  • Breath Prayer: An Ancient Practice for the Everyday Sacred

    Breath Prayer: An Ancient Practice for the Everyday Sacred

    Christine Valters Paintner, abbess of Abbey of the Arts, introduces us to the spiritual practice of breath prayer and offers beautiful poem-prayers for walking, working, dressing, cleaning, sitting in silence, doing the dishes, living in community--breathing the divine into our daily lives. Over time these recitations become as natural as breathing. We don't so much recite the prayers as the prayers recite us, guide us, and open our hearts to the everyday sacred.

  • Black Lives Matter to Jesus: The Salvation of Black Life and All Life in Luke and Acts

    Black Lives Matter to Jesus: The Salvation of Black Life and All Life in Luke and Acts

    Black-skinned people were and are included in the family of God, demonstrating that all colors in the family of God have dignity. This view bolsters a Christian anti-racist agenda. This work attempts to undermine Christian racism that has deemed Black skin inherently problematic, showing that the destruction of racism is at the heart of the gospel of Jesus.

  • Paul on Identity: Theology as Politics

    Paul on Identity: Theology as Politics

    One of the most important and controversial questions in biblical studies is how Paul's view of the fundamental Christ identity relates to other possible identities in the Greco-Roman world--like being a Jew or a non-Jew, a man or a woman, a master or a slave. Paul on Identity explores these issues and, in particular, how Paul's view informs his writing. Engberg-Pedersen keeps an eye on what we may or may not accept from Paul and concludes by showing Paul's direct relevance to identity politics.

  • Journeys of Asian Diaspora: Mapping Originations and Destinations

    Journeys of Asian Diaspora: Mapping Originations and Destinations

    This is a collection of essays by Asian-diaspora Christian scholars about their communities in different parts of the world. It paints a portrait of the widespread dispersion and establishment of distinctively Asian Christian communities in their places of settlement. The book makes a case about how migration of people has made Asian Christianity more global and how Asian-diaspora communities are playing a decisive role in transforming and advancing Christian faith in the twenty-first century.

  • The Liberation of Method: The Ethics of Emancipatory Biblical Interpretation

    The Liberation of Method: The Ethics of Emancipatory Biblical Interpretation

    The field of biblical studies has championed the historical-critical method as the only way to guarantee objective interpretation. But in recent decades, scholars have pursued hermeneutical approaches that provide interpretations useful for marginalized communities who see the Bible as a resource in their struggles against oppression. Such liberative strategies remain on the margins. The Liberation of Method argues that this marginality must end, and that liberative methods should become central to biblical studies.

  • A New Climate for Christology: Kenosis, Climate Change, and Befriending Nature

    A New Climate for Christology: Kenosis, Climate Change, and Befriending Nature

    For decades, Sallie McFague lent her voice and theological imagination to advocating for the most important issues of our time. In this final book, finished before her death in 2019, McFague summarizes the work of a lifetime with a clear call to live in "such a way that all might flourish." The way, she argues, is the "kenotic interpretation of Christianity: the odd arrangement whereby in order to gain your life, you must lose it."

  • Athena to Barbie: Bodies, Archetypes, and Women's Search for Self

    Athena to Barbie: Bodies, Archetypes, and Women's Search for Self

    Athena to Barbie destabilizes a range of received social constructions of woman and expands the ways women conceive of themselves as female subjects. In the end, it inspires women's imagination about themselves, grounds that imagination in history by comparison, and empowers the lived lives of women. The book challenges the long-standing subordination of women and offers women fruitful, if still vexed, options to express female agency. It does all this in conversation with Christian tradition.
