Reclaiming faith: essays on orthodoxy in the Episcopal Church and the Baltimore declaration
Ephraim Radner & George Sumner
The essays in this volume together commend the usefulness of traditional Christian language and doctrine for articulating the gospel today.
Taking as their point of departure the Baltimore Declaration, a manifesto made by a group of Episcopal priests in 1991; the "post-liberal" theologians contributing to this book explore such issues as the exclusivity of salvation in Christ, the proper limit to doctrinal reformulation, the authoritative forms of biblical language, and the nature of the church community as a confessing body of Christians.
These essays commend the usefulness of traditional Christian language and doctrine for articulating the gospel today, and are pertinent to many mainline Protestant denominations and to the Roman Catholic Church--indeed to all churches struggling with current revisionary challenges to traditional doctrine.
