Jesus Christus hatte einen gewaltigen Einfluss auf die Menschheit - auf ihre Geschichte, ihre Entwicklung, ihr Zusammenleben und ihre Zukunft. John Ortberg zeichnet die Spuren eines Lebens nach, das die Welt wie kein anderes verändert hat. Sein Wirken prägte Gesellschaft, Kunst, Wissenschaft, Politik und Bildung - bis heute. Aber auch Begriffe wie Menschenwürde, Mitleid, Vergebung und Hoffnung erhielten durch ihn entscheidende Bedeutung. Meisterhaft gelingt es Ortberg, das Vermächtnis dieses unvergleichlichen Weltbewegers auf den Punkt zu bringen. Übrigens: John Ortberg ist mehrmals wöchentlich mit seiner Predigtreihe im TV zu sehen. Und zwar auf ERF 1. Nähere Termine unter erf.de

Geschlecht war gestern, heute gilt Gender. Aus dem Einsatz für die Gleichberechtigung von Frauen und Männern ist der Kampf um Gleichstellung und Gleichbehandlung aller sexuellen Identitäten und um die Überwindung aller klassischen Geschlechterrollen geworden. Christoph Raedel, Professor für Systematische Theologie und Ethik an der FTH in Gießen, geht den brisanten Fragen nach: Welche Vorstellungen von Gleichheit und Gerechtigkeit, von Toleranz und Akzeptanz prallen in der Diskussion aufeinander? Welches Menschenbild und welche Weltanschauung erweisen sich als leitend? Wo wird die Gender-Agenda in der Praxis wirksam? Wo sind berechtigte Anliegen und Chancen des "Gender Mainstreaming" zu erkennen, wo liegen Grenzen und Gefahren? Ist es wirklich angemessen, von einer "Gender-Ideologie" oder gar von "Genderismus" zu sprechen? In diesem hochaktuellen Buch bietet Christoph Radel sachkundige Orientierung und argumentiert differenziert, um den Leser urteils- und sprachfähig zu machen. Vor allem fordert Raedel Respekt voreinander ein, weil jeder Mensch das Geschöpf Gottes ist – egal, zu welchen Positionen man am Ende über die Fragen sexueller Vielfalt, sexueller Identität oder der Berechtigung von Geschlechterrollen kommt, und wie man über Ehe und Familie denkt.

Ruth Tucker recounts a harrowing story of abuse at the hands of her husband—a well-educated, charming preacher no less—in hope that her story would help other women caught in a cycle of domestic violence and offer a balanced biblical approach to counter such abuse for pastors and counselors. Weaving together her shocking story, stories of other women, and powerful stories of husbands who truly have demonstrated Christ’s love to their wives, with reflection on biblical, theological, historical, and contemporary issues surrounding domestic violence, she makes a compelling case for mutuality in marriage and helps women and men become more aware of potential dangers in a doctrine of male headship.

Conservative evangelical women are least likely to be trained in the areas of teaching and preaching. It's a tragic state of affairs, given the central value that our tradition places on the Scriptures. In this book, Jackie Roese examines the forces, both past and present, that have discouraged women from becoming trained. We'll discover that women are indeed called, gifted, and mandated in Scripture to herald the Word of God. The first half of the book will focus on encouraging women to become as fully equipped as our male counterparts, and to use their uniquely female voice in proclaiming truth to other women in various settings outside pulpit preaching. But encouragement isn't enough. Many women who already teach Bible studies, or who desire to teach, are in no position to pursue formal studies in a seminary. To that end, the second half of She Can Teach is dedicated to developing homiletic skills. Together we will learn how to study a passage, find the main idea, and build and deliver a biblical message. By the end of this book, the reader will be better equipped to proclaim truth, through her uniquely female voice, to her female audience.

Living the Christ-Centered Life in an Either-Or World

It's an Either-Or world. We find ourselves caught between competing factions, secular or religious, conservative or liberal. We are pulled between extremes on one side or the other. But the Christian faith holds together seemingly contradictory ideas: Jesus is both human and divine; God is both three and one. There is a paradoxical power in the both-and. Rich Nathan and Insoo Kim show how Christians can live out the fullness of the gospel through the both-and. They affirm that we believe in both proclamation and demonstration of the gospel, justice and mercy, and unity and diversity as one body with many parts. The answer is not to choose one or the other, but to hold both together for a richer, more holistic experience of Christianity. Then we will live into the realities of the kingdom of God, both now and not yet, on earth as it is in heaven. Both-And Christians are both timeless and timely, hewing to the orthodoxy of traditional belief while always contextualizing our witness in a rapidly changing world. Discover how you can deepen your discipleship with the larger vision of the both-and.
