Apostolic and Prophetic: Ecclesiological Perspectives

Overview

Apostolic, ecumenical and radical: these are the ecclesial characteristics highlighted by Gesa E. Thiessen while explaining her vision of the church. The author focuses on the meaning of each of these marks as well as on their intrinsic connections, an approach that leads her to delve deep into the history of the church, and to draw a wide span between the apostolic past and a radical perspective on the present and future ecumenical church.

Overview

Apostolic, ecumenical and radical: these are the ecclesial characteristics highlighted by Gesa E. Thiessen while explaining her vision of the church. The author focuses on the meaning of each of these marks as well as on their intrinsic connections, an approach that leads her to delve deep into the history of the church, and to draw a wide span between the apostolic past and a radical perspective on the present and future ecumenical church. Apostolic and Prophetic studies the concept of apostolicity emerging in patristic theology and examines this concept as it has been developed in select Lutheran, Roman Catholic, and Anglican ecumenical documents.

Editorial Reviews

Reviews in Religion and Theology - W. Travis McMaken
“Thiessen's Apostolic and Prophetic is a thoughtful tour through some interesting regions of contemporary ecclesiological reflection. Those exercised by the ecclesiological themes of apostolicity, ecumenicity, and radicality will undoubtedly find its vistas engaging.”
Theological Book Review - Scott Harrower
...Thiessen is trying to forge a new way forward for the identity and practice of the church given who Jesus is. [...] The contribution of Thiessen's work is that she is not glibly denigrating earlier or alternative ecclesiologies, rather she is trying to move past old roadblocks and suggest a liveable and living future for the church. This book is recommended for courses in seminaries as its thoughtful blend of theology, cultural critique and ecclesial mindfulness will promote lively discussion.
The Expository Times - Ian Clausen
Thiessen’s perspective is that of a Lutheran theologian with a deep commitment to the aspirations of a twentieth-century ecumenism. [...] Apostolic and Prophetic makes powerful suggestions and should be part of the contemporary conversation around Christian witness, discipleship, and pursuing more visible Church unity among traditions.
