Eating Together Becoming One

In November 2015, Pope Francis called on theologians to explore whether normal Catholic practice should be changed to allow Christians, belonging to other churches, to share fully at the table when they take part in a Eucharist celebrated by Catholics. Thomas O’Loughlin provides his contribution to that challenge in this volume. He argues that the various ways of thinking about what we are doing in the liturgy should lead us to see intercommunion as enhancing our participation in the mystery of the Church and the mystery we celebrate.

What Does Theology Do Actually

"What Does Theology Do, Actually? Observing Theology and the Transcultural" is to be the first in a series of 5 books, each presented under the same question – "What Does Theology Do, Actually?", with vols. 2–5 focusing on one of the theological subdisciplines. This first volume proceeds from the observation of a need for a highly inflected "trans-cultural", and not simply "inter-cultural", set of perspectives in theological work and training. The revolution brought about across the humanities disciplines through globalization and the recognition of "multiple modernities" has introduced a diversity of overlapping cultural content and multiple cultural and religious belongings not only into academic work in the humanities and social sciences, but into the Christian churches as well. [Was treibt Theologie aktuell? Beobachtungen zu der Systematischen Theologie und dem Transkulturellen] "Was treibt Theologie aktuell? Beobachtungen zur Systematischen Theologie und dem Transkulturellen" soll das erste in einer Reihe von fünf Büchern sein, welche alle unter der Titelfrage präsentiert werden, wobei sich die Bände 2 bis 5 auf jeweils andere theologische Disziplinen konzentrieren. Dieser erste Band geht von der Beobachtung aus, dass nicht nur interkulturelle, sondern auch transkulturelle Perspektiven in der theologischen Arbeit und Lehre notwendig sind. Die Revolution, welche den Geisteswissenschaften durch die Globalisierung und die Erkenntnis "multipler Modernitäten" gebracht wurde, hat nicht nur in den akademischen Raum der Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften eine Vielfalt sich überschneidender, kultureller Inhalte und multipler religiöser und kultureller Identitäten eingeführt, sondern auch in die christlichen Kirchen.

Revelation Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament

This practical commentary on Revelation is conversant with contemporary scholarship, draws on ancient backgrounds, and attends to the theological nature of the text. Sigve Tonstad, an expert in the early Jewish context of the New Testament, offers a nonretributive reading of Revelation and addresses the issue of divine violence. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs, showing how the text shapes moral habits, and making judicious use of photos and sidebars in a reader-friendly format.
