Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: As a theme for serious and sustained treatment, church and society tends to be regarded as a subject from a bygone age. This reflects the way in which our cultural, social and political situation has changed over the last fifty years, during which it has become increasingly difficult (and has increasingly appeared to be redundant) to relate church and God-talk to society.One of the most marked shifts during this period has been the virtually complete secularisation of culture, at least in its public spheres, and the consequent marginalization of the church, of God and of God-talk. Hence it is not now clear whether the church can legitimately and effectively claim public space and communicate in a radically secular society.However, instead of a sense of crisis, there is complacency within the churches about the present and future status and contribution of the church to national life (evident in both sides of the debate concerning Establishment). In addition, there is no clear understanding among the churches either of what their relationship to society might properly be or even of what society is or might be.Put theologically, this crisis is about whether it is possible any longer to have a public theology: one which is socially and confessionally responsible, which has theological integrity in responding to and addressing society. Put in more ecclesiastical terms, it concerns the possibility of being church in and for society.This series is envisaged as an opportunity for contributors to discuss concrete issues, attending seriously to specific historical, cultural, political and ecclesiastical dynamics. It is hoped that discussion of the particular will be framed in such away as to invite comparisons which will illuminate other situations too.The series invites authors to write against the background of this crisis and to ask what the church might have to say to the next generation. We are. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: This is the second book in the new SCM ""Society and Church"" series, which attempts to make sense of the Church and Christianity in a secular society and context, and explore what the former can legitimately contribute to the latter. How do we make sense of who and what we are in this secular, 21st century context of incredible - and often disorienting - change in so many areas of life? That is the central question which this book sets out to answer. At present, in our society, there are major, rapid and interconnected changes in information technology, globalization, work and employment practices, consumerism, and family, all of which have a pressing bearing on our sense of self. How may we best live through this process of change, and does Christian faith propose a mode of living which can be beneficial to personal identity? In answering these two questions, the latter affirmatively, the author develops a theology of faithfulness, which he thinks, like theology itself, has been unjustly neglected in providing answers. White enables theology to speak to a central issue of contemporary life with considerable power and persuasiveness.
L'autore: Vernon White is Director of the Southern Theological Education & Training Scheme, based in Salisbury. He is the author of three previous, and highly regarded, books: "The Fall of a Sparrow", "Atonement and Incarnation" and "Paying Attention to People".
