Ecce Homo; A Survey of the Life and Work of Jesus Christ
by John Robert Seeley
by Steve Sjogren
"If you'd asked me who God is on December 9, the year of my accident, I would have been able to give you a fairly cohesive but theoretical answer. A day later all of that changed."A simple surgery went horribly wrong. Steve Sjogren died on the operating table. He encountered a heavenly world where he felt infinite peace. And then he had to come back-back to a physical reality filled with pain and disability and an endless line of tests. The drama of dying suddenly paled in comparison to the trau...

The Cheese and the Worms
by Carlo Ginzburg
The Cheese and the Worms is a study of the popular culture in the sixteenth century as seen through the eyes of one man, a miller brought to trial during the Inquisition.

The 'Spiritual Death' of Jesus (Global Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies, #1)
by William Atkinson
Winner of the Award of Excellence of the Foundation for Pentecostal Scholarship 2010.

It incorporates three elements: in this death, Jesus was separated from God; partook of a satanic nature; and was Satan's prey. Th...
A Non-Philosophical Theory of Nature (Radical Theologies) (Radical Theologies and Philosophies)
by A. Smith
In A Non-Philosophical Theory of Nature Anthony Paul Smith asserts that the old theological and philosophical ideas about the unnatural are no longer tenable.

Smith argues that the very idea of nature must be rethought as ecological, and towards that purpose uses...

Grace is the defining feature of the Christian faith. Once we understand how undeserving we are and how much favor we've been giv...
Idealism and Christian Philosophy
When it comes to contemporary philosophical problems, metaphysical idealism—or Berkeleyan immaterialism—is not taken seriously by most philosophers, not to mention the typical Christian layperson. This state of affairs deserves some attempt at rectification, since Idealism has considerable explanatory power as a metaphysical thesis and provides numerous practical and theoretical benefits. Such thinkers as George Berkeley and Jonathan Edwards believed that Idealism is especially amenable to a...
