P.H. Brazier, ‘C.S. Lewis, praeparatio evangelica: a Catholic Evangelical, Defined by Method, Technique, and Form.’

KEY WORDS
||  Evangelical ||  Catholic ||  regula fidei ||  Theological Method ||  Mission ||
||  analogia entis-analogia fidei ||

ABSTRACT
C.S. Lewis was at one and the same time intensely Evangelical and intensely Catholic. The method, technique, and form of his work was likewise Catholic-Evangelical: his method was defined by the Christ event, derived from the Patristic theologian Vincentius of Lérins (the Scripture imbued authority of the Church, ‘what has been held always, everywhere, by everybody’) and the Puritan Richard Baxter (from whom he acknowledges the term ‘mere Christian’—a sheer core to the faith, merus). This paper demonstrates a thread of systematic ground and continuity to Lewis’s writings: a content-led bipartite method and bipartite technique, unified by a universal Platonic principle, realized through the form of the analogia entis-analogia fidei—derived from the Catholic and Puritan traditions, but Evangelical in mission. Lewis’s theological and philosophical writings frame a Christian Weltanschauung : ‘the Creation, the fall, the Incarnation, the Resurrection, the Second Coming, and the Four Last Things.’ Therefore he defines his work as praeparatio evangelica: preparation for the Holy Spirit. In this he is neither an Enlightenment-led modernist, nor a disparate and relativistic liberal Postmodernist, but an orthodox theologian-philosopher in the Patristic tradition, grounding his writings in Scripture. Lewis could therefore be described as a Catholic-Evangelical.

Article
Andy Wier ‘Living With Tension: Towards A Practical Charismatic-Evangelical Urban Social Ethic.’

KEY WORDS
||  Christian Social Ethics ||  Urban Theology ||  Charismatic-Evangelical Churches ||
||  Practical Theology ||  Faith-Based Social Action ||  Creative Tension ||

ABSTRACT
This article attempts to articulate a theological response to some of the tensions that UK charismatic-evangelical churches experience when engaging with socially and economically disadvantaged urban areas. The working title of this model is a practical charismatic-evangelical urban social ethic. Developed by a practical theologian in response to the findings of a recent qualitative study, this model tries to root charismatic-evangelical urban practice in a wider social ethic which is both consistent with evangelical convictions and open to insights from other Christian traditions. The proposed practical charismatic-evangelical urban social ethic consists of six conceptual components. Each of these responds to a tension that has been encountered and observed within contemporary charismatic-evangelical urban practice. The article outlines each conceptual component in turn and then goes on to assess the evangelical credentials of this model. It is acknowledged that the practical charismatic-evangelical urban social ethic presented here does not provide a finalised or definitive model. Instead, it is shared as an outline sketch intended to provoke further evangelical reflection on the subject of living with tension.

Article
David Cowan, ‘Capitalism and Its Discontents: A Response to the Voices of Theological and Moral Animus.

KEY WORDS
||  Capitalism ||  Market Economy ||  Consumerism ||  Consumption ||  Poverty ||

ABSTRACT
In this essay, I will critique the animus of theologians towards Capitalism and the market economy, in which much of the theological literature on the market economy and consumerism link profit, greed and excess to poverty, using poverty as a moral “gotcha” to kill off any debate as to whether the market economy is morally defensible. I offer this essay as a call to engage realistically
