Originally published in English in 1988, Joseph Ratzinger's Eschatology remains internationally recognized as a leading text on the "last things"--heaven and hell, purgatory and judgment, death and the immortality of the soul. This highly anticipated second edition includes a new preface by Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict XVI and a supplement to the bibliography by theologian Peter A. Casarella. Eschatology presents a balanced perspective of the doctrine at the center of Christian belief--the Church's faith in eternal life. Recognizing the task of contemporary eschatology as "to marry perspectives, so that person and community, present and future, are seen in their unity," Joseph Ratzinger brings together recent emphasis on the theology of hope for the future with the more traditional elements of the doctrine. His book has proven to be as timeless as it is timely.

The first modern translation of the complete texts of La Mettrie's pioneering L'Homme machine and L'Homme plante, first published in 1747 and 1748, respectively, this volume also includes translations of the advertisement and dedication to L'Homme machine. Justin Leiber's introduction illuminates the radical thinking and advocacy of the passionate La Mettrie and provides cogent analysis of La Mettrie's relationship to such important philosophical figures as Descartes, Malebranche, and Locke, and of his lasting influence on the development of materialism, cognitive studies, linguistics, and other areas of intellectual inquiry.

When first published in 1966, this systematic, theoretical treatise introduced the term social construction,effectively creating a new thought and transforming Western philosophy.

This is not just "another" book of systematic theology. It is unique!In this volume, you will find thorough explanations of the fundamental doctrines of the Christian church, presented not as a theory, but as teaching to be believed and practiced. Those doctrines that are considered to be "distinctives" of the Pentecostal movement (Divine Healing, the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, and spiritual gifts) are given more extensive treatment.Co-authored by seasoned and trustworthy men who devoted their lives to scholarly study of the Word, systematic teaching, and expository preaching, this book provides an unmatched resource for all who seek to know sound doctrines that can be incorporated into life and ministry.To our knowledge, there is not another textbook of Pentecostal theology as comprehensive as this.
