In a culture increasingly secular in its pursuits and indifferent to the voice of the church, how may we ignite the fire for ministry that will bring the gospel to the world? How can weary pastors be sustained amidst a climate of doubt and resistance? For more than half a century, three remarkable brothers have offered a vision that has inspired thousands in churches and seminaries. Today, their message remains fresh and relevant as we enter a new millennium. And for one reason: The Brothers Torrance share a passion for Christ--the Christ of the Scriptures, the Christ of the historic Nicene faith. These essays distill the essence of their thought, and shine with the clarity of their shared vision. A Passion for Christ is a light of encouragement for ministers and lay people elsewhere.

A Homily on the Passion of Christ Attributed to Elishe

A Homily on the Passion of Christ Attributed to Elishe

Author: Saint Eghishē (Vardapet)

Publisher: Peeters Publishers

This book offers the first translation of the 'Homily on the Passion of Christ' attributed to the Armenian historian Elishe. The 'Homily' rephrases the biblical narrative from the Last Supper to the Ascension with rhetorical expansions; a final section describes the subsequent Preaching of the Apostles. Elishe is the author of one of the great classics of early Armenian literature, the 'History of Vardan and the Armenian War', and to him are also ascribed various other works, including a 'Commentary on Genesis' and numerous Homilies. The notes to the English rendering indicate parallels with other Armenian texts, both original Armenian works and early translations into Armenian; the introduction places the theology of the 'Homily' in its Armenian context.

In this challenging dialogue of the book, three of today's most respected Christian thinkers explore the role of theology, the task of Christian learning, and the meaning of the self in our contemporary Western society. Jürgen Moltmann builds a case for the "public" nature of Christian theology and explores how expressions of faith from both the church and the academy relate to significant aspects of modernity. Responses by Nicholas Wolterstorff, Ellen T. Charry provide a provacative engagement with Moltmann's views.

These books show how several readers can proclaim the Passion well. Rather than simply dividing the Passion into the parts, this book allows the evangelist's understanding of the Passion to be heard and pondered. You'll also find proclamation tips and suggestions for musical refrains, acclamations and hymns. The cover is suitable for use in the liturgy, and the type and the use of sense lines allow for ease of proclamation. The text of the English version is that of the revised U.S. lectionary. The text of the Spanish version corresponds to the Mexican lectionary.

The lover of souls, our most loving Redeemer, declared that he had no other motive in coming down upon earth to become man than to enkindle in the hearts of men the fire of his holy love: I am come to cast fire on earth; and what will I but that it be kindled? And, oh, what beautiful flames of love has he not enkindled in so many souls, especially by the pains that he chose to suffer in his death, in order to prove to us the immeasurable love which he still bears to us!
