The Doctrine of the Spirituality of the Church in the Ecclesiology of Charles Hodge

Product Description

During the nineteenth century, the church in the United States wrested with how to respond to that era’s major social, political, and ethical issues—slavery and the Civil War and its aftermath. Should the church’s role be only to evangelize society, or should she also speak prophetically? Alan D. Strange brilliantly shows how Charles Hodge defended a view of the spirituality of the church that permitted it to maintain a witness to its culture while not being overwhelmed by the politics of the day. Hodge’s nuanced understanding of the church’s spirituality is as profoundly fresh and relevant now as it was then.

Publisher's Description

Charles Hodge (1797–1878) was arguably the leading Old School Presbyterian of the nineteenth century. He was involved with all the great ecclesiastical controversies of his day, including the question of the spirituality of the church. In Hodge's hands the spirituality of the church functioned as a complex and subtle doctrine, not serving, as it did with some, as a “muzzle” for the prophetic voice of the church into society, but as a means of keeping its ecclesiastical focus from being swallowed by the political. For Hodge, the spirituality of the church meant that the primary calling of the church was not, first of all, temporal but spiritual, especially in its carrying out the Great Commission. Hodge believed, however, that even in carrying out its essentially spiritual duties, the scope of the church's concern was broader temporally than some partisans of the spirituality of the church constructed it.
