10677 Using God's Resources Wisely: Isaiah and Urban Possibility
Walter Brueggeman
Westminster/John Knox Press
ISBN 0-664-25460-8
EJ - Ethics / EJB / Book
New and different readings of biblical texts are one consequence of a growing awareness of the environmental crisis and how it relates to social relations, especially in urban settings. Walter Brueggemann explores readings from Isaiah and how they relate to the environment and urban crisis. He approaches the readings as an artistic-theological history of the city of Jerusalem--a case study of urban environmental crisis that resulted from a lost sense of covenantal neighborliness. Reflecting on Jerusalem, its failure, demise, and prospect, Brueggemann uncovers some alarming parallels in today's urban cities, and offers a demanding but hopeful challenge to faith.

MI - Mission / MIL / Book
This book is a collection of eleven essays about the practice of mission.

The next section deals with the issue of transformation in mission work and the related concerns of mutuality, solidarity, and marginality. The third section takes up the situation of the relation of Christianity to other religions. Finally, the last four essays take up spirituality as an inward and outward event, doing mission in the context of North America, and finally the development of a new theological identity based on the image of God as a missionary God.

10672 No Other Name?: A Critical Survey of Christian Attitudes Toward the World Religions
Paul F. Knitter
Orbis Books
ISBN 0-88344-347-3
REL - Religions / RELK / Book
An honest discussion regarding how devout Christians should react to the academic evidence and genuine personal experience that other religious ways result in engaged, loving and moral lives. Does being "saved," by the Christian definition, require a faith in Jesus Christ - meaning the historical person - or rather is it only important that human beings life their lives in accordance to His teachings. This books argues that one can be committed to a savior of "some other name," and simultaneously be aligned with Christian theologically and commitment.
