Issues surrounding homosexuality threaten to divide the Christian churches and the people within them.

Together they invite the reader to open his or her heart to the Spirit, to tolerance, and to Gospel values. Through personal testimony, factual clarification, and moral suasion, they provide much-needed clarity on the biblical witness and biblical authority, the nature or character of homosexuality and sexual orientation, and many related topics

The human being : Jesus and the enigma of the Son of the Man by Walter Wink( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and Korean and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The epithet 'the son of the man' (or 'the Human Being') in the Gospels has been a highly debated topic. Wink uses this phrase to explore not only early Christology but the anthropology articulated in the Gospels. Jesus apparently avoided designations such as Messiah, Son of God, or God, though these titles were given by his disciples after his death and resurrection. But Jesus is repeatedly depicted as using the obscure expression 'the Human Being' as virtually his only form of self-reference. Wink explores how Jesus' self-referential phrase came to be universalized as the 'Human Being' or 'Truly Human One.' The Human Being is a catalytic agent for transformation, providing the form and lure and hunger to become who we were meant to be, or more properly perhaps, to become who we truly are. The implications of this are profound, Wink argues. We are freed to go on the journey that Jesus charted rather than to worship the journey of Jesus. We can rescue Jesus from the baggage of christological beliefs added by the church. We are enabled to strip away the heavy accretion of dogma that installed Jesus as the second person of the trinity. Now he can be available to anyone seeking to realize the Human Being within. Jesus becomes uniquely a criterion of humanness. He shows us something of what it means to become human, but not enough to keep us from having to discover our true humanity ourselves

Jesus and nonviolence : a third way by Walter Wink( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than ever, Walter Wink believes, the Christian tradition of nonviolence is needed as an alternative to the dominant and death-dealing "powers" of our consumerist culture and fractured world. In this small book Wink offers a precis of his whole thinking about this issue, including the relation of Jesus and his message to politics and nonviolence, the history of nonviolent efforts, and how nonviolence can win the day when others don't hesitate to resort to violence or terror to achieve their aims."--Jacket

Understanding spiritual warfare : four views by James K Beilby( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The topic of spiritual warfare is an issue of ongoing interest in a number of sectors of the contemporary church. In most non-Western ecclesiastical contexts, the reality and importance of spiritual warfare is a given. Yet in the contemporary Western church, it remains a topic of curiosity and discussion. Recognizing the significance of spiritual warfare for today's church, this multi-view work brings together leading theologians and ministry leaders to present major positions on the subject in dialogical fashion--all authors present their views and then respond to each of the other views. Each contributor interacts with five questions: (1) What is the nature of Satan and the demonic? (2) What role does spiritual warfare serve in the Bible and how central is it to the biblical narrative? (3) How should Christians conceive of and practice spiritual warfare? (4) Can individual human beings be "demonized"? If so, how does this happen and how is it to be dealt with? Can a Christian be demonized? (5) Do 'territorial spirits' exist? If so, are we called directly to engage them in 'strategic level' spiritual warfare?This volume provides a balanced, irenic approach to a much-discussed and often controversial topic. Offering a model of critical thinking and respectful dialogue, it highlights the differences between contributors, discusses a full range of important topics on the subject, and deploys biblical as well as theological arguments. The book will serve as a text in courses relating to theology, missions, practical theology, and spiritual warfare and will be of interest to pastors and church leaders."--Publisher description
