As the Catholic Church emerges as a truly global church, Catholic universities have an essential role to play in its mission in ...

Robert Pinkerton: Principal Agent Of The Bfbs In The Kingdoms Of Germany, Wayne A. Detzler

History Faculty Publications

According to Lord Teignmouth, who served as the first president of the British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS), Robert Pinkerton (1780-1859) was the "most diligent of all the Society's agents."

This paper seeks to build upon such interest in Pinkerton's work and observations, dividing his Bible Society career into four phases: The Russian Years; His Hopes for War-Torn Europe; Surviving the Apocrypha Crisis; and Pinkerton's New Path in Frankfurt.

The Problem Of Religion, Violence, And Peace: An Uneasy Trilogy, David L. Coppola Jan 2000

The Problem Of Religion, Violence, And Peace: An Uneasy Trilogy, David L. Coppola

SHU Faculty Publications

Drawing primarily on Jewish, Christian, and Islamic texts, as well as on philosophical and sociological concepts, I will examine religion and its relationship to violence from three distinct, but related perspectives; namely, that 1) religion is directly linked with violence; 2) religion functions as one among many factors that influence violence; and 3) religions are unwilling participants in the practice of violence. This essay begins by setting a context for the study of religion, violence, and peace, followed by a presentation of the three perspectives mentioned above, concluding with possibilities for the study and practice of future peace-making.

Evangelism In A Pluralistic Society, Wayne A. Detzler

How do we evangelize a pluralistic society? We proclaim the name of Jesus Christ. To a multitude starved for truth, we offer the truth of God's inerrant Word. For millions mired down in sin, we offer a Saviour who can snatch them out. Amid the confusion and conflict we call people to meet at the Cross of the lord Jesus Christ, and He draws all.
