FAITH FOR THE FUTURE: CHURCH’S TEACHINGS FOR A CHANGING WORLD by JESSE ZINK
DescriptionJESSE ZINK The New Church's Teaching series has been one of the most recognizable and useful sets of books in the Episcopal Church. With the launch of the Church's Teachings for a Changing World series, visionary Episcopal thinkers and leaders have teamed up to write a new set of books, grounded and thoughtful enough for seminarians and leaders, concise and accessible enough for newcomers, with a host of discussion resources that help readers to dig deep. This third volume introduces Episcopal theology with the question "Can you capture the good news of Jesus Christ in a tweet?" Author Jesse Zink thinks so: "You are loved with a love unlike anything else--now, go show that love to others. Huge oceans of meaning lie under each word, and his new book welcomes readers into those depths. Each chapter takes a different aspect of Christian faith--God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Creation and Humanity, Baptism, Church, Eucharist, Mission, and the Hope of the World to Come--and links history and tradition with real world experience. Paperback. 96 pages Jesse A. Zink is an Episcopal priest pursuing his doctorate at the University of Cambridge in England. A former missionary in South Africa, he has traveled widely in the Anglican Communion, a journey he chronicled in the bookBackpacking Through the Anglican Communion.
