Justice for all! False Justice specifically calls for a paradigmatic shift in the way most people think about justice. Having a right paradigm of fairness is crucial to withstanding the type of deception that is rapidly permeating our culture today. False Justice equips you with the Christ-focus and the biblical backing needed to form a right and godly mindset regarding social justice. Distinct from other Christian books about social justice, False Justice: has a Christ-centric focus—it defines justice in relation to Jesus Himself. doesn’t simply suggest methodologies, it calls for a change in the foundational paradigm of justice. tells how Jesus intends to bring godly justice upon the earth. reveals how the message of the gospel is the message of justice. False Justice brings you closer to God by clearly revealing His desire for righteousness, honesty, and integrity in the earth, setting Christ as the ultimate vision of justice and calling you to set your attention solely on Him.

This unique and supremely readable textbook recounts the thought of nine influential twentieth-century theologians in the light of biblical narrative to better understand the Christian life. By drawing upon the achievement of major thinkers--Rosemary Ruether, Gustavo Gutierrez, Reinhold Niebuhr, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Karl Rahner, Jurgen Moltmann, Hans Kung, Yves Congar, and Wolfhart Pannenberg--and rooting it within the rich fabric of its biblical context--Creation, Exodus, Conquest, Exile, the Incarnation, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, Pentecost and the End of Time--The Tapestry of Christian Theology traverses a landscape both historical and spiritual, one that traces and encourages a new understanding of both perspectives, and illumines a greater insight into our own lives. Here is a rigorous and wide ranging textbook for college theology courses, also suitable for the general reader.

Channels of Prophecy is a cross-cultural study. It argues that prophetic intermediation is a widespread phenomenon in ancient and modern cultures, and proposes a way of identifying and describing the underlying similarity among intermediaries. It discusses the nature of prophetic authority and the function of "miracles" performed by prophets. It suggests that divination may be viewed as one type of prophetic intermediation and that prophecy must be presumed to occur down to the present. Finally, it reflects on how one might evaluate the prophetic claims made about a variety of persons in contemporary America. -- Book Jacket.
