How the Early Christian “Third Way” Changed the World
Resilient Faith: How the Early Christian “Third Way” Changed the World
WHO: Gerald Sittser, professor of theology at Whitworth University where he serves as senior fellow and researcher in the Office of Church Engagement.
HE SAYS: “The Third Way was like a resistance movement, both subversive and peaceful, bearing witness to God’s coming kingdom. But rather than following a strategy of violent revolution, Christians immersed themselves in the culture as agents of the kingdom.”
THE BIG IDEA: Recovering the practices of the early church can help us today in our post-Christan context.
This thoroughly researched book examines how the early church was able to change the world, and how its practices can be employed today. In nine chapters, the author shows how our Christian witness can be enhanced by learning what early Christians adopted.
