Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "In this latest work, Finger brings together his decades of participation in multipartner theological dialogue with fellow Christian communities and his own Anabaptist theological heritage, introducing the two theological worlds to one another and engaging similarities, differences and potential areas of increasing convergence and mutual enhancement. If you are from outside the Anabaptist world, you will find here lively access to Anabaptist history and contemporary Anabaptist discussion on a wide variety of theological issues, ranging from baptism, the Lord's Supper, the church's discipline of the believer and economic sharing, through the person and work of Jesus, to eschatology. If you are an Anabaptist, in this book Finger has offered you a transparent theological account of all that he has been sharing and learning in your name, for the benefit of all.".

Inhaltsangabe: In this comprehensive volume Thomas N. Finger takes on the formidable task of making explicit the often implicit theology of the Anabaptist movement and then presenting, for the sake of the welfare of the whole contemporary Christian church, his own constructive theology. In the first part Finger tells the story of the development of Anabaptist thought, helping the reader grasp both the unifying and diverse elements in that theological tradition. In the second and third parts Finger considers in more detail the major themes essential to Anabaptist theology, first considering the historic views and then presenting his own constructive effort. Within the Anabaptist perspective Finger offers a theology that highlights the three dimensions of its salvific center: the communal, the personal and the missional. The themes taken up in the final part form what Finger identifies as the convictional framework of that center; namely, Christology, anthropology and eschatology. This book is a landmark contribution of Anabaptist theology for the whole church in biblical, historical and contemporary context.
