Corruption Mocking at Justice: A Theo...

The increased awareness globally of corruption and the threat it poses has led many in the secular and Christian world to seek solutions. Recognizing the crisis caused by corruption in Tanzania, his own country, Dr Alfred Sebahene seeks to understand this social epidemic through the application of theological ethics. As a result the study identifies theological-ethical guidelines that inform and add substance to the church’s duty in the public sphere, particularly in the fight against corruption and injustice.

This Is True Grace: The Shaping of So...

Sun investigates the coherence between the social behavioural instructions and the theological teachings found in 1 Peter. Engaging with the Balch-Elliott debate, she argues that the core question should not be whether Christians should separate from, or accommodate to, wider society, but whether their behaviour is consistent with their ultimate allegiance to God. Sun convincingly demonstrates that the social distinctiveness of Christian communities was encouraged as a form of cultural and spiritual opposition to wider societal norms.

Competencies for Leading in Diversity...

The patriarchal approach to leadership in the African context is indeed an enigma, judging from the unpredictable outcomes and the quest for effective leadership. The Lord Jesus calls his followers to servant leadership. The secular world has also established the efficacy of the servant leadership approach for cutting-edge leadership. This book looks at the nature of evangelical associations in their diversity and what it takes for leaders to build unity and harmony for effectiveness, especially in the African context.

Mission through Diaspora: The Case of...

Surveying 652 US Chinese churches about their mission activities, along with interviews of a sub-set of respondents, Dr Wu provides analysis and explanation of mission activities using diaspora theories. The trend for Chinese diaspora church mission to take a “Chinese first” approach capitalizes on shared language, culture and transnational networks to advance the gospel. In this era of globalization, diaspora mission has never been so prescient.

Rethinking Missio Dei among Evangelic...

Heralds and Community: An Enquiry int...

This book is part of an ongoing discussion in the scholarly community about Paul’s understanding of the relationship between his own mission and the church’s mission. While this study endorses some previous scholars who exegetically argue for Paul’s thorough silence about the church’s proactive evangelism in his letters, it argues that the explanations for such a silence cannot be adequately made by exegetical conclusions on some related texts alone.

From Land to Lands, from Eden to the ...

The land is an important theme in the Bible. It is a theme through which the whole biblical history found in the Old and New Testaments can be studied and analyzed. Looking at the land in the Bible from its beginnings in the garden of Eden this publication approaches the theme from three distinct perspectives – holiness, the covenant, and the kingdom.

Bible Translation in Suriname: An Ove...

The Republic of Suriname, located in northern South America, has a long and rich history of Bible translation, going back to the middle of the eighteenth century. Missionaries learned the local languages and translated Scriptures into them. This book describes the difficult and sometimes complicated process of Bible translation in Suriname. It furnishes a brief biography of translators, both national and foreign, coming from different denominational backgrounds.

Paul’s Viewpoint on God, Israel, and ...

Over the years Romans 9–11 has been investigated from a variety of approaches, with one of the most prominent being an intertextual reading. However, most discussions of intertextual studies on this section of Romans fail to adequately address Paul’s discourse patterns and that of his Jewish contemporaries with regard to God, Israel, and the Gentiles.

Responsibility, Chastisement and Rest...

Many Old Testament scholars have focused their studies of justice on the eighth-century BC prophets Isaiah, Amos and Micah, giving little or no attention to Hosea. Neglect of Hosea in relation to justice arises from the common notion that he was a prophet of love, and although some studies concede that parts of the book deal with justice, it is often overlooked or given secondary importance to other concerns and themes.
