Modern theologians are focused on the doctrine of divine impassibility, exploring the significance of God’s emotional experience and most especially the question of divine suffering. Professor Rob Lister speaks into the issue, outlining the history of the doctrine in the views of influential figures such as Augustine, Aquinas, and Luther, while carefully examining modernity’s growing rejection of impassibility and the subsequent evangelical response. With an eye toward holistic synthesis, this book proposes a theological model based upon fresh insights into the historical, biblical, and theological dimensions of this important doctrine.

2015 Readers' Choice Award Winner "For God so loved the world . . ." We believe these words, but what do they really mean? Does God choose to love, or does God love necessarily? Is God's love emotional? Does the love of God include desire or enjoyment? Is God's love conditional? Can God receive love from human beings? Attempts to answer these questions have produced sharply divided pictures of God's relationship to the world. One widely held position is that of classical theism, which understands God as necessary, self-sufficient, perfect, simple, timeless, immutable and impassible. In this view, God is entirely unaffected by the world and his love is thus unconditional, unilateral and arbitrary. In the twentieth century, process theologians replaced classical theism with an understanding of God as bound up essentially with the world and dependent on it. In this view God necessarily feels all feelings and loves all others, because they are included within himself. In The Love of God, John Peckham offers a comprehensive canonical interpretation of divine love in dialogue with, and at times in contrast to, both classical and process theism. God's love, he argues, is freely willed, evaluative, emotional and reciprocal, given before but not without conditions. According to Peckham's reading of Scripture, the God who loves the world is both perfect and passible, both self-sufficient and desirous of reciprocal relationships with each person, so that "whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life."

What are the roles of canon and community in the understanding and articulation of Christian doctrine? Should the church be the doctrinal arbiter in the twenty-first century? In Canonical Theology John Peckham tackles this complex, ongoing discussion by shedding light on issues surrounding the biblical canon and the role of the community for theology and practice. Peckham examines the nature of the biblical canon, the proper relationship of Scripture and tradition, and the interpretation and application of Scripture for theology. He lays out a compelling canonical approach to systematic theology — including an explanation of his method, a step-by-step account of how to practice it, and an example of what theology derived from this canonical approach looks like.

In the past, scholars and others have asked whether Mormons are Christian. This work reverses the question by asking, "are Christians Mormon?" By identifying Mormon doctrines formerly considered heretical and documenting how these doctrines have gained increasing acceptance within mainstream Christian theologies, the work presents some surprising insights. In chapters focusing on subjects such as deification, the divine feminine, and the reopening of the scriptural canon, among others, the book sets out Joseph Smith's teachings on these ideas, summarizes the criticisms of those positions, and examines trends in contemporary Christian theology that significantly converge in Joseph's direction. Exploring the convergence of contemporary Christian theology with Mormon doctrines, this book will appeal to a broad range of students and readers exploring Christian theology and the Latter-day Saint tradition.

Um die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts treffen sich in Sydney die Teilnehmer einer Expedition, die im Auftrag einiger wohlhabender Bürger der Kolonie das unbekannte Innere des australischen Kontinents erforschen soll. Ihr Leiter ist Johann Ulrich Voß, ein deutscher Wissenschaftler. In der betriebsamen Atmosphäre der aufblühenden Hauptstadt von Neu-Südwales mit ihren Kaufleuten und Offizieren, den verwöhnten und schönen Frauen einer reichen, selbstzufriedenen Gesellschaft lernt der spröde, aber von unbändigem Willen besessene Voß Laura Trevelyan, eine junge Waise, kennen. Obwohl es nur zu einer flüchtigen Begegnung kommt und Voß bald darauf mit seiner Expedition die Stadt verläßt, soll eine seltsam tiefe Leidenschaft ihrer beider Schicksal eng verketten.Die Expedition bringt unvorstellbare Anstrengungen und Entbehrungen. Die physischen Belastungen, denen die Männer in einer mächtigen, dem Menschen feindlichen Natur unterworfen sind, die Zerwürfnisse unter ihnen, die Überfälle der Ureinwohner und schließlich der tragische Ausgang des Unternehmens sind die äußeren Geschehnisse, die Patrick White in einer ironisch-realistischen, an kühnen Bildern und eigenwilligen Metaphern reichen Sprache schildert.Gleichsam auf einer zweiten Bühne spielen sich die Vorgänge in Sydney ab, wo Laura die wahre Wirklichkeit ihres Lebens in jenen Visionen erlebt, in denen sie Voß auf seinem Schicksalsweg begleitet und über Raum und Zeit hinweg an seinem vermessenen Streben, an seiner Niederlage und inneren Wandlung leidenschaftlichen Anteil nimmt. So wird in den farbigen Kulissen des kolonialen Lebens eine Welt hintergründiger Beziehungen und magischer Verstrickungen sichtbar, in der sich die zwiespältige Persönlichkeit des deutschen Forschers Voß zu legendärer Größe entfaltet.
