Download or read book Modern Church PDF or another Format written by Randy Arendell and published by Xulon Press. This book was released on 2008-02 with total page 220 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With an innumerable variety of churches to consider, how does one evaluate which is biblically accurate? God presents truth in His Word, yet that Word is interpreted in countless ways and debated endlessly by the masses. Even educated church leaders, often with impressive academic distinctions, cannot agree on doctrine. How can one person with a lifetime of studying Greek disagree doctrinally, on the same subject, with another who has accomplished the same? Yet it is common, and denominations are the result. Since God is not divided on truth, could He not have presented His Word in a less divisive way? Modern Church: Where Tradition Trumps Truth addresses this mass doctrinal division and shows the fundamental reason for its existence. And in seeing the problem exposed, the reader who accepts the premise will begin building a firm doctrinal foundation needed for evaluating the biblical accuracy of any church, denomination, or idea.
Download or read book Building the Modern Church PDF or another Format written by Robert Proctor and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-05-23 with total page 416 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fifty years after the Second Vatican Council, architectural historian Robert Proctor examines the transformations in British Roman Catholic church architecture that took place in the two decades surrounding this crucial event. Inspired by new thinking in theology and changing practices of worship, and by a growing acceptance of modern art and architecture, architects designed radical new forms of church building in a campaign of new buildings for new urban contexts. A focussed study of mid-twentieth century church architecture, Building the Modern Church considers how architects and clergy constructed the image and reality of the Church as an institution through its buildings. The author examines changing conceptions of tradition and modernity, and the development of a modern church architecture that drew from the ideas of the liturgical movement. The role of Catholic clergy as patrons of modern architecture and art and the changing attitudes of the Church and its architects to modernity are examined, explaining how different strands of post-war architecture were adopted in the field of ecclesiastical buildings. The church building’s social role in defining communities through rituals and symbols is also considered, together with the relationships between churches and modernist urban planning in new towns and suburbs. Case studies analysed in detail include significant buildings and architects that have remained little known until now. Based on meticulous historical research in primary sources, theoretically informed, fully referenced, and thoroughly illustrated, this book will be of interest to anyone concerned with the church architecture, art and theology of this period.

Download or read book The Church in the Modern Age PDF or another Format written by Jeremy Morris and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2007-03-28 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Given the diversity and complexity of developments in the twentieth century, a history of the Christian Church in the modern period is in some ways the most challenging volume of all to write. But Jeremy Morris succeeds in presenting a coherent account of the Church. He emphasises the changing relationship of Western churches to the many forms of Christianity in other parts of the world, while also departing from the Eurocentric worldview of previous histories. His volume offers three major perspectives. The first is political, in which the history of the modern Church is assessed through a prism of international conflicts and international relations. The second perspective is regional, in which coverage is given not only to Europe and the Americas, but to Christianity in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific Rim and Australasia. The author's third major perspective is institutional, in which he discusses particular Christian traditions and their relationships with each other, with other faiths and with wider cultures. An epilogue evaluates the future and prospects for Christianity in the new millennium.
Download or read book Reformation Riches for the Contemporary Church PDF or another Format written by David R. Bruins and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2016-05-02 with total page 174 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Whether it is described as recovering treasures of gold, removing the clouds to reveal the clearest and bluest of skies, replacing fast food with delectable and healthy cuisine, or coming out of the valley to behold the most amazing Alpine splendor, rediscovering the glorious biblical truths which were recovered during the Reformation is extraordinarily liberating and invigorating." The biblical teachings of the Protestant Reformation five hundred years ago freed Christians from many of the same forms of bondage that, ironically, have now reappeared in much of contemporary evangelical Christianity. Many evangelicals now find themselves trapped on performance-based treadmills, enslaved by neurotic introspection, and often just burning out and walking away from the church. Whether it's being fixated on "my performance" (legalism) or "my inner experience" (mysticism) or some other exhausting entanglement, there is, thankfully, a way out. Protestant evangelical churches need to rediscover the liberating treasures of biblical Christianity that were recovered in the Protestant Reformation. This book encourages burned-out evangelicals to take another look--from a Reformation perspective--and begin basking in the good news and all of its vast riches. Through a series of thought-provoking essays, this book also introduces other skeptics to an undiluted and robust Christianity.

Download or read book Trauma and Survival in the Contemporary Church PDF or another Format written by Jonathan S. Lofft and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2021-03-24 with total page 165 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Drawing on a wide diversity of sources, this volume constitutes an additional layer to the phenomenon of trauma by exemplifying its experience within the context of the church, specifically the worldwide Anglican Communion, a family of churches rooted in the English appropriation of the Reformation. As shown here, a wide variety of analytic techniques can be deployed to examine trauma in the context of the church. At an uncertain moment characterized by institutional breakup and decline in several Anglican churches, this volume addresses an urgent need in the literature of church history as constituencies both within the church and without come to terms with ongoing and wide-ranging experiences of trauma. The variety of traumas and the responses, official and otherwise, documented in this collection reflect the wide-ranging testimony of the contributors. Shedding light for the first time on significant traumatic episodes, these narratives examine a difficult and seemingly inexhaustible topic.
