'Should the church can the church repent? How can the living be held responsible for the faults of past generations? If the church is constantly "apologizing" for everything imaginable, does she not risk trivializing herself? In this remarkable book, Jeremy Bergen displays a sure hand in addressing questions like these. It is not political correctness bids the church repent, he argues, but love of neighbor and fidelity to the Crucified. An important and timely study.' - Joseph Mangina, Wycliffe College, Toronto School of Theology, Canada.--Sanford Lakoff

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This is a theological reflection on churches repenting of events and convictions they have held in the past. Churches have been repenting, apologizing, and asking forgiveness for beliefs and practices they once justified. These often high-profile statements raise questions such as: Can a church repent for things that happened centuries ago? Is it possible for a church to sin or to be forgiven? What difference will repenting make? Is this just more church hypocrisy? In this book Jeremy Bergen tells the story of ecclesial repentance in recent decades and explores the theological issues its raises. He argues that because it is grounded in the doctrines of Christ and the Holy Spirit, ecclesial repentance requires the church to articulate in new ways its own nature and mission.
