Full Product Description
Contemporary Christianity is no less vexed about emotions. The rise of the charismatic movement in the late twentieth century, with its emphasis on experiential Christianity, has led to an equally strong reaction of suspicion against talk of the emotions as significant for the Christian life. Though these questions have an everyday, practical importance, they also point to profound theological questions about the nature of the triune God and the ascription of emotions to him in the Bible. Does God himself have feelings?
This stimulating volume, based on the 2011 Moore College School of Theology, offers perspectives on emotions. Topics include a cultural overview, theological anthropology, the question of divine passions, the emotional life of Jesus, the Spirits work in perfecting emotions, preaching the Gospels for divine effects, and the place of the emotions in corporate worship including connections with singing and music.
The contributors are Rhys Bezzant, Peter Bolt, Gerald Bray, Andrew Cameron, Keith Condie, Richard Gibson, David Höhne, Michael Jensen, David Peterson and Robert Smith.
True Feelings by edited by Michael P Jensen was published by Apollos in September 2012 and is our 54456th best seller. The ISBN for True Feelings is 9781844745937.

True FeelingsIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
The idea behind this work is most interesting. It seems that most of the faculty of Moore College School of Theology plus one or two other contributors, addressed a single topic - emotions and their application in particular fields – and produced this symposium. As might be anticipated, the results are mixed, but on the whole, well worth reading. The contribution on a "cultural overview of the emotions’" most helpfully sets the scene, and at one point looks at the great Augustine’s views on the subject, which could well open up new areas of enquiry for the reader. This 'symposium' as a whole, helps to bring emotions back from the fringe of theological discussion more towards, if not the centre, then at least the middle ground.
