Benefaction and Patronage in Leadersh...

Since antiquity, many have come to view benefaction and patronage in a negative light, largely due to the increasingly immoral motives of those involved in systems that can be exploitative or corrupt. Dr Nathan Joshua provides a counter to this view and instead draws attention to the goodness of godly benefaction and patronage from an African Christian perspective. This is a valuable resource addressing the need for leadership with integrity, and challenging the negative outlook surrounding benefaction and patronage today.

Gender and Development: A History of ...

Dr Onyango uses gender as a tool to provide a detailed analysis of the role of Christian missions in the education, and societal development, of girls in Kenya. Highlighting the interaction between Christian missionaries and African culture, Onyango skilfully explores the history of both Christianity and women in Kenya. The result of this study is a thorough and engaging contribution to African Christian history that gives a voice to the history of African women.

Women and Pride: An Exploration of th...

Dr Huang provides a thorough analysis and examination of both the Niebuhrian and feminist understandings of sin, highlighting the strengths and limitations of both arguments. Through her research and interaction with women’s testimonies, Huang’s argument bridges these two competing views of women and sin resulting in a more accurate understanding and application of the theology of sin, particularly in reference to women.

Translating Nephesh in the Psalms int...

This interdisciplinary study tackles the controversy of translating nephesh ( נפֶֶשׁ ) by using an intergenerational translation team to deepen our understanding of this term and providing a more valuable translation in Chinese, especially for use in specialist Children’s Bibles. This book provides important lessons for the many translation projects working towards Children’s Bibles but also for how translation of biblical terms can be better reached through this intergenerational process.

Beyond Justice: Death and the Retribu...

Churnai demonstrates that the retribution principle allows humans to know the hidden God as it illuminates the relationship between individual and Creator. Through Job’s experiences and heartfelt outpouring of his soul before both God’s wrathful and gracious face we can know God more fully. Churnai shows how these faces of God are reconciled in the two divine speeches of YHWH, which invite both Job and the reader and move beyond retribution theology to trust in the graciousness of God.

Jesus’s Identification with the Margi...

The first-century Judaic understanding of the identity and nature of the Messiah has been a much-debated topic among biblical scholars and preachers alike. So too has the messianic identity and nature of Jesus himself. Deboch informs these debates with fresh evidence outside traditional references to miracles, and supernatural identifications by demons and God himself. This book brings insightful new conclusions that transform our understanding of the biblical messianic identity revealed in the person of Jesus.

Transforming Missiology: An Alternati...

Dr Lygunda provides a thorough analysis of missiological teaching in theological education institutes in Africa, with special reference to three Christian universities in Democratic Republic of Congo. His detailed examination of current teaching of mission theory and praxis forms the solid foundation for his articulation of a new paradigm of missiological education. In this study Lygunda convincingly presents the case for a transformed approach to raising up seminarians who are equipped to lead indigenous missional churches.

Context and Contextuality: The Missio...

Tsvirinko examines the holism, authenticity and contextuality of mission work done by churches in the Pacific Coast Slavic Baptist Association in America. He defines authentic mission in light of three major Christian groups and uncovers startling insights on how these churches engage in mission back in their homeland and in America. The conclusions are invaluable to diasporic Christian communities evaluating their authenticity in the way they do mission, internationally and locally, creating a path to more fruitful ministry.

Forgiveness and Politics: A Critical ...

Forgiveness and politics are often assumed to be unrelated and un-relatable. This study not only argues that forgiveness and politics can be related, but also that they are intrinsically related. It also critiques standard approaches and proposals for relating forgiveness and politics while offering an alternative proposal for the relationship between forgiveness and politics. In making the case, the study revisits not only the biblical foundations of forgiveness, but also the concepts and practices of politics, justice, and reconciliation.

Heaven and Earth in Luke-Acts

Focusing on several key passages from the biblical canon, Gao analyses them in their Jewish, Greco-Roman and broader literary contexts to enhance our comprehension of the meaning of “heaven" and it’s significance for our worldview. Dr Gao also elucidates how heaven, as well as being part of reality, acts as a concept that points to the arrival of God’s eschatological kingdom on earth. This book enhances efforts to understand “heaven,” which is often viewed as unfathomable by many Christians.
