African Christians Or Christian Africans: Byang H. Kato And His Contextual Theology, Sochanngam Shirik Jan 2019

African Christians Or Christian Africans: Byang H. Kato And His Contextual Theology, Sochanngam Shirik

The Asbury Journal

Byang Henry Kato, a promising African Christian leader, passed away in 1975 at only 39 years of age. In spite of his brief career, he has left his imprint on the pages of African Christian history. He is not without his supporters and critics alike. It appears that while his critics have misunderstood him in some aspects, his supporters have not paid enough attention to his theological conviction and articulation. While this article aims at clarifying some of Kato's conviction, it also informs readers how, regardless of context and time, others can appreciate, learn, and even adopt some aspects ...


Testing The Homiletical Buoyancy Of James K. A. Smith's "Narrative Arc" Approach To The Fall, Logan Patriquin Jan 2019

Testing The Homiletical Buoyancy Of James K. A. Smith's "Narrative Arc" Approach To The Fall, Logan Patriquin

The Asbury Journal

Pastors have long been under-resourced when it comes to deciphering how to craft intelligible, persuasive, and preachable sermons on some newly "settled" Christian academic position, particularly those surrounding the doctrine of the fall in light of contemporary science. The first three chapters of Genesis, along with the New Testament allusions to the edenic creation of humanity, need not inspire near the level of fear and trepidation that ministers have long associated with the public proclamation of human origins. We will examine a new resource in this discussion by James K. A. Smith, make a modification, and then test it in ...

Growing Up In America's Segregated South: Reminiscences And Regrets, Mark R. Elliott Jan 2019

Growing Up In America's Segregated South: Reminiscences And Regrets, Mark R. Elliott

The Asbury Journal

In this personal essay, originally given as an address delivered at the Sakharov Center, a human rights NGO in Moscow, Russia, on June 2, 2017, the author contemplates a lifetime of experience in the Southern United States and the prejudices and racism that he saw during that time. He relates these experiences to similar issues in Russia today, adding a Christian plea for equality and fair treatment for all people by the Christian community, and also calling on the Church to stand in opposition to racism and anti-Semitism wherever it appears.
