BEM at 25 - Critical Insights into a Continuing Legacy (Paperback): Thomas F. Best, Tamara Grdzelidze BEM at 25 - Critical Insights into a Continuing Legacy (Paperback)
Thomas F. Best, Tamara Grdzelidze
R483 Discovery Miles 4 830 Special order

Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (BEM) remains a seminal text for the churches and the ecumenical movement. Since its publication in 1982, this World Council of Churches Faith and Order convergence document has been translated into more than 40 languages, has remained an ecumenical best-seller, and has been the basis of many official agreements between churches. BEM at 25: Critical Insights into a Continuing Legacy - a vibrant collection of essays from a wide range of confessional and regional perspectives - explores the continuing legacy of BEM. Articles trace the influence of BEM - and the challenge it continues to pose today - in areas such as worship, ecclesiology, the churches' social witness, and local parish life. Critical questions are also raised. How far have the churches acted upon the agreements signaled in BEM? Was there full participation in the BEM process in all regions of the world? What do the churches' experiences with BEM tell us about the next stage of the ecumenical journey? BEM at 25 is an essential resource for all those interested in the history - and future - of the ecumenical movement.

One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic - Ecumenical Reflections on the Church (Paperback): Tamara Grdzelidze One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic - Ecumenical Reflections on the Church (Paperback)
Tamara Grdzelidze
R569 Discovery Miles 5 690 Special order

Stands in continuity with such ecumenical documents as Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (BEM) in examining aspects of ecclesiology, the theological understanding of the church. The chapters consist of contributions by authors from many Christian traditions to the study process culminating in the report of the dialogue, The Nature and Mission of the Church. Twenty-four theologians and church leaders provide multiple perspectives on the issues of the churchs sacramentality, authority and ordained ministry. Drawing on more than 75 years of Faith and Order conversations, especially on the principles of convergence discerned in the BEM process, the book identifies areas of agreement and challenges posed for churches as they seek common ground. This volume traces the next steps in dialogue and provides a resource to aid reception of the results as Christian communities frame their own discussions of what it means to be the church.

Sources of Authority, Volume 2 - Contemporary Churches (Paperback): Tamara Grdzelidze Sources of Authority, Volume 2 - Contemporary Churches (Paperback)
Tamara Grdzelidze
R475 Discovery Miles 4 750 Special order

The common study of the sources of authority shows that the church cannot exist without, beyond, or above authority. The church sustains the authority of God. And here comes the clash with the secular world. Discovering that sources of authority are inseparable from earthly life, Christians must learn how to bridge this clash without either rejecting the secular world or adjusting their principles to those alien to the Christian faith. The task is not easy. Studying various sources of authority of the Christian faith ecumenically helps Christians with this difficult task of bringing Christian virtues into the secular world or giving a common witness. -- from the Foreword *** The perennial and vexing question of authority lies at the root of many of the deepest divisions in and among Christian churches. Yet, how is one to understand authority itself and the many axes of Christian existence - scripture, tradition, the believing congregation, liturgy, magisterium, reason, and experience - that prove to be more or less authoritative for churches and communions in their life, their governance, and their acceptance of change? And, crucially, how are the issue and reality of authority altered in a religious tradition, such as Christianity, that claims to subvert the bald exercise of power by leaders? Volume 1 of Sources of Authority ISBN 978 2 8254 1602 0] examined these questions historically, concentrating on the early church. Now, ranging across the confessional traditions, Volume 2 turns to the contemporary churches themselves and asks theologians to reflect critically on and elaborate on the most authoritative aspects of their own ecclesial traditions that, in the end, bind believers together.

Cloud of Witnesses - Opportunities for Ecumenical Commemoration (Paperback): Tamara Grdzelidze, Guido Dotti Cloud of Witnesses - Opportunities for Ecumenical Commemoration (Paperback)
Tamara Grdzelidze, Guido Dotti
R689 Discovery Miles 6 890 Special order

Commemorating the martyrdom and witness of Christians, both past and present, is a vital yet untapped source of Christian self-understanding and courage for the future. A Cloud of Witnesses reflects on the growing awareness that contemporary and historical witnesses to the Christian faith not only belong to individual confessional groups, but are also a source of inspiration for all the churches. What is the meaning of this legacy and of faithful commemoration of this common heritage? How can it help to unite Christians today? As a rich resource featuring the work of more than two dozen theologians and historians, the book surveys the understanding of "witnesses" in Lutheran, Catholic, Orthodox, and Pentecostal traditions. It then circles the globe to analyze martyrdom in specific settings - from South Africa to Russia to Latin America - and offers specific suggestions for theological and liturgical commemoration. Whether they were the martyrs under the Nazi regime, Roman Catholic sisters slain in El Salvador, or the nameless thousands of Christian martyrs in Korea, their lives and deaths bear witness to the common faith that Christians everywhere share with them, and their witness remains indispensable in contemporary times of peril.

Reading the Gospels with the Early Church - A Guide (Paperback): Tamara Grdzelidze Reading the Gospels with the Early Church - A Guide (Paperback)
Tamara Grdzelidze
R355 Discovery Miles 3 550 Special order

New refreshing insights on our understanding of the gospel in the 21st century from our ancient past - this is the surprising impact of what is captured in this small book in which the thoughts of early church figures are brought alive in a new way. -- Setri Nyomi, World Communion of Reformed Churches General Secretary *** ...we come closer to the source in their freshness and dynamic vitality....reading of the scripture is permeated by a deep sense of mystery, a delicate intuition of the divine together with a remarkable richness of human wisdom and a strong desire to discover the harmony between the word of God written in the Bible and the 'seeds of the word' scattered throughout history in the whole world. -- Sister Maria Ko, Roman Catholic member of the Faith and Order Commission *** Can we learn anything from early interpreters of the scriptures? This guide book illustrates how contemporary readers may be both enlightened and enriched by the insights of early teachers whose search for eternal truth urges us on in the continuing quest. -- Neville Callam, Baptist World Alliance General Secretary (Series: Faith and Order Paper - No. 213)

Sources of Authority, Volume 1 - The Early Church (Paperback): Tamara Grdzelidze Sources of Authority, Volume 1 - The Early Church (Paperback)
Tamara Grdzelidze
R471 Discovery Miles 4 710 Special order

The consultation proved to be a life-changing event, for all of us there. We all came away from it renewed in our sense that to read and to reflect on the teachers and witnesses of the early church together is to share in something of profound significance for the life of the church today. There was no lack of critical engagement with their writings, from all the participants, and there was no rosy romanticism. But there was a deep sense of participating in what is living tradition, and of hearing the voices of witnesses for Christ who were, in their time and for ours, profoundly practical and rooted theologians, living holy lives and sometimes witnessing with their dying too. -- from the Foreword *** Living and witnessing to their faith in the first centuries after the New Testament, the men and women of the early church - theologians and bishops, ascetics and martyrs - have exerted a profound influence and authority in the subsequent theological and ecclesial periods and traditions. Yet, what is their significance, authority, and pull for Christians today? Can reverence for them survive critical scrutiny? What can they teach us about the core of Christian scriptures, tradition, and ecclesial life? In this remarkable volume, scholars and theologians from a variety of confessional traditions assess the contributions, failings, and contemporary relevance of the teachers and witnesses of the early church.
