Towards An Ecumenical Paradigm For Christian Mission

by Pham Paulus Y., release date 2010, Towards An Ecumenical Paradigm For Christian Mission Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Towards An Ecumenical Paradigm For Christian Mission books, Toward this visionary paradigm, the ecclesiological basis has a crucial task. As sacrament the Church is the sign and instrument for the coming unity of humankind. In this respect, an adequate ecclesiology has to present the Church as the Church for others. The Church's existence must reveal the Kingdom of God, not only as the fulfillment of the Church but also as the future of the world. This vision is not so far above; if theology is considered as a science through which God becomes comprehensible and accessible to people of all cultural and religious backgrounds. Thus, the author creates a new paradigm for Christian Mission which could be stated in the words of Pope Benedict, As Christians we should never limit ourselves to asking how I can save myself. We should also ask: what can I do in order that the others may be saved and that for them too the star of hope may rise? Then I shall have done my utmost for my personal salvation as well3. This paradigm applies not merely to an individual Christian but to all churches that are engrossed in preserving their identity and their 'narrow' missions. Documenta Missionalia is pleased to present this work, which was originally submitted as a doctoral thesis at Pontifical University Gregorian. Paulus Y Pham has made some necessary changes for the publication. I am convinced that this book, since it highlights the common approaches to mission, will be of great inspiration and help for all Christians who in theoria and praxis prolong missio Dei in our modern world toward the universa Lordship Christ which would be expressed in His Kingdom.Christopher Shelke, S.J.

Mission On The Road To Emmaus

by Cathy Ross, release date 2015-01-31, Mission On The Road To Emmaus Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Mission On The Road To Emmaus books, Cathy Ross and Steve Bevans are two of the biggest names in the study of mission and missiology worldwide. Cathy is director of OxCEPT at Ripon College Cuddesdon and Steve Bevans is teaching missiology at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. The contributors in the book consider mission through the lens of ‘prophetic dialogue'. The book consciously tries to bring a fresh approach – introducing some newer themes (identity, creation, migration) and bringing a different perspective on some older themes by grouping them in this way. It is theological rather than issues-based and involves both older and newer contributors. The book is aimed at scholars and students of missiology in the UK, the US and worldwide. It is also a contribution to the study of world Christianity and contextual theology. Contributors include Jonny Baker, Kirsteen Kim, Gavin d'Costa, Emma Wild-Wood, Robert Schreiter and S. Mark Heim.

Reclaiming Mission As Constructive Theology

by Paul S. Chung, release date 2012-03-09, Reclaiming Mission As Constructive Theology Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Reclaiming Mission As Constructive Theology books, Reclaiming Mission as Constructive Theology offers a compelling case for the need to integrate God's mission and missional church conversation with a public and post-colonial study of World Christianity. Driven by a commitment to publicly engaged theology that takes seriously the reality of Global Christianity, Paul Chung presents a vital new model for understanding the mission of God as a dynamic word-event. This is argued in conversation with contemporary missional theology and analysis of the development of Global Christianity, and as such brings important transcultural issues to bear on contemporary American conversations about the missional church. All of this serves to innovatively stimulate this missional church conversation and more directly address the various questions that arise in pursuing mission in a multiculuralized American society.

The Lord Is The Spirit

by John A. Studebaker Jr., release date 2008-01-01, The Lord Is The Spirit Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Lord Is The Spirit books, Although the doctrine and work of the Holy Spirit is no longer being ignored in theology (as was often the case in centuries past), the authority of the Spirit remains essentially undefined. The need for such a definition, however, is urgent. Some dangerous trends in the contemporary understanding of the Spirit have developed (trends that can only be exposed through careful exegesis of Scripture and theological clarification). Indeed, some contemporary models often leave us with a nonauthoritative "Spirit" predisposed toward universalism, experientialism, or panentheism. This work will attempt to show that the nature of the Holy Spirit's authority can be clearly defined through biblical and systematic theology. When we investigate the Spirit's place within the pattern of divine authority, as specified in Scripture, we discover that the Holy Spirit indeed possesses a unique authority as divine Person, Christ's Executor, Teacher, and Governor of the Church. Such a work will be helpful for both the theologian and the pastor. First, definitions of the Spirit's authority will be developed through historical, exegetical, and theological analysis. Then these definitions will be applied to specific church practices, including hermeneutics, church structure and guidance, and Christian spirituality. A response will also be given to those "practical theologies" that are subtly diminishing the Spirit's authority in relation to the contemporary church.
