ADVENTISTS AND MILITARY SERVICE
BIBLICAL, HISTORICAL, AND ETHICAL PERSPECTIVES
In a time when wars and war-like conflicts are on the global rise, there is an urgent need to reflect more fully on the role of Christ’s followers as conscientious agents of peace and as conscientious objectors to all forms of violence. By candidly looking at the biblical evidence in the Old and New Testament and by learning from Church History and our own history, the authors of this book address various challenges of military service and try to recover the spirit of the early Christian Church and of Jesus Christ on this issue.
It contains the most complete list of all official Church documents on war and military service that were published by the SDA church from its beginning to the present as well as a comprehensive list of major publications and resources that were written by Seventh-day Adventists. It will be the definite reference work on this subject for years to come.
SCRIPTURE IN THE THEOLOGIES OF
W. PANNENBERG AND D.G. BLOESCH
Scripture has always played an important role in Christian theology. This study originally was accepted as a Ph.D. dissertation and provides an issue oriented overview of the concepts of Scripture in Protestant theology from the 16thcentury Reformation onward. It then sets forth the concepts of Scripture in the theologies of two leading contemporary systematic theologians: Wolfhard Pannenberg and Donald G. Bloesch. It analyzes, compares and evaluates the theological and anthropological presuppositions that have influenced their concept of Scripture and explores the question why despite their appeal to Scripture they arrive at significantly different conclusions.
