Church: The Human Story of God by Edward Schillebeeckx

By Edward Schillebeeckx

Schillebeeckx completes the trilogy of Jesus (1979) and Christ (1980) with an ecclesiology set within the context of primary theology. In hugely readable style he argues that God's relation to people is often mediated via human event and heritage. Reflecting a Thomistic process all through, Schillebeeckx emphasizes that during construction God offers an integrity in their personal to people and to the realm. therefore God's saving job in heritage . . . doesn't violate yet fairly seeks the success of humanity and the cosmos. Christian identification is determined by participation during this liberation meant by means of God. The church because the beneficial institutionalization of the Christian stream has to be democratized to be able to be in step with its divine challenge. this can be a huge assertion of Schillebeeckx's valuable convictions in regards to the Christian religion and the function of the church on the planet.
