Product Description

Taking sharp issue with Lindbeck's The Nature of Doctrine, Vanhoozer insists that doctrine originates outside of ourselves in the very words of Scripture itself. It is therefore the Christian's vocation to discern and play one's role in the drama of redemption with "creative fidelity." 488 pages, softcover. Westminster/John Knox.

Publisher's Description

Observing a strange disappearance of doctrine within the church, Kevin Vanhoozer argues that there is no more urgent task for Christians today than to engage in living truthfully with others before God. He details how doctrine serves the church--the theater of the gospel--by directing individuals and congregations to participate in the drama of what God is doing to renew all things in Jesus Christ. Taking his cue from George Lindbeck and others who locate the criteria of Christian identity in Spirit-led church practices, Vanhoozer relocates the norm for Christian doctrine in the canonical practices, which, he argues, both provoke and preserve the integrity of the church's witness as prophetic and apostolic.
