"Wolfgang Vondey contends that the story of the church is a story of "the people of bread." The image of bread is one of the richest and, at the same time, one of the most neglected biblical images that speak to an ecumenical understanding of the church. Drawing from scripture, from writers of the early church, and from cutting-edge debates in contemporary scholarship, Vondey unfolds the social, moral, missiological, ecumenical, and eschatological dimensions of the church, based on the story of bread that far exceeds a eucharistic interpretation. People of Bread speaks to a growing interest in an understanding of the church by addressing the widespread revival of the theological imagination."--BOOK JACKET.
Introduces the reader to the social, moral, missiological, sacramental, ecumenical, and eschatological dimensions of the Church through the biblical story of bread.
