The understanding of the Eucharist as sacrament of unity is not a peripheral or accidental matter. It is not merely an addition to the truths of church dogma. Indeed, the unity of the Church is the very reason the Eucharist exists. Book jacket.

In this book Addison Hodges Hart articulates some crucial questions for contemporary Christians: What sort of church must we become in today's post-Christendom world, where we can no longer count on society to support Christian ideals? What can we salvage from our Christendom past that is of real value, and what can we properly leave behind? How do we become "strangers and pilgrims" once more, after being "at home" in Christendom for so long? Summoning readers to wise and faithful discipleship in our post-Christendom age, Hart suggests both how Christ's disciples can say "yes" to much that was preserved during the age of Christendom and why they should say "no" to some of the cherished accretions of that passing epoch.

In Visible Church?Visible Unity Ola Tj?rhom explores central questions in current ecclesiological and ecumenical debates from the perspective of an evangelical catholicity of ?the Great Tradition of the Church.? Tj?rhom shows how the fundamental visibility of the Church and the similarly visible nature of Church fellowship is a corrective cover against ?invisible? perceptions of these entities. This theme of visibility is developed in view of the sacraments, the ministries, and the mission of the Church. Visible Church?Visible Unity includes ?Chapter 1: Toward the End of the Reformation Project? The Riddle of Protestantism,? ?Chapter 2: ?The Great Tradition of the Church??An Old Way Forward?? ?Chapter 3: The Church?Mother of Faith and Priest of Creation,? ?Chapter 4: The Goal of Visible Unity?Reaffirming Our Commitment,? and ?Chapter 5: Life in the Spirit?Toward a ?Materialist? Spirituality.?? . . . an intensely personal effort, revealing above all one person?s struggle with how, and where, to live out his belief to the church.? Anglican Theology Review?Have the Reformation churches remained true to their original insights about renewal, or have the twin threats of liberalism and pietism led them to settle for a ?mere Protestantism?? Ola Tj?rhom dares not only to ask this uncomfortable question, but to suggest a concrete alternative: closer attention to the ?Great Tradition? of the Church. He accomplishes this without lapsing into nostalgia (all too common in the invocation of this concept) and in an ecumenically sensitive way. And he traces the concrete ecclesiological and sacramental consequences in a way that make this book an important study for Christians of every stripe.? David S. Cunningham Professor of Religion Hope College

The subject of baptism continues to be of considerable interest--though it frequently appears within broader studies of sacraments, liturgy, worship, and ecumenical studies, and within confessional bounds: credobaptist or paedobaptist--yet it is rarely discussed by Evangelicals. This book, however, is neither an apologetic for credobaptism nor paedobaptism; rather Cross believes that, as practiced today, both forms are a departure from New Testament baptism, which, he maintains, was an integral part of becoming a Christian and part of the proclaimed gospel. He argues that the "one baptism" of Ephesians 4:5 is conversion-baptism and that the baptism referred to in the various New Testament strata refers to this "one baptism" (of Spirit and water). The study sets out the case for this interpretation and contends that in key passages "baptism" is an example of synecdoche. The case is then made for a sacramental interpretation of baptism from a thoroughgoing Evangelical perspective. Cross concludes with reflections on the necessity of baptismal reform and the relevance of a return to conversion-baptism for the contemporary church in a post-Christian, post-Christendom, mission setting.

Fifty years ago, Dei Verbum called Catholics to reflect on the inherent unity of the "one table of the word of God and the body of Christ." Drawing from a variety of ancient and modern insights, the author proposes a fresh view of word and sacrament as interrelated facets of God's one enduring revelation. Like a table with four sides, the unity of the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist can be seen from the viewpoints of prophecy, pneumatology, language, and sacramentality. Grounded in Catholic systematic theology, the author extends the conversation to ecumenical reflection and implications for communities of faith.

The T&T Clark Companion to Augustine and Modern Theology is both a theological companion to the study of Augustine, and a resource for thinking about Augustine's importance in modern theology. Each of the essays brings Augustinian depth to a broad range of contemporary theological concerns. The volume unveils cutting-edge Augustinian scholarship for a new generation and at the same time enables readers to see the timely significance of Augustine for today. Each of the essays not only introduces readers to key themes in the Augustinian corpus but also provides readers with fresh interpretations that are fully conversant with the theological problems facing the church in our world today. Designed as both a guide for students and a reference point for scholars, it will seek both to outline the frameworks of key Augustinian debates while at all times pushing forward fresh interpretative strategies concerning his thought.

Is it ever appropriate for non-Catholic Christians to receive Holy Communion at a Catholic Mass? What should a pastor do to preserve the holiness and the purpose of Communion? What happens when a non-Catholic receives Holy Communion? How should a Catholic pastor respond to non-Catholics who wish to have communion without conveying harshness, scrupulosity, legalism, or rudeness? Intended to help Christians recognize the present provisional norms and to see new possibilities in eucharistic sharing, Communion with Non-Catholic Christiansexamines the risks, challenges, and opportunities involved in the admission of communion to non-Catholic Christians. Communion with Non-Catholic Christiansbegins by defining eucharistic sharing. It assists Catholics and non-Catholics in understanding the present discipline of eucharistic sharing or receiving Holy Communion outside of one's own church. Secondly, it looks at what caution should be taken in eucharistic sharing, the values at stake, and the reasons for more open eucharistic sharing for Christian unity. Finally, it looks at the opportunities in eucharistic sharing and the possibility of full communion. By focusing on liturgical law and pastoral practices, this book moves the discussion of the admission of communion forward to new possibilities for growth in communion. Chapters are: "What is Eucharistic Sharing?" "Risks, or Some Reasons for Caution in Eucharistic Sharing," "Challenges, or Some Reasons for a More Open Eucharistic Sharing," and "Opportunities, or Sharing the Eucharist in Hope for Full Communion."

On the night before he died, Jesus prayed that we would be one as he and his Father are one so that the world might believe in him. This book is a collection of articles and other information that tries to focus on issues that have divided the Church of Jesus Christ so that we can begin or continue working toward the unity for which Jesus prayed. We must be about the Father's business.
