Andreas Bodenstein von Karlstadt : the development of his thought, 1517-1525 by Ronald J Sider( )

17 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in 4 languages and held by 2,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the important trends in more recent Reformation scholarship has been the extensive attention given the major "secondary" Reformers who aided and abetted, and sometimes challenged and infuriated, Luther, Zwingli, and Calvin. This book, which began as a doctoral dissertation at Yale University, is an attempt to elucidate the thought of one of the most important of these "Reformers in the wings."--Preface

Rich Christians in an age of hunger : moving from affluence to generosity by Ronald J Sider( Book )

53 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Do you want to make a true difference in the world? Dr. Ron Sider does. He has, since before he first published Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger in 1978. Despite a dramatic reduction in world hunger since then, 34,000 children still die daily of starvation and preventable disease, and 1.3 billion people, worldwide, remain in abject poverty. So, the professor of theology went back to re-examine the issues by twenty-first century standards. Finding that Conservatives blame morally reprehensible individual choices, and Liberals blame constrictive social and economic policy, Dr. Sider finds himself agreeing with both sides. In this new look at an age-old problem, he offers not only a detailed explanation of the causes, but also a comprehensive series of practical solutions, in the hopes that Christians like him will choose to make a difference."--Publisher's description

Early Pentecostals on nonviolence and social justice : a reader( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents some of the pacifist and social justice convictions of early Pentecostals, many of whom were called traitors, slackers, cranks, and weak-minded people for extending Jesus'love beyond racial, ethnic, and national boundaries. They wrestled with citizenship and Jesus'prohibitions on killing. They rejected nation-worship, war profiteering, wage slavery, patriotic indoctrination, militarism, and Wall Street politics--and many suffered for it. They criticized governments and churches that, in wartime, endorsed the very thing forbidden in their sacred book and civil laws. They recognized the dangers of loving your country too much, even more than Jesus and his words, and viewed nation-loyalty as a distraction from a higher and more inclusive loyalty--devotion to God. These articles, once accessible only to academics, are now available to the public. These voices, often forgotten within today's mainstream Pentecostal history, offer an opportunity to revisit the passions of early Pentecostal leaders and to examine Pentecostalism in fresh ways

The scandal of the evangelical conscience : why are Christians living just like the rest of the world? by Ronald J Sider( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are Christians living like the rest of the world? Evangelical Christians say they believe in biblical moral standards and the power of God to transform lives, yet recent surveys show that most are not living any differently than the rest of the world. From money to sex to racism to personal self-fulfillment, a scandalous percentage of Christians are violating biblical standards with barely a twinge of conviction. Ron Sider takes a painfully honest look at this disconnect to reveal the depth of the problem and contrast it with biblical teaching on the transforming power of genuine faith. When we apply these biblical teachings to our lives, we will be more suited to close the gap between who we are and who God calls us to be. - Publisher

Lifestyle in the eighties : an evangelical commitment to simple lifestyle( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is an appropriate lifestyle for those who have received new life in Jesus Christ? Contributors from around the world discuss this question from biblical, historical, and social perspectives. They share the belief that if Christians in affluent nations responded to the teachings of Christ and the needs of the poor by living even moderately simple lifestyles, they could make an enormous contribution to the reduction of global poverty and hunger. Personal testimonies from seven evangelical Christians, including the former "Galloping Gourmet," attest to this, while outlines for biblical studies on evangelism, justice, and lifestyle help readers reconsider their own patterns of living."--Back cover

Primarily, it draws data from early church writings, but other evidence, such as archaeological finds and Roman writings, is included. The book contains brief introductions to every Christian writer cited and explanatory notes on many specific texts. The Early Church on Killing will be a helpful text in courses on ethics, theology, and church history"--Publisher description
