How should Christians live in what is still an affluent society? What should be their attitude to money and to possessions ? How far has the welfare state relieved the church of its obligations ? Is anything short of a complete renunciation of possessions a compromise with Christian teaching ? While the experience of the early church cannot be applied directly to our modern situation, it is by no means irrelevant to these questions. In a brief and lucid study, Professor Hengel looks at the views of property and riches to be found in the teaching of Jesus, the early church and Christian fathers down to the fourth century. He compares Christian ideals with those to be found in Judaism and ancient philosophy, and sets what was taught alongside what was achieved in practice. A final chapter summarizes the relevance his book might have to Christianity today, and an annotated reading list indicates how further study might be carried on. Martin Hengel, author of the monumental Judaism and Hellenism, was Professor of New Testament and Early Judaism in the University of Tuebingen.

Product Description: The question: "Will East and West ever meet?" (Rudyard Kipling) is no longer rhetorical. East and West have met and are trying to live together in our cities. However, living together is accompanied by much tension. Can we talk about a cold war being fought against Islam? Do these conflicts find ground in religious beliefs and is the Christian West confronting the Muslim East? Will the Third World War be fought between believers and unbelievers? Is islamic anger caused by religious beliefs? Can we find a means to overcome islamophobia on the one hand, the demonization of the West on the other hand? This book tries to tackle these questions by pointing out that precisely the most unique features of cities like Amsterdam originated out of and in fact still do lie in the interaction between different cultures...read more
