Dictionary of Christian Spirituality Por Glen G. Scorgie (General Editor); Simon Chan (Guest Editor); Gordon T. Smith (Guest Editor); James D. SmithIn recent decades Christian spirituality, spiritual formation and spiritual theology have become important concepts in the global evangelical community. Consequently, an accessible and reliable academic resource is needed on these topics--one that will offer a discerning orientation to the wealth of ecumenical resources available while still highlighting the distinct heritage and affirming the core grace-centered values of classic evangelical spirituality. The Dictionary of Christian Spirituality reflects an overarching interpretive framework for evangelical spiritual formation: a holistic and grace-filled spirituality that encompasses relational (connecting), transformational (becoming), and vocational (doing) dynamics. At the same time, contributors respectfully acknowledge the differences between Reformed, Holiness, and Pentecostal paradigms of the spiritual life. And, by bringing together writers from around the world who share a common orthodoxy, this reference work is truly global and international in both its topical scope and contributors. Entries give appropriate attention to concepts, concerns, and formative figures in the evangelical tradition of spirituality that other reference work neglect. They offer a discerning orientation to the wealth of ecumenical resources available, exploring the similarities and differences between Christianity and alternate spiritualities without lapsing into relativism. The Dictionary of Christian Spirituality is a resource that covers a wide range of topics relating to Christian spirituality and is biblically engaged, accessible, and relevant for all contemporary Christians.

The New Dictionary of Pastoral Studies Por Wesley Carr (Editor)The New Dictionary of Pastoral Studies is a major new reference work offering comprehensive discussion of the subjects of interest to anyone studying or involved in pastoral work. Written by a team of 212 international scholars and practitioners, this dictionary includes some 800 articles covering every subject touching on the field of pastoral studies.

Foundations of pastoral counselling : integrating philosophy, theology and psychotherapy Por Neil PembrokeFoundations of Pastoral Counselling offers a completely new approach to its subject, through an integration of philosophical ideas, theological thought, and psychotherapeutic psychology. Using the work of philosophers including Martin Buber, Simone Weil and Søren Kierkegaard to begin the conversation in each chapter the author then draws on relevant theologians and psychotherapeutic thinkers to enrich the dialogue. The result is a rich, multi-faceted, and often surprising round-table discussion about the fundamental issues in pastoral counselling.
Dementia Por John SwintonDementia is one of the most feared diseases in Western society today. Some have even gone so far as to suggest euthanasia as a solution to the perceived indignity of memory loss and the disorientation that accompanies it. In this book John Swinton develops a practical theology of dementia for caregivers, people with dementia, ministers, hospital chaplains, and medical practitioners as he explores two primary questions: Who am I when I've forgotten who I am? What does it mean to love God and be loved by God when I have forgotten who God is? Offering compassionate and carefully considered theological and pastoral responses to dementia and forgetfulness, Swinton's Dementia: Living in the Memories of God redefines dementia in light of the transformative counter story that is the gospel.
Leading Congregations Through Crisis Por Gregory Lynn HuntOn July 12, 2009, 23 youth and adult sponsors from First Baptist Church in Shreveport, La., were involved in a tragic bus accident, leaving two dead and others seriously injured. Rev. Gregory Hunt suddenly found himself leading a congregation in crisis. From that grueling experience, Hunt has crafted a book pastors need to read even as they hope they'll never use it. Putting Christ and mission at the book's center, Hunt examines what happens when crisis strikes and how pastors and congregations can prepare for future crises. Ten different types of crises - ranging from violence to natural disasters to internal congregational strife - provide insight into how pastors can lead congregations through harrowing times into a healthy future.

Las Escrituras ocupan un lugar decisivo en nuestra identidad compartida como cristianos reformados. Si bien valoramos nuestras tradiciones teológicas y nuestra política, la Escritura siempre tiene la palabra autoritativa final sobre nuestra fe y vida. No miramos las Escrituras porque es algo común o "tradicional", o porque la iglesia le ha dado autoridad. En palabras de la Confesión belga, creemos en las enseñanzas de las Escrituras "porque el Espíritu Santo testifica en nuestros corazones que son de Dios y también porque demuestran que son de Dios" (artículo 5).
Esta serie de videos de tres partes explora lo que significa para los cristianos reformados leer e interpretar la Biblia como la Escritura, como la Palabra de Dios. La serie de videos se desarrolló en respuesta a una recomendación aprobada por el Sínodo General 2016, que llama a una discusión de toda la denominación centrada en una comprensión reformada de la naturaleza, el propósito, la autoridad y la interpretación de las Escrituras (MGS 2016, p. 87).
