Christian Generosity According To 2 Corinthians 89 (eBook)
Its Exegesis, Reception, And Interpretation Today In Dialogue With The Prosperity Gospel In Sub-Saharan Africa
de Viateur Habarurema
Sobre o livro
The social and religious phenomenon popularly known as the prosperity gospel has made huge inroads in sub-Saharan Africa and raises many questions surrounding Christian giving. In this book, Dr Habarurema applies biblical scholarship, historical enquiry and contemporaneous analysis to generosity and financial reward in 2 Corinthians 89, as well as to the prosperity gospel movement. With a clear focus on the concepts of divine charis and autarkeia, this study provides insight into the apostle Pauls exhortations to care for the poor and vulnerable in society as a manifestation by the church of Gods compassion and grace. The author concludes with a series of hermeneutical and theological recommendations to promote a reading which is faithful to Pauls thoughts in 2 Corinthians 89, fully integrated in Pauls overall theology, and welcoming insights provided by Pentecostal hermeneutics.
