Product Description

Binding and loosing; Baptism; Eucharist; A multiplicity of gifts; and Open meeting. These five New Testament practices were central in the life of the early Christian community. Some of them are still echoed in the practice of the church today. But the full social, ethical, and communal meaning of the original practices has often been covered over by centuries of ritual and interpretation. John Howard Yoder uncovers the original meaning of the five practices, and shows why the recovery of these practices is so important for the social, economic, and political witness of the church today.
