Paul's Narrative Spirituality of the Cross

Most studies of Paul concentrate solely on his theology. This book breaks new ground by focusing on the source and nature of Paul's spirituality. Taking his cue from Paul's express desire to "know nothing but Christ crucified," Michael Gorman shows how Paul's personal experience of God constantly intersects with the story of the cross, an event that both reveals the cruciform character of God and shapes believers into a community of "cruciformity" (conformity to the crucified Christ). Expertly combining biblical studies and theological reflection, this noteworthy volume presents a model of the Christian life marked by faith, love, power, and hope.

Thomas Aquinas (1224/25–1274) wrote commentaries on the four Gospels by stringing together quotations from the works of Greek and Latin Church Fathers and of later Church writers. Thus a catena (chain) was created, the best-known of all catenae. In the 14th century it was translated into German. Two of the universally treasured magnificent manuscripts with the commentaries on Mark and Luke were considered lost in the last year of the Second World War, but in 1982 they were discovered in Toruń. The present volume contains the edition of the Catena aurea super Lucam, the commentary on Luke.

What distinguishes catholic exegesis from other approaches to interpreting Scripture? This study examines the Pontifical Biblical Commission's document, The interpretation of the Bible in the Church, and derives from it twenty principles of Catholic interpretation. The meaning of each of these principles is explained and its significance is discussed in light of commentary on the Biblical Commission's document, magisterial documents on Scripture, and contemporary scholarly discussion. This volume includes a preface by Card. Albert Vanhoye, formerly Secretary of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, a bibliography of works about the Commission's document and of works cited, a general index, and a glossary.

Die seit 1925 erscheinenden Arbeiten zur Kirchengeschichte bilden eine der traditionsreichsten historischen Buchreihen im deutschsprachigen Raum. Sie enthalten Forschungen zur Kirchen- und Dogmengeschichte des Christentums aller Epochen, veröffentlichen aber auch Arbeiten aus verwandten Disziplinen wie beispielsweise der Archäologie, Kunstgeschichte oder Literaturwissenschaft. Kennzeichnend für die Reihe ist der durchgängige Anspruch, historisch-methodische Präzision mit systematischen Kontextualisierungen des jeweiligen Gegenstandes zu verbinden. In jüngerer Zeit erscheinen verstärkt Arbeiten zu Themen einer Kultur- und Ideengeschichte des Christentums in einem methodisch offenen christentumsgeschichtlichen Horizont.

Das Exegetische Worterbuch zum Neuen Testament wurde von mehr als 150 evangelischen und katholischen Autorinnen und Autoren aus dem deutschsprachigen und internationalen Raum erarbeitet und stellt eines der gelungenen Beispiele okumenischer Zusammenarbeit dar. Das spiegelt sich auch in der weiten Verbreitung des Werks durch die amerikanischen, japanischen, italienischen und spanischen Ubersetzungen wider. Auch wenn das EWNT sich zunachst an Leserinnen und Leser wendet, die Griechisch gelernt haben, so kann es doch durch die Umschrift der Artikelstichworter in lateinischen Buchstaben, durch die vielfachen Ubersetzungen innerhalb der Artikel sowie durch die Gesamtregister am Ende des Werks auch denen eine Hilfe sein, die sich am deutschen Text orientieren wollen.

What is abortion? A convenience to society? A legal offense? Murder? The twentieth century is not the first to face these questions. Abortion was a common practice two thousand years ago. The young Christian church, growing up in influential centers of Greco-Roman culture, could not ignore the practice. How would church leaders define abortion? Gorman examines Christian documents in their Greco-Roman context, concluding that Christians held a consistent position throughout the church's first four hundred years.
