Reclaiming the Bible for the church by Carl E Braaten( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Front-ranking theologians speak out on the crisis of biblical authority and interpretation in the church, focusing in particular on the adequacy of the historical-critical method of hermeneutics. The essays in this volume address from various perspectives the notorious gap between the historical-critical approach to the study of the Bible and the church's liturgical and dogmatic transmission of biblical faith. The authors, following the central theme suggested by Brevard S. Childs's "canonical method" of biblical interpretation, argue that the historical-critical method does not suffice of itself apart from faith and the church."--Jacket
No other gospel! : Christianity among the world's religions by Carl E Braaten( Book )

Many people today question whether Jesus can still be asserted as the normative, decisive, and final self-revelation of God for the salvation of the world. Braaten offers an incisive examination of faith and hope in the modern world--shaped by the three theological themes of justification, eschatological hope, and a new trinitarian understanding of God

The catholicity of the Reformation( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the title of this engaging book suggests, "catholicity" was the true intent of the Reformation. The Reformers did not set out to create what later came to be known as Protestant Christianity. Theirs was a quest for reformation and renewal in continuity with the "one holy catholic and apostolic church" of ancient times. The authors of the essays collected here demonstrate this catholicity of the Reformers and stress the importance of recovering the church's catholic tradition today." "Robert W. Jenson examines communio ecclesiology, describing ecumenical thought on this ecclesiology and developing it in a number of areas. David S. Yeago proposes a new way of reading Luther, suggesting that the shift in Luther's thought actually brought him closer to the church's catholic tradition. Frank C. Senn discusses the Reformers' changes to the order of the mass, which restored the people's participation and regular preaching on biblical texts. Carl E. Braaten explores the problems that arise from the lack of an office of teaching authority in Protestant churches. James R. Crumley examines various perspectives on the office of pastor, seeking to clarify the notion of ministry in the catholic tradition. Robert L. Wilken looks at Pietism, showing that this movement sought to recover lost aspects of medieval spirituality and called for a deepening of personal piety. Finally, Gunther Gassmann discusses the ways in which the church universal is and should be a communion of churches."--Jacket

A map of twentieth-century theology : readings from Karl Barth to radical pluralism( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Indispensable to understanding the advent and import of today's radically pluralistic scene, this unique historical anthology presents 37 signal readings from key theologians of this century." "Outstanding interpreters of these figures and their generative ideas, Braaten and Jenson offer solid and sympathetic introductions and a clear scheme, a roadmap that makes sense of the fundamental and formative questions, concerns, "schools," and movements that have animated the theological enterprise in this explosive century, from 1900 right up to the threshold of contemporary currents."--Jacket

Because of Christ : memoirs of a Lutheran theologian by Carl E Braaten( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling memoir Carl Braaten tells the story of his life as a theologian, from his early years as a missionary kid in Madagascar, to his years of study at the universities of Paris, Harvard, Heidelberg, and Oxford, to his decades of teaching. Throughout his narrative Braaten delves into the many theological movements, controversies, and personalities that have shaped his thinking and writing." "A well-written theological autobiography exhibiting Braaten's signature accent -- "evangelical without being Protestant, catholic without being Roman, and orthodox without being Eastern"--Because of Christ is an intellectual travelogue par excellence, an informed chronicle of the chief theological conflicts of the twentieth century that have put the integrity of the gospel to the test." ""The story I am telling unavoidably unfolds as a chronicle that includes many conflicts and controversies. The very struggle for the truth of the gospel entails the negation and at times even the condemnation of rival doctrines. Some of these are blatant heresies that flourish within the church; others are alternative religions or ideologies whose most virulent forms threaten the survival of the Christian faith. The theologian's task is to turn the spotlight of the gospel on the intellectual challenges of our time and to keep the church from crossing the line from orthodoxy into heresy ... My quest for truth is the red thread that runs through the story I am about to tell."--the preface"--Jacket
