Sacra Doctrina: After Our Likeness (Sacra Doctrina: Christian Theology For A Post Modern Age Series)

Sacra Doctrina: After Our Likeness (Sacra Doctrina: Christian Theology For A Post Modern Age Series)

$46.99

Paperback
This inaugural volume in the Sacra Doctrina series explores the relationship between persons and community in Christian theology. The focus is the community of grace, the Christian church. The point of departure is the thought of the first Baptist, John Smyth, and the notion of church as "gathered community" that he shared with Radical Reformers. Miroslav Volf seeks to counter the tendencies toward individualism in Protestant ecclesiology and to suggest a viable understanding of the church in which both person and community are given their proper due. In the process, Volf engages in a sustained and critical ecumenical dialogue with the Catholic and Orthodox ecclesiologies of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger and the metropolitan John Zizioulas. The result is a brilliant ecumenical study that spells out a vision of the church as an image of the triune God.
