Today's common understanding of the important Reformation doctrine of royal priesthood, or the priesthood of all believers, is that it was a somewhat unsophisticated theological metaphor for popular anticlericalism and a rather modern-sounding egalitarian individualism, which could severely undermine the early modern social order. However, this book challenges that typical view, repeated by many modern theologians and historians, through a careful reevaluation ofthe written artifacts of late medieval and early modern England. Rather than individualism and anticlericalism, most contemporary thinkers shaped their presentation of the doctrine so as to account forthe theological and philosophical currents as well as the social and political contexts of their time and place. Such presentations coud be highly nuanced with Christocentric, liturgical, and ecclesiological, as well as political implications.

The fatherhood of God has a central, if increasingly controversial, pleace in Christian thinking about God. Yet although Christians referred to God as Father from the earliest days of the faith, it was not until Athanasius in the fourth century that the idea of God as Father became a topic of sustained analysis. Dr Widdicombe shows how this development took place, starting with the great third century writer, Origen, and continuing with Arius and the famous 'Arian controversy' about the divinity of Jesus Christ, and Athanasius. In the context of modern debate, this is an illuminating and important new study, which will help us consider whether it is either desirable or possible to call God Father.

The first chapters of Genesis are the bedrock of the Jewish and Christian traditions. In these inaugural pages of the canon, the creation of the world, the fall of the human creature, the promise of redemption and the beginning of salvation history are found. Interwoven in the text are memorable stories of the ancient biblical patriarchs and matriarchs. Throughout the history of commentary, interpreters have lavished attention on the rich passages recounting the six days of creation, the tragic fall of God's creature--from the expulsion of the first parents to Cain's fratricide and the catastrophe of the Flood--as well as the allegorical sign of hope in the ark of Noah. Commentators in the Reformation continued this venerable tradition of detailed focus on these primordial stories, finding themselves and their era deeply connected to the tragedies and promises, the genealogies and marvels of God's providential election and governance. Above all, Reformation-era interpreters found anchor for their teaching, preaching and hope in the promise of Christ running through these first chapters, from creation to the calling of Abraham. While following the precedent of patristic and medieval commentators on Scripture, as well as Rabbinic midrash, the Reformers provide insightful and startling fresh readings of familiar passages, inviting readers to see the ancient text with new eyes. This volume collects the comments of not only the monumental thinkers like Luther, Calvin and Melancthon, but also many important figures of the time who are lesser-known today. Here we find rich fare from Johannes Brenz, Wolfgang Capito, Hans Denck, Wolfgang Musculus, Johannes Oecolampadius and Peter Martyr Vermigli. Readers will encounter comments from a wide array of perspectives, from the magisterial Reformers to radical Protestants like Balthasar Hubmaier, Menno Simons, Pilgram Marpeck and Dirk Philips, as well as some Catholic thinkers, such as Desiderius Erasmus and Cardinal Cajetan. Important contributions from female voices, like Katharina Schütz Zell and Anna Maria van Schurman are included also. The wealth of Reformation interpretation is brought together here for study and reflection, much appearing in English for the first time.

The Macarian writings are one of the principal fountainheads of the Christian ascetic and mystical tradition. This book re-evaluates many of the factors which have hindered a due appreciation of the nature of their theological and spiritual legacy. It offers the first attempt at a broad-based analysis of the character of that influence, thereby standing not only as an exploration of the writings themselves but also of the nature of the Christian tradition as a whole.

The work develops resources in the work of Charles S. Pierce (1839-1914) for the purposes of contemporary philosophy. It articulates 'a nested continua model' for theological interpretation, which is indebted to Pierce's creation of 'Existential Graphs', a system of diagrams designed to provide visual representation of the process of human reasoning. Gary Slater investigates how the model can be applied by looking at recent debates in historiography and concludeswith an assessment of the model's theological implications.
