  • 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.

  • Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science

    Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science

    Science may be the biggest threat to teenage faith today, but Andrew Root demonstrates that, in fact, the two are not incompatible. Root, a renowned expert on adolescent spirituality, shows how science overstates its claims on truth, while faith often understates its own claims. Both faith and science frame the experience and reality of teenagers, and both have something valuable to offer as adolescents develop. Drawing on a fictional account of a youth pastor and the various students he encounters, Root paints a compelling picture of how faith can flourish, even in our scientific age.
