Tumaini Kwa Afrika

2011
Tunawezaje kudhihirisha msingi wa Kibiblia wa tumaini letu na kulithibitisha kwa Wakristo na kwa wasioamini walioshirikishwa? Tunawezaje kutamka matumaini yetu kwa Wabunge, kwa wafanya biashara au kwa akina mama? Tunawezaje kupeperusha bendera ya tumaini katika dunia inayozama kwenye ukosefu wa matumaini na utazamiaji mabaya tu? Hivyo, tunayo furaha kubwa kuwasilisha hoja za Dk. Thomas Schirrmacher. Matamko haya hujumuisha nia yetu ya kufungua hazina ya tumaini la Kibiblia kwa wengi, yaani wanatheolojia na watu wa kawaida; na kuwatia moyo kufikiri juu ya somo hili.

Suffering, Persecution and Martyrdom

2010
In addition to the full text of the extensive Bad Urach Statement “Towards an evangelical theology of suffering, persecution and martyrdom for the global church in mission” and the short Bad Urach Call, the compendium includes papers from twelve contributors covering a wide perspective on the theology of suffering. Isaiah Majok Dau from Sudan addresses how to face human suffering from a biblical and theological perspective. Rolf Hille from Germany contributes a biblical-theological response to the problem of theodicy in the context of modern criticism of religion. Charles L Tieszen from the United States attempts a comprehensive definition of persecution from a theological perspective which is communicable with a sociological perspective. Margaretha N Adiwardana from Brazil, a Chinese-Indonesian who left her country of birth due to harassment, examines the biblical teaching on perseverance. She maintains that from an eschatological perspective, suffering leads to blessing for those who endure it. Josef Ton from Romania, retired in the United States, describes suffering and martyrdom as a defining and essential Christian characteristic, with the major example being Christ’s death on the cross. Young Kee Lee, a South Korean now living in the United States tries to trace God’s mission in suffering and martyrdom. He postulates that there is a kind of suffering that is instrumental in advancing God’s kingdom. Thomas J Wespetal, a theological lecturer in Ukraine, from the United States deals with how God’s plan is furthered through the martyrdom event and attempts to highlight the value of dying for the Christian faith. Christof Sauer, a German living in South Africa, analyzes the work of the influential German mission leader Karl Hartenstein (1894-1952) who has developed a “theology of mission under the cross”. He maintains that suffering and martyrdom characterize the mission of the church which takes place in the interim between Christ’s ascension and second coming. Thomas Schirrmacher from Germany addresses a variety of theological and ethical issues. One of his emphases is on the sustaining role of the Holy Spirit in suffering and martyrdom. Peter Beyerhaus, also from Germany, was given the task to focus on an eschatological perspective, concerning the church of Christ in the shadow of the approaching Antichrist. According to his opinion present day persecution can be regarded as a foreshadowing of the apocalyptic escalation of persecution. Reg Reimer from Canada and with lifelong experience in advocacy in South-East Asia, shares his insights on persecution, advocacy and mission at the beginning of the 21st century. Richard Howell from India, dealing with the recent killings of Christians in Orissa, maintains that forgiveness and reconciliation are proper Christian responses to suffering and martyrdom.

What Difference Does the Trinity Make?

2009
As a young man, Tom Johnson found himself to be a member of a small church that was rapidly becoming an authoritarian, legalistic, irrational cult. After observing the destructive results of this pseudo-church in the lives of its members, Johnson and some other students began a biblical critique of the movement which led to its disintegration and collapse. Some former members rejected the Christian faith because of what they had experienced. Johnson began an anxious quest for an alternate model or paradigm on what the Christian faith and life are, because he felt that continuing to be a practicing Christian might be possible with a better overall perspective on what Christians should believe and how they should live. This book contains some of the fruit of his anxious quest, a renewed Trinitarian faith and worldview.

Tractatus Logico-Theologicus

2005
Professor Montgomery, while a student at Cornell University, had contact with Norman Malcolm, disciple and close friend of Wittgenstein, and cut his teeth in formal logic under the instruction of Max Black, allegedly one of the very few to have understood on first reading Russell and Whitehead‘s argumentation in their Principia Mathematica. Montgomery‘s university teaching career in history, law, literature, and theology, combined with that philosophical background, led to the production of the present work, which offers a comprehensive apologetic for classical Christianity. Consisting of over 1,800 propositions in logical sequence, Montgomery‘s Tractatus is accompanied by detailed scripture, name, and subject indexes. The coverage is emarkable, embracing logic, literature, history, myth, science, philosophy, jurisprudence, political theory, and theology – interspersed throughout with the wit and rapier thrusts of a barrister at home in adversarial contexts. Wittgenstein‘s Tractatus, having demonstrated the limits of any non-transcendental attempt to understand the world, ended with the proposition, “Of that which one cannot speak, one must remain silent.” Montgomery, after setting forth in depth the overwhelming case for the very transcendental revelation for which Wittgenstein longed but never found, concludes: “Whereof one can speak, thereof one must not be silent.” The Tractatus Logico-Theologicus purports to break new ground apologetically, as did the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus epistemologically. It should be of particular interest to philosophers of religion, theologians, pastors, historians of ideas, and to everyone seeking solid answers for the ultimate questions which plague all of us at one time or another, especially during what St John of the Cross labeled “the dark night of the soul.”

The Law of Freedom

2005
Isn’t it true that we live under the dispensation of grace since the days of the New Testament? Why do we still need the law? After all, isn’t Christ the fulfillment of the law? And isn’t love the new command that fully suffices? Numerous people are preoccupied with these as well as many similar questions. Many see the laws of God as being too stifling, and severe, but they aren’t aware that it is exactly the New Testament that describes them as being the ”perfect Law of liberty“ (James 1:25, KJV). Its intention is to lead us to the path of freedom and toward a successful and fulfilling life. Yes indeed, it is a law whereby we can live. In this book Wolfgang Wegert explores the apparent opposition between Law and Freedom and how these two can become united in a living harmony.

Sovereignty and Responsibility

2002
Sovereignty and Responsibility has been the topic of theology and philosophy for nearly 2000 years. Can there possibly be said anything new on this topic? Has not everything been said before? Can anyone surpass Augustine, Luther or Wesley? And if the author from his personal theological tradition as a leading Reformed Systematic theologian stands on one side of the old fight between Calvinist and Arminian Christians, why should that be of any relevance? I am convinced that this book is a breakthrough on the topic of Sovereignty and Responsibility. On the one side the author is very old-fashioned, using the Bible as the governing source of theology and being deeply rooted in historical theology. But his emphasis on the Bible at the same time makes him very modern and innovative, because he is not content with playing Scripture off against Scripture, as is often the case in the debate. He wants to listen to the biblical arguments of others and examine himself very thoroughly to make sure that he has taken into account their Biblical arguments. The Church of Christ has to battle for theological unity and cannot leave out certain biblical elements and revelations, because they do not fit into traditional theological systems. Henry Krabbendam has done the Church a major favour by asking the question, whether we really have built our Systematic theology on the whole Holy Scriptures.

Sheria au Roho?

2007
Mtazamo huu mbadala unasisitiza mitazamo ya kimaadili ya Wagalatia, ukitaka kuthibitisha kuwa Waraka kwa Wagalatia haupingani tu na washika sheria bali pia na kundi la pili la wapinzani wa Paulo, ambao walipingana kabisa na Agano la Kale na Sheria, na waliishi maisha ya zinaa kwa jina la uhuru wa Ukristo, kipekee, mtazamo uliwekwa na Komentari ya Wilhelm Lutgert ya Mwaka 1919. Paulo anapambana dhidi ya kutanguliwa kwa Sheria ya Agano la Kale na vilevile dhidi ya kuitumia Sheria hii kama njia ya wokovu badala ya neema ya Mungu.

Paul in Conflict with the Veil

2002
Exegetical examination of 1 Corinthians 11,2-16, following an alternative view of John Lightfoot, member of the Westminster assembly in the 16th century. Schirrmacher argues that from the biblical teaching that man is the head of woman (1 Cor 11:3) the Corinthians had drawn the false conclusions that in prayer a woman must be veiled (11:4-6) and a man is forbidden to be veiled (11:7), and that the wife exists for the husband but not the husband for the wife (11:8-9). Paul, however, rejected these conclusions and showed in 11:10-16 why the veiling of women did not belong to God’s commandments binding upon all the Christian communities. After stating the thesis and presenting his alternative translation and exposition of 1 Cor 11:2-16, he considers the difficulties in the text, presents his alternative exposition in detail (in the form of thirteen theses), discusses quotations and irony in 1 Corinthians, and deals with other New Testament texts about women’s clothing and prayer and about the subordination of wives.

Natural Law Ethics

2005
Throughout the twentieth century evangelical theology and philosophy neglected or rejected the topic of natural law ethics. This pushed the evangelical community toward extreme positions with regard to culture and an inability to speak to the great ethical questions of our time in a manner that is both true to the evangelical faith and understandable in a post-Christian society. This study is an attempt to regain the classical Protestant doctrine of natural law ethics, which also brings this topic into dialog with important developments in philosophy and the social sciences. It is motivated by a heart-felt desire for a new evangelical voice that is able to contribute responsibly to the moral foundations of western culture.
