From Generation to Generation: The Adaptive Challenge of Mainline Protestant Education in Forming Faith

by Charles R. Foster

Mainline Protestant congregations face a profound adaptive challenge. In the midst of significant social, cultural, and technological change, the denominations they represent generally abandoned a view of education capable of maintaining and renewing their faith traditions through their children and youth. New curriculum resources and innovative pedagogical strategies appropriated from the marketplace of religious education options have not met the challenge. A transformation of consciousness is required in congregations seeking a future through their children. It involves the exercise of an ecclesial imagination to reclaim a view of education rooted in the revitalization of their religious traditions in the past and re-envisioning the congregation as a catechetical culture of faith formation.

The Pursuit of Happiness: Blessing and Fulfillment in Christian Faith

by Sarah Heaner Lancaster

People want to be happy. Nothing could be more obvious, and yet this common and evident goal is not as easy to achieve as it is to desire. The Christian tradition has understood happiness to be gained through relationship with God, and it has much to say about what will make us truly happy and what will not. This book examines happiness from a Christian perspective, using John Wesley as the focus of study because he understood happiness with God to be the very goal of Christian life. He also understood that Christian happiness needed to acknowledge the difficulties of life. This book seeks to learn from the wisdom of the past in order to imagine how Christians today might talk about happiness in a way that is faithful to the tradition and engages the world as well.

The Structure of Biblical Authority (2nd edition)

by Meredith G. Kline

The initial concern with the canonical aspect of Scripture led inevitably to reexamination of the formal character of Scripture as such. "What is the Bible?" became a central question, and it receives here a somewhat distinctive answer, in line with the new direction taken in the formulation of biblical canonicity. Because of the limitations of the author's field of specialization the focus of these studies is on the Old Testament, but some suggestions are ventured for the extension of the main theses into the New Testament.
