Biblical Insights into 'God's Chosen People'
23,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Who are God's Chosen People? The Jews? Born again Christians? Or some other group? This is an important question about which there is tremendous controversy. Who can authoritatively establish the true identity of God's Chosen People? Is the definitive answer found in your Bible? Des Griffin, the well known author of five other blockbuster books, was challenged a few years ago to resolve this vital Issue. Starting off with many more questions than answers, he examined the matter from every conceivable angle. His finely honed conclusions, anchored immovably in the pages of God's Word, are so clearly defined in scripture that many readers will 'kick themselves' for not having previously understood the Creator's revelation on the matter. As the reader is led systematically from Genesis to Revelation, previously overlooked scriptures will leap into life. Statements made by Jesus, Paul, Peter, and others will practically 'jump off the page' as previously unrecognized truths come to light. The reader's mind will be flooded with the answers to former spiritual dilemmas. Previous misunderstandings and misconceptions will evaporate and vanish under the piercing light of God's Word. God's Chosen People is a powerful Bible study guide.

The Hebrew Prophets After the Shoah
53,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Shoah is without question the defining moment in modern history, and it has transformed the manner in which the Bible is read and how God is understood. Questions that hitherto were rarely posed publicly must now be posed, and the human drama born out of exile, bondage, and genocide must be reckoned with in a new light. These are issues that are predicated on a faithful God to whom challenging and even unanswerable questions must be voiced. So, how might the Hebrew prophets address such contemporary issues as imperial militarism, eminent domain, trust and trauma, hunger and power, memory and shame, blame and self-critique, madness and exceptionalism? The daring words of the Hebrew prophets must have voices of testimony and witness in our time. This book speaks to that challenge. Hemchand Gossai has gathered key emphases from the prophetic corpus with remarkable clarity and enabled a sharp and thoughtful connection to contemporary issues. The prophets live again in this insightful book! --Terence Fretheim, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN The voice of the Hebrew prophets advocating justice and equality for all humans in rebuke of the beneficiaries of exploitative economics and retaliatory force comes to piercing clarity in Gossai's book. His hermeneutic of engagement draws the ancestral pioneers of Scripture and their modern heirs into a rigorous theopolitical discourse eschewing definitive solutions while denying the other popular alternative of dismissing ancient texts as expired and irrelevant. --Paul D. Hanson, Harvard Divinity School, Cambridge, MA With wonderful lucidity, Gossai takes the concerns of Israel's ancient prophets to the global marketplace today. He underscores the self-destructive, violent nature of the 'empire' then and now, and challenges readers to connect with the prophetic word so as to act prophetically, imaginatively, and responsibly in the face of pervasive inequities. Gossai has blared a wake-up call to us all, especially to those engaged in self-serving personal, political, social, religious, or intellectual efforts. --Carol J. Dempsey, University of Portland, Portland, OR Hemchand Gossai is Associate Dean of Liberal Arts at Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale. He is the author of several books including Social Critique by Israel's Eighth-Century Prophets, Barrenness and Blessing, and Power and Marginality in the Abraham Narratives. He speaks widely on civic engagement and social justice issues.

The Marvelous Pigness of Pigs
9,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From Christian libertarian farmer Joel Salatin, a clarion call to readers to honor the animals and the land, and produce food based on spiritual principles. What on earth is THE MARVELOUS PIGNESS OF PIGS? It's an inspiring call to action for people of faith . . . a heartfelt plea to heed the Bible's guidance . . . . It's an important and thought-provoking explanation of how by simply appreciating the marvelous pigness of pigs, we are celebrating the Glory of God. As a man of deep faith and student of the Bible, and as a respected and successful ecological family farmer, Joel Salatin knows that God created heaven and earth and meant for all living organisms to be true to their nature and their endowed holy purpose. He intended for us to respect and care for His gift of creation, not to ravage and mistreat it for our own pleasure or wealth. The example that inspires the book's title explains what Salatin means: when huge corporate farms confine pigs in cramped and dark pens, inject them with antibiotics and feed them herbicide-saturated food simply to increase profits, they are not respecting them as a creation of God or allowing them to express even their most rudimentary uniqueness - that special role that is part of His design. Every living organism has a God-given uniqueness to its life that must be honored and respected, and too often that is not happening today. Salatin shows us the long overlooked ethics and instructions in the Bible for how to eat, how to shop, how to think about how we farm and feed the world. Through scripture and Biblical stories, he shows us why it's more vital than ever to look to the good book rather than corporate America when feeding the country and your family. Salatin makes a compelling case for Christian stewardship of the earth and how it relates to every action we take regarding our food. He also opens our eyes to a common misconception many Christians may have about environmentalism: it's not a bad thing, and definitely not just the province of secular liberals; it's really a very good thing, part of heeding God's Word. With warmth and with humor, but with no less piercing criticism of the industrial food complex, Salatin brings readers on a fascinating journey of farming, food and faith. Readers will not say grace over their plates the same way ever again.

'My' Jesus
19,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

''My'' Jesus is a collection of twenty-three sermons--that is to say, good news twenty-three times, twenty-three jets of freedom--preached in French Protestant parishes or on the radio. I say ''my'' Jesus, not out of pride, but with humility. For I know well that this Jesus is not the Jesus of everyone, and moreover, that it is not a question of imposing it on anyone. This Jesus is not the Jesus of the historians or the scholars, neither the Jesus of the ecclesiastical hierarchies and other guardians of ''theological correctness.'' He certainly is disputable and impertinent, but this Jesus is mine and I live from him. The sermons ask four questions that are unsettling for any preacher and congregation. How can the message of Jesus still address us today? What does Jesus teach us about God that is truly new? How should we receive the gospel of non-violence of the Sermon on the Mount? How can we remain a Church of Easter Day? It may appear that I am proposing answers to these four questions. In fact, my deepest desire is that the pertinence of their challenge not be forgotten; beyond that, it is up to each one to live with these difficult questions as he or she understands them. -Louis Simon ''This is preaching at its most basic and most profound. Most basic because all of these sermons are rooted and find their life in biblical texts about Jesus from the Gospels. Most profound because Simon's sermons, like good parables, consistently upend our expectations and help us see Jesus--and our life in Jesus--in a whole new way. They are fresh, disarming, and deeply theological.'' -Leonora Tubbs Tisdale Clement-Muehl Professor of Homiletics Yale Divinity School '''Jesus' renown imprisons him,' laments Louis Simon, the author of this startling collection of freshly translated sermons. After observing the difficulty of meeting Jesus 'face to face,' Simon the preacher sighs, 'Alas.' As hard as it is to hear the Gospel afresh, it breaks free again and again in these pages. Layers of religious pretension, gooey piety, and encrusted orthodoxies are cracked open by the piercing prose--nearly poetry--of this French preacher.'' -David M. Greenhaw President, Eden Theological Seminary ''Beginners preach from the obscure texts; veterans from the more familiar ones. Louis Simon combines the best of both by making the home shores strange and obscuring the familiar so that it can become fresh again. This book of virtuoso sermons may well be the best cure for claustrophobic Christianity out there. Pick up 'My' Jesus and start anywhere and find out why two distinguished philosophers such as Paul Ricoeur and Charles Courtney would invest their talents in making these masterpieces available to a wider audience.'' -Leonard Sweet Professor Drew University and George Fox University ''This remarkable collection of newly translated sermons comes from another time and place-Protestant France of two generations ago. Reading good sermons from outside one's context tends to jostle all the current assumptions how familiar Bible texts should be understood and preached. In sermon after sermon, Louis Simon takes the familiar, turns it on its head, and leaves the reader nodding and whispering, 'Just so, just so.''' -Michael L. Lindvall Senior Minister of the Brick Presbyterian Church New York City Louis Simon is a pastor of the Reformed Church of France. Beginning in the early 1960s hundreds of students and intellectuals flocked to the parish of Massy-Palaiseau (near Paris) to hear his sermons. He later served in Montpellier where he now lives in retirement. Charles Courtney, retired Professor of Philosophy of Religion at Dre
