Holy Resilience: The Bible’s Traumatic Origins by David M. Carr

English | 2014 | ISBN: 0300204566 | 336 pages | PDF | 1,7 MB

Human trauma gave birth to the Bible, suggests eminent religious scholar David Carr. The Bible’s ability to speak to suffering is a major reason why the sacred texts of Judaism and Christianity have retained their relevance for thousands of years. In his fascinating and provocative reinterpretation of the Bible’s origins, the author tells the story of how the Jewish people and Christian community had to adapt to survive multiple catastrophes and how their holy scriptures both reflected and reinforced each religion’s resilient nature.
Carr’s thought-provoking analysis demonstrates how many of the central tenets of biblical religion, including monotheism and the idea of suffering as God’s retribution, are factors that provided Judaism and Christianity with the strength and flexibility to endure in the face of disaster. In addition, the author explains how the Jewish Bible was deeply shaped by the Jewish exile in Babylon, an event that it rarely describes, and how the Christian Bible was likewise shaped by the unspeakable shame of having a crucified savior.

Theological Essays II by Eberhard Jüngel

English | 2014 | ISBN: 0567409996 | 296 pages | PDF | 25,4 MB

Covering the major topics in Christian dogmatics and philosophical theology, this work includes a comprehensive survey of Jüngel’s own theology; interpretative studies of Kierkegaard and the work of Heinrich Vogel; dogmatic studies of the historical Jesus, the hiddenness of God, the sacrifice of Christ, justification and ethics, aesthetics and theological anthropology. Throughout, the work is characterised by Jungel’s acute analysis of texts and themes in theology and philosophy, and by lively engagement with the intellectual heritage of modernity.

Nagarjuna’s Middle Way: The Mulamadhyamakakarika (Classics of Indian Buddhism) By Mark Siderits, Shoryu Katsura

2013 | 368 Pages | ISBN: 1614290504 | EPUB + MOBI | 2 MB + 2 MB

Nagarjuna’s renowned twentyseven-chapter Fundamental Verses on the Middle Way (Mulamadhyamakakarika), the definitive, touchstone presentation of the doctrine of emptiness, is the foundational text of the Madhyamaka school of Mahayana Buddhist philosophy. Professors Siderits and Katsura prepared this translation using the four surviving Indian commentaries in an attempt to reconstruct an interpretation of its enigmatic verses that adheres as closely as possible to that of its earliest proponents. Each verse is accompanied by concise, lively exposition by the authors conveying the explanations of the Indian commentators. The result is a translation that balances the demands for fidelity and accessibility.

The Theology of Augustine’s Confessions

English | Mar 31, 2015 | ISBN: 1107094925 | 354 Pages | EPUB/PDF| 3.49 MB

This study of the Confessions engages with contemporary philosophers and psychologists antagonistic to religion and demonstrates the enduring value of Augustine’s journey for those struggling with theistic incredulity and religious narcissism.

The Mystical Body of Christ by Fulton J. Sheen

English | Mar 9, 2015 | ISBN: 0870612948 | 352 Pages | EPUB/PDF (Converted) | 2.78 MB

The Mystical Body of Christ captures the theological brilliance of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, nationally renowned Catholic television and radio personality, before his meteoric rise to fame in the 1950s. First published in 1935, this book reveals Sheen’s accessibility and theologically astute teaching styles as he writes about the Church as an extension of the Incarnation. Recent advances in his cause for canonization make this classic text especially timely.
The Mystical Body of Christcaptures the theological precision and communicative genius of Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979), whose radio and television broadcasts, including Life Is Worth Living, have reached millions of homes since the 1950s. With more than thirty of his works still in print, Sheen is one of the most beloved Catholic evangelists of all time.
This full-length and fully developed work on the Church as an extension of the Incarnation reveals Sheen’s accessible and theologically astute teaching style in the early years of his ministry. First published in 1935, the book’s themes of the Eucharist as a source of unity for the Mystical Body of Christ–the Church–and the link between the liturgy and works of social justice were echoed in the Second Vatican Council several decades later.
A recent advance in Sheen’s cause for beatification, the healing of a young boy for which there is no medical explanation, will create renewed interest among his admirers and introduce the spirituality of this Catholic icon to a whole new generation of believers.
