Product Description

The bold thesis of Canonical Theism is that the good and life-giving Holy Spirit has equipped the church not only with a canon of scripture but also with an abundant canonical heritage of materials, persons, and practices. However, much of the latter has been ignored or cast aside. The authors call for the retrieval and redeployment of the full range of this rich legacy. Voices from across the spectrum here chart and defend that mine of opportunity and invite the entire church to explore the benefits of their discoveries.

Ambitious in its scope and agenda, Canonical Theism offers insights that will enable the readers to discover anew the faith that has nourished converts, created saints, and upheld martyrs across the years.

Publisher's Description

Canonical Theism is a post-Protestant vision for the renewal of both theology and church. The editors call for the retrieval and redeployment of the full range of materials, persons, and practices that make up the canonical heritage of the church, including scripture, doctrine, sacred image, saints, sacraments, and more.

The central thesis of the work is that the good and life-giving Holy Spirit has equipped the church with not only a canon of scripture but also with a rich canonical heritage of materials, persons, and practices. However, much of the latter has been ignored or cast aside. This unplumbed resource of canonical heritage waits for the church to rediscover its wealth. With a bold set of thirty theses, the authors chart and defend that mine of opportunity. They then invite the entire church to explore the benefits of their discoveries.

This ambitious book offers insights to be integrated into the church body, renewing the faith that nourished converts, created saints, and upheld martyrs across the years.

Endorsements

"Serious systematic theology in North America is showing vitality and energy but little unity of vision. Among the many various theological movements we must now add a fascinating and creative minority voice: canonical theism. After meeting together for several years, William Abraham and several like-minded theologians have put together this programmatic collection that covers many of the central themes of Christian doctrine. . . . By grounding theology at the center of classic Christianity, these authors provide a rich feast for theologians of all types to read, ponder, and critique. The way forward for theology in the twenty-first century is not to abandon the great tradition of the church but to creatively engage it. This book helps us do just that." -Alan G. Padgett, Luther Seminary
