A vibrant, contemporary faith requires careful attention to the past. Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant traditions drink from a common well, and their practices, though diverse, draw from the same waters of early church history. Today, many evangelicals are now re-engaging with early church practices as they seek to live as disciples. In Remembering Our Future, Andrew Walker and Luke Bretherton explore those ancient traditions with the help of today’s leaders and theologians.
Reflecting on a range of issues, Walker and Bretherton examine such questions as:
- What is the place of tradition in the church’s life?
- How should we interpret the Bible?
- How should we worship?
- What, in other words, might “deep church” look like?
The Logos edition of Remembering Our Future integrates completely with your digital library. Scripture passages link directly to your favorite English translation and your original-language texts, instantly connecting you to a wealth of resources, and networked passage guides, word studies, and commentaries allow you to delve into God’s Word like never before.
