The Church Made Strange for the Nations
Essays in Ecclesiology and Political Theology
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"'Let the Church be the Church!' In early ecumenical debates, this was a guiding principle. Churches tried to define a new, critical role in society, after having failed to speak up for victims of violence and injustice. Descendents of the Radical Reformation--represented in this volume--confront us with that challenge anew. In dialogue with philosophy, history, sociology, and even the arts, a political theology for an exilic church (or exile-church) is inspired. This holds the potential to make a real difference--and renew the church's self-understanding."
