Are “white” people more intelligent than “black” people? Are Jews devious and grabby? Intolerance and violence through racism includes slavery, national socialism in Germany, apartheid in South Africa, or the genocides in Rwanda and Bosnia. But racism is not only wrong theologically, it is not only against the dignity of humans, that guarantees their human rights, but newer genetic research also proves that the whole classification into races is without foundation. Biologically speaking all humans belong to one race. E.g., when you need a blood transfusion, you should not look for a blood donor from your “race”, but someone with the same blood group transcending all “races”.

Tractatus Logico-Theologicus

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 Most Important Rule for Living

The Law of Freedom

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.

The Body, Soul and Spirit Concept of the Bemba in Zambia

The participation in cross-cultural ministry brings two different concepts of being human to light: one’s own concept of being human and that of the members of the culture with one comes to work. This fact causes unwanted misunderstandings and obstacles for the Gospel. How different the concept of man of the Bemba in Zambia in comparison to the western concept of man is, is the subject of this book.

Sovereignty and Responsibility

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?

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.

Shame and Guilt

Eighteen years of missionary service in Guinea, West Africa, and missiological studies led the author to the conclusion that shame and guilt are fundamental elements for the understanding of missions. Traditionally, missionaries with guilt-oriented met shame-oriented indigenous people. The conscience orientation influences personality and culture, and consequently also theology and missions. It influences all spheres of private and public life. Shame and guilt-oriented people have different concepts of sin, salvation and forgiveness. They have different needs in relation to community life. They communicate differently. Newly, these differences occur not only between missionaries and indigenous people, but also between the older and younger generation in Europe and North America.

Natural Law Ethics

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.
