Publishers Description
Martin Luther once listed seven "marks" of the church-those defining ecclesial features that show where the true church is to be found. This insightful volume brings together essays by ten leading Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, and Orthodox theologians, each analyzing one of the seven traditional marks of the church and discussing how it is found, or not found, in today's churches. Writing about each "mark" of the church are these scholars: Gerhard O. Forde and Richard Lischer on proclamation; Susan K. Wood and John H. Erickson on baptism; K. Paul Wesche and Richard A. Norris Jr. on the eucharist; David S. Yeago on the office of the Keys; Carl E. Braaten on ordination; Robert W. Jenson on catechesis; and William J. Abraham on discipleship. The picture of contemporary church life that is developed by these authors is grim, but their analyses and practical suggestions are both constructive and necessary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Marks of the Body of Christ?

The title needs correcting, but the book rocks out!  Jul 28, 2009
I am very surprised that this book does not have a single other review, and that I hadn't reviewed it earlier, considering it is almost ten years since I read it the first time. Perhpas it is owing to this site's typo on the title. Either way, it is a very useful and insightful collection of essays from various theological communions: Lutheran, RC, and EO mainly. As you can see in the table of contents, these authors are all in their own right heavy hitters who have great experience with the texts, the current state of the dialogue and a vested interest in achieving unity not for its own sake (the modern curse) but because Truth is One. No one is selling the farm here.

Baptism, Eucharist, Ministry, Catechesis, Preaching and Discipleship (the seventh mark of the Church for Luther!) are all given thorough treatment. Conservative in its approach, it reminds me that the very best that creative theology has to offer emerges from faithfulness to the deposit of the past, which, as an Orthodox Christian, I would argue is continually present by the Spirit in Christ's Bride. If you are looking for some intelligently crafted and argued ecumenical food for thought, begin here.
