Argues that there is no more urgent task in the church than to reflect on and engage in living truthfully with others before God. This book deals with theology both as a scientia that is postpropositional, postfoundational, and plural, and as a sapientia that is phronetic, prosaic, and prophetic.

Description

Details

Observing a strange disappearance of doctrine within the church, Kevin Vanhoozer argues that there is no more urgent task for Christians today than to engage in living truthfully with others before God. He details how doctrine serves the church--the theater of the gospel--by directing individuals and congregations to participate in the drama of what God is doing to renew all things in Jesus Christ. Taking his cue from George Lindbeck and others who locate the criteria of Christian identity in Spirit-led church practices, Vanhoozer relocates the norm for Christian doctrine in the canonical practices, which, he argues, both provoke and preserve the integrity of the church's witness as prophetic and apostolic.
