Nhan đề: Lost scriptures : books that did not make it into the New Testament / [edited by] Bart D. Ehrman Số phân loại : 229.9205 B109D; Đặc điểm vật lý: 342 Tr. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : We may think of the twenty-seven books of the New Testament as the only sacred writings of the early Christians, but this is not at all the case. Lost Scriptures offers an anthology of up-to-date and readable translations of many non-canonical writings from the first centuries after Christ--texts that have been for the most part lost or neglected for almost two millennia. .

Nhan đề: Lost Christianities : the battle for Scripture and the faiths we never knew / Bart D. Ehrman Số phân loại : 229.9206 B109; Đặc điểm vật lý: xv, 294Tr : minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : All of these groups insisted that they upheld the teachings of Jesus and his apostles, and they all possessed writings that bore out their claims, books reputedly produced by Jesus's own followers. Modern archaeological work has recovered a number of key texts, and as Ehrman shows, these spectacular discoveries reveal religious diversity that says much about the ways in which history gets written by the winners. Ehrman's discussion ranges from considerations of various "lost scriptures"--including forged gospels supposedly written by Simon Peter, Jesus's closest disciple, and Judas Thomas, Jesus's alleged twin brother--to the disparate beliefs of such groups as the Jewish-Christian Ebionites, the anti-Jewish Marcionites, and various "Gnostic" sects .

*Tóm tắt : Embracing the viewpoints of Catholic, Protestant, or Orthodox thinkers, of conservatives, liberals, radicals, and agnostics, Christianity today is anything but monolithic or univocal. In The Oxford Companion to Christian Thought, general editor Adrian Hastings has tried to capture a sense of the great diversity of opinion that swirls about under the heading of Christian thought. Indeed, the 260 contributors, who hail from twenty countries, represent as wide a range of perspectives as possible .

Nhan đề: America’s God : from Jonathan Edwards to Abraham Lincoln / Mark A. Noll Số phân loại : 230.0973 M345; Đặc điểm vật lý: 622Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : Religious life in early America is often equated with the fire-and-brimstone Puritanism best embodied by the theology of Cotton Mather. Yet, by the nineteenth century, American theology had shifted dramatically away from the severe European traditions directly descended from the Protestant Reformation, of which Puritanism was in the United States the most influential. In its place arose a singularly American set of beliefs. In America's God, Mark Noll has written a biography of this new American ethos .

*Tóm tắt : It develops a female procreative model of the creative suffering of the Triune God, an ecological ethics based on the midwife model of care, and a pastoral model of threefold differentiation of suffering in God as steps toward Christian praxis in response to the mystery of God within the pain, suffering, and death of cosmic existence and human experience .

Nhan đề: Jesus, apocalyptic prophet of the new millennium / Bart D. Ehrman Số phân loại : 232.908 B109; Đặc điểm vật lý: xi, 274Tr ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : In this sharply-written and persuasive book, Ehrman suggests that the apocalyptic fervor that perpetually grips large segments of society is nothing new. Indeed, history's many doomsayers, including those today who are frantic about the approaching millennium, are close in spirit and thinking to Jesus, who waited in vain for the imminent arrival of a new kingdom of peace .

Nhan đề: The Oxford handbook of eschatology / edited by Jerry L. Walls Số phân loại : 236 J206; Đặc điểm vật lý: xviii, 724 tr. : ill. ; 26 cm
*Tóm tắt : After the Enlightenment, though, many religious thinkers began to downplay the importance of eschatology which, in light of rationalism, came to be seen as something of an embarrassment. The twentieth century, however, saw the rise of phenomena that placed eschatology back at the forefront of religious thought. From the rapid expansion of fundamentalist forms of Christianity, with their focus on the end times; to the proliferation of apocalyptic new religious movements; to the recent (and very public) debates about suicide, martyrdom, and paradise in Islam, interest in eschatology is once again on the rise. In addition to its popular resurgence, in recent years some of the worlds most important theologians have returned eschatology to its former position of prominence .
