Product Description

"Traditioning" refers to the whole process by which the Christian faith is passed along from generation to generation. At the core of this faith lies the claim that God has begun to transform the world by way of universal compassion as demonstrated in the life and message of the Jewish peasant who stands at the dawn of Christianity. But was Jesus right? Many Christians have literally bet their lives on it.

As Orlando Espin shows, the primary role in the process of Christian traditioning is not played by the custodians of doctrine. Espmn looks instead to the role of those on the margins, the "disposables" as those most alert to the subversive hope of the Gospels, and thus as faithful "traditioners" of the Christian message.
