In clear prose, Minear sets forth the heart of the early church's proclaimation and shows its enduring relevance for the modern church.

Moltmann's basic themes and achievements evocatively presented J rgen Moltmann is arguably the most important German-speaking Protestant thinker since World War II. Recent publication of Experiences in Theology completes his six "Contributions to Systematic Theology" and makes possible an informed and intelligent overview of this theological giant's lifework.M ller-Fahrenholz traces Moltmann's thought from the beginnings in his conversion experience in a British P.O.W. camp and his decisive encounter with both the Holocaust and the cross, to his archimedean insights in Theology of Hope and The Crucified God. He then examines Moltmann's turn to liberation theology in 1979 and the flowering of his thought in the systematic volumes since then.The Kingdom and the Power gets at "the theological passion on which Moltmann's manifold and extensive work draws" and explains the chief themes: the future as a horizon of hope, the suffering God, the dynamics of Trinity, as well as its relation to recent German theology and its use of Reformatoin, Jewish, and other thought.
Why has power in the West assumed the form of an "economy," that is, of a government of men and things? If power is essentially government, why does it need glory, that is, the ceremonial and liturgical apparatus that has always accompanied it? In the early centuries of the Church, in order to reconcile monotheism with God's threefold nature, the doctrine of Trinity was introduced in the guise of an economy of divine life. It was as if the Trinity amounted to nothing more than a problem of managing and governing the heavenly house and the world. Agamben shows that, when combined with the idea of providence, this theological-economic paradigm unexpectedly lies at the origin of many of the most important categories of modern politics, from the democratic theory of the division of powers to the strategic doctrine of collateral damage, from the invisible hand of Smith's liberalism to ideas of order and security. But the greatest novelty to emerge from The Kingdom and the Glory is that modern power is not only government but also glory, and that the ceremonial, liturgical, and acclamatory aspects that we have regarded as vestiges of the past actually constitute the basis of Western power. Through a fascinating analysis of liturgical acclamations and ceremonial symbols of power—the throne, the crown, purple cloth, the Fasces, and more—Agamben develops an original genealogy that illuminates the startling function of consent and of the media in modern democracies. With this book, the work begun with Homo Sacer reaches a decisive point, profoundly challenging and renewing our vision of politics.
Compelling biblical evidence that Christians today should expect God to heal the sick, free the captives and, most of all, be miraculously present when the Gospel is proclaimed. This book takes the debate over the "signs and wonders" movement to a new level of biblical scholarship.
