The Transformative Church : New Ecclesial Models and the Theology of Jurgen Moltmann, Paperback / softback Book

The Transformative Church : New Ecclesial Models and the Theology of Jurgen Moltmann Paperback / softback

Part of the Emerging Scholars series


Moltmann has been interested in the ecclesial and societal consequences of systematic theology.

From his first major work, Theology of Hope, to his book Experiences in Theology, he has devoted substantive space to what each particular doctrine means for our life in this world, as individuals and as a community.

The Transformative Church explores these concerns more deeply, looking at each of his major texts and highlighting themes relevant for a transformative ecclesiology.

These themes are augmented by adding the perspectives of a contemporary church movement that reflects, in its practices, many of the same concerns.

With these conversation partners, Patrick Oden constructs a more substantive transformative ecclesiology, one that is embedded in this world: we are to become in the church who we are to be in this world, becoming whole in Christ to be a messianic people in any context.
