God, in short, isn't one very impressive thing among many things that might or might not exist; "not just some especially resplendent object among all the objects illuminated by the light of being," as Hart puts it. Rather, God is "the light of being itself", the answer to the question of why there's existence to begin with. In other words, that wisecrack about how atheists merely believe in one less god than theists do, though it makes a funny line in a Tim Minchin song , is just a category error.

Monotheism's God isn't like one of the Greek gods, except that he happens to have no god friends. It's an utterly different kind of concept. Since I can hear atheist eyeballs rolling backwards in their sockets with scorn, it's worth saying again: It's that he's making a case that's usually never addressed by atheists at all. If you think this God-as-the-condition-of-existence argument is rubbish, you need to say why.

And unlike for the superhero version, scientific evidence won't clinch the deal. The question isn't a scientific one, about which things exist. It's a philosophical one, about what existence is and on what it depends. But too often, instead of being grappled with, this argument gets dismissed as irrelevant. Sure, critics argue, it might be intriguing, but only a handful of smartypants intellectual religious people take it seriously.

The vast majority of ordinary folk believe in the other sort of God.

As Hart points out, there are two problems with this dismissal. Such is the existential gloom — most of the action takes place in an old rectory on an urban wasteland surrounded by fog — that even being decent is a struggle. Murdoch seems to be saying that if the world dispenses altogether with God, the void will be taken up by malevolent angels. On a separate note, she also seems to say that if we dispense with God individually, we will be forced to listen only to Tchaikovsky.

There is something elemental in this novel about the life of Jesus that is absent in the Gospels, and I would make this a set text for anyone studying the nature of Jesus, as the fullest expression of the journey from carpenter to cross — from man to God. The last section of the novel, so reviled by fundamentalist Christians, is one of the most mysterious, imaginative, enthralling and moving passages in all literature. Furber is a midwestern Iago — he needs no real reason for evil.

Can it be true that towards the end of this extraordinary short story, for a brief moment, God incarnates himself in a prattling, selfish grandmother? There are few more moving lines in all literature than those spoken at the very end by grandmother; few more moments more devastating when we realise it will make no difference.

The Best New Christian Nonfiction

Several significant books in again attempted to unknot the questions over how Christians best relate to politics and society no small task. Also noteworthy was James K. Reforming Public Theology , a call to return to a robust Augustinian and Kuyperian model in all its glory. And two more noteworthy titles are slated for release in The concentration of so many edifying titles, in such a short publishing season, is nothing less than a remarkable work of the Spirit. Assembling this list each year reminds me of the breadth of Christian content — the collection of writers and the diversity of genres that are serving the church today.

We live in the golden age of publishing, and reading like writing is a way of serving others, as we link helpful books to the specific needs and interests of our friends around us. Jared Wilson has written a shelf of valuable books, but this one is his best yet. Discipleship is for the cut-ups and the screw-ups, the tired and the torn-up, the weary and the wounded.

Such a great sentence worth repeating! Few modern authors pastor my soul through prose better than Wilson. But in his letters, Tolkien tips us off that spiritual truths saturate his works. So how do we best mine out all the spiritual allusions in the intentionally de-religioned world of Middle-earth?

One way is to find the threefold offices of Christ in the mix of characters that point to Christ. The year was rather slow for large academic commentaries, but this volume would have been the most important and significant commentary in just about any year. Crowe does something similar here.

The True Name of God - Secret Code Hidden in Book of Leviticus.

Jesus is the true second Adam in every way. In his life, words, and attitudes, Christ was everything Adam failed to be, and on this basis he becomes our substitutionary atonement. The book echoes with the last words of J. No hope without it. May this also be known as the year that we reclaimed the active obedience of Christ — because without the life-obedience of Christ, there would be no gospel hope for him to offer us. To be a Christian in the first two centuries was to be weird — gloriously bizarre and odd. Christians handled marriage and sex and worship and social action so distinctly from the Roman pagans around them, it was impossible not to notice the differences.

Hurtado has masterfully recreated the stark contrasts in this book.

The one theology book all atheists really should read | News | The Guardian

A rich and wonderful historical study! Following their devotional in the Psalms, the Kellers have produced a new companion devotional on the Proverbs. This book would be a delightful way to invest a year of reflection. We need more brave authors willing to jump into the present racial tensions and offer Christ-centered vision and hope for ethnic unity.

Great old books are important for a reason, but many of the best books are also locked away from modern-day readers by ambiguities and dated debates that make them inaccessible. Helping readers ease into classics is one of the premier gifts that serious scholars offer to reading Christians. In this spirit, Finn and Kimble have edited and delivered a gift to unlock the great books of Jonathan Edwards. Every essay is solid. There is hope for the teenage girl who wonders why her emotions feel out of control and hope for the woman whose hormones stalk her every month.

When we lose heart, when we feel helpless to change our emotions, we must remember the gospel. God, who did not spare his own Son to save us from our sins Romans 8: Every one of us lives with a fallen and sinful sexuality, and every one of us is influenced by the sexual dysfunctions of others. Most books on sexual brokenness focus on one particular struggle, but leave it to David Powlison to discern patterns of similarity that we can all relate to, and to simultaneously address the gospel in two directions.

Other books are written for people who struggle with the impact of sexual betrayal, molestation, and assault. There is the one gospel of Jesus Christ, who came to make saints of all kinds of sinner-sufferers and sufferer-sinners, whatever our particular configuration of defections and distresses.
