Lectures on the Essence of Religion

Lectures on the Essence of Religion
  • Author : Ludwig Feuerbach
  • Publisher : Wipf and Stock Publishers
  • Release : 2018-06-21
  • ISBN : 1532646232
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

This book, translated for the first time into English, presents the major statement of the philosophy of Ludwig Feuerbach. Here, in his most systematic work, Feuerbach’s thought on religion and on the philosophy of nature achieves its full maturity. Central to the thought of Feuerbach is the concept that man not God is the creator, that divinities are representations of man’s innermost feelings and ideas. Philosophy should turn from theology and speculative rationalism to sound factual anthropology. “My aim in these Lectures,” writes Feuerbach, “is to transform friends of God into friends of man, believers into thinkers, worshippers into workers, candidates for the other world into students of this world, Christians, who on their own confession are half-animal and half-angel, into men––whole men.”

The Essence of Religion
  • Author : Borden Parker Bowne
  • Publisher : Cambridge Scholars Publishing
  • Release : 2008-10-01
  • ISBN : 1443800740
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

This is a collection of Bowne’s most important sermons, some of which appeared in other collections. It covers a remarkably large number of aspects of religion and faith, and summarises well the thought and achievements of this great preacher. The topics covered range from the role of Jesus Christ in religion and in our own lives, to the activities of the church, to Christianity as a doctrine, to the ways in which we can enjoy a healthy and successful life. The book will appeal to many, from the scholar to the relative newcomer to religion. It is lucid and flows easily, yet not without giving the reader much food for thought, and a new angle on many things he has probably thought and enquired about. In the words of the author’s wife, “ ‘if,’ to use the author’s own words, ‘the great end of religion is a developed soul, a soul with a deep sense of God, a soul in which faith, courage, and resolution are at their highest,’ then the writer of these sermons had in this life entered into the fullest realisation of all he taught to others.” And most readers will probably feel this after reading a few words of the first sermon.

Discovering the Essence of Religion

Discovering the Essence of Religion
  • Author : Ellington Bakumor
  • Publisher : BookRix
  • Release : 2015-03-14
  • ISBN : 3736864566
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

There is nothing wrong with any religion until it assumes a monolithic stance, at the expense of the commonalities between all religions useful for a collective and universal outlook of all faiths. All religions can be likened to the riverbed that largely determines the color of its water even though, in essence, the water is always white. By this work, Brother Ellington is contributing greatly to breaking the atom through which the universal sound of our lifetime could be heard. That sound, spoken of beforehand, seeking the elimination of religious barriers, thus, ensuring a universal peace and harmony. IMAM MUHAMMAD HUSSAINI BAGNYA

The Essence of Christianity

The Essence of Christianity
  • Author : Bruno Forte
  • Publisher : Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
  • Release : 2003
  • ISBN : 9780802826572
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Postmodern thought has attempted to strip many traditional values and beliefs of their power, and the Christian faith is no exception. In this spiritually and intellectually wise book Bruno Forte upholds the essence -- the heart and meaning -- of Christianity despite the claims of the contemporary world. In the tradition of thinkers like Feuerbach, Harnack, and Guardini, Forte restates what is unique, reliable, and universal about Christianity for our current age. After outlining in broad terms the nature of postmodernity and its challenges to traditional faith, Forte proceeds, with the voice of one intimately in love with God, to present anew what lies at the heart of genuine Christianity and why it is still good news for women and men today. Among the many books on postmodernism, this one is distinct for its conscientious dialogue with postmodern culture and its clear proclamation of meaningful faith. It will interest everyone pondering the role of Christianity in contemporary life. Edmondo Lupieri (general editor) This new series seeks to introduce readers in the English-speaking world to people and events in Italian socio-religious history that have been pivotal to the formation and growth of Western civilization.

Religious Studies

Religious Studies
  • Author : Walter H. Capps
  • Publisher : Fortress Press
  • Release : 1995
  • ISBN : 9781451419856
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Since its inception almost 200 years ago, the study of religion has informed, enlightened, provoked, and challenged our notions of humanity's deepest beliefs and longings. Now Walter Capps, nationally recognized for the quality and depth of his teaching, has written the first full-scale introduction to the history and methods of religious studies. To assess the many points of view in this mature but diffuse discipline. Capps uses the idea that four basic of fundamental questions and three enduring interests have given formal structure to the study of religion: the essence of religion; the origin of religion, descriptions of religion; the function of religion, the language of religion, comparisons of religion and, the future of religious studies. In this way Capps relates the chief insights and theories of philosophy, anthropology, phenomenology, sociology, and theology of religion, and spotlights theorists from Immanuel Kant to Mircea Eliade. His valuable text unites in a single narrative and conceptual framework the major methodological proposals for the academic study of religion; treats all the major theorists in their respective disciplines, schools of thought, and intellectual movements; treats the whole discipline as a dynamic and evolving tradition. Religious Studies constitutes not only an erudite introduction to the field, exhibiting vast scholarship and careful assessment, but also a bold synthetic proposal for its future.
