D H Williams

$16.99

Paperback
The second volume in 'Deep Church' addresses tradition and authority in the Early Church and its implications for evangelicalism.The 'Deep Church' series is about retrieving from the Church's past as we look to the Church's future. This volume lays some groundwork for the series by examining the concept of tradition - its definition, origin and components.

Williams addresses tradition and authority in the Early Church and discusses the relationship between tradition and the Protestant 'traditions' of sola scriptura and sola fide.^Finally, he examines examples of how tradition was used in the early church, including confessions of faith, catecheses, The Rule of Faith, commentaries, theological hymnody and theological works.

"Williams has brought a new sense of engagement to the ancient task of relating Scripture, tradition, and spiritual experience... This book roots us in the living faith of every age and should be welcomed by everyone who wants to grow in the knowledge and love of Christ."
- Gerald Bray, Anglican Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University.
