. Philip Davies attempts to uncover the main theme of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, concluding that the portrait of the ideal Israel in each gives the perspective respectively of a priest, a military commander and a lawyer. In his second essay he explores the enigmatic figure of Azazel in the atonement ritual of Leviticus 16. What parallels are there with the New Testament account of the Passion of Jesus? John Rogerson studies the term niddah in relation to the menstruating woman in Leviticus 15, concluding that we must revise our ideas and practice about impurity in the Old Testament. His second study, of the sources and compilation of Leviticus 19, suggests that we must revise our ideas and practice about holiness. John Vincent deals with the relationship between the Jubilee legislation in Leviticus and the ministry of Jesus, drawing conclusions for the nature of Christian discipleship today. Noel Irwin looks at Leviticus 19 in relation to John Wesley's view of practical holiness and his interest in the Letter of James. John Davies views Leviticus 25 from the point of view of his experience of working in apartheid South Africa.

Acts in Practice /

: In this volume, the second in the Practice Interpretation series, interpreters from various different situations describe how passages and themes in the book of Acts speak to their 21st-century circumstances. The aim in the words of a contributor is to "link up with some of the stories that belong to our lives today - things that are happening in the newspapers or in the churches, or in our own spiritual lives. to treat them as a springboard to make connections between Luke's world and ours" (Loveday Alexander). The 16 other contributors are John D. Davies, Susan Miller, Leslie Francis, Ian Wallis, Daniel McGinnis, David Holgate, Robin Pagan, Garnet Parris, Andrew Parker, Alan Powers, Neil Richardson, John Proctor, Christine Jones and John Vincent.

Three Mountains to Freedom /

: In Galatians, we meet Paul at his most passionate, most personal, and his most political. For him, the heart of the Gospel is: The Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. But for some of his colleagues, faith in Christ is not enough. They want something that will give more of a sense of achievement; they yearn for the more exclusive insignia of the Jewish law. Senior church leaders are confused and compromised. Paul faces this crisis with two further essentials of the Gospel, our unity in Christ and our freedom in Christ. The book shows how, in our own day, the same testing of faith happens, with issues of race, gender, poverty, equality, in a culture which values the achievements of some while treating others with disdain. Written geographically from a Welsh context, this is the Archbishop of Wales's recommended Lent book for 2016; but it speaks to the wider motivations of our present culture. For the author, Galatians was a primary weapon in the theological struggle against the ideology of apartheid in South Africa; it has a similar relevance for today's Britain and beyond.

The Farewell Discourses in Practice /

: Practice Interpretation takes the everyday social conditions of people as they are described in the Bible and looks at emerging issues that confront today's interpreters in daily life. This volume in the Practice Interpretation series deals with the Farewell Discourses of Jesus in the Gospel of John. The key element and dynamic in the Johannine practice reflections in this volume is that John's Gospel sometimes explicitly, often implicitly, sets forth a continuing Jesus-style practice by Jesus' followers, in the gospel time, in the longer term behaviour of early Christian communities, and in contemporary Christian disciples and communities today. Each contributor indicates this at work in very different contexts and happenings. The contributors are: Leslie Francis, David Blatherwick, Sarah Pullin, David McLoughlin, Ian Wallis, Nirmal Fernando, John Vincent and Alan Saxby.

Stilling the Storm : Contemporary Responses to Mark 4.35-5.1 /

: Most books about Jesus and the Gospels deal with texts, background, culture and authorial intentions. A new approach to the Gospels called Practice Interpretation puts the emphasis on the actual happenings behind the Gospel stories - on what first hearers might have made of them, and on what contemporary disciples today make of them. The concern of the studies in this series is with the "use" of a Gospel story by disciples today, and of its "influence" on them. In this ground-breaking collection, the first in the Practice Interpretation series, people from many different situations describe what the story of Jesus Stilling the Storm actually "sparked off" in their lives.

Revelation : A Pentecostal Commentary /

: Where do we go after death? What happens to us? What factors influence our destiny? What will happen to the world in years to come? Is there a controlling divine force in human experience? Is there a plan, or is life a product of random occurrences, of chance? Why is it the righteous who are persecuted and suffer while the wicked seem to prosper? Is there justice in the universe? The book of Revelation offers answers to many of these questions. Since, however, it is one of the more difficult of the New Testament books to read and interpret, it is often overlooked, neglected or even avoided by today's Christians. Yet it addresses many prophetic issues of importance to those seeking to understand God's plan for the future. Speaking through its heavy symbolism and sometimes strange visions of heaven, angels, beasts, earthly turmoil and destruction, the Apocalypse offers hope that God will overcome evil and that he does indeed control human destiny.

The Double Voice of Her Desire : Texts by Fokkelien van Dijk-Hemmes /

: To the attentive listener, women's texts speak with a "double voice." Women are quite capable of telling a conventional story, reflecting the expectations of the dominant culture. However, at the same time they tell their own, muted story. Such stories are fragments of resistance, and anyone who has experience of living on the margins can track them down. Such was the view of Fokkelien van Dijk-Hemmes (1943-1994). This is a comprehensive collection of the late scholar's groundbreaking work in feminist biblical interpretation, in English translation. The essays document Van Dijk-Hemmes' development and show how her work relates to contemporary developments in feminist thinking. There is a Foreword by Mieke Bal, an in memoriam by Athalya Brenner, and an overview of van Dijk-Hemmes' extensive output of books and articles completes the volume. Fokkelien van Dijk-Hemmes taught Women's Studies and Old Testament at the University of Utrecht. Her pioneering work of feminist interpretation, tragically cut short, was highly influential both inside and outside the Netherlands. Translated by David E. Orton

Understanding the Incarnation : 'A Candle of Understanding' /

: Human beings have always struggled to find their place in the universe and sought understanding and contact with the divine. In contrast to the many failures and dead-ends the historically rooted but timeless Christian message looks radically different. Precisely the reverse dynamic has created the way: In the Incarnation the divine has come to humanity, making a bridge through the life and redeeming death of Jesus. As the author shows, the multiple witnesses of the New Testament and generations of Christian writers have grasped this and expounded it in their different ways. The philosophers and the scientists down to the present day have sought and are seeking a Theory of Everything. In the light of the candle of understanding, it is there to be discovered by all in the Incarnation. Suddenly, Christmas, Easter, and much besides, make sense.

Faith Lost: Faith Regained : Rediscovering a Transforming Christian Belief /

: A holistic, positive answer to modernist and post-modernist challenges to Christian faith. Recent trends in theology have adapted to what has been assumed to be universally valid scientific thinking, thereby contributing to the erosion of traditional protestant belief. Pointing to parable as a tool of understanding and appealing to aesthetic appreciation as an analogy, the author makes an impassioned call for a return to an assured biblical faith. The answer lies in a fuller epistemology and a profounder ontology to explain the universe and man's place in it.
