Hope Among the Fragments

Ephraim Radner

Paperback 2004-07-01

Recently, national headlines have announced the sexual failings of Catholic priests, as well as the confirmation of an openly gay Episcopal bishop. In our day, the church is fragmented by staggering anxieties involving material stability, personal morality, and doctrinal purity.

In his book Hope among the Fragments, Ephraim Radner reminds us that the church's shared hope is found in scripture. As we vacillate between postures of "competing aggressions" and "exhausted surrenders," struggling to renew, remake, or grow our churches, Radner returns us to the language of scripture, where we discover hope's very reality and form: Jesus Christ. Only by reading the scriptures with Christ as the central figure can the church heal its divisions and claim its identity as a revelation of Christ himself, not merely his beleaguered "instrument."

Hope among the Fragments will guide and encourage biblical theologians, clergy, and anyone concerned with unity in the church.
