Engages important issues faced by the Christian church in witness and ministry

Renowned for his unique slant on ecclesial affiliation -- by his own confession "evangelical without being Protestant, catholic without being Roman, and orthodox without being Eastern" -- Lutheran theologian Carl E. Braaten has long been a respected voice in ecclesiological discourse. In Critical Issues in Ecclesiology the voices of eleven authors from a variety of church traditions come together to honor Braaten in a volume that seeks the renewal of the church, the clarifying of its catholic evangelical witness to the apostolic faith, and the restoration of its "passion for mission" within the Great Tradition.

Lutheran Quarterly
"This collection would make an excellent selection for courses in ecclesiology or on the Third Article of the Apostles' Creed."
Living Church
"This book is worthwhile and enjoyable for anyone with a general theological interest who takes seriously the nature of the church, indeed the Church, within a Christian life."
