Reviews - What do customers think about A Hard Saying: The Gospel and Culture (Scripture)?
How the living voice of the Gospel is allowed to be heard Sep 12, 2001
In "A Hard Saying": The Gospel And Culture, Francis J. Moloney (professor of New Testament at The Catholic University of America) carefully examines how the Christian Churches inevitably domesticate the message of the Gospel as they shape their own cultures and how the Gospel always acts as a "thorn in the sid" to such domestication. Moloney surveys the gospel message impact on such issues within the Christian community as the role of women, discipleship, marriage, celibacy, literary criticism, the Eucharist, health care, resurrection, and the Spirit -- and how the living voice of the Gospel is allowed to be heard. "A Hard Saying" is very highly recommended to students of theology, as well as contemporary Christian life and thought as reflected in the issues of our day.
