Baptists and the Communion of Saints: A Theology of Covenanted Disciples

Product Description

Baptists and the Communion of Saints fuses the Church's traditional doctrine of the Communion of Saints and Baptists' theology of salvation and discipleship—charting how Baptists can speak of a communion of saints here and now. Paul Fiddes and his coauthors emphasize that this communion is only possible within the fellowship of the triune God who covenants with and for believers.

Reframing communion within a theology of covenant enables the affirmation of the practice of prayer and mutual support with all faithful disciples, both alive and dead. Such a covenantal understanding of communion avoids an unhealthy obsession with communication with those who have died. Baptists and the Communion of Saints thus makes a significant and practical difference in the way Baptists understand the nature of the church, prepare their worship, care for the dying and the bereaved, go on spiritual journeys, and celebrate baptism and the Lord's Supper.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an exceptionally well-written, many-sourced, imaginative and theologically generous book. If written primarily with fellow-Baptists in mind, it nevertheless deserves a much wider and ecumenical readership. Thinkers of every tradition will learn from it."

—Keith Clements, Ecclesiology

"This is a richly simulating book, born of conversation and shared theologising by three Baptist theologians of whom we should be justly proud. It explores an area of doctrine where these three do no fear to tread, even if angels might be cautious, and unfolds for us dimensions of the reality of the purposes and breadth of God that we, as Baptists, have ignored to our impoverishing and disabling.”

—Paul Goodliff, Baptist Quarterly

“Baptists and the Communion of Saints is a feast to relish. Not only does it offer substantive and convincing proposals for a properly Baptist approach to this issue, it is a sterling example of constructive theology.”

—Dan R. Stiver, Cook-Derrick Professor of Theology, Logsdon School of Theology, Hardin-Simmons University

“An important and timely book on one of the most neglected articles of the Apostles' Creed, Baptists and the Communion of Saints explores what it means for believers to share together life in Christ in this world—and the next—along the boundaries of space and time that both separate and unite the church militant, triumphant, and vigilant.”

—Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University and Chair, Doctrine and Christian Unity Commission, Baptist World Alliance
