A Theology of Public Life by ProQuest


Charles Mathewes offers a way forward for the first concern not by stripping Christ ian conviction of its confessional character (so that some publicly permissible Christian ethic migth rescued), but rather in addressing the second concern by elaborating a thoroughgoing theeologv of Christian participation in public life. An eschatological, naher than apocalyptic, posture toward the world enables the church simultaneously to affirm that the world always has been and always will be defined in dependence upon the grace of God and to reject claims, religious or secular, to have unveiled the final meaning of history.
