    Mel Gibson's Post Modern Stations of the Cross
    Critical opinion with respect to the artistic merits of the film has been sharply divided. Even more sharply divided has been the opinion of believers with respect to the question of its fidelity to the actual passion of Jesus. This book attempts to respond to the controversy generated by the film and with an eye to developments in the contemporary world, to the film's portrayal of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
    It raises all kinds of questions about the nature of contemporary (post-modern) culture and points to the distorting influence of many of the characteristics of this culture on the presentation by Mel Gibson of the story of the passion of Christ. Overall it finds the film severly lacking as a presentation of Christian Faith.

    In this inviting, accessible and exhilarating volume, Alister McGrath explores how the great tradition of Christian theological reflection can enrich our faith and deepen our engagement with the concerns and debates of the world around us.

    The first part of the book deals with the purpose, place and relevance of Christian theology. It provides a helpful introduction to:
    - the role of theology in transforming the way we see things;
    - how we might handle theological ambiguity;
    - the difference the Christian faith makes to our treatment of the natural world;
    - the link between theology and apologetics

    In short, Mere Theology addresses matters of real importance for Christian life and thought. It will prove both encouraging and stimulating to all those concerned with developing a 'discipleship of the mind'.

    The Fight Between Faith and Reason

    At the height of the Middle Ages, in a cathedral in France, two of the most recognized men in the world are about to face each other in a contest of wills. On one side is Bervard of Clairvaux, a mystic and counselor of popes who will be called "saint" even before his death. On the other is Peter Abelard, the era's most brilliant "scholar," a medieval rock star among students at the university in Paris. Berbard has accused Peter of heresy. Their emotional clash will change the course of history.
    Sweeney reveals the saint and scholar as two "types," or opposing ways of approaching the Christian faith. Since that summer evening in Sens, France, in 1140, these types have pitted against each other as if one's reception of revelation and tradition, and one's ways of thinking about matters of faith, are still affected by the personalities of Bernard and Peter.

    Seeing and Understanding the Truth about God

    We live in a visual culture. Today, people increasingly rely upon visuals to help them understand new and difficult concepts. The rise and stunning popularity of the Internet infographic has given us a new way in which to convey data, concepts and ideas.

    But the visual portrayal of truth in not a novel idea. Indeed, God himself used visuals to teach truth to his people. The tabernacle of the Old Testament was a visual representation of man's distance from God and God's condescension to his people. Each part of the tabernacle was meant to display something of man's treason against God and God's kind response. Likewise, the sacraments of the New Testament are visual representations of man's sin and God's response. Even the cross was both reality and a visual demonstration.

    As teachers and lovers of sound theology, Challies and Byers have a deep desire to convey the concepts and principles of systematic theology in a fresh, beautiful and informative way. In this book, they have made the deepest truths of the Bible accessible in a way that can be seen and understood by a visual generation.

    Are Jesus' words reflected in the pages of the New Testament?

    Many find it impossible to believe Jesus' words were recorded accurately because he did not write the New Testament himself and there were no mechancial or electronic methods of recording his teachings.  Furthermore, surely the hand-copying over the centureies must have distorted the original manuscipts.  This book presents evidence showing that the New Testament is an accurate portrayal of the life and teachings of Jesus.

    In contrast to most studies of New Testament ethics, which treat the New Testament in general and Paul in particular, this book focuses on the person of Jesus himself. Richard Burridge maintains that imitating Jesus means following both his words - which are very demanding ethical teachings - and his deeds and example of being inclusive and accepting of everyone.

    A spectator's guide to Jesus - an introduction to the man from Nazareth is true to its title. It is neither a sceptical tirade nor an evangelistic tract. It is rather a popular-level historical introduction to the life and teaching of Jesus written for the average 'spectator' rather than the academic or religious believer.

    Sheer Grace shows not just the 'link between' but the indissolubility of the union of theology, liturgy and spirituality. It does so by grounding it in a radical tradition of liturgy as transformation, which has its roots in the scriptures and the lived liturgical experiences of our biblical and ecclesial ancestors. At the same time the book looks to the present experience of Christians who feel a deep and largely unmet need for that same kind of transforming experience that liturgy can be. The book also looks to the future with hope as a gift of 'sheer grace', as something only God can and does give, and not as something we can manufacture by our own efforts at renewal or restoration.
