Pauw, Amy Plantinga, The Christian Century


Resisting Structural Evil: Love as Ecological-Economic Vocation, by Cynthia D. Moe-Lobeda (Fortress, 309 pp., $22.00 paperback). Moe-Lobeda's Lutheran acknowledgment of the moral ambiguity of all human action does not deter her from calling for an ethic of love that aims at forging just and sustainable relations between humans and the earth. Her argument is presented in a clear, accessible style and is interspersed with compelling stories.

Stations of the Heart: Parting with a Son, by Richard Lischer (Knopf, 272 pp., $25.00). In this unflinching memoir of his son's death, Lischer offers profound theological reflections on baptism, sanctification, and the interplay of faith and doubt.

The Suffering and Victorious Christ: Toward a More Compassionate Christology, by Richard J. Mouw and Douglas A. Sweeney (Baker Academic, 128 pp., $19.99 paperback). Two white evangelicals think aloud about the strengths and shortcomings of their Reformational traditions and commend the insights of Asian and African-American Christians into the suffering and sorrows of Christ. The afterword by theologian Willie Jennings is both appreciative and critical, and not to be missed.

God, Sexuality, and the Self: An Essay "On the Trinity," by Sarah Coakley (Cambridge University Press, 384 pp., $29.99 paperback).

She writes for general readers as well as trained theologians, but everyone will find this an intellectually demanding book.

The Divided Mind of the Black Church: Theology, Piety and Public Witness, by Raphael G. Warnock (New York University Press, 276 pp., $30.00). Warnock, the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, calls for a renewed synergism between the liberationist impulse of black and womanist theologies and the evangelical piety of the black church. Only when these two forces realign, he contends, can the black church sustain a consistent "over-againstness" in the face of evil and injustice.

Introducing Eastern Orthodox Theology, by Andrew Louth (IVP Academic, 172 pp., $20.00 paperback). This book started out as a series of public lectures, and some of the personal and direct style of those talks remains. Louth, an emeritus professor and Russian Orthodox priest, combines a deft account of the history of the Orthodox tradition with an insider's appreciation of its practices of worship and prayer. …
