The Household of God: Lectures on the Nature of the Church

£9.99

Product description

'This book embodies the Kerr Lectures given in Glasgow in November 1952 by Bishop Lesslie Newbigin, Bishop in Madurai in the Church of South India. The author says "I have deliberately restricted attention to the question which seems to me to be central in the present ecumenical debate, the question of the nature of the Church itself...I have simply tried to make a contribution to the discussion of the question 'By what is the Church constituted?' " The first chapter sketches the present context of the discussion and touches on the biblical meaning of the word Church. The next three chapters examine the three answers to the central question which may be roughly characterised as Protestant, Catholic, and Pentecostal. The last two chapters argue that the Church is only to be understood in a perspective which is at once eschatological and missionary, the perspective of the end of the world and the ends of the earth.'

Book in good condition, although there is damage to the dust jacket and foxing to page edges and the dust jacket due to age.
