Always Being Reformed

Shirley C. Guthrie

Paperback 1996-08-01

Publisher Description

Is it possible to maintain and defend Christian faithfulness and integrity in a pluralistic world without being arrogant, exclusive, intolerant, or irrelevant? Is it possible to be open to change, tolerant of difference, and relevant without compromising or sacrificing christian authenticity? Shirley Guthrie looks to the Reformed confessions to answer these questions. He asserts that the confessions are faithful to and respectful of Christian tradition but also are inherently adaptable. By acknowledging a living triune God at work in the world and God's gift in Jesus Christ, the confessions offer a unique understanding of authentic Christian spirituality in a diverse world. This book will assist readers in reclaiming and reinterpreting the confessions for today.
