The Gifts They Bring: How Children in the Gospels Can Shape Inclusive Ministry
ISBN-10: 066426834X
ISBN-13: 9780664268343
Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press
Price: AU$39.95
Description: Children were central to Jesus' ministry, and they can and should be central to the ministry of the church of every age.

The Gifts They Bring challenges readers to reconsider ministry with children today, moving away from a transactional model of imparting wisdom to children to a dialogical model of learning and serving together with children. Through a rereading of familiar Gospel accounts, Amy Lindeman Allen celebrates children as a gift to the church of all ages and offers insight on the many gifts children themselves bring to ministry today.

Publisher: Baker
Price: AU$39.95

Women of the Bible: From Text to Image
ISBN-10: 0567703630
ISBN-13: 9780567703637
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Price: AU$59.99
Description: The Hebrew Bible and art reside at the core of this book, which analyzes the iconographic representation of several women of the Bible. The contributors consider the ways the biblical texts had been read and understood throughout time and the means by which they were represented.

Drawing upon disciplines such as theology, philology or history of art, the essays provide a cross-sectional, plural and rich approach. Through its focus upon iconographic representation, numerous visual cultures of the last millennium are explored, and special emphasis is placed upon several biblical women such as Bathsheba, Moses' mother, the Pharaoh's Daughter, Ruth, Naomi and Deborah, and their lasting influence upon Western art and culture.

This book pursues an understanding of the history of the transmission and reception of the Bible in general, and of the women of the Old Testament in particular.

Paul, The Apostle of Obedience: Reading Obedience in Romans
Author/Artist: JASON A MYERS
ISBN-10: 0567705870
ISBN-13: 9780567705877
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Price: AU$59.99
Description: Jason A. Myers reconsiders the meaning and context of the phrase "the obedience of faith" in Rom 1:5. In contrast to previous studies that have nearly exclusively focused on the obedience language in light of the Hebrew Bible and Second Temple literature, Myers instead investigates how this language functioned within the Greco-Roman world, particularly in the discourse of the Roman Empire.

By studying both the Greco-Roman contexts and the use of obedience language during the Empire, Myers sheds fresh light on the meaning of "the obedience of faith," and concludes that such examination helps contemporary readers understand how Gentiles in Paul's audience would have heard and received the terms and images relating to obedience.

In addition, he argues that Paul's use of obedience language, both at the beginning and end of Romans (1:5; 15:18), serves as rhetorical bookends, and signals a theme that is central to Paul's purpose in Romans and integral to his calling as an apostle to the Gentiles.

No Irrelevant Jesus: On Jesus and the Church Today
ISBN-10: 0814684661
ISBN-13: 9780814684665
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$59.95
Description: Is Jesus relevant for today? If you think that Jesus might have something to say to today's world, which Jesus comes to mind? Is he "gentle Jesus, meek and mild," offering individual salvation but with no message for a suffering world? Is he to be remembered as a Zealot fighting for a hopeless cause or as an outstanding rabbi? Was he a prophet in the long series of Israel's prophets or a religious founder like Muhammad or Gautama?

Or was Jesus unique, a man utterly consumed by zeal for the reign of God, by the "fierce urgency of now," the leader of a movement dedicated to God's cause but committed to nonviolence and living for others? If we seek him, can we find him in the churches?

In No Irrelevant Jesus, Gerhard Lohfink, author of the acclaimed Jesus of Nazareth, explores these questions and offers a resounding yes to the relevance of Jesus today.
