  • Die Brunnen unserer Väterby Peter Pitzele; Frank Lorenz

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2012; US$ 20.99

    Hauptbeschreibung Biblische Texte müssen ausgelegt werden - anders können sie nicht erfasst werden. Doch gibt es verschiedene Wege und sehr unterschiedliche Zugänge zu den Texten. Immer aber werden diese Wege selbst Teil der Auslegung. Manchmal werden uns die Augen geöffnet für kulturhistorische Enzyklopädien, denen diese Heiligen Texte zugehören.... more...

  • Senecaby Gregor Maurach

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2014; US$ 91.58

    Lucius Annaeus Seneca suchte in der Beschäftigung mit der griechischen Philosophie ein Gegengewicht zum hektischen Geschäft der Politik. Doch der römische Politiker, Dichter und Philosoph wollte nicht nur die Gedankenwelt der griechischen Philosophen an die Römer weiterreichen, sondern ihnen auch ein Mittel zur Selbstprüfung und Besinnung an die Hand... more...

  • Das wunderbare Licht, in dem wir lebenby Elmar Mitterstieler

    Echter Verlag 2012; US$ 10.40

    Jede und jeder Getaufte ist durch die Gemeinschaft mit Christus Priester und König und Prophet. Doch wo und wie begegnet uns das, erfahren und erleben wir es? Es sind Worte, die kaum einen Widerhall finden in unserer christlich-kirchlichen Lebenswirklichkeit. Das Zweite Vatikanum hat diese Zusage der unveräußerlichen Gleichheit und Würde und des Priestertums... more...

  • User Friendly Evaluationby C. Jeff Woods

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1995; US$ 14.99

    Each congregation must evaluate itself in light of its own mix of gifts, backgrounds, talents, and opportunities. Presenting the best of evaluation theory past and present, Woods shows clergy and lay leaders how to engage in mutual evaluation-not judgment-of ministry, mission, and community as a shared responsibility. The goal is building up the congregation.... more...

  • The Wisdom of the Seasonsby Charles M. Olsen

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2009; US$ 19.99

    The church year is often seen as a framework for church programs, but well-known Alban author Charles Olsen shows readers how it can be a prism through which congregations more deeply understand their own stories. By weaving together our narratives and those of Christian tradition, a congregation can clarify its identity, grow in wisdom, and discover... more...

  • A House of Prayer for All Peoplesby Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2002; US$ 17.99

    Contrary to the oft-repeated truism, there are churches in America where Sunday is not the "most segregated day of the week," as Sheryl Kujawa-Holbrook convincingly demonstrates in her compelling exploration of congregations tackling racial justice issues. Yet the truism continues to haunt many congregations, and Kujawa-Holbrook reveals, through story... more...

  • Financial Meltdown in the Mainline?by Loren B. Mead

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1998; US$ 13.99

    Intentionally provocative, Alban founder and former president Loren Mead's dynamic work sets out dramatic and compelling challenges for today's churches. Mead chose the word "meltdown"-a strong term, indeed-very carefully and consciously. His clarion call urges congregations to direct attention to their dwindling financial resources and their unreliable... more...

  • From Nomads to Pilgrimsby Diana Butler Bass; J. Stewart-Sicking

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2005; US$ 19.99

    In The Practicing Congregation (Alban, 2004), Diana Butler Bass explored the phenomenon of "intentional congregations," an emerging style of congregational vitality in which churches creatively and intentionally re-appropriate traditional Christian practices such as hospitality, discernment, contemplative prayer, and testimony. Against the steady flow... more...

  • Missionary Principlesby Roland Allen

    The Lutterworth Press 2012; US$ 12.76

    First published in 1913, Missionary Principles is a classic textbook by genre, but in its controversial evaluation of the Church's missionary theories, it is by no means wholly traditional. At the centre of this discursive study, Allen asserts the distinction which needs to be made in missionary aims between the extension of the Church and the... more...

  • I Leap Over the Wallby Monica Baldwin

    Robert Hale 2015; US$ 5.82

    At the age of twenty-one, Monica Baldwin - the niece of Stanley Baldwin - entered one of the oldest and most strictly enclosed contemplative orders of the Roman Catholic Church. At the age of forty-eight, and after struggling with her vocation for many years, she obtained a special rescript from Rome and left the convent. But the world Monica had... more...
