Reviews - What do customers think about Faith in History and Society: Toward a Practical Fundamental Theology?
Foundational for lived faith May 1, 2008
This book by JB Metz has become a foundational book for understanding the role of lived faith in the modern world. The implications for active ministry are far-reaching. His emphasis on the "dangerous and liberating memory of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ" is nothing short of revolutionary. And that is why many people consider this work "dangerous". His other categories of reflection such as, "the future on the memory of suffering" and doing theology with an "apocalyptic sting" is the gravelment of diaconal ministry for all the baptized.
I first read this book in 1981 and have drawn from it lessons for my own ministry. I believe this book should be read by all those preparing for ordained ministry and other forms of service in the Church.
