In Postmodernizing the Faith, respected theologian Millard Erickson explores six evangelical responses--both positive and negative--to postmodernism and offers his own reaction to the movement. Erickson's purpose is "to introduce readers to postmodernism, to sensitize them to the importance of the issues, and to show them some samples of differing evangelical responses."
Following an introductory chapter describing postmodernism, Erickson presents the responses of three evangelicals who consider the movement incompatible with orthodox Christianity. Next he details the thought of three evangelicals who believe "postmodernism is a development that needs to be accepted, and Christian theology done in light of it, and incorporating at least some of it." In each chapter Erickson offers a judicious critique, highlighting both the strengths and weaknesses of the particular view being discussed.
A TRINDADE EXPLICADA
As 3 questões cruciais:
- A doutrina de ser Trindade é bíblica?
- A doutrina da Trindade faz sentido?
- A doutrina da Trindade faz alguma diferença?
Muitas vezes recitamos a frase "Pai, Filho e Espírito Santo" na liturgia da igreja e nas orações. Mas, apesar de sua familiaridade, o quanto realmente entendemos e apreciamos a natureza trina de Deus?
Em A Trindade Explicada, Millard J. Erickson demonstra o fundamento bíblico, a lógica e a importância da Trindade. Os esforços únicos de Erickson ilustram vários ensinamentos históricos sobre a Trindade e os comparam com o que a Bíblia diz sobre o assunto. Além de demonstrar a base bíblica da Trindade, Erickson aponta como a doutrina faz sentido e a diferença que faz em nossa fé.
Quando explorada com rigor e fé, a doutrina da Trindade tem muito a nos ensinar sobre a essência de Deus, bem como sobre nossos relacionamentos uns com os outros.
Does God know the future? Or is the future unknowable to even God? Open theists believe the search for biblical answers will spark a new Revolution. Are they right? Arguing that God interacts with his creatures spontaneously, the controversial new movement known as “open theism” has called classic church theology up for reexamination. Confronting this view, classic theists maintain that God has complete foreknowledge and that open-theist arguments are unorthodox. Each view has implications for our vision of the future and of God’s dealings with humanity.
Reclaiming the Center is a valuable contribution to the study of contemporary evangelicalism. It is a guide for how evangelicals can move forward with wisdom and discernment without succumbing to the spirit of this age.
In both subtle and distinct ways, postmodernism has permeated American life, becoming a part of our schools, our TV shows, our churches, our conversations, and even our own thinking. How often have we said or heard, "Do what you want, but don't push your values on me," or "You live your life, and I'll live mine"?
Its sheer pervasiveness demands that we ask: Is there anything wrong with postmodernism, or with the tolerance, pluralism, individualism, and casualness that it promotes?
With compelling illustrations from current events and everyday life, as well as his customary sound analysis, Millard Erickson equips discerning evangelical Christians not only to understand and recognize the phenomenon of postmodernism but to deal with its effects in a relevant, biblically minded way. As he unearths its evolution, he forcefully reveals postmodernism's inherent problems and its incoherence with the teachings of God's Word. He also unveils the greatest areas of concern for Christians and gives people the tools they need to respond more wisely, believe more certainly, and discern more soundly in this confusing age.
Seeks to bring the original dictionary up-to-date by supplementing it with pertinent ideas and biographies from the past fifteen years, with an emphasis on the historical figures and movements of the first nineteen centuries of Christianity.
God the Father Almighty is a companion volume to Erickson's other theological monographs (God in Three Persons and The Word Became Flesh).
