  1. Jesus and the Resurrection

    Jesus and the Resurrection

    Our aim here is to build a bridge between Muslims and Christians with Jesus in the centre of the discourse. As an idea, 'resurrection' is shared by and is central to the eschatologies of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. In Islam, the belief in life after death, resurrection and the day of judgement are so central that they are considered to be one of its ‘Five Pillars’. Life has meaning because in resurrection, humanity will meet its maker on the Day of Judgement. Learn More

  2. From this World to the Next: Christian Identity and Funerary Rites in Nepal

    From this World to the Next: Christian Identity and Funerary Rites in Nepal

    This book explores funerary rite struggles in a nation where Christianity is a comparatively recent phen omenon, where many families are multi-faith and go through traumatic experiences at the death of their family members. The author has used an applied theological approach to address the issue of funerary rites with which the Nepalese church is struggling. Learn More

  3. God Has Not left Himself Without Witness

    God Has Not left Himself Without Witness

    Since its earliest inception the Christian Church has had to address the question of what common ground exists between Christian faiths and other religions. This study presents a case for the revitalisation of the fulfilment tradition based on a recovery and assessment of the fulfilment approaches of Indian Christian converts in the pre-independence period. It focuses on the views of Krishna Mohan Banerjea and Sadhu Sundar Singh. The fulfilment approaches of Indian converts help authenticate the plausibility of fulfilment theology, by confirming its adequacy over alternative explanations and affirming the particular truth claims of the Christian faith, whilst also ascribing genuine value to the religious traditions and experience of people of other faiths. Rev. Dr Richard Howell (Evangelical Fellowship of India and Asia Evangelical Alliance) writes: 'Rev. Dr Ivan Satyavrata exhibits a rare quality of an astute theologian thinker and a Churchman who is passionate to communicate to Christ in ways that are scripturally faithful and contextually relevant. A must read for theologians and mission workers'. Learn More

  4. Jesus and the Incarnation: Reflections of Christians from Islamic Contexts

    Jesus and the Incarnation: Reflections of Christians from Islamic Contexts

    In the dialogue of Christians with Muslims nothing is more fundamental than the Cross, the Incarnation and the Resurrection of Jesus. This book contains voices of Christians living in various 'Islamic contexts' and reflecting on the Incarnation of Jesus. The aim of these reflections is constructive and the hope is that the papers weaved around the notion of 'the Word' will not only promote dialogue among Christians on the roles of the Person and the Book, but, also, create a positive environment for their conversations with Muslim neighbours.

  5. Civilisations in Conflict? Islam, the West and Christian Faith

    Civilisations in Conflict? Islam, the West and Christian Faith

    Samuel Huntington’s thesis, which argues that there appear to be aspects of Islam that could be on a collision course with the politics and values of Western societies, has provoked much controversy. The purpose of this study is to offer a particular response to Huntington’s thesis by making a comparison between the origins of Islam and Christianity; the two religions that can be said to have shaped, in contrasting ways, the history of the Western world. The early history of each faith continues to have a profound impact on the way in which their respective followers have interpreted the relationship between faith and political life. The book draws significant, critical and creative conclusions from the analysis for contemporary intercultural understanding, and in particular for the debate about the justification of violence for political and religious ends.

  6. Christianity and Education: Shaping of Christian Context in Thinking

    Christianity and Education: Shaping of Christian Context in Thinking

    Bernard Farr and David Emmanuel Singh Christianity and Education is a collection of papers published in Transformation: An International Journal of Holistic Mission Studies over a period of 15 years. It brings to life some of the papers that lay buried in shelves and in disparate volumes of Transformation, under a single volume for theological libraries, students and teachers. The articles here represent a spectrum of Christian thinking addressing issues of institutional development for theological education, theological studies in the context of global mission, contextually aware/informed education, and academies which deliver such education, methodologies and personal reflections.

  7. The Handbook of Theological Education in World Christianity

    The Handbook of Theological Education in World Christianity

    Theological education is vital for the future of World Christianity—this conviction lies at the heart of this publication. Theological education has the potential to be the seedbed for the renewal of churches, their ministries, mission, and commitment to Christian unity. If theological education is neglected by church leaders or in funding, the consequences are far reaching; they might not be visible immediately, but they will certainly become manifest over time in the theological competence of church leadership, the holistic nature of mission, and the capacities for ecumenical and interfaith dialogue and the interaction between church and society. Investment in theological education is investment of hope in the future and mission of World Christianity. The transmission of Christian memory, the education for God’s peace and justice, and the formation for church and community leadership therefore should be priorities in all churches; however, in many places theological education is far from secure or even in crisis at the present time.

  8. Eschatology and Ecology Experiences of the Korean Church

    Eschatology and Ecology Experiences of the Korean Church

    This book raises the question of why Korean people, and Korean Protestant Christians in particular, pay so little attention to ecological issues. The author argues that there is an important connection (or elective affinity) between this lack of attention and the other-worldly eschatology that is so dominant within Korean Protestant Christianity.

  9. Revisioning Christian Unity: The Global Christian Forum

    Revisioning Christian Unity: The Global Christian Forum

    REVISIONING CHRISTIAN UNITY – The Global Christian Forum puts on record the story of the Global Christian Forum gathering that took place on 6 – 9 November 2007 at the Jumuia Conference and Country Home in Limuru, near Nairobi, Kenya. That gathering turned out to be an extraordinary and historic event, a new departure in the search for Christian unity and common witness involding all the main traditions of the Christian church worldwide. It was a decisive moment in a process that began in 1998 and since then continues to gain momentum. To preserve the memory and provide access to the full collection of documents for contemporary and furture church workers, theologians, students and researchers is, therefore, the main purpose of this volume.

  10. Handbook of Theological Education in Africa

    Handbook of Theological Education in Africa

    This Handbook of Theological Education in Africa is a fascinating witness to the explosive status quo of Theological Education. The historical and regional (inter alia) surveys open our eyes and ears to see and hear how fast it has taken root historically, geographically, and ecum- enically. The landscape of African Theological Education has changed drastically during the final twenty to thirty years of the last century. There is very much to appreciate about it and what has been achieved. We have grounds to make us rejoice, and for which to thank the Lord. Learn More
