No book in the entire Bible has had such an impact for theological conversion as Paul's Epistle to the Romans. St. Augustine came to Christ on hearing Romans 13:11-14; Martin Luther's study of the book brought him to an understanding of salvation by grace alone through faith; John Wesley's heart was "strangely warmed" as he listened to the reading of Luther's Preface to the Book of Romans at a little Moravian chapel in Aldersgate; and Karl Barth sounded the death knell of pre-World War I liberal theology with his Commentary on Romans. Now, Dr. John Warwick Montgomery provides a long-awaited popular exposition of the book from the standpoint of historic Reformation and evangelical commitment. 1. Language: English.

For many enlightened, liberal-minded thinkers today, and for most on the political left, evil is an outmoded concept. It smacks too much of absolute judgements and metaphysical certainties to suit the modern age. In this witty, accessible study, the prominent Marxist thinker Terry Eagleton launches a surprising defence of the reality of evil, drawing on literary, theological, and psychoanalytic sources to suggest that evil, no mere medieval artifact, is a real phenomenon with palpable force in our contemporary world. In a book that ranges from St. Augustine to alcoholism, Thomas Aquinas to Thomas Mann, Shakespeare to the Holocaust, Eagleton investigates the frightful plight of those doomed souls who apparently destroy for no reason. In the process, he poses a set of intriguing questions. Is evil really a kind of nothingness? Why should it appear so glamorous and seductive? Why does goodness seem so boring? Is it really possible for human beings to delight in destruction for no reason at all? 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Thorn.

This book deals with the relationship between initial creation and historical re-creation in the works of Augustine of Hippo. It begins with a detailed study of Augustine's concept of articulation, important in his considerations of speech, writing, history, and epistemology. By charting the way Augustine articulates the arguments of discursive reason in the study of the liberal arts and in notional explication, a general scheme for the thematic articulation of heuristic intentions is established. This scheme is then applied both to Augustine's interpretation of the first creation account of Genesis, and to his description of the experience of kerygmatic proclamation. Due to this common, articulated structure, evangelisation can be understood as the on-going completion of creation narrative within salvation history.
