Sin, Redemption and Sacrifice. A Biblical and Patristic Study - S. Lyonnet,Stanislas Lyonnet,Léopold Sabourin Summary

The present study is made up of three parts. The first one, entitled the notion of sin by Stanislas Lyonnet, starts from the observation that redemption is essentially the destruction of sin. For this reason the treatise on redemption in the New Testament is preceded by an inquiry into the notion of sin, as it derives from the Old Testament, especially from the account of Genesis 3. The second part, also from Stanislas Lyonnet, is devoted to the terminology of redemption in the N.T. The third part, by Leopold Sabourin, is about sacrifice and redemption in the history of St. Paul's formula Christ made sin (2 Cor 5,21). The author examines the most representative testimonies of the ancient and Medieval Greek and Latin writers, and exposes his interpretation of 2 Cor 5, 21, in which the notion of sacrifice for sin appears as a key concept in this formulation.

Images of Redemption - Patrick Sherry Summary

After discussing the "arts of redemption" and their rivals, and introducing soteriology, the theology of salvation, Patrick Sherry argues that the Christian "Drama of Redemption" has three Acts. The next five chapters discuss the three Acts, namely salvation history, our present human life, and the life to come. In each case, Sherry explains how art and literature can lead to an understanding of what is at stake here. His main concern is with the present life: hence three of those chapters deal with that phase of redemption, one of them specifically with "novels of redemption." The last substantial chapter of the book takes up the general issue of how art and literature contribute to religious understanding: Sherry argues that they may be primary expressions of religious belief, as well as "illustrations," and that as such they may criticise or complement theology, or in turn be open to criticism themselves from that quarter. Finally, he summarises the main theme and briefly discusses some of the particular problems of assessing the arts of redemption.The book's most distinctive feature is the way in which it uses art and literature as a means of religious and theological understanding. It is not a survey of the arts of redemption, though it uses a wide variety of examples, including ancient Greek drama, Flemish and Italian painting, religious music, and 19th -20th century novels. These examples are used as a tool for understanding what is one of the most difficult areas of theology.

The Star of Redemption - Franz Rosenzweig,Barbara E. Galli Summary

The Star of Redemption is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding religion and philosophy in the twentieth century. Fusing philosophy and theology, the book assigns both Judaism and Christianity distinct but equally important roles in the spiritual structure of the world. Franz Rosenzweig finds in both biblical religions approaches to a comprehension of reality. The major themes and motifs of The Star—the birth, life, death, and the immortality of the soul; Eastern philosophies and Jewish mysticism; the relationship between God, world and humanity over time; and revelation as the real biblical miracle of faith and path to redemption—resonate meaningfully.

The Law, Redemption and Freedom in Christ - Peter Chidolue Onwuka Summary

The law, redemption and freedom in Christ examines Paul's view of the law and the redemption accomplished in Christ, especially with regard to how the latter affects the former, what the latter has for Christians vis-a-vis the former. It studies these from the point of view of two Pauline passages: Gal 3,10-14 and Rom 7,1-6. The thesis has seven chapters: I and VI consider the historical and literary context with theological reflections, chapter VII offers a synthesis and general conclusion. Peter Chidolue Onwuka, 1966, defended his doctoral thesis at Pontifical Gregorian University.

The Rhetoric of Redemption - David Bobbitt Summary

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream' speech has become an icon of American public culture, its imagery and words profoundly influencing the civil rights debate. In The Rhetoric of Redemption Bobbitt applies Kenneth Burke's theory of guilt-purification-redemption in a close, critical analysis of the speech, developing and examining the implications of Burke's redemption drama in contemporary public discourse. He studies the impact of the speech over time, arguing that, while King's speech contains an inspirational vision of national redemption, it does so by omitting the real difficulties of overcoming America's racial divisions.

Redemption and Recovery - Daniel E. Hood Summary

This ethnography continues the “thick description” of faith-based and science-based drug programs begun in Addiction Treatment. Using extensive interviews and his own participation in daily rounds of treatment, Hood provides a vivid comparison of resident experience at each type of institution. Redemption and Recovery tells the stories of two houses in the Bronx, NY that serve people with drug problems: “Redemption House” and “Recovery House.” These stories include the direct accounts of residents’ “druggin’” lives before treatment and their search for normalcy after recovery or redemption. Other chapters dissect the religion of science-based treatment and compare success rates, religious vs. secular. Addiction Treatment had detailed a similar process of personal conversion central to both treatments. This sequel uses the “contextualized demographics” of residents to uncover profound parallels between the two “unique” programs and debunk their shared ideology of abstinence.

Redemption Stories - Mary Ciofalo Summary

The author has collected and shaped interviews into a book of true stories of the stunning journeys that ordinary people have made from pain to redemption. Unwasted Pain, the subtitle of the book, refers to the process of facing and distilling pain from such difficulties as abuse, hatred, crime, war and evil--and finding more peace and equilibrium (sometimes more than there was before). Besides the twenty-one stories that comprise the chapters of this book, Mary Ciofalo has also written four essays and an introduction that include more vignettes of redemption stories along with her observations about the nature and activation of redemption. She tells us what she has gleaned while compiling this book. She also includes the view of an Advaitan Swami and an Episcopalian minister, as well as those of a former warden of San Quentin Prison. This book is inspirational; and it has the potential to expand one's thinking to include the possibility of redemption to both the harmed and the harmer--in situations where one might not even conceive of mercy or forgiveness or the possibility of redemtption.
