Community and Self Definition in the Book of Acts: A Study of Early Christianity's Strategic Response to the World

Author: 

I-Morphé, Randee O.

Credentials: 

Lecturer at ECWA Theological Seminary in Jos, Nigeria

This work examines early Christian self-definition and response to the world, according to the book of Acts. The author argues that early Christian self-definition and mission are intertwined. In other words, early Christian identity was at the same time the nascent faith's response to the world of paganism and Judaism. This book examines the historiography of Acts, the history of Redemption, the socio-ethnic and theological dimensions of earliest Christian self-definition, and the concepts of conversion, identity and mission.

The Saint and the Disciple: John Henry, Cardinal Newman, The Reverend George Dudley Ryder and the Catholic Revival in Nineteenth Century England

Author: 

Hunting, Penelope

Credentials: 

Ph.D (University of London), Fellow, FSA

This monograph is a long overdue study of the relationship between Cardinal Newman and George Dudley Ryder and arrives at an opportune moment for the revival of interest in Newman and his circle---the beatification of Newman on the Pope's official visit to England in September 2010. Dr Hunting recovered two sets of family papers relating to Newman, George Ryder (grandson of the Earl of Harrowby),the Wilberforces,Sargents and the Mannings. These families along with the Kebles,Clutters and Froudes were interlinked by marriage, education and,in many cases ,conversion to Roman Catholicism.

The Fountain of Life: John Calvin, the Devotio Moderna and Metaphorical Theology of Trinity, Word, and Sacrament

Author: 

Murphy, Reverend Joseph P.

Credentials: 

Ph.D,Religious Studies,Drew University; M.Div.,M.Phil, Diplomate in Anglican Studies

Metaphor has been widely studied in literature, philosophy, and linguistics in the 20th and 21st centuries. Prior to this recent study, metaphor was especially important to Christian theology, although older views of metaphor as verbal adornment controlled its understanding. Far less focus has been given to metaphor’s contribution by orthodox Christian theology in the last century than might be expected given the significant interest in the phenomenon in other disciplines.

Author: 

Kalpakli, Fatma

Credentials:

It is through this prism that Dr Kapakli discusses,compares and contrasts Indian nationalism in three seminal novels. The novels in question are Shadow of the Moon (1957)by Mary Margaret Kaye, the Siege of Knishnapur(1973) by James Gordon Smith and White Teeth (2000)by Zadie Smith.

Authority, Dogma and History: The Role of the Oxford Movement Converts in the Papal Infallibility Debates

Author: 

Parker, Kenneth and Pahls, Michael J., Editors

Credentials: 

Ph.Ds; D/Theological History, St Louis University

As the force that gave birth to Anglo-Catholicism, the Oxford Movement is generally treated as an Anglican phenomenon. Yet the influence of members who converted to Roman Catholicism proved decisive for the years leading up to the First Vatican Council and the definition of papal infallibility in Pastor Aeternus (1870).
