Transforming postliberal theology : George Lindbeck, pragmatism and scripture by C. C Pecknold( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transforming Postliberal Theology responds to George Lindbeck's seminal proposal for postliberalism in The Nature of Doctrine: Religion and Theology in a Postliberal Age (1984). Occasioned by new studies in the religious roots of pragmatic philosophy, Pecknold argues that postliberalism represents 'a new pragmatism' that rediscovers its theological and semiotic roots in Scripture. Testing this hypothesis, Pecknold assesses the book Lindbeck wrote, and the book critics read, to ask if there are good, immanent reasons for long-standing criticisms to remain. Pecknold proposes that problems reader

The greatness of humility : St. Augustine on moral excellence by Joseph J McInerney( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The jury is out on the virtue of humility. Most people find humility a more attractive character trait in others than its opposites of pride and arrogance. Yet many philosophers, be they ancient or modern, find little value in humility as a virtue. For the Aristotelian moral tradition, humility is an impediment to greatness. Modern philosophers take this sentiment further, asserting that humility is a sham virtue that leads to unhappiness and human debasement. The Christian intellectual tradition, however, provides a contrast to these negative appraisals of humility. St. Augustine of Hippo is

Augustine and world religions by Brian Brown( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite Augustine's reputation as the father of Christian intolerance, one finds in his thought the surprising claim that within non-Christian writings there are 'some truths in regard even to the worship of the One God.' The essays here uncover provocative points of comparison and similarity between Christianity and other religions to further such an Augustinian dialogue
T&T Clark companion to Augustine and modern theology( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Synopsis] The T&T Clark Companion to Augustine and Modern Theology is both a theological companion to the study of Augustine, and a resource for thinking about Augustine's importance in modern theology. Each of the essays brings Augustinian depth to a broad range of contemporary theological concerns. The volume unveils cutting-edge Augustinian scholarship for a new generation and at the same time enables readers to see the timely significance of Augustine for today. Each of the essays not only introduces readers to key themes in the Augustinian corpus but also provides readers with fresh interpretations that are fully conversant with the theological problems facing the church in our world today. Designed as both a guide for students and a reference point for scholars, it will seek both to outline the frameworks of key Augustinian debates while at all times pushing forward fresh interpretative strategies concerning his thought

The Greatness of Humility St by Joseph J McInerney( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The jury is out on the virtue of humility. Most people find humility a more attractive character trait in others than its opposites of pride and arrogance. Yet many philosophers, be they ancient or modern, find little value in humility as a virtue. For the Aristotelian moral tradition, humility is an impediment to greatness. Modern philosophers take this sentiment further, asserting that humility is a sham virtue that leads to unhappiness and human debasement. The Christian intellectual tradition, however, provides a contrast to these negative appraisals of humility. St. Augustine of Hippo is an eloquent and robust proponent of humility's value. Unlike the thinkers of the classical and modern philosophic traditions, Augustine asserts that humility is not only a significant virtue; it is the indispensable foundation of human greatness. The Greatness of Humility traces how Augustine makes his argument regarding the importance of humility and shows how his position measures up to those of his philosophical rivals
