The New Churchs Teaching series has been one of the most recognizable and useful sets of books in the Episcopal Church. With the launch of the Churchs Teachings for a Changing World series, visionary Episcopal thinkers and leaders have teamed up to write a new set of books, grounded and thoughtful enough for seminarians and leaders, concise and accessible enough for newcomers, with a host of discussion resources that help readers to dig deep.
This third volume introduces Episcopal theology with the question "Can you capture the good news of Jesus Christ in a tweet?" Author Jesse Zink thinks so: You are loved with a love unlike anything elsenow, go show that love to others. Huge oceans of meaning lie under each word, and his new book welcomes readers into those depths.
Each chapter takes a different aspect of Christian faithGod, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Creation and Humanity, Baptism, Church, Eucharist, Mission, and the Hope of the World to Comeand links history and tradition with real world experience.
