The atonement debate : papers from the London Symposium on the Theology of Atonement by London Symposium on the Theology of Atonement( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent days have seen a debate among evangelicals over how the death of Christ is to be interpreted. When a popular British evangelical leader appeared to denounce the idea that God was punishing Christ in our place on the cross as a "twisted version of events," "morally dubious," and a "huge barrier to faith" that should be rejected in favour of preaching only that God is love, major controversy was stirred. Many thought the idea of penal substitution was at the heart of the evangelical understanding of the cross, if not the only legitimate interpretation of the death of Christ. Yet for some time less popular evangelical theologians had been calling this traditional interpretation of the atonement into question. So, is the traditional evangelical view of penal substitution the biblical explanation of Christ's death or one of many? Is it the non-negotiable heart of evangelical theology or a time-bound explanation that has outlived its usefulness? What does the cross say about the character of God, the nature of the law and sin, the meaning of grace, and our approach to missions? The public debate which resulted was often heated. In order to act as reconcilers, the Evangelical Alliance and the London School of Theology called for a symposium in which advocates of the different positions could engage with each other. The symposium, which was attended by some 200 participants, was held when the July 7th bombings took place in London and drew together many of Britain's finest evangelical theologians. This book contains the collection of papers given at the symposium, supplemented by a few others for the sake of rounding out the agenda, and grouped in convenient sections

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human trafficking is the fastest growing global crime and is now the second largest after the illegal arms trade. It involves the movement of people, against their will, through violence, deception or coercion for the purpose of sex, forced labour or even body parts.

The book contains real-life stories, photographs, and practical action points, divided into 6 sections - Stop: The right to freedom; Look: Trafficking is on your doorstep; Think: Attitudes and awareness; Buy: The power of the consumer; Act: Join the movement; and, Start: Resources to get you started
The lost message of Jesus by Steve Chalke( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a fresh and perhaps controversial look at Jesus by one of Britain's most respected Christian authors. Who is the real Jesus? Do we remake him in our own image and then wonder why our spirituality is less than life-changing and exciting? Steve Chalke--a high-profile visionary in the United Kingdom and an evangelical recognized not only by Christians but by the general public as well--believes that the real Jesus is deeply challenging. And each new generation must grapple with the question of who he is, because only through a constant study of Jesus are we able to discover God himself. The Lost Message of Jesus is written to stir thoughtful debate and pose fresh questions that will help create a deeper understanding of Jesus and his message. It is an encounter with the real Jesus of his world--not the Jesus we try to mold to ours. Themes include: The Kingdom of God--shalom--is available to everyone now, through Jesus; The world outside your own church needs to hear of the depth of God's love and suffering; Jesus was a radical and a revolutionary; Jesus offers immediate forgiveness, without cost, to anyone; Jesus shows us repentance isn't a guilt-laden list of dos and don'ts, but an inspirational vision of a new way to live. Focusing on some of the key episodes, events, and issues of Jesus' life, we will see how too often the message we preach today has been influenced more by the culture we live in than the radical, life-changing, world-shaping message Jesus shared two thousand years ago

Intelligent church by Steve Chalke( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'As St. John of the Cross said: "Mission is putting love where love is not." This book is full of ideas. It should prompt us all to examine the effectiveness of the way local churches are organized.' -The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York 'Everything that Steve Chalke writes is insightful and cutting-edge. Here he argues in favor of a church that thinks and acts in ways that make the Kingdom of God visible and reasonable in a secular society.' --Tony Campolo, PhD Eastern University, Pennsylvania, USA The task of the Church is "to be the irrefutable demonstration and proof of the fact that God is love," claims Steve Chalke. An intelligent church intentionally connects the Bible and its twenty-first-century culture, is authentic and, most importantly, has thought through its practice. In other words, the way it does church is a reflection of its understanding of who God is. This foundational issue must be addressed by pastors, church and ministry leaders, small group leaders and others as we continue to grapple with the shape of effective church in the postmodern, post-Christian West. As Chalke unpacks central theological concepts, such as the incarnation, human sinfulness and the Trinity, he points us to the corresponding characteristics of an intelligent church, such as inclusiveness, messiness and diversity. Each thought-provoking chapter concludes with a 'Yes but How'' section, which gives practical suggestions for moving your church along this path

Apprentice : walking the way of Christ by Steve Chalke( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The quest for meaning and purpose dwells within all of us. Jesus insisted that its fulfillment lay in a relationship with him. But what does that relationship look like--really? Apprentice calls spiritual pilgrims, both Christians and non-Christians, to exchange the shallow diversions of secular and religious culture for the pursuit of our true desires. In a book of refreshing honesty, great heart, and rich creativity, Steve Chalke guides us into an apprenticeship with the master teacher, Jesus. Embarking on a relational journey that engages us on every level, we walk with Jesus in an organic, whole-life learning experience, exploring ten areas foundational to the meaning and depth we crave. Apprentice encourages us to ask our most probing questions, embrace our doubts, and learn why we are driven to belong. Combining story and parable with thoughtful commentary, we discover the ancient art and discipline of apprenticeship-- living lives stamped with the character, presence, and impact of Jesus." -- Publisher's description

Different eyes : the art of living beautifully by Steve Chalke( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We have a need today to free up the Church in its ability think through and debate its ethical responses to contemporary issues. How do we think about and respond to the issues of crime, punishment and rehabilitation, consumerism - money, banks, economics and bonuses, war and peace making, euthanasia and assisted dying, same sex relationships. etc. 'We can only act within the world we can envision ... We do not come to see merely by looking, but must develop disciplined skills through initiation into that community that attempts to live faithfully to the story of God ... by learning to be faithful disciples, we are more able to see the world as it is.' Stanley Hauerwas, The Peaceable Kingdom. Ethics provide the cultural and moral framework in which we live our whole lives. Our ethics are like the air we breathe, and though for the most part they go unnoticed, our lives and communities depend on them. But Christian ethics are distinctive. They are not just anyone's ethics. Indeed, if the Christian vision is not distinct from other moral frameworks, then what is so special about Christ and our story? For many, Jesus has simply become nothing more than a 'personal' and 'private' motivator to the same common ideals, which are shared by all. So, how do we live distinctively in a time of uncertainty? How do we see the world through the eyes of Christ? What tools do we need for the complex choices that confront us, in order to live well; to live Christ centred lives in the 21st century? This book provides this kind of help in a clearly, written accessible style with discussion questions making this useful for small-group use."--Publisher's description
