The Emerging Christian Minority

  • By Joel C. Daniels, Victor Lee Austin
$12.99
($18.00)
An increase in secularization throughout the Western world has resulted in Christian communities finding themselves in a new context: emerging as a minority group. What does this changing landscape mean for existing Christian communities? Are there biblical or historical precedents for this situation? What should we expect in the future? These were the issues taken up by the speakers at the 2016 conference, ""The Emerging Christian Minority,"" sponsored by the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology. ""The Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology has once again gathered a splendid spectrum of voices (Jewish and Christian, Orthodox and Catholic and Protestant) to address a timely topic for all: How are Christians to live hopefully as a Christian minority? . . . . An excellent resource for pastors, congregations, and theologians alike to discuss the foreseeable future of Christ's people."" --James Buckley, Loyola College of Arts and Sciences, Loyola University Maryland ""Some tend to view our culture's increasing secularization as a threat to religious life in the United States. In contrast, the essays in The Emerging Christian Minority embrace this secularization as a potentially liberating moment rich with possibility for increased vitality of religious communities. . . . This volume will enrich all, from academic theologians to pastors, priests, and rabbis. It may also point us beyond our limp 'interfaith dialogue' towards truly vital interfaith work."" --Kathryn Greene-McCreight, author of Darkness is My Only Companion: A Christian Response to Mental Illness VICTOR LEE AUSTIN, the Program Director of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology, is Theologian-in-residence of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas and Church of the Incarnation, Dallas. JOEL C. DANIELS is an Episcopal priest at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in New York City and postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Mind and Culture.
