By Peter L. Tie,David S. Dockery

Doctrine divides! no longer a number of Christians dread doctrine, particularly the doctrine of the church (ecclesiology) that allegedly motives a lot confusion, clash, and controversy in the church. Many decide to stay away from it, yet James Leo Garrett Jr., unique Professor of Theology Emeritus at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, is confident that the a lot kept away from and ignored ecclesiology is where the place the church buildings needs to start to rediscover real team spirit, id, and orthopraxy.

Restore cohesion, recuperate id, Refine Orthopraxy examines Garrett's biblical proposal of the common priesthood. The priesthood idea, accurately understood in a communal experience, integrates the venture, club, ministry, and administration of the church. This e-book is stuffed with intentional and direct conversations with greater than twelve theologians or ecclesiologists from quite a few Christian traditions (Reformed, Pentecostal, Roman Catholic, Mennonite, Baptist, and different unfastened Church) as a way to make clear Garrett's believers' priesthood doctrine, which ultimately issues towards a balanced, biblical, and baptist ecclesiology. An ecclesiology rooted within the biblical priesthood doesn't divide and extinguish yet does unite and distinguish!

"[This] ebook successfully provides Garrett's arguments for the significance of the priesthood of all believers within the formation of a biblical ecclesiology and his functional feedback as to how the church may perhaps perform that doctrine in her management, undertaking, and different church actions . . . Tie indicates himself not just as an independent describer of the essence of but in addition a severe evaluator of Garrett's arguments."

"Peter Tie demonstrates that the doctrine of the church--when perceived in the course of the Christian priesthood, the Trinity, and Christian discipleship--is either primary to theological discernment and fruitful for ecumenical discourse. Professor Tie attracts upon the broad theological corpus of James Leo Garrett Jr. on the way to tackle the challenge, club, ministry, and administration of the church. Christianity's a variety of communions and their best theologians will be richly rewarded via studying this significant book."
