9781842273869: Evangelicals and Tradition: The Formative Influences of the Early Church (Deep Church)

The past few years have seen a growing interest among evangelical leaders in the thought and life of the early Christian church. There is a desire to rediscover historical roots in the face of today's postmodern and increasingly post-denominational world.

Evangelicals and Tradition is the first in a valuable new series of books edited by D. H. Williams. The series seeks to help today's church leaders recover the early church fathers' ancient understandings of Christian belief and practice for application to ministry in the twenty-first century. This first book traces the development and role of tradition in the early church, what kind of authority should be ascribed to tradition, and tradition's interaction with the Protestant hallmarks of "Scripture alone" and "by faith alone."

Book Description Paternoster Press, 2005. Softbound. Book Condition: NEW. 176pp The second volume in 'Deep Church' addresses tradition and authority in the Early Church and its implications for evangelicalism.The 'Deep Church' series is about retrieving from the Church's past as we look to the Church's future. This volume lays some groundwork for the series by examining the concept of tradition - its definition, origin and components.Williams addresses tradition and authority in the Early Church and discusses the relationship between tradition and the Protestant 'traditions' of sola scriptura and sola fide. Finally, he examines examples of how tradition was used in the early church, including confessions of faith, catecheses, The Rule of Faith, commentaries, theological hymnody and theological works."Williams has brought a new sense of engagement to the ancient task of relating Scripture, tradition, and spiritual experience. This book roots us in the living faith of every age and should be welcomed by everyone who wants to grow in the knowledge and love of Christ."- Gerald Bray, Anglican Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University.- Publisher.
