The Dictionary of Christianity and Science provides, in one volume, entries on over 450 key terms, theories, individuals, movements, and debates at the intersection of Christian faith and contemporary science. In addition, because certain topics such as the age of the Earth and the historicity of Adam and Eve provoke disagreement among Christians, the dictionary includes “Counterpoints”-like essays that advocate for the views most commonly held among evangelicals. Representatives of leading perspectives present their arguments vigorously but respectfully in these advocacy essays, allowing readers to compare options and draw their own conclusions. The dictionary is also fully cross-referenced and entries include references and recommendation for further reading. Edited by Paul Copan, Tremper Longman III, Christopher L. Reese, and Michael G. Strauss, the Dictionary of Christianity and Science features a top-notch lineup of over 140 contributors in the fields of biblical studies, theology, philosophy, history, and various sciences. A unique reference work, it will be useful for scholars, pastors, students, and any Christian wanting to better understand the most relevant issues and ideas at the intersection of Christian faith and science.

The Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies (JBTS) is an academic journal focused on the fields of Bible and Theology from an inter-denominational point of view. The journal is comprised of an editorial board of scholars that represent several academic institutions throughout the world. JBTS is concerned with presenting high-level original scholarship in an approachable way. Academic journals are often written by scholars for other scholars. They are technical in nature, assuming a robust knowledge of the field. There are fewer journals that seek to introduce biblical and theological scholarship that is also accessible to students. JBTS seeks to provide high-level scholarship and research to both scholars and students, which results in original scholarship that is readable and accessible. As an inter-denominational journal JBTS is broadly evangelical. We accept contributions in all theological disciplines from any evangelical perspective. In particular, we encourage articles and book reviews within the fields of Old Testament, New Testament, Biblical Theology, Church History, Systematic Theology, Practical Theology, Philosophical Theology, Philosophy, and Ethics.

The question of origins remains a stumbling block for many. But just as the Psalmist gained insight into God's character through the observation of nature, modern scientific study can deepen and enrich our vision of the Creator and our place in his creation. In this often contentious field Bishop, Funck, Lewis, Moshier, and Walton serve as our able guides. Based on over two decades of teaching origins together in the classroom, the authors present a textbook exploring mainstream scientific theories of origins in astronomy, cosmology, chemistry, geology, biology, physical anthropology, and genetics. While many authors engage origins from a Christian perspective, this is the first work offering a full-fledged discussion of the scientific narrative of origins from the Big Bang through humankind, from biblical and theological perspectives accessible to a lay audience. Topics include Principles of biblical interpretationClose readings of relevant Genesis textsA comprehensive Trinitarian doctrine of creationCosmic originsThe geologic history of EarthThe origin of life on EarthThe origin of species and diversity of lifeHuman originsNew creation and creation careScience educationRather than the familiar scenario where science and faith compete, this book seeks to diffuse tensions by taking the inspiration and authority of the Bible seriously while respecting and honoring God's revelation through creation. Understanding Scientific Theories of Origins gives the reader a detailed picture of the sciences of origins along with how they fit into the story of God's creative and redemptive action.

Science is not a danger to the faith of Christian youth. In fact, Sara Sybesma Tolsma, an award-winning scientist, and Jason Lief, a leading practical theologian, argue that youth ministry needs science to help young people explore their relationship to God and engage their world faithfully. Jesus Loves You and Evolution Is True invites the church and its leaders to open their minds and hearts to what science can tell us about our human lives and our connections to, and role in, our natural world. But it does not stop there: evolutionary science is theological, argues Lief and Tolsma, and so it must have a central place in the day-to-day work of youth ministry. If the church wants to help youth develop robust spiritual lives and prepare them for the challenges that life will bring them, pastors, faith leaders, and youth workers must not only engage science but embrace its lessons for the life and practice of Christian faith today.

For many people, skeptics and believers alike, the Old Testament is rife with controversial passages and events that make both belief and sharing our beliefs with others difficult. Often our solutions have tended toward the extremes--ignore problem passages and pretend they don't matter or obsess over them and treat them as though they are the only thing that matters. Now with clarity of purpose and fidelity to the message and spirit of Scripture as a whole, Tremper Longman confronts pressing questions of concern to modern audiences, particularly young people in the church: - the creation/evolution debate - God-ordained violence - the historicity of people, places, and events - human sexuality Pastors, leaders in the church, and thoughtful and troubled Christians in the pews will find here a well-reasoned and faithful approach to dealing with the Old Testament passages so many find challenging or disconcerting.

Die Debatten um die Reproduktionsmedizin und die Erblichkeit der Intelligenz werfen Fragen auf nach der Kontinuität eugenischer Praktiken, d. h. der Optimierung menschlicher Eigenschaften durch die Steuerung des Fortpflanzungsverhaltens. Dieses Programm ist eng verknüpft mit dem »Dritten Reich«, Zwangssterilisationen und der Vernichtung »unwerten Lebens«. Doch schon vor Beginn der Naziherrschaft warnten Autoren wie Aldous Huxley und Gilbert Keith Chesterton hellsichtig vor den Gefahren der Eugenik. Chestertons Essay "Eugenik und andere Übel" zeigt grundlegende Probleme eugenischen Denkens auf und liegt nun erstmals auf deutsch vor. Thomas Lemke erläutert den historischen Kontext und zeigt, daß Chestertons Mahnungen nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren haben.

Eine spektakuläre Reise in das Leben nach dem Tod Was geschieht, wenn wir sterben? Gibt es ein Leben nach dem Tod? Fragen, die jeden Menschen berühren und die in diesem Buch auf revolutionäre Weise neu beantwortet werden. Mit 54 Jahren erkrankt der renommierte Neurochirurg und Harvard-Dozent Eben Alexander an einer extrem seltenen Form der Hirnhautentzündung. Er fällt ins Koma. Die Ärzte stellen fest, dass sein Gehirn irreparabel geschädigt ist, und prognostizieren sein baldiges Ende. Doch Eben Alexander kehrt ins Leben zurück – und gesundet innerhalb kurzer Zeit. Minutiös berichtet der Gehirnforscher, was er während des Komas durchlebte: Begleitet von einem Engelwesen taucht er ein in eine Welt ohne Zeit und Raum, in der sich ihm die göttliche Quelle allen Seins offenbart. Hier erfährt er: Wir alle sind Teil eines universalen, unsterblichen Bewusstseins.

Die vorliegende Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit dem Figurismus in China, der zu den interessantesten Kapiteln der chinesischen Missionsgeschichte gehort. Diese Studie von Claudia von Collani ist die bisher ausfuhrlichste Wurdigung des Figurismus als Theorie in der Chinamission. Neben der Biographie des Initiators des Figurismus, P. Joachim Bouvet S.J. (1656-1730), werden die wichtigsten Aussagen und Ziele des chinesischen Figurismus zusammengestellt. Die Verfasserin weist nach, dass viele Vorwurfe theologischer wie sinologischer Art von Zeitgenossen, aber auch von spateren Autoren (z.B. Virgile Pinot und Rene Etiemble) zu Unrecht vorgebracht wurden. Claudia von Collani stellt fest, dass die Figuristen mit ihrer Theorie in vieler Hinsicht ihrer Zeit weit voraus waren und sie deshalb zwangslaufig in einen fur die damalige Zeit unlosbaren Konflikt mit der herrschenden Meinung gerieten.
