The Evolution of a Ucc Style: History, Ecclesiology, and Culture of the United Church of Christ

The Evolution of a Ucc Style: History, Ecclesiology, and Culture of the United Church of Christ

The Evolution of a UCC Style focuses on the development of themes that define the United Church of Christ (UCC). Walker examines the ethos and culture of the UCC rather than simply describing its structures, and addresses the themes of inclusiveness, diversity of theological heritage (Reformation, Enlightenment, and Pietism), congregational polity (the one and the many), liberal theological approach, and ecumenical spirit. She also takes a look at the tensions and boundaries contained within each theme.

The Church of Christ

The Church of Christ

The Distinctive Nature of the New Testament Church Behind the historical church of the New Testament lies the purpose and wisdom of God. The New Testament church is a unique institution of divine origin. The systematic study of Scripture reveals that Christianity is ordered after a pattern and possess a distinct identity: designed by the Lord, conveyed through the words of the apostles, and seen in the practice of early Christians. Only when following this pattern can we fulfill the command to glorify God in the church. In this study, Edward C. Wharton establishes that Scripture contains a divine pattern for the church of Christ. He then presents a systematic study of the biblical passages relating to the church, creating a clear understanding of the pattern set by God.

Calendar: Christ's Time for the Church

Calendar: Christ's Time for the Church

A probing but clearly written book, Calendar will find an appreciative audience beyond academia and clergy to the laity of the church: choirs and their directors, worship planners, adult study groups, and others who want to understand better the church's times of preparation and celebration. Calendar centers largely on theological meaning and parish practice in relation to liturgical time. Deliberately, almost no attention is given to detailed historical development, much of which is exceedingly complex in its origins and technical in its detail. An appendix entitled "Forgetting What You Were Always Taught (Or, This Book in a Nutshell)" aptly describes the radical reordering that Stookey believes occurs when our understanding of time and the story of Jesus takes its bearings from the Incarnation. So, just as the Christian week begins with Sunday, the day of Resurrection, Stookey follows the Christian year beginning with the season of Easter, and only then Lent; Christmas, then Advent. Illuminating discussions of Ordinary and Extraordinary Time, and the Sanctoral Cycle follow.
