Responding to the request of Professor Ruben Zimmermann, University of Mainz, and Professor Jörg Frey, University of Zürich and the General Editor of the WUNT series, Professor Moloney has gathered studies on the Gospel of John that date from his earliest published essay (1975) to a series of studies that are published in this volume for the first time (2017). Professor Moloney has edited and retouched all the studies to form a unified text and style-sheet. After an introductory essay mapping the personal and scholarly journey of Professor Moloney, the book has three sections: the Johannine world, Johannine Theology, and studies of the Johannine text. As well as the original contribution made by each single study, the book as a whole reflects almost half a century of Johannine scholarship. It contains full indices of authors, citations, and themes.

A Friendly Guide to Women in the New Testament

by Rosemary Canavan

A Friendly Guide to Women in the New Testament
Editions:Paperback
ISBN: 9781925073355

This Friendly Guide introduces the reader to the multitude of women in the New Testament. All take their place in the story of Jesus and the development of the Jesus movement after the resurrection. They are mothers, daughters, sisters and wives living in the first century, with all of its limitations on their participation in public life. Yet they are present, remembered and influential from Jesus' birth, through his public ministry to his passion and death, and as first witnesses to the resurrection. This volume celebrates their contribution and hopes to inspire women and men today in their faithful service.

A Friendly Guide to Women in the New Testament explores in detail what we know of the women from the biblical text and elucidates their faith, courage and action in the mission of Jesus and also that of Paul and the early days of the developing faith communities. The Friendly Guide identifies and highlights the women who came to follow Jesus in his time or after the resurrection. It illuminates their faith, their sharing of their gifts and talents and their contribution as disciples, apostles, benefactors, deacons and household church hosts. At its conclusion, the Friendly Guide finds a beginning and an invitation to the saints of today to take inspiration and encouragement from these early saints to proclaim the good news in today's world.

Eucharist as a celebration of forgiveness

by Francis J. Moloney

Eucharist as a celebration of forgiveness
Editions:Paperback
ISBN: 9780809153169
Pages: 136

This book is an in-depth study of the history and theology of the Eucharist as primarily a celebration of forgiveness rather than as a tool for exclusion, and the ethical consequences that arise from such a study. The author first tracks how we came to the &; exclusive; and; need for holiness&; criterion for admission to the eucharistic table. He then gives a summary of how all the gospel narratives indicate the celebration of forgiveness. Next he focuses on the history and theology of legitimate &; exclusion&; from the eucharistic table. Lastly, he explores a theology of Eucharist as forgiveness and its ethical consequences.

Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ

by Gerald O'Collins SJ AC

Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ
Editions:Hardcover
ISBN: 9780198799542
Pages: 128

Despite an enormous amount of literature on St Augustine of Hippo, this work provides the first examination of what he taught about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Augustine expounded Christ’s resurrection in his sermons, letters, Answer to Faustus the Manichean, the City of God, Expositions of the Psalms, and the Trinity. Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ: Teaching, Rhetoric, and Reception explores what Augustine held about the centrality of Christ’s resurrection from the dead, the agency of Christ›s resurrection, and the nature of his risen existence. Leading scholar, Gerald O’Collins, investigates the impact of his resurrection on others and his mediatory role as the risen High Priest. O’Collins then unpicks Augustine’s rhetorical justification for the resurrection of Christ: evidence from creation, human history, and the desires of all human beings. This ground-breaking study illustrates the enduring significance of Augustine’s teaching on and apologetic for the resurrection, and updates, augments, and corrects what Augustine held.

Lost in Translation

The English Language and the Catholic Mass

by Gerald O'Collins SJ AC, John Wilkins OBE

Lost in Translation: The English Language and the Catholic Mass
Editions:Paperback
ISBN: 9780814644577
Pages: 132

This book takes a systematic look at the 2010 English translation of the Roman Missal and its failure to achieve what Vatican II mandated: the full and easy participation of priest and people. Critiquing the unsatisfactory principles for translation prescribed by the Vatican instruction Liturgiam Authenticam (2001), this book tells the story of the manoeuvrings that sidelined the 1998 translation that had already been approved by the eleven conferences of English-speaking bishops. Criticising many details in the 2010 translation, an odd ‘sacred vernacular’ that hovers between Latin and English, the book illustrates the clear superiority of the 1998 translation, the ‘Missal that never was.’

Gebrochenes Brot für gebrochene Menschen

Eucharistie im Neuen Testament

Gebrochenes Brot für gebrochene Menschen: Eucharistie im Neuen Testament

A Body Broken for a Broken People

In his studies of the Eucharistic theology in the Gospels and Paul, the internationally renowned New Testament scholar Francis J. Moloney shows what the eucharistic practice of the early Christians of the Church is to this day: The Eucharist is not a reward for the perfect, but God’s graceful Food for the weak and broken. Encouraged by the appeal of Pope Francis to further deepen the biblical and theological background on the issue of the sacrament of remarried divorced, the author also devoted himself to this question in his studies in detail. This is not just a book for scientists, though it does contain comments that place the author’s reflections on the broader scientific discussion on these issues. These remarks retain much of their previous documentation, but bring them up to date in terms of scale and foundation. However, they may be ignored. Moloney tries to write in a way that is understandable to all people who are interested in how the Eucharist is celebrated and lived in the Christian churches.
