The problems of theology by Brian Hebblethwaite( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faculties of theology are a traditional feature of most western European universities, yet in colleges of education, schools and in some newer universities the subject is studied, if at all, under the heading of 'religious studies'. Taking the question 'Is there such a subject?' as his point of departure, the author sets out to explore the relation between theology and the broader field of religious studies. Theology primarily means 'rational talk about God', but the word is used in other wider and looser senses as well. Mr Hebblethwaite discusses in what ways it is possible for non-believers to engage in theology, and stresses the need for all to pursue the subject openly and self-critically in a religiously pluralist world. Criteria for truth-claims in religion and the problem of revelation are among the topics examined. In the course of his study the author looks at the relationship between theology and a number of adjacent subjects: psychology and the social sciences, philosophy, history and ethics

The Incarnation : collected essays in Christology by Brian Hebblethwaite( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gathers together essays, published and unpublished, in which Brian Hebblethwaite explores and defends the Christian doctrine of the Incarnation against its modern critics. He shows what would be lost from the Christian religion if non-incarnational Christology (a way of understanding Jesus Christ without belief in his divinity) were to be adopted by the Christian churches. He begins by examining some of the problems raised by this challenge to traditional doctrine, then considers the contribution of Austin Farrer to Christology, and goes on to analyse the recent trend towards Unitarianism in contemporary theology. In a new, concluding essay, Canon Hebblethwaite answers criticisms of his contribution to the current debate on the Incarnation

The ocean of truth : a defence of objective theism by Brian Hebblethwaite( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This short book offers an alternative reading of the impact of modernity on Christian faith to that advanced by Don Cupitt in his television series and book, The Sea of Faith. Hebblethwaite gives a spirited defense of belief in the objective reality of God and in life after death, as opposed to Cupitt's radically interiorized and expressivist view of religion. As attractive as many may find a denial of the traditional church doctrines in favor of an anti-metaphysical, non-dogmatic expressivist version of Christian faith, Hebblethwaite insists that of far greater importance is the question of objective truth that he focuses his attention. After arguing against Cupitt's response to the modern situation, Hebblethwaite shows how belief in an objective God is both possible and highly plausible, despite the impact of modern science and historical criticism
The Christian hope by Brian Hebblethwaite( Book )

17 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does it mean to hope for heaven? Brian Hebblethwaite traces the background to the Christian hope in the faith of Israel, examines its primary basis in the acts of God in the story of Jesus Christ, and follows the history of Christian attitudes to the future of humanity and of creation throughout the Christian centuries. The Christian Hope tells the complex story of the different strands, emphases and problems that have developed between biblical times and our own in the quest to understand 'the four last things' - death, judgement, heaven and hell. Hebblethwaite concentrates our attention on the modern period since 1900, an era when modern Christian theology has witnessed a remarkable recovery of interest in hope and the future as dominant motifs in its reflections. The discoveries of modern science have affected Christian hope and Christian understanding of creation and its ultimate destiny. At different stages in the history of the church, very different stresses have been laid on the present or on the future, on hope for the individual or on hope for society, on this-worldly hope or on other-worldly hope. Through a study of the basis of Christian hope and of the history of its interpretation, Hebblethwaite aims to present a balanced view of these different elements in the Christian tradition and a credible eschatology for today

Ethics and religion in a pluralistic age : collected essays by Brian Hebblethwaite( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important work explores the distinctiveness of Christian ethics, particularly through its interconnections with doctrine and the wider history of religions. Brian Hebblethwaite shows how the distinctiveness of Christian ethics can only be understood and appreciated against this wider background. In a remarkably skilful and sensitive way he brings out the pluriform and complex nature of that distinctiveness - in Christian individuals and communities as they reflect something of the triune love of God, and in contemporary humanism and the major world faiths in which this love is also discernible to different degrees. He concludes with an extended exploration of the strengths and weaknesses of the different religions in their contributions to the overcoming of evil. The result is a seminal study for everyone interested in ethics, theology and religious studies
