:"Tradition is the living faith of the dead." ?Jaroslav Pelikan The movement to retrieve the Christian past is a mode of theological discernment, a cultivated habit of thought. It views the doctrines, practices and resonant realities of the Christian tradition as deep wells for a thirsty age. This movement across the church looks back in order to move forward.David Buschart and Kent Eilers survey this varied movement and identify six areas where the impulse and practice of retrieval has been notably fruitful and suggestive: the interpretation of Scripture, the articulation of theology, the practices of worship, the disciplines of spirituality, the modes of mission and the participatory ontology of Radical Orthodoxy. In each area they offer a wide-angle view before taking a close look at representative examples in order to give finer texture to the discussion. More than a survey and mapping of the terrain, Retrieving the Christian Past inspires reflection, practice and hope.
Rev. Dr. Kent Eilers earned his PhD from King's College, Aberdeen and is Assistant Professor of Theology at Huntington University, USA.
W. David Buschart (Ph.D., Drew University) is associate dean and professor of theology and historical studies at Denver Seminary. He is also the founder of Credo Consulting, a theological consulting firm. He is the author of Exploring Protestant Traditions.
