Theology books April 2021

Beth Allison Barr

(Brazos Press)

Biblical femininity – the belief that God made women submissive, virtuous mothers, and joyful housewives – permeates North American Christianity. From career choices to roles in local churches to relationship dynamics, this belief shapes the everyday life of evangelical women. Biblical femininity, however, is not Biblical, says Baylor University historian Beth Allison Barr. It emerged from a number of clearly definable historical moments.

This book moves the conversation beyond biblical femininity beyond Greek grammar into the realm of church history – ancient, medieval and modern – to show that this belief is not divinely ordained, but a product of human civilization that continues to exist in the church creeps in. Barr's historical insights provide context for contemporary teaching on the role of women in the Church and help fuel the conversation.

Barr weaves her story as the wife of a Baptist pastor and sheds light on the # ChurchToo movement and abuse scandals in Southern Baptist circles and the wider evangelical world. It helps readers understand why biblical femininity is more about human power structures than about the message of Christ.

Jürgen Moltmann

Fortress press

In this deeply personal and daring meditation, the well-known theologian Jürgen Moltmann questions many beliefs about the experience of dying, the nature of death, and the hope of eternal life. Skillfully moving between biblical, theological, and existential realms, Moltmann argues that while we are well aware of the experience of dying – both the dying of loved ones and ultimately our own – death itself is a mystery. Are those who actually died dead? If the dead live, how or in what way? Who awakens when the dead awaken to eternal life? Moltmann's interrogations bring surprising and beautiful fruits. The living soul that awakens to eternal life is not a spirit in a machine, but the form of life, the form and history of a life, its human and divine contexts, its "whole". Resurrected to Eternal Life is based on themes from the entire spectrum of his work and testifies to the inner unity of Moltmann's theology: the cross, the spirit, the kingdom, the end and the hope that makes the end present here and now. Experienced readers of Moltmann will find on these pages a keystone of a life of theological exploration, while those who are new to his complex thinking will find a concise and elegant introduction to his extensive work.
