Worship, Community and the Triune God of GraceIVP Academic - Here is a book that sets our worship, sacraments, communion and language of God back on track. This book explodes the notion that the doctrine of the Trinity may be indispensable for the creed but remote from life and worship. Worship is the gift of participating through the Spirit in the incarnate Son's communion with the Father, writes Torrance.
Firmly rooted in scripture and theology, alive with pastoral counsel and anecdote, Torrance's work shows us just why real trinitarian theology is the very fiber of Christian confession. In a day when refinement of method and quality of experience are the guiding lights for many Christians, James Torrance points us to the indispensable who of worship, the triune God of grace.

Learning about Theology from the Third WorldZondervan - After an introductory chapter on the nature and problems of contextualization, the book gives major overviews of the theology of Africa, Latin America, and Asia. It is dyrness' thesis that if we approach these sometimes unsettling writings as learners rather than teachers, we will find our own perspectives significantly altered.
Learning about theology from the third world is designed to introduce western Christians to discussions about theology going on in the Third World. With the growing awareness of cultural diversity, evangelicals are beginning to realize that "growing up into Christ in all things" Eph. 4:15 is a corporate enterprise.
Issues are presented in such a way as to show that each area of the world has developed a unique approach to theological issues, and that each perspective has something to contribute to the development of theology. The maturity of the whole church demands this kind of inter-change. The assumption is that western thinking about theology has not taken third world perspectives into account, and the day has come for us to bring these brothers and sisters into our conversations about Christianity.
Learning about Theology from the Third World - Due to involvement in mission and international travel, many Westerners are beginning to realize how much they have to learn from different cultural traditions.

Understanding DoctrineZondervan - In this highly readable and much-needed book, why it is important, Alister McGrath explains what doctrine is, and what its limitations are. Yet every time we talk about God, Jesus, or the Bible we end up making doctrinal statements. He then briefly examines three key doctrines to illustrate his points: the Incarnation, the Atonement, and the Trinity.
Used book in Good Condition. If our faith is to be coherent and if we want to grow in our faith, we cannot avoid thinking about doctrine. Christianity is not, and never has been, about finding the right combination of words! It is about encountering the living and loving God. From this truth many people have drawn the wrong conclusion that doctrine is irrelevant, except maybe for theologians.
