              This volume approaches questions of the status and meaning of suffering in Christian life and Christian theology through the lens of a variety of theological disciplines-biblical, historical, practical, political and systematic theology. The volume focuses on a number of question...s: Is love intrinsically linked with suffering? Are suffering and loss on some level fundamentally good? How is or should suffering and diminishment be viewed in the Christian tradition? The contributors bring together essays touching on concrete issues such as depression, cancer, mental health, and refugees, and discuss broad themes like vulnerability, kenosis, and tragedy. They examine classic texts, from Paul's letters, Romans, and Galatians, to Aquinas, Bonaventure, and John of the Cross.

              Karen Kilby explores the doctrine of the Trinity and issues of evil, suffering and sin. She offers a critique of the lack of respect for mystery found in the most popular Trinitarian thinking of our time. Kilby gives an apophatic reading of Aquinas on the Trinity and offers a dis...tinct next step in the sequence on the Trinity - the appeal of social doctrines of the Trinity lies principally in their ecclesial and political relevance. She engages with Miroslav Volf's famous `The Trinity is our social program' essay and addresses the question of what an alternative politics of an apophatic theology of the Trinity might look like. The essays explore the question of theodicy and argue that evil poses a question to Christians and Christian's theology which can neither be answered nor dismissed. Kilby argues that Christians must live with this mystery, this lack of resolution, rather than trying to diminish the gravity of evil, or allowing evil to dictate their conception of God's goodness or power. By offering a critical reading of Hans Urs von Balthasar and Julian of Norwich she explores the question of whether Christianity can avoid giving a positive valuation to suffering, and concludes the two represent two different strands within the Christian tradition in relation to thought on suffering.

              Progressive Creation and the Struggles of Humanity in the Bible
                

              Progressive Creation and the Struggles of Humanity in the Bible (Hardback)

              By Dornyei, Dr Zoltan; Foreword by Kilby, Karen

              Why does the Christian walk often feel like an ongoing struggle and why does God's creation include imperfection, let alone forces that are intent on thwarting God's creative work? In seeking a response to these questions, this book argues that the biblical accounts describe crea...tion in terms of a progressive transformation process whereby the initially incomplete created order will reach perfection only in the fulfillment of new creation. The following discussion then outlines a comprehensive framework for the biblical theology of humanity's struggles, centered on three key themes: corporeal temptation, deficient social structures, and the much-debated notion of spiritual warfare. The book presents an overarching canonical narrative that threads together a series of diverse biblical topics, from Job's temptation to the Atonement. The final part surveys biblical teaching on how human conduct can be aligned with God's creative purpose, and discusses three assignments from Jesus to believers: to celebrate the Eucharist, to pray the Lord's Prayer, and to fulfill the Great Commission. Rarely have I read such a stimulating and profitable book. Zoltan Dornyei sets out a fresh telling of the narrative of Scripture which starts by making a persuasive case for the view that creation is a continuous process, initially 'unfinished, ' and relates this to the on-going threat of chaos and of spiritual warfare. At the end, he explains his approach has been like writing a guidebook to a new path through the Yorkshire Dales. His work is, however, more like walking the path with an expert guide who is constantly pointing out new views, new insights, new connections, and breathtaking views which many would miss en route. Written with eminent clarity, this is theology at its best: broad in its sweep, careful in its exegesis, masterly in its theological perception and, above all, rich in its practical, spiritual insights. --Derek Tidball, Former Principal of London School of Theology an
