In The Day the Revolution Began Tom Wright invites you to consider the full meaning of the event at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus’ crucifixion. As he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope, Wright once again challenges commonly held beliefs, this time arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in reshaping our understanding of the Cross. With his characteristic rigour and incisiveness, he goes back to the New Testament to show that Jesus’ death not only releases us from the guilt and power of sin, but is nothing less than the beginning of a world-wide revolution that continues to this day – a revolution that creates and energizes a movement responsible for restoring and reconciling the whole of God’s creation. The Day the Revolution Began will take you to a new level in your appreciation of the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice: opening up its powerful and amazing implications, inspiring you with a renewed sense of purpose and hope, and reminding you of the crucial role you can play in the world-transforming movement that Jesus started.
A dramatic tension confronts every Christian believer and interpreter of Scripture: on the one hand, we encounter images of God commanding and engaging in horrendous violence: one the other hand, we encounter the non-violent teachings and example of Jesus, whose loving, self-sacrificial death and resurrection is held up as the supreme revelation of God’s character in the New Testament. How do we reconcile the tension between these seemingly disparate depictions? Are they even capable of reconciliation? Throughout Christian history, many different answers have been proposed, ranging from the long-rejected explanation that these contrasting depictions are of two entirely different ‘gods’ to recent social and cultural theories of metaphor and narrative representation. The Crucifixion of the Warrior God takes up this dramatic tension and the range of proposed answers in an epic constructive investigation. Over two volumes, renowned theologian and biblical scholar Gregory A. Boyd argues that we must take seriously the full range of Scripture as inspired, including its violent depictions of God. At the same time, we must take just as seriously the absolute centrality of the crucified and risen Christ as the supreme revelation of God. Developing a theological interpretation of Scripture that he labels a “cruciform hermeneutic,” Boyd demonstrates how Scripture’s violent images of God are completely reframed and their violence subverted when they are interpreted through the lens of the cross and resurrection. Indeed, when read through this lens, Boyd argues that these violent depictions can be shown to bear witness to the same self-sacrificial character of God that was supremely revealed on the cross.
According to the Christian faith, Jesus Christ is the ultimate revelation not only of the nature of God the Creator but also of how God the Creator relates to the created order. The New Testament explicitly relates the act of creation to the person of Jesus Christ - who is also a participant within creation, and who is said, by his acts of participation, to have secured creation's ultimate redemption from the problems which presently afflict it. Christian theology proposes that Jesus Christ, the incarnate Word and Wisdom of God, the agent in whom the Spirit of God is supremely present among us, is the rationale and the telos of all things - time-space as we experience and explore it; nature and all its enigmas; matter itself. Christology is thus utterly fundamental to a theology of creation, as this is unfolded both in Scripture and in early Christian theology. For all this, the contemporary conversation about science and faith tends, to a remarkable degree, to neglect the significance of Jesus Christ, focusing instead on a generic "God of wonder" or "God of natural theology." Such general theism is problematic from the perspective of Christian theology on many levels and has at times led to a more or less deistic theology: the impression that God has created the world, then largely left it to itself. Such a theology is far removed from classical Christian renderings of creation, providence, redemption, and eschatology. According to these, the theology of creation is not just about remote "beginnings," or the distant acts of a divine originator. Rather, the incarnate Jesus Christ is himself - remarkably - the means and the end for which creation itself exists. If we would think aright about our world, study it and live within it wisely, we must reckon centrally with his significance. What might such a bold claim possibly mean, and why is Jesus Christ said by Christian theology to be so important for understanding God's overall relationship to the created order? What does this importance mean for science? Christ and the Created Order addresses these questions by gathering insights from biblical scholars, theologians, historians, philosophers, and scientists. This interdisciplinary collection of essays reflects on the significance of Jesus Christ for understanding the created world, particularly as that world is observed by the natural sciences. Contributors to Christ and the Created Order include Marilyn McCord Adams, Richard Bauckham, Deborah Haarsma, Paul Moser, Murray Rae, James K. A. Smith, Norman Wirzba, N. T. Wright, and more.
English summary: In this volume, Anja Klein presents a literary and theological historical analysis of the historical psalms Exodus 15, Psalms 78, 105, 106, 114, 135 and 136. As well as providing an editorial differentiation of the texts on the basis of their chronology, she attempts to clarify references to the Scriptures in each individual psalm. She shows that the reception of the biblical story begins with the Song of the Sea in Exodus 15 within the context of the narrative itself and from there finds its way into the book of Psalms. This line of interpretation continues in the texts of the Psalterium with varying points of focus, resulting in an ongoing discourse on the biblical narrative. This dynamic form of interpretation can best be described as a process of quest for identity and identity determination by the Jews of the Bible who thereby assure themselves of their history in their God's presence. As prayer texts, the historical psalms evoke a ritualistic essence and allow for the adoption of a historically grounded identity in the recital and praying of the psalms. German description: Anja Klein legt eine literar- und theologiegeschichtliche Analyse der Geschichtspsalmen Ex 15, Ps 78, 105, 106, 114, 135 und 136 vor. Neben der redaktionsgeschichtlichen Differenzierung der Texte widmet sie sich in dieser Arbeit der Erhellung der Schriftbezuge in den einzelnen Psalmen. Dabei zeigt sie, dass die Rezeption der biblischen Geschichte mit dem Meerlied Ex 15 im Kontext der Geschichte selbst beginnt und von dort Eingang in das Psalmenbuch findet. Die Texte des Psalters fuhren die Auslegungslinie mit unterschiedlichen Schwerpunkten weiter, so dass sich ein fortlaufender Diskurs uber die biblische Geschichte ergibt. Dieser dynamische Auslegungsvorgang kann als Prozess der Identitatssuche und Identitatsbestimmung des biblischen Judentums beschrieben werden, das sich darin der Geschichte mit seinem Gott vergewissert. In ihrer Form als Gebetstexte evozieren die Geschichtspsalmen einen kultischen Ruckraum und erlauben die Aneignung der geschichtlich begrundeten Identitat im Nach-Lesen und Nach-Beten der Psalmen.
