Trinity Guide to the Christian Church Summary

Trinity Guide to the Christian Church by William J. La Due

The forms and shapes of the Christian churches in the last millennia have indeed been varied. La Due applies the scheme he applied to Jesus, the Trinity, and eschatology to the Church in this new historical overview of ecclesiology. He opens with a short description of the various models of the church found in the New Testament and follows that up with a review of what early Christian theologians such as Augustine had to say about the Church. La Due proceeds to examine the medieval papcy and the impetus it had for the Protestant Reformation, and he analyzes the ideas about the church held by Martin Luther, John Calvin, and the English Reformation. He then moves into the nineteenth century and twentieth centuries, offering overviews of theologians including Schleiermacher, Tillich, Hans Kung, Karl Rahner, Jurgen Moltmann, and Rosemary Ruether.

Trinity Guide to the Christian Church Reviews

"In this remarkably non-judgmental study, William LaDue crosses the borders separating the various expressions of Christianity both historically and in present contexts. His approach is to let the sources and the commentators speak for themselves. The result suggests that that the diversity of styles and expressions of Christian faith may be more a gift of the Holy Spirit than an obstacle. A marvelous source book for anyone interested in ecumenism." -- Robert McClory, author of Faithful Dissenters: Stories of Men and Women Who Loved and Changed the Church
