Unity And Diversity In The New Testament (Revised)
Unity and Diversity in the New Testament is a thorough investigation into the canon of the New Testament, and Christianity’s origins. It assumes the reader is familiar with the basic question of who wrote the books, when, why etc and it moves on to look in detail at what were the various emphases in the gospel proclaimed by Jesus, Luke, Paul and John. It also examines primitive Christianity’s preaching and teaching, confessional formulae, oral traditions, organisation and worship, concepts of ministry and community, and ritual acts.
In the second half of the book, the author maps out the scope of the diversity he found in the fist half’s investigation. Here he identifies and traces the major currents within the stream of first and second generation Christianity which includes a study of Jewish Christianity, Hellenistic Christianity, Apocalyptic Christianity and Early Catholicism. The book concludes with a consideration of the repercussions of such findings, for how Christians understand the New Testament, and what it means to be Christian, today.
This new edition is further enhanced with the author’s consideration of these same themes, 25 years after he first wrote about them. The final chapter is the authors “critical refinement” of the ideas and issues that remain relevant and important for any realistic theology of canon to be considered today.

Mere Christianity$17.99Add to cart
Arguably the 20th century’s most influential Christian writer, C.S. Lewis sought to explain and defend the beliefs that nearly all Christians at all times hold in common. His simple yet deeply profound classic, originally delivered as a series of radio broadcasts, is a book to be thoroughly digested by believers and generously shared with skeptics. Paperback with French f laps and deckled page edges.
Grief Observed$15.99Add to cart
Written by C. S. Lewis with love and humility, this brief but poignant volume was first published in 1961 and courageously encounters the anger and heart-break that followed the death of his wife, an American-born poet, Joy Davidman. Handwritten entries from notebooks that Lewis found in his home capture the doubt and anguish that we all face in times of great loss. He questions his beliefs in this graceful and poignant affirmation of faith in the face of senseless loss.
