Professor of Biblical and Practical Theology, Gary Tyra has recently presented the paper, “Pneumatologiccal Realism: The Importance of Phenomenal/Responsive Relationship with Christ’s Spirit to a Spiritual, Moral and Missional Faithfulness” with the Tyndale Fellowship: Christian Doctrine Study Group (Cambridge, UK).
He also published a book called, “Pursuing Moral Faithfulness: Ethics and Christian Discipleship” (IVP Academic, 2015). The book synopsis: Christianity is in a state of moral crisis. Even though people make moral decisions every day, many Christians lack both the ability to evaluate these decisions and a community of discipleship to help inspire a morally faithful life. Compared to the people around them, there is often no discernible difference in how Christians go about making moral choices. As a biblical and practical theologian with three decades of pastoral experience, who has also spent years teaching ethics to undergraduates, Gary Tyra approaches the topic with the practical goal of facilitating moral formation and encouraging an “everyday” moral faithfulness. Tyra argues that Christians can have confidence in their Christ-centered, Spirit-enabled ability to discern and do the will of God in any moral situation. Moral faithfulness follows from a life of Christian discipleship. In an age of moral apathy and theological confusion, Pursuing Moral Faithfulness is a breath of fresh air and a sign of hope for the future.
