Product description

Seeking the Church intends to introduce students, teachers and inquirers to key themes and dynamics in being the Church. In a time of significant change and search for new forms of Christian community the book locates such developments within the wider Christian tradition of theological reflection on the doctrine of the Church.

Product Reviews

Stephen Pickard combines that rare gift of being able to write about the church, mission, culture and theology with wisdom, insight and profound depth, and all rooted in his own pastoral and ministerial experiences. He is without doubt one of the most exciting theologians of our generation, and this, his latest book, is a rich and illuminating study that is set to become essential reading for all who seeking to understand the forces shaping ecclesial life and Christian discipleship in contemporary culture. Seeking the Church is a major book on the nature of the church for our time, and by one of our wisest and most creative scholars. Revd Canon Martyn Percy, Principal, Ripon College, Cuddesdon Through a critical engagement with a long theological tradition of reflection on the nature of the Church, Stephen Pickard offers us a dynamic 'pilgrim ecclesiology'. The search for God is necessarily undertaken through a shared human journey across the world's rocky terrain. The Church is made visible in those myriad moments and places in which God's people confess together that they have been sought and found by Christ. This book will be an invaluable resource for clergy, teachers and students who wish to learn about the nature of the Church and its place in the world. Simon Oliver, University of Nottingham, UK
