Embodying forgiveness : a theological analysis by L. Gregory Jones( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of forgiveness is often taken to be either too easy or too difficult. On the one hand, forgiveness is sometimes made too easy by today's therapeutic culture, which views forgiveness mainly as a means for making ourselves and others feel better. On the other hand, forgiveness is sometimes taken to be too difficult by those who believe that violence is the only effective force for responding to injustice. This volume by L. Gregory Jones argues that neither of these extreme views is appropriate and offers, to society as a whole, a biblically centered exploration of what it truly means to embody Christian forgiveness.--From publisher's description

"Touching on topics such as church and civil religion and Jewish-Christian relations, this celebration of Stanley Hauerwas's thought is certain to evoke thoughtful engagement and spiritual reflection.

Rethinking metaphysics by Gregory W Jones( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Out of the ashes of the post-modern critique of metaphysics comes a series of important essays which re-think the place of metaphysics in theological and philosophical inquiry. This book ranges across a variety of philosophical and theological traditions, engaging such figures as Plato and Augustine, as well as Gillian Rose, Jacques Derrida, Donald Davidson, C.S. Peirce, and Jean Luc Marion. The authors of these essays directly confront a variety of post-modern critiques of metaphysical speculation, while, nonetheless, arguing that there is still a significant future for reflection on metaphysical questions. Unified by an agreement about the urgent need to re-think metaphysics rather than a common set of answers, these essays should provoke a wide-ranging and lively discussion among philosophers and theologians."--Jacket

Gregory Jones offer both a theology of excellence and portraits of pastors, lay leaders, and congregations that embody "a more excellent way."--Publisher's description
