Systematic Theology: Vol 2
Systematic Theology: Vol 2
by Wolfhart Pannenberg
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Pannenberg Volume 2, 5 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are comsidering this book you are familiar with Christian theology. Pannenberg's emphasis is often on the historical aspect of faith, which he develops and concretes with skill. Volume 2 focuses on Christ and humanity. Bromiley's translation is very good (allegedly; I do not have German to check faithfulness) and is very readable. Having read Pannenberg, I think this is perhaps his best single book.

The book itself is a sturdy hardback (which I remember borrowing as a student sevaral years back) and is a good edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good primer, 28 Nov. 2011
Four volumes in a single cover. McGrath is still perhaps the best known academic theologian in evangelicalism, and this combines four of his earlier works that as with many theologians cover foundational ideas one step at a time.

Much easier than his academic work, and aimed at a more popular audience, it nevertheless covers alot of themes that all to often receive superficial treatment in contemporary Christian bestsellers.

I find McGraths style engaging and genuine, and often find he prompts further consideration of ideas that otherwise seem dry and unconvincing. While the book might seem dauntinly chunky, it is easy to pick up and read, especially if you regularly make quiet time to read about your faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Christian Writings, 31 Oct. 2011
Some of the earliest non-Biblical Christian writing.
Notably the Didache (Teaching), some letters from Ignatius, and Clement of Rome writing to the Corinthian Church.
Many Christians are unaware of their religions early history, relying entirely on the NT and anecdote. This little book makes good translations of these important documents easily accessible. As with alot of well-known early writing, the specific contents are also available online, of course, but it is harder to access them this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, but good, nrsv, 11 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paperback economy version, no frills, but readable. The text itself is ordinary size, not too small as is often the case in cheap bibles. The binding is laminated paperback, which once opened will be noticeably creased. The paper used is not thin, for once, so will take some wear and helps legibility. I keep two as knockabout reference versions on handy shelves. NRSV is, of course, a standard reliable translation.

Did literally what it says on the tin. Angle the spray wrong (eg vertically down) and some cold propellant is sprayed out, but this evaporates and it didn't damage the circuits.

5.0 out of 5 stars The prologue to McGraths Scientific Theology, 13 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
McGrath is one of the better known evangelical theologians, who now focuses on apologetics and the interaction of Christianity with the natural sciences. He was previously Professor of of Historical Theology at Oxford, and originally trained as a scientist.

This is the first, foundational book for his new 'scientific theology' which links scientific insight with Christian thought. In it he painstakingly lays the academic groundwork, defining terms, drawing parallels, generally making the point that Christian theology and our understanding of the natural world have more in common than might at first be thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively easy to read with hidden depths, 13 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Glittering Images (Paperback)
Howatch sets this drama in the Church of England just before WWII. The title phrase is shot through the book, the glittering image with the true, darker reality behind.

I was impressed by the first half of the book, at it draws you in to the mystery in the fictional cathedral city of Starbridge, based on Salisbury. The style is that of detective fiction and psychological thriller, not usually my thing, but this is very well done and in this case had me riveted.

The second section starts ponderously, with the main character Charles's psychology, and his paternal problems - transparently Freudian, a bit overdone perhaps, but accurate for the time in which it is set.

The final section returns to the mystery, and several resolutions are reached in a surprisingly fast conclusion that is nevertheless satisfying and encouraging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game overall,with some problems, 18 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought SC as the unofficial successor to the old classic Total Annihilation, since its by the same guy. I find its as big and power hungry a game as I was led to believe. The maps are so huge you end up playing most of the game zoomed out so that the units are symbols (so much for the excellent close up graphics). Nevertheless the gameplay is good, once you get to grips with the strengths of the gear (artillery and special T4 units are great once youve figured how to use them right). The sound is nice, terrain and maps are well made, and the variety of the factions is a significant factor in gameplay. With a decent computer it runs fine, but its easy to see how a slightly lower end system would have problems (less so nowadays though). The multiplayer option is not very smooth, and hard to get into, with some obvious common gliches, but maybe with time I'tll get better.
In short, its turning out to be a good game the more I stick at it, but its been frustrating getting this far, especially since battles routinely take hours to play.
