The Priesthood of Christ

The Priesthood of Christ
Atonement in the Theology of John Owen (1616 – 1683)

Author : Edwin E.M. Tay

Pages: 207

Weight: 325g

Publication year: 2014

ISBN 978-1-84227-7997

Book Description:

Despite wide acclaim for John Owen (1616-1683) as a leading representative of the doctrine of atonement in the Reformed tradition, a thorough examination of his views on the subject has yet to be undertaken. This work is the first full-scale monograph on the subject. Drawing on recent historiographical studies on the intellectual history of Protestant Orthodoxy and the full range of Owen’s writings, Dr Tay demonstrates that at the heart of Owen’s atonement theology is his peculiar understanding of Christ’s priesthood conceived in terms of the oblation and intercession of Christ, performed in the states of humiliation and exaltation.

This book belongs to the monograph series Studies in Christian History and Thought by Paternoster Press.

No. 7 – What Young Asian Theologians Are Thinking

What Young Asian Theologians Are Thinking

Editor: Leow Theng Huat


It is not always easy to discover exactly what young Asian theologians are thinking (to paraphrase Douglas J. Elwood). Overwhelmed with commitments, young theologians find it difficult to pursue their research interests. This book is the result of an invitation to a few young theologians to pause and reflect upon the key theological issues they are concerned with in their respective contexts.

The nine articles cover a broad range of topics. The first section (“Text and Context”) focus on specific portions of the Biblical text and how they speak to various parts of Asia. The second, entitled “Theology in Context”, propose ways of meaningfully engaging the Christian faith with the contributors’ own contexts in China, Hong Kong and Thailand. The final three articles “On Terminology and Methodology” deal with basic issues of how we should explicate key concepts and undertake the theological task. The last portion contains three responses from senior scholars.

No. 12 – 落地生根?中国移民与新加坡教会


Author: 罗翠璧

Editor: 刘淑平

Pages: 34

Publication year: 2014

ISBN 13: 978-981-09-0869-0


中国移民与新加坡教会的课题,对于许多本地教会来说,可说是个“烫手的山芋”。 因为两者之间的张力、冲击与误会是必然存在的。因此许多教会的中国人事工都碰到了困难。

罗翠璧在三一神学院修读课程时,选择以中国人所创办的以马内利基督教会为研究课题。她的专文将她与以马内利创办人王祎牧师的访谈,特别针对教会的历史、身份定位与文化互动三方面做出具体的分析,并提出一个重要的问题:“不少本地教会都有华文崇拜,并有专门服事中国移民或学生的事工,为什么中国人要自己开一间教会?”两位本地牧者、三位中国移民牧者,以及一位三一神学院讲师,亦受邀撰写回应文章。希望这些对话能激发教会间自由的交流与合作,将福音广传。– 刘淑平

No. 3 – Iban Anglicans: The Anglican Mission in Sarawak 1848-1968

Iban Anglicans: The Anglican Mission in Sarawak 1848-1968

Author: Peter Varney

Series Editor: John Roxborogh

Pages: xvi + 252

Publication Year: 2013

ISBN 13: 978-981-07-4141-9


This book tells a fascinating story of encounter between Christianity and the Iban of Sarawak, who are now one of the most Christianised peoples in Asia. Peter Varney meticulously charts Iban responses to Christianity during Brooke and colonial rule from 1848 to 1968 showing how local catechists and teachers played a central role in bringing Christianity to their own people. The story of how faith and culture engage each other will be of huge interest to Southeast Asian Christians, and to academics in historical and social science disciplines.

About the Author

The Revd. Peter Varney is a fellow of the Borneo Research Council, chairman of the Borneo Mission Association and a research associate in the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia. His interest in the Iban began in 1958 when he was posted to Borneo during Royal Air Force National Service. In 1967 he began field work at Betong, focussing on Anglican work with the Iban, and visiting all the Anglican parishes in Sarawak. His recent research on Iban Anglicans examines burial rites and eschatological beliefs in urban Kuching, including issues of religious accommodation, urbanisation and globalisation.

When Francis McDougall became the first Christian missionary in Sarawak, he could not have envisaged what is now the vibrant Anglican Diocese of Kuching within the Province of South East Asia. This fascinating history reminds us of the need for faithfulness and patience, charts the sometimes uneasy relationship between the church and the colonial powers, and records the sensitivity with which many missionaries sought to understand local spiritualities and rituals.  – Bishop Michael Doe, General Secretary USPG, 2004 – 2011

It is always refreshing to read an outsider’s view of a community and its history. This book is therefore something that can be appreciated by Iban people as well as by others. The past decades of mission among the Iban people are brought into sharp focus by Peter’s careful research and his style of presentation. There is something to learn from its pages even for those most closely involved in the work.

The Diocese has always been keen to assist where it can in research and I am very pleased with the result. It describes the long procession of God’s servants who have been faithful in this part of His vineyard to which we in our generation now belong. An important aspect is how the church’s contribution to the political and economic life in Sarawak is woven into the story of conversion. Descriptions of the formidable problems of the past being overcome with tenacity and faith can only be an inspiration and hope for facing the difficulties of the present day.

I commend this book to anyone anywhere who is involved in mission – or even simply wondering how it works.  – Datuk Bolly anak Labok, Bishop of Kuching and Archbishop of the Province of the Anglican Church in South East Asia
