The Bond of Peace: Exploring generous orthodoxy

Available

Description

Churches vary a great deal - but can we see past all their differences to what underlies them?

'Generous orthodoxy' is a phrase that describes a Christianity both broad and deep, rooted in the historic creeds and embracing different expressions of Christian faith. Exploring Generous Orthodoxy is a ground-breaking, creative and practical exploration of what that really means, and how expressing it might bring about a sense of unity in the church that is badly needed in our fractured and polarised world.

Drawing together leading theologians from the UK and the USA - including David Ford, Katherine Sonderegger, Willie Jennings, Tom Greggs, JKA Smith and Jane Williams - this collection of reflections explores how generous orthodoxy can be expressed through everything from worship and preaching to biblical theology, the arts and more.

Based around a series of lectures held at St Mellitus College, and sponsored by the McDonald Agape Foundation, Exploring Generous Orthodoxy is essential reading for anyone interested in how the Christian Church can bridge the gap between denominations to negotiate the challenges of our 21st century world in a united manner. It will leave you, not only with a deeper understanding of generous orthodoxy, but the practical confidence to celebrate and embrace the differences in Christian denominations so we can all live together more joyfully - through the transforming and renewing work of the Holy Spirit.
