Item Description...
Overview
This collection of essays on the theme of repentance/penitence emerged from an assembly of biblical scholars, systematic theologians, and church historians at the 2003-2004 meetings of the American Academy of Religion/Society of Biblical Literature. Walter Brueggemann, one of the respondents to the project, calls this collection "a wondrous and rich collage of historical and contemporary probes into the specific teachings and practices of penitence." This volume is a major resource for the interpretation, theology, and practice of communal and individual penitence. Each chapter begins with the examination of a particular aspect of the theme-repentance in the Synoptic Gospels and Acts, private confession in the German Reformation, a Pentecostal understanding of penitence, the Catholic call to conversion. Implications of that aspect to the overall theme are given, along with a list of further readings and interpretative reflections by the assembly on the results of the project. This volume gives teachers, preachers, and serious students of theology an exhaustive source of information and inspiration for renewing the initial call of Jesus to "Repent and believe in the Gospel" (Mark 1:15).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
repentence as central to Christianity  Jan 3, 2007
With wayward politicians and movie stars continually giving lip service to repentance when their embarrassments and sometimes crimes are discovered, the theologians and professors of religion of the 18 collected articles bring readers back to the fundamentals of genuine repentance. Repentance has always had a central place especially in Christianity. "Repentance is not an onerous burden...where we enter into darkness dealing with various unpleasantries...[r]ather the joy for which we so deeply long is experienced in and through the practice of confession." Repentance is examined as a subject in books of the Old and New Testaments, part of religious history, and different theological traditions, among these Catholicism, Protestantism and its Pentecostal movement, and African-American Christian spirituality, in fulfillment of the book's aim of providing a "resource for the interpretation, theology, and practice of penitence within the Christian tradition."
