Power and Christian ethics by James P Mackey( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the conventional analysis of human behaviour, power and ethics are frequently considered contrary principles, in that power enforces, while ethics elicits a free response. But, as James P. Mackey shows, a more adventurous philosophical study of human morality, with its focus locked firmly on to the enabling and directional power of Eros, illuminates simultaneously our sense of obligation, our freedom, and our engagement with other persons and things in the common quest for well-being (the good); the sense of contraries is evaded thereby and we are set on the quest for the kind of power that liberates human creativity. It is then possible to undertake a critical assessment of the kind of power that ought to be operative in the major structures of human society, whether civil or ecclesiastical, state governments and church hierarchies. The religious question quite naturally emerges as to whether this Eros-type power so manifest in human society originates from beyond the more empirical structures of churches, states, and 'nature'; and the effort to detect the specifically Christian characterisation of an allegedly ultimate power working in us for final well-being finds its natural context, and is given attention by the author, in what follows

The critique of theological reason by James P Mackey( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning from the theological reaches of philosophy, this book argues that gods played a crucial part in modern philosophy, even when it was most critical of them; that the dominant nihilism of Derrida is really an excessive and misleading outcome of a contemporary philosophy which could otherwise resonate with all that is best in our evolutionary image of the universe; that moralists who turn to art in order to overcome the fact-value version of a concomitant and deadly dualism do not thereby rule out religion; and that a Christian theology which recognises the evolutionary/historical conditions of faith and revelation is once again producing a theology that builds upon the best of contemporary philosophy and science."--Jacket
Morals, law, and authority; sources and attitudes in the church by James P Mackey( Book )

9 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book aims at analysis in depth of the question of morals, law and authority; by no means exhaustive, since each chapter could be extended into a book in its own right, but at least exploratory. The analysis concerns, in turn, the sources of moral teaching in the Church, the arguments by which it is recommended and the ideas and terms in which it is clothed, the manner in which it is imposed and received and finally, the positive advantages which the Church can claim to possess in the moral quest of mankind
Tradition and change in the church by James P Mackey( Book )

13 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tradition is a process, an activity, an occurrence which straddles the centuries. The same can be said of change, which is always an integral part of tradition. But tradition and change are also concepts and we can try to work out a satisfactory account of tradition and change. The need for such reflective understanding of tradition and change is central to contemporary theology. It is to this task that the author addresses himself in the present work. He explains the necessity of tradition in the life of any community. In particular he highlights the unifying power of religious tradition
