Suffering And The Christian Life (eBook)
Sobre o livro
This volume approaches questions of the status and meaning of suffering in Christian life and Christian theology through the lens of a variety of theological disciplines-biblical, historical, practical, political and systematic theology.The volume focuses on a number of questions: Is love intrinsically linked with suffering? Are suffering and loss on some level fundamentally good? How is or should suffering and diminishment be viewed in the Christian tradition?The contributors bring together essays touching on concrete issues such as depression, cancer, mental health, and refugees, and discuss broad themes like vulnerability, kenosis, and tragedy. They examine classic texts, from Paul's letters, Romans, and Galatians, to Aquinas, Bonaventure, and John of the Cross.
