Miroslav Volf Ð 9 Free download review Ê E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ð Miroslav Volf Read Free of Charge Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace Volf draws from popular culture as well as from a wealth of literary and theological sources weaving his rich reflections around the sturdy frame of Paul's vision of God's grace and Martin Luther s interpretation of that vision Blending the best of theology and spirituality he encourages us to echo in our own lives God's generous giving and forgiving A fresh examination of two practices at the heart of the Christian faith giving and forgiving the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lenten st. Short Review Best books I have read on forgiveness and a very good look at what giving is all about In someways it felt like two short books tacked together I know that in Volf s mind they are very intimately connected but I don t think he uite showed the connection well enough Regardless Volf starts with a look at who God and and what God gives to us The first chapter really sets the stage for the sections on both giving and forgiveness The giving sections were good giving is a response to God s grace to us It is not an obligation and God does not need us to give God does not gain anything from our giving because God is complete by himself But God wants us to give and so we are encouraged to give out of appreciate of what God has done for us and how God will use us in the lives of others He contrasts the way that many people thing of God Santa Claus or Negotiator God does not give without regard to what is good for us and God does not give in response to negotiation because God does not need anything from us In a similar way Volf looks at forgiveness as a subsection of giving He takes a slight variation on the view of God Judge and Doting grandparent and says that does not demand perfect justice nor does he turn a blind eye to the reality of our sin The only way he can reconcile our need for forgiveness and God s own holiness is forgiveness All forgiveness in the end is God s work but God gives us the opportunity to participate with him in reconciling people to one another and to GodThis is not easy forgive and forget Volf is primarily thinking about the rough restorative justice here He is giving examples of war crimes rape murder and neglegence that results in death But he connects it clearly to the smaller things that we all need forgiveness forI cannot think of another book that I highlighted This is a book that I need to read again In spite of the fact that it get a bit dry in areas where he is trying to make sure of all of his bases this is an important book It took me nearly a month to work my way through with long breaks to process it but it was well worth readingMy full review is on my blog at

Miroslav Volf Ð 9 Free download review Ê E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ð Miroslav Volf Read Free of Charge Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace We are at our human best when we give and forgive But we live in a world in which it makes little sense to do either one In our increasingly graceless culture where can we find the motivation to give And how do we learn to forgive when forgiving seems counterintuitive or even futile A deeply personal yet profoundly thoughtful book Free of Charge explores these uestions and the further uestions to which they give rise in light of God's generosity and Christ's sacrifice for us Miroslav. Miroslav Volf is one of my favorite writers His book Exclusion and Embrace might be in my top ten reads of all time and his work comparing Christian and Muslim understandings of God Allah A Christian Response is fantastic So I came to this book expecting a lot and I won t say it disappointed but it was different then what I expectedExclusion and Embrace was a heavy theological work that cut to the heart of Christian faith with brilliant insights into Jesus death and how we ought to live in response to it I think Free of Charge almost works as a popular level version of Exclusion and Embrace Here Volf offers extended reflections on giving and forgiving God is the ultimate giver and forgiver and we do these actions in imitation of God More we do these actions because God is working through us Free of Charge is by no means simplistic but I definitely think it would be an easier read then Exclusion and Embrace for people who want an entry into Volf s workIt is one of those books where nothing really jumped out at me yet nearly everything was insightful Sometimes I read a book and am wowed the experience of reading grabs me At times I struggled to continue reading this book Yet often those books that wow me disappear into oblivion I see them years later sitting on my shelf and I smile as I remember our time together Books like Free of Charge are ones that did not wow me but when I am working on a sermon on Bible study I suspect I will pull off the shelf and reference freuentlyMaybe that is the best thing I can say about this book it is nothing fancy but it is a solid work I suspect any reader interested in Christian theology will appreciate Volf s reflections on giving and forgiving
