Lorraine V. Aragon, “Fields of the Lord: Animism, Christian Minorities, and State Development”

2000 | pages: 397 | ISBN: 0824821718 | PDF | 1,9 mb

Religious and ethnic violence between Indonesia’s Muslims and Christians escalated dramatically just before and after President Suharto resigned in 1998. In this first major ethnographic study of Christianization in Indonesia, Aragon delineates colonial and postcolonial circumstances contributing to the dynamics of these contemporary conflicts.Aragon’s ethnography of Indonesian Christian minorities in Sulawesi combines a political economy of colonial missionisation with a microanalysis of shifting religious ideology and practice. Fields of the Lord challenges much comparative religion scholarship by contending that religions, like contemporary cultural groups, be located in their spheres of interaction rather than as the abstracted cognitive and behavioural systems conceived by many adherents, modernist states, and Western scholars.Aragon’s portrayal of “near-tribal” populations who characterise themselves as “fanatic Christians” asks the reader to rethink issues of Indonesian nationalism and “modern” development as they converged in President Suharto’s late New Order state. Through its careful documentation of colonial missionary tactics, unexpected postcolonial upheavals, and contemporary Christian narratives, Fields of the Lord analyses the historical and institutional links between state rule and individuals’ religious choices. Beyond these contributions, this ethnography includes captivating stories of Salvation Army “angels of the forest” and nationally marginal but locally autonomous dry-rice and coffee farmers.

G. Michael O’Neal, “Interpreting Habakkuk as Scripture: An Application of the Canonical Approach of Brevard S. Childs”

2006 | pages: 208 | ISBN: 0820439975 | PDF | 5,6 mb

This book draws together two current issues in Old Testament study: canonical analysis and the minor prophets. G. Michael O’Neal applies the canonical approach of Brevard S. Childs to the book of Habakkuk, resulting not only in an evaluation of Childs’s method, but also providing new insights into the canonical shape and theological message of Habakkuk. The findings of textual, historical, literary, formal, and redactional criticisms inform the study. However, O’Neal goes beyond these findings to ascertain the canonical shape of Habakkuk and to illustrate how this shape informs an understanding of the book’s theological message.

Craig G. Bartholomew, “Introducing Biblical Hermeneutics: A Comprehensive Framework for Hearing God in Scripture”

2015 | ISBN-10: 0801039770 | 640 pages | PDF | 10 MB

Renowned scholar Craig Bartholomew, coauthor of the bestselling textbook The Drama of Scripture (75,000 copies sold), writes in his main area of expertise–hermeneutics–to help seminarians pursue a lifetime of biblical interpretation. Integrating the latest research in theology, philosophy, and biblical studies, this substantive hermeneutics textbook is robustly theological in its approach, takes philosophical hermeneutics seriously, keeps the focus throughout on the actual process of interpreting Scripture, and argues that biblical interpretation should be centered in the context and service of the church–an approach that helps us hear God’s address today.
