John Oman and his doctrine of God by Stephen B Bevans( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Scottish theologian John Oman (1860–1939) conceived of God in terms of a personal reality who calls forth - rather than inhibits - freedom, creativity, and responsibility. Although he never wrote a book on God as such, all Oman's thought is based on this conception of God's radically personal nature and gracious - though often challenging - dealing with humanity. This book systematizes the thoughts on God which are scattered throughout Oman's writings, and places Oman in his historical and cultural context of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In the picture which emerges, evil and suffering are the result of cosmic independence and human freedom; God's power is revealed not in his ability to override human freedom, but in the patience to deal with its consequences, which include the emergence of moral and physical evil. For Oman, God's face has been revealed most clearly in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, whose gracious dealing with men and women shows God to be both eternal Father and abiding Spirit

Mission on the road to Emmaus : constants, context, and prophetic dialogue by Stephen B Bevans( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors in this collection of essays consider mission through the lens of 'prophetic dialogue'. They attempt to bring a fresh approach-- introducing some newer themes and bringing a different perspective on some older themes by examining in a theological rather than issues-based way. Aimed at scholars and students of missiology in the UK, the US and worldwide, it is also a contribution to the study of world Christianity and contextual theology
Called to unity : for the sake of mission by John St. H Gibaut( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this volume on mission and unity is to bring to public attention a broad overview on the history, development and perspectives on the role of mission in the pursuit of unity and the central biblical focus on unity as a prerequisite for an authentic witness in mission. The volume raises concrete questions: If the churches can agree on unity for mission, then does this visible unity go any further than the 'mutuality, partnership, collaboration and networking' of the Edinburgh 2010 Common Call? Does the call to unity or communion imply common touch stones, structures or ministries to serve the communion of churches in mission? Might the Holy Spirit be prompting a fresh mission to the churches to promote unity? It is an exciting moment in the convergence of traditions within World Christianity. Engaging together in new configurations, believers of many backgrounds are exploring common ground and identifying paths to consider as we continue proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. Contributors to this volume provide insights from a diversity of experience, from perspectives orthodox and catholic, evangelical and charismatic, mainstream and pioneering.-Olav Fykse Tveit, General Secretary of the World Council of Churches The disunity of God's Church must grieve him beyond all telling. How much we have to repent of. These essays take us on an honest and sobering journey through the causes and scandal of our separateness - beyond simple diversity - and help us understand the barriers from the perspectives of many streams of the world church. It calls us to pray and work for reconciliation and change, for God's sake.-Rosemary Dowsett, lecturer, co-leading Global Missiology Task Force, World Evangelical Alliance This book fills a significant gap in mission literature on an important topic: mission and unity. It brings together biblical, theological, and practical perspectives, as well as very useful information on how mission and unity are being pursued today in different parts of the world. An indispensable guide to being part of God's one mission to the world.-Robert Schreiter, Professor at Catholic Theological Union Edinburgh 1910 placed the ideal of the intrinsic inseparability of unity and mission on the global Christian agenda. However many have only managed to subscribe to this by reducing either unity or mission to less than what they are. This book reaffirms this ideal in all its fullness, and challenges us through numerous case studies to strive for its attainment. A most commendable exploration of the theme ""that they may all be one ... so that the world may believe""! -Hwa Yung, Bishop Emeritus, the Methodist Church in Malaysia John Gibaut is Director of the Commission on Faith and Order, World Council of Churches. Knud Jorgensen is Adjunct Professor in Missiology at the MF Norwegian School of Theology."--Amazon.co.uk
