In this succinct, inviting volume, Theology – Descent into the Vicious Circles of Death, four Balkan theologians delve into and bounce off the theology of Jurgen Moltmann, whose classic The Crucified God influenced novel theological approaches around the globe, most recently the emerging postwar Christian theology in the Balkans.

With a foreword by Miroslav Volf.

More on and by Jurgen Moltmann here.

Dostoevsky and O’Connor and the Devil

Giving the Devil His Due walks through all of O’Connor’s stories and looks closely at Dostoevsky’s magnum opus The Brothers Karamazov to show that when the devil rules, all hell breaks loose. Instead of this kingdom of violence, O’Connor and Dostoevsky propose a kingdom of love.

New edition of important book on ministry

hres.9781498221160-415x623 square

Dancing in the Dark, Graham Buxton.

As we engage in Christian ministry, we are summoned to participate as grace-filled faith communities in the triune God’s immeasurably loving and healing work in the world, leading those who are in darkness into an awareness of the God who imparts life in all its glorious abundance, that which is so . . . and a journey into the mystery of that which is to come. The liberating ministry of the gospel is both a declaration and an invitation–an invitation to the dance!

Reading with Jews, Christians and Muslims

A Stranger is Calling, Anton Wessels.

Abraham, the father of all believers, plays host to three strangers, one of whom is God, and thus sets an example for others to follow.
Jews, Christians, and Muslims often treat each other as strangers. Their Holy Books are not the cause of their conflicts and enmity but rather show the way to solve them. They tell a common story of the lifelong journey of the human being to the promised city, the promised land, and the promised world where justice and righteousness reign.

Syndicate uses recent publications in theological studies as a point of departure for addressing and engaging open questions in contemporary theology and ethics. It is not a book review journal. It is not a standard peer-review journal. It is not a “theology and culture” journal that seeks to make theology relevant to broad audiences. It is an online forum for scholars to comment on each other’s work and explore big ideas outside of the highly scripted spaces of contemporary academics.  Check out recent issues of Syndicate here.
