A literalist interpretation of the Genesis origin myth of the Fall is simply not compatible with proven science about the evolution of the universe and the human species. So how does a modern Christian understand the doctrines of Atonement and Original Sin that emanated from the origin myth of the Fall? Kevin Treston proposes a telling of the Christian story from the perspective of Emergence, rather than Fall, as an evolutionary faith journey. Such a story challenges the Christian church to respond creatively to the whole new world with such issues as globalisation, cyber technology, growing disparity between rich and poor, scientific consciousness, ecumenism, gender equity movements and a growing ecological crisis.

The Christian faith is something people practice. The Church prays, listens to the Scriptures, celebrates the sacraments, cares for the suffering, and liberates the oppressed. This is where the task of theology begins.In Love Makes No Sense, each chapter engages central issues of theology but remains focused on the Christian life. Although it is a book about doctrine—Christian teaching—it insists that one cannot present a doctrine of the Trinity, or Incarnation, or anything else in the abstract. Teaching divorced from everyday life is not Christian teaching. This does not mean this book is primarily 'practical' as opposed to 'theological'. It is an invitation to Christian theology that refuses to separate the two. The aim of this book is not to satisfy the intellect, but to train its readers through approachable theological teaching to live the love that Christian theology proclaims.Suitable for people looking to explore Christian theology more deeply, be they life-long Christians who want a deeper understanding of their faith, new Christians, or those who are interested in the Christian faith and looking to find out more.
German photography pioneer Karl Blossfeldt photographed plants so beautifully, and with such originality, that his work transcends the medium itself. Over more than 30 years, he took thousands of photographs, revealing a formally rigorous talent whose precision and dedication bridge the nineteenth and twentieth century worlds of image making and bring a distinctly sculptural aspect to a firmly two-dimensional art form. Beautifully but starkly composed against plain cardboard backgrounds, Blossfeldt's images, relying on a northern light for their sense of volume, reveal nothing of the man but everything of themselves. They are still-lifes, piercingly final statements on their subject, and have endured owing to their technical brilliance and the ongoing fascination of students and photographers. Like their maker, they are quietly and lastingly effective. Литература на английском, немецком и французском языках.
Describes the world's leading approach to art and design taught at Rhode Island School of Design At Rhode Island School of Design students are immersed in a culture where making questions, ideas, and objects, using and inventing materials, and activating experience all serve to define a form of critical thinking—albeit with one's hands—i.e. «critical making.» The Art of Critical Making, by RISD faculty and staff, describes fundamental aspects of RISD's approach to «critical making» and how this can lead to innovation.
