The captain from Connecticut : the life and naval times of Isaac Hull by Linda M Maloney( )

7 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Captain from Connecticut is the definitive biography of the man who became a national hero as the commander of the USS Constitution in her dramatic victory over HMS Guerriere in the War of 1812. While Isaac Hull's outstanding seamanship was in evidence throughout his career, Maloney makes the case that it is ironic that he is remembered for his tactical prowess in this famous battle, because he was actually the most pacific of men
Hebrews by Mary Ann Beavis( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hebrews seems like unpromising material for feminist interpretation, although it is the only New Testament writing for which female authorship has been seriously posited. Mary Ann Beavis and HyeRan Kim-Cragg highlight the similarities between Hebrews and the book of Wisdom/Sophia, which share cosmological, ethical, historical, and sapiential themes, revealing that Hebrews is in fact a submerged tradition of Sophia-Wisdom. They also tackle the sacrificial Christology of Hebrews, concluding that in its ancient context, far from symbolizing suffering and abjection, sacrifice was understood as celebratory and relational. Contributions from Filipina (Maricel and Marilou Ibita), Jewish (Justin Jaron Lewis), historical (Nancy Calvert-Koyzis), and First Nations (Marie Annharte Baker) perspectives bring additional scholarly, cultural, religious, and experiential wisdom to the commentary
No irrelevant Jesus : on Jesus and the church today by Gerhard Lohfink( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is Jesus relevant for today? If you think not, don't bother with this book. But if you think that Jesus might have something to say to today's world, which Jesus comes to mind? Is he "gentle Jesus, meek and mild," offering individual salvation but with no message for a suffering world? Is he to be remembered as a Zealot fighting for a hopeless cause or as an outstanding rabbi? Was he a prophet in the long series of Israel's prophets or a religious founder like Muhammad or Gautama? Or was Jesus unique, a man utterly consumed by zeal for the reign of God, by the "fierce urgency of now," the leader of a movement dedicated to God's cause but committed to nonviolence and living for others? If we seek him, can we find him in the churches? In No Irrelevant Jesus, Gerhard Lohfink, author of the acclaimed Jesus of Nazareth, explores these questions and offers a resounding yes to the relevance of Jesus today

Does God need the church? : toward a theology of the people of God by Gerhard Lohfink( )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are not al religions equally close to and equally far from God? Why, then, the Church? Gerhard Lohfink poses these questions with scholarly reliability and on the basis of his own experience of community in Does God Need the Church?In 1982 Father Lohfink wrote Wie hat Jesus Gemeinde gewollt? (translated into English asJesus and Community) to show, on the basis of the New Testament, that faith is founded in a community that distinguishes itself in clear contours from the rest of society. In that book he also described a sequence of events that moved directly from commonality to a community that was readily accessible to every group of people and was made legitimate by Jesus himself. Only later did Father Lohfink learn, within a new horizon of experience, that such a description is not the way to community. The story of the gathering of the people of God, from Abraham until today, never took place according to such a model. Today Father Lohfink states that he would not write Wie hat Jesus Gemeinde gewollt? the same way. The situation of belief and believers has undergone a shift: the question of the Church has become much more urgent. Church life is declining and the religions are returning, often in new guises. In light of these shifts and the change in his own view of community, Father Lohfink inquires in Does God Need the Church? of Israel's theology, Jesus' praxis, the experiences of the early Christian communities, and of what is appearing in the Church today. These inquiries lead to an amazing history involving God and the world - a history that God presses forward with the aid of a single people and that always turns out differently from what they think and plan. Gerhard Lohfink, ThD, was professor of New Testament exegesis at the University of Tubingen until 1986 when he resigned from his professorship in order to live and work as a theologian in the Catholic Integrierte Gemeinde and its community of priests
The New Testament : a literary history by Gerd Theissen( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerd Theissen takes up the problem of the emergence of the New Testament canon out of the wide variety of early Christian literature. Drawing from Max Weber's discussion of the evolution of religious organizations, Theissen describes the development of early Christian literature as a series of phases in the life of the movement: the charismatic, the pseudepigraphic, the functional, and the canonical"--Publisher description
The theology of Martin Luther : a critical assessment by Hans-Martin Barth( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does Martin Luther have anything to say to us today? Nearly five hundred years after the beginning of the Reformation, Hans-Martin Barth explores that question in this comprehensive and critical evaluation of Luther's theology. Rich in its extent and in its many facets, Barth's didactically well-planned work begins with clarifications about obsolete and outdated images of Luther that could obstruct access to the Reformer. The second part covers the whole of Martin Luther's theology. Having divided Luther's theology into twelve subsections, Barth ends each one of these with an honest and frank assessment of what today can be salvaged and what's got to go. In the final section he gives his summation: an honestly critical appropriation of Luther's theology can still be existentially inspiring and globally relevant for the twenty-first century."--Publisher description
Woman and man in Paul : overcoming a misunderstanding by Norbert Baumert( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Attempting to readjust traditional views of the Apostle Paul as relatively insensitive to, and completely caught up in, the gender biases between men and women in his own day, Norbert Baumert, S.J., in this work, tries to clarify the issues. Through a painstaking restudy of Paul's original language in his letters, and the reformation of the interpretations this affords, interwoven with the input of the Early Church Fathers, Baumert helps us glimpse Paul's gender attitudes in a fresh and surprisingly revealing light. By fleshing out the context - legal, linguistic, and gender-related - of Paul's thoughtworld, and by comparing it with that of today, Baumert suggests that we, both as Christian individuals and as Church, may have to do our own contemporary rethinking of the relations between men and women in terms of sexuality, marriage, and celibacy, based on these new Pauline insights
Introduction to the study of liturgy by Albert Gerhards( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zusammenfassung: Worship is at the heart of the Christian faith. This applies equally to all denominations. For that reason it is all the more important that the ordering of worship and its place in the life of the church is regularly rewritten and reinterpreted. This volume--based on the third, completely revised German edition from 2013 by two of the foremost liturgical scholars in Germany--offers a contemporary, comprehensive introduction to the foundations for the study of liturgy today, one from which scholars and students in the English-speaking world can also profit. Beyond appealing to students of liturgy and theology, this book reaches out to everyone who wants to know more about the liturgical essence and dimensions of the church
Women who wrestled with God : biblical stories of Israel's beginnings by Irmtraud Fischer( )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is common to read the Bible as tracing Israel's origins to the patriarchs, who received God's promises and with whom began the history of God and the chosen people. This view matches neither the biblical traditions nor Judaism's self-understanding. Israel tells of its beginnings as the people of God quite pointedly as a story of women, together with their husbands and children. Women Who Wrestled with God examines the story from Genesis through Ruth. It contributes to the elimination of anti-Jewish cliches and portrays the significance of women for a Christianity that builds on this story."--Jacket

Prayer takes us home : the theology and practice of Christian prayer by Gerhard Lohfink( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lot of people would like to learn to pray all over again. Others are not so sure they ought to pray. They want to know whether prayer will help them and, more than that, whether it will be of any use at all to our world. This book gives an answer--not in the form of glib instructions, but by introducing the reader to the theology of prayer. It refers again and again to the Bible, especially the Psalms. At the same time, it speaks about personal experiences as well. Gerhard Lohfink writes in inviting, easy-to-read language, answering questions such as : To whom do we pray? Does it make any sense to ask for things in prayer? What happens in the Eucharistic Prayer? What is so special about the Psalms? How can I practice Christian meditation? This book offers an inviting approach to Christian prayer
1 Esdras by Dieter Böhler( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 Esdras is an alternative version of the book of Ezra-Nehemiah in the Septuagint. Most Eastern Orthodox churches accord the book canonical status. This is the first commentary on 1 Esdras based on the critical text of the Göttingen Septuagint edition. It understands 1 Esdras not simply as a fragment of the Chronistic history or as merely a compilation, but rather as a coherent narrative. Its interpretation as a literary work and the reconstruction of its composition take into account both the historical backgrounds of the narrative setting of the Persian period and the historical location of the composition in the Hasmonaean period. 1 Esdras is currently enjoying a period of renewed attention in scholarship. Its relationship to Ezra-Nehemiah is seen as a prime example of literary-historical developments in Israel. (Publisher)

The pseudepigraphal letters to the Thessalonians by Marlene Crüsemann( )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marlene Crüsemann examines the Thessalonian letters in the context of Jewish-Christian social history; building upon her analysis of 1 Thessalonians, Crüsemann comes to the conclusion that it is post-apostolic epistolary communication, and questions whether it is a letter of Paul and indeed whether it is an early letter. This analysis in turn adds weight to the thesis, propounded by some previous scholars, that the letter is somewhat out of place and may be a later work by another author. Crüsemann subsequently illustrates that 2 Thessalonians, by contrast, revokes the far-reaching social separation from Judaism that characterizes 1 Thessalonians, and thus aims socio-historically at a solidarity with the entire Jewish people. Analyzing the concept of the Jews as supposed enemy, the future of the Greek gentile community, and the relationship between the two letters, Crüsemann concludes that the discussion about a "divergence of the ways of Christians and Jews" in early Christian times needs to be realigned."--Back cover
Body symbolism in the Bible by Silvia Schroer( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many people with illnesses seek healing in religions and practices that are only weakly inculturated among us. Our understanding and use of such foreign wisdom is often just as superficial; but it is easily understood against the background of a centuries-long Christian tradition of interpreting the Bible in a way hostile to the body, particularly the female body. In Body Symbolism in the Bible, Schroer and Staubli offer a better understanding of this subject by exploring the symbolism of various body parts in the Bible. They reinterpret and thereby reclaim the notion of the body as a temple of God so that regard for the body can lead to respect for the human rights of women and men. Exploring the topic through the lenses of theological anthropology and biblical spirituality, their presentation will surely add clarity to our understanding and generate future discussion
