Item description for Can These Bones Live?: A Catholic Baptist Engagement with Ecclesiology, Hermeneutics, and Social Theory by Barry Harvey...

Outlines how the church needs to recover and reinvigorate core ecclesial practices relating to Scripture, doctrine, baptism, Eucharist, and spiritual discipline.

Publishers Description
In this book, Barry Harvey offers a doctrine of the church that combines Baptist distinctives and origins with an unbending commitment to the visible church as the social body of Christ. Writing from a postliberal, post-Constantinian perspective, Harvey outlines how the church, in its current Western setting, needs to recover and reinvigorate core ecclesial practices in order to "remember the scattered followers of Jesus into the earthy-historical form of the crucified and risen Christ." These core practices include the theological interpretation of Scripture, the development of sound doctrine, the centrality of baptism and the Eucharist, the exercises of spiritual discipline, and the cultivation of the church as a distinctive social body. This book will serve as a useful text for students of ecclesiology, systematic theology, missiology, and ethics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Can These Bones Live?: A Catholic Baptist Engagement with Ecclesiology, Hermeneutics, and Social Theory?

Postliberal Reflections on the 'Dis-Membered' Body of Christ  Feb 20, 2010
Barry Harvey brings together an enormous amount of scholarship and reading from a wide swath of Christian thought to reflect on the `dis-membered body of Christ'.

What kind of story is the Church in? Where are we in that story? What does it mean for us or for God's purposes that the Church is divided (or dismembered)? Where, then, do we stand?

Harvey seeks to find an answer to these questions by tracing the Church's journey: from early Christian apocalyptic to partnership with earthly powers (the `Constantinian shift'), through changes in eucharistic theology in the Middle Ages that led to the concept of the individual, to the modern and postmodern ages of where the nation-state (under the influence of democratic liberalism) mediates our public selves and where global capitalism fuels restless desire and consumption.

This book holds out a stubborn hope that transcends a very bleak world. Harvey doesn't pull any punches about the desperate state of the pilgrim people of God (dry bones). Nevertheless his engagement with ecclesiology, hermeneutics and social theory help us to find ourselves `out of control' in the true freedom that comes from holy vulnerability, and on our way to the eternal city of which we are true citizens.

I recommend this book very highly.
