An exploration of how the truth, love, and power of God revealed in Jesus Christ are contemporary to and transformative of human life.
In this chapter, I argue that Bonhoeffer's answer comes by way of an interpretation of Christ's presence. To this end, I look to his dissertations, Sanctorum Communio and Act and Being, in order to identify the place and character of ...

Bonhoeffer's writings include a significant amount of biblical interpretation, but his potential contributions in the fields of biblical studies and theological exegesis of Scripture have not been sufficiently explored. This study reassesses some of his key exegetical writings in light of his theology of revelation and bibliology, unfolding the ways in which his reading of the Bible is determined by his theology of Scripture. Through this analysis, Joel Banman demonstrates that the uniting factor of Bonhoeffer's biblical interpretation is not methodological but bibliological: he reads Scripture as the living word of the present Christ.
This is quite different from the eventual shift to perceiving the presence of Christ almost solely in the sacred species, quite distinct from the community's gathering to celebrate the Eucharist. Later generations of Christians have not ...

Using the resources of several contemporary philosophical aproaches, including semiotics, phenomenology, personalism, and existentialism, the book draws attention to the forgotten or or less understood aspects of the belief in the presence of Christ in the gathered assembly and explores the implications of this belief for participating in the liturgy and living the Christian life.

This book explores the doctrine of ascension, and Barth's ascension thought in particular. First, it examines the doctrine of Jesus Christ's ascension into heaven, presenting a sustained discussion of Karl Barth's approach to this doctrine and the significance of the doctrine within his theology as a whole. Secondly, through examining Barth's ascension thought and dialoguing with three other theologians (Torrance, Farrow and Jenson), a clearer understanding of Barth and his theology is achieved. The treatment of issues related to Christ's ascension across a broader (protestant) perspective increases the relevance and usefulness of this unique study. Andrew Burgess presents the doctrine of the ascension as an important and undervalued doctrine and encourages Christians to see how, like Barth, they might benefit in their ability to think coherently about the present age and about Jesus in relation to this age, enabling further thought about the work of the Holy Spirit, the church, and Christian ethics.

Parkhurst has taken Murray's classic, The Secret of the Abiding Presence, and added the insights of Brother Lawrence's bestseller, The Practice of the Presence of God, updating them for today's reader.

The thirty-one devotionals are comprised of chapters from Murray's original book summarized and given practical application by the writings of Brother Lawrence. Each devotional begins with comments on a specific topic by Murray, then Lawrence's commentary on the subject concludes the devotional.
