  • Does God Need The Church

    $39.95

    Are not all religions equally close to and equally far from God? Why, then, the Church? Gerhard Lohfink poses these questions with scholarly reliability and on the basis of his own experience of community in Does God Need the Church?
    In 1982 Father Lohfink wrote Wie hat Jesus Gemeinde gewollt? (translated into English as Jesus and Community) to show, on the basis of the New Testament, that faith is founded in a community that distinguishes itself in clear contours from the rest of society. In that book he also described a sequence of events that moved directly from commonality to a community that was readily accessible to every group of people and was made legitimate by Jesus himself. Only later did Father Lohfink learn, within a new horizon of experience, that such a description is not the way to community. The story of the gathering of the people of God, from Abraham until today, never took place according to such a model.

    Today Father Lohfink states that he would not write Wie hat Jesus Gemeinde gewollt? the same way. The situation of belief and believers has undergone a shift: the question of the Church has become much more urgent. Church life is declining and the religions are returning, often in new guises.

    In light of these shifts and the change in his own view of community, Father Lohfink inquires in Does God Need the Church? of Israel’s theology, Jesus’ praxis, the experiences of the early Christian communities, and of what is appearing in the Church today. These inquiries lead to an amazing history involving God and the world-a history that God presses forward with the aid of a single people and that always turns out differently from what they think and plan.

  • God Dwells With Us

    $29.95

    The image of the Temple speaks of a building, of a place of God’s heavenly presence, and yet the experience of many Christians has been of God’s indwelling in the human heart. In God Dwells with Us, Mary Coloe crosses the centuries through John’s Gospel text and plunges into the experience of the Johannine community. Here, readers receive a sense of God’s indwelling as promised by Jesus, and how it relates to the symbol of the Temple in the gospel narrative.

    In the years after the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple, the Johannine community looked to the symbol of the Temple as a key means of expressing its new faith in Jesus. During his lifetime he was the living presence of Israel’s God dwelling in history. In the absence of the historical Jesus, the believing community-past, present, and future-continue to be a locus for the divine indwelling and so can truly be called a living Temple.

    God Dwells with Us offers a new and consistent perspective on the symbol of the Temple which clarifies the christology of the Fourth Gospel. It establishes a new plot for this gospel-the destroying and raising of the Temple; and shows how this occurs within the text. The chapters provide a new approach to its structure. It is unique in its treatment of John 14:2 where it establishes that the new Temple is the household of believers on earth. It also presents a new interpretation of the Johannine Crucifixion and the scene with Jesus’ mother and the Beloved Disciple.
