The Mystery of Union with God offers the most extensive, systematic analysis to date of how Albert and Thomas interpreted and transformed the Dionysian Moses "who knows God by unknowing." It shows Albert's and Thomas's philosophical and theological motives to place limits on Dionysian apophatism and to reintegrate mediated knowledge into mystical knowing. The author surfaces many similarities in the two Dominicans' mystical doctrines and exegesis of Dionysius. This work prepares the way for a new consideration of Albert the Great as the father of Rhineland Mysticism. The original presentation of Aquinas's theology of the Spirit's seven gifts breaks new ground in theological scholarship. Finally, the entire book lays out a model for the study of mystical theology from a historical, philosophical and doctrinal perspective.

How many times have you heard someone say, “I want to be close to God,” or “I feel far from Jesus?” For many of us, we have been led to believe that our relationship with Jesus is based on proximity—a sliding scale of “near” or “far” based on the faithfulness of our spiritual devotion. But what if being “close” to you isn’t good enough for Jesus? What if he wants to be closer than close? Instead of simply having a “personal relationship” with you, what if Jesus longs to be “perfectly one” with you instead? In this achingly bold and beautiful book, pastor, scholar, friend, and now author, Dave Hickman, invites you into his personal journey from striving to abiding, anxiety to peace, weariness to rest; from having a relationship with Jesus to awakening to the freedom of his union with Christ. Through careful attention to Scripture, personal stories, and everyday examples, join Dave as he guides you into the depths of the mystery of your personal and corporate union with Christ. In doing so, you, too, can awaken to the wonder and freedom that is already yours in Christ.

'The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification' by Walter Marshall, first published in 1692, is one of the classic works of Christian spirituality. It is a deep and rich biblical study of sanctification - how Christians grow in holiness and become more like Jesus. In a day when Christians are very prone to pursue self-help methods to grow in obedience to Christ, Walter Marshall lays out the biblical way of growth: obedience comes as Christians live by grace, in union with Christ, by faith. Growth comes, as Paul says in Galatians 2:20, through Christ living in me.Ó The message of this book is so important for Christians today, it is essential that it be rewritten in contemporary English.

The first three chapters [of this book] give a general discussion of four great matters in the Bible: the economy of God, the dispensing of God, the union of God with His believers, and the corporate expression of God. The subsequent chapters go on to explain the profound truths and the experience of life related to these four great matters according to the book of Ephesians, the Gospel of John, and the Gospel of Matthew. Following this, the book proceeds to offer guidance to all those who have a heart to serve the Lord full time concerning the building up of themselves in the matters of life, truth, character, learning languages, knowing the church, living a healthy life, and managing personal finances as living witnesses of the Lord, so that they may become useful vessels in the Lord's hands.

Accomplished theologian J. Todd Billings recovers the biblical theme of union with Christ for today's church, making a fresh contribution to the theological discussion with important applications for theology and ministry. Drawing on Scripture and the thought of figures such as Augustine, Calvin, Bavinck, and Barth, Billings shows how a theology of union with Christ can change the way believers approach worship, justice, mission, and the Christian life. He illuminates how union with Christ can change the theological conversation about thorny topics such as total depravity and the mystery of God. Billings also provides a critique and alternative to the widely accepted paradigm of incarnational ministry and explores a gospel-centered approach to social justice. Throughout, he offers a unique and lively exploration of what is so amazing about being united to the living Christ.

It’s the defining reality of all existence, the central fact of human history, and the heart of the Christian faith: God became a man and lived among us. More than just part of the Christmas story, the doctrine of the incarnation radically affects our understanding of God, humanity, life, death, and salvation. In The Incarnation of God, theology professors John Clark and Marcus Johnson explore this foundational Christian confession, examining its implications for the church’s knowledge and worship of God. Grounded in Scripture and informed by church history, this book will help Christians rediscover the inestimable significance of the truth that the Son of God became what we are without ceasing to be the eternal God—the greatest mystery of the universe.

The Glory of Christ Unveil'd

The Glory of Christ Unveil'd
Or the Excellency of Christ Vindicated in His Person, Love, Righteousness, &c. Being an Explication of the Mystery which was Kept Secret Since the World Began: Wherein the Doctrine of the Holy Trinity is Manifested in the Glory-Man, Jesus: And that Christ's Bearing the Filth of Our Sin in His Own Sufferings, was a Part of the Atonement He Made to God for the Elect; Set Forth Against the Socinian and Neonomian Triumphs, and Agaisnt Some Other Cowardly Profession. It is Likewise Demonstrated that an Interest in Christ is Built Alone Upon the Free, Absolute and Everlasting Love of the Father, Son and Spirit, Towards a Remnant in Christ Jesus, Against the Arminiant. And Therein is Some Account Given of the Mystery of the Elect and Their Union in Christ Jesus Before the Foundation of the World; Proving that Their Free Grace-Union According to God's Ancient Settlements was Never, as to the Comprehensive and Supreme Relation of the Elect in Jesus Christ, Destroy'd by Their Subordinate Nature-Fall in Adam. To These Things are Added a Vindication of the Excellency of God's Free Grace Against the Whole Arminian Scheme. And Lastly, The Spiritual Operations of the Holy Ghost are Vindicated, as the Immediate Spring, Life and Source of All Practical Religion. Occasion'd by Divers Notorious Errours in the Writings of Mr. John Hunt of Northampton, and Many Other Writers, Preachers and Professours of the Gospel on Most Sides: Who Instead of Increasing on the Foundation at this Day, Have Shamefully Cast Off the First Faith. And that Now when the Water of Euphrates, Or the Power of the Turk Since the Peace of Carlowitz, Hath Been Eminently Dryed Up, So as Not to Overflow the Western Monarchy as Heretofore. And Now Likewise, Altho' for the Elect's Sake, God Has Shortened the Days, Upon the Rising of the Two Witnesses in England, who Rose and Stood Upon Their Feet in this Street of the Great City, Anno 1687, where They Had Been Stain in Their Open Testimony of Experimental Religion, Just Three Years and a Half Preceding. Yea, to Make Way for the Coming of the Glorious Kingdom of Christ, We Have Seen the Seventh Angel in the Ministry of Christ, (presently for Dispatch Since this Last Liberty) Pouring Forth His Vial Into the Air, which Hath Said with a Great Voice Out of the Temple of Heaven from the Throne of the Glory-Man, it is Done: All is Done in Christ Jesus Before Believing. And on this Has Been Further Utter'd, The Kingdoms of this World are Become the Kingdoms of Our Lord, and of His Christ, and He Shall Reign for Ever and Ever. Nevertheless Deserters of the Faith, Even So Far as was Believ'd the Last Age, by Their Unbelieving Voices from the Pulpit, and Angry Thunders Awing the People, Have Drown'd the Report of the 7th Angel. Time Now for More Lightnings to Come Forth After Them, Towards the Advance of a Spiritual Reformation Breath'd After.

Christianity has always been a "creedal" religion in that it has always been theological. It was rooted in the theological tradition of ancient Israel, which was unifi ed by its historical credos and declaratory affi rmations of faith. No pre-theological era has been discovered in the New Testament or in the history of the Christian community. From the beginning Christianity has been theological, involving men in theological refl ection and calling them to declarations of faith. A non-theological Christianity has simply never endured, although such has been attempted, for instance, by individual seers in the sixteenth century and also by collaborators with totalitarian ideologies in the twentieth century. The creeds presented here range from the ancient faith of the Hebrews and the creed-like formulas of the New Testament to the Barmen declaration of 1934 (framed by the Christians in Germany who faced the threat of Nazism) and the Batak Creed of 1951 (in which Indonesian Christians gave authentic expression to their religious belief in the idiom of their own culture. All the creeds are in some sense "offi cial," and every major division of Christendom is represented, including the Younger Churches. The volume ends with the messages of the most important assemblies dealing with the Ecumenical Movement. This single volume, containing all the major theological affi rmations of the Christian community, is a source book for the study of Christian theology. It comprises a record of the Church's interpretation of the Bible in the past and an authoritative guide to its interpretation on the present. Indeed, it is a guide to an understanding of the Christian interpretation of life. "John H. Leith" was Pemberton Professor of Theology at Union Theology Seminary. He was a member of numerous societies including The Synod of the Mid-Atlantic, New Hope Presbytery and the American Society of Church History. He is the author of numerous books including "The Best of Times and the Worst of Times for Religion, Especially Christian Faith, John Calvin's Doctrine of the Christian Life," and "An Introduction to the Reformed Tradition."

Since the time of bloody persecutions right up to the post-modern age, each historical period posed its particular challenge to Christianity. Psychologically, Christians' vitality in overcoming these challenges came primarily from what is perhaps the deepest mystery of faith itself—the believers' union with God. The postmodern positivist questions this mystery, and rejects the possibility of communication with a non-sensorial and therefore "non-existing" God. Agnostics proclaim, "One man's religion, is another's delusion." Therefore, the modern challenge for Christians is to explain how God, despite being invisible, is experientially present in the life of believers. Although the experience of living in a relationship with an invisible God is a profound one for Christians, it seems nonsensical to those who emphasize the primacy of sensory experience. Paul Ungar's extensive scholarly training equips him remarkably well to explore where, when, how, and through which psychological functions communication with the spiritual God factually occur. Ungar's The Mystery of Christian Faith: A Tangible Union with the Invisible God is an apologetic work on the borderline of theology, psychology and philosophy. It is written for Christian intellectuals regardless of their denominational background and rationally demonstrates what François Mauriac's hauntingly poetic expression, "Nothing is more alien than living in a Godless world, and nothing is closer to humans than God."

The challenge of promoting the "new feminism" has barely been addressed since it was first launched by Pope John Paul II in his 1995 encyclical Evangelium vitae. The thirteen contributors in this book, all outstanding international scholars, take up this task, together laying the necessary theoretical foundation for the new feminism. These chapters articulate an integral philosophical and theological understanding of persons that moves beyond patriarchy on the one hand and traditional feminism on the other. Central to the new perspective offered here is the biblical revelation of the human person - man and woman - in Christ, a vision that directs women beyond the "male" standard against which they have too often been measured. Far from constraining women to an "eternal essence," the dynamic view presented here encourages each woman to realize herself in perfect Christian freedom.
