This reissue of Archbishop Ramsey's classic theological study of Anglican views of the church is important for students of ecumenism, and for those concerned with the relationship between Christ and the church in the New Testament.

Although some of the book is dated, its conviction that »the church's meaning lies in its fulfillment of the sufferings of Christ» and that »every part of its history is intelligible in terms of the Passion» remains perceptive and challenging.

Examining Scripture, doctrine, and history, Ramsey paints an intricate portrait of the church as an example of Christ's death and resurrection.

He explores Eastern orthodox doctrine; explains the purposes and preconditions of the Reformation; and calls for a renewal of liturgical worship and reconciliation within the communion of the saints.

Originally published in 1936 while he was serving as sub-warden of Lincoln Theological College, this was Ramsey's first book.

After more than seventy years, its wisdom concerning the relationship between Catholic and Evangelical, and the underlying complementarities and tensions which characterize the Anglican tradition, remains theologically sound and biblically astute. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
