How can people of faith meet the challenge of living morally and faithfully within an increasingly globalized society? Much of the debate about the global market economy is polarized between pro-market ideology and anti-globalization activism. Global Neighbors sidesteps that dichotomy, presenting instead a nuanced, constructive approach. Leading theologians, ethicists, economists, and church leaders here examine the Christian call to live morally, faithfully, and responsibly in today's global marketplace and offer alternative perspectives to such utilitarians as Peter Singer. Contributors: Robert D. Austin Rebecca M. Blank Lee Devin William Goettler Eric Gregory Douglas A. Hicks Janet Parker Rebecca Todd Peters Shirley J.

How do different Christian denominations in the United States approach immigration issues? In Immigrant Neighbors among Us, U.S. Hispanic scholars creatively mine the resources of their theological traditions to reflect on one of the most controversial issues of our day. Representative theologians from Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Methodist/Wesleyan, Pentecostal, and Independent Evangelical church families show how biblical narratives, historical events, systematic frameworks, ethical principles, and models of ministry shape their traditions' perspectives on immigrant neighbors, law, and reform. Each chapter provides questions for dialogue.

Praying is the second in a series of books that offer Christians a new way of understanding what it means to live and worship among America's many faiths, and introduces them to the religions that make up the American neighborhood. Praying will explore public, family, and individual worship in Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Baha'i, Zoroastrianism, American indigenous spiritualites, Chinese spiritualities (Confucianism, Taoism), Shinto, and Afro-Caribbean religions. Praying answers and discusses questions such as these: How does your religion understand/measure the passage of time: daily, weekly, annually, over the course of a lifetime? What is the vocabulary of ritual and practice in your religion? (e.g., worship, prayer, meditation, pilgrimage, feasting and fasting) Is there a distinction between public and private/individual worship/practice in your religion? What are this religion's most distinctive practices? What makes them so significant? Praying includes a quick guide to each religion, a glossary, and recommended reading.

This book offers a contemporary interpretation of John Wesley's theology. Here are a few of the themes: the relation of prayer and the task of theology, war and peace, the controversy over the homosexual lifestye, abortion, the right of private judgment and religious toleration, the commands of love, the implications of deconstructionism and postmodernism, Wesley as a serious theologian, divine sovereignty and human freedom, the preconditions for living well and dying well. These issues, among others, are discussed with ease and grace as the reader is invited to consider the significance of Wesley's thinking for today. "This book reflects the veteran insights of a Wesley Scholar whose mind and heart have been shaped by the best of the Wesleyan tradition. Contemporary theology, biblical studies, and social/moral/political issues are interpreted from the perspective of the theology of John Wesley and his relevance for today. The author has served the Church as pastor, college and seminary professor, and seminary president. He combines a pastoral and academic approach that integrates the practical and theoretical disciplines in fresh and relevant ways. His conversational, and even poetic style, informed by seasoned familiarity with his sources, will engage both the theological student and the general reader, and will challenge both to a life-changing encounter with John Wesley's witness to vital Christianity." -- J. Steven O'Malley Asbury Theological Seminary "Leon Hynson brings together the theology of John Wesley and the best of today's Christian thinking in these essays. As well, the author offers a clear explanation of Wesley's thought in the context of his 18th century sources. Hynsonshows how Wesley both synthesized and critiqued such thinkers as the Early Church Fathers, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Thomas Cranmer, Richard Hooker, Jeremy Taylor, John Locke, Puritanism, Pietism, and Anglicanism. In a remarkably instructive fashion and with compelling prose, the author brings Wesley's thought into conversation with contemporary theologians and ethicists, including Karl Barth, H. Richard Niebuhr, Albert Outler, Robert Jenson, Martin Hengel, Theodore Runyon, Gerald R. Cragg, and Alasdair MacIntyre. This noteworthy volume brims with the mature wisdom of an experienced pastor and theological scholar." -- Kenneth Cain Kinghorn Asbury Theological Seminary

Its heart is an edited collection of Lutheran Forum articles, with other published work and new material adding dimension to some of the themes explored in these pages. This collection provides diverse soundings of parish life in the Gospel and suggests a Lutheran theology of the parish, but one that is accessible and relevant across the ecumenical diversity of the One Body of Christ. For pastors and lay readers, this book seeks to support the ministry of congregations, as well as inspiring and provoking dialogue in local parishes.

Meeting people of other faiths is an everyday experience not only for minority Christian communities in Asia and the Middle East but increasingly for Christians elsewhere. Yet although interfaith dialogue has established itself as a key concern for the churches and the ecumenical movement, it continues to raise spiritual, social, political, practical and theological concerns in many quarters. The insights in this book draw on the author's wide range of personal experiences -- as a child, student and Methodist pastor in Sri Lanka; as a participant in the controversial discussion of interfaith dialogue at the World Council of Churches' fifth assembly (Nairobi 1975); as a student of Hinduism; and especially as a longtime staff member and director of the WCC's dialogue programme. Weaving together accounts from daily life, ecumenical texts and discussions, and theological reflection, this book offers a clear and challenging introduction to key issues that arise again and again when Christians and churches enter into conversation with their neighbours of other faiths -- among them interfaith prayer, interfaith marriage, religion and conflict, and dialogue and mission.
