Discover a fresh Eucharistic theology that unlocks the possibility for unity in our diverse human family.
In an age of accelerating globalization that creates unprecedented experiences of diversity and exacerbates perceptions of division, Neville Callam, the General Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance, offers a transforming vision of a world brought together through the power of the Lord’s Supper.
In this urgently needed and eagerly welcomed volume, Callam reflects on the untapped power of Holy Communion as a force for reconciliation, healing, and restored wholeness in our fragmented churches and communities. In these pages, he explores:
· Race—a manufactured diversity and the sin of racism
· Ethnicity—the borders used to establish exclusion
· Communion—as a way to celebrate inclusive community
· Caribbean theology—as a model for overcoming fragmentation by affirming imago dei across the multiple ethnic identities of the region
Join the journey through God’s Word to cultivate the common bond that we share and to unite the people of God.
“Rarely in recent Baptist life has a global leader of Callam’s distinction and intellect blended this peculiar caliber of theological, pastoral,ecumenical, and activist reflection into such an informative, compelling, and accessible treatise. The church now has a fascinating newresource to accelerate our mission reach into the world.” —Dr. Jeffrey Haggray, Executive Director and Director of Public Witness and Advocacy, American Baptist Home Mission Societies
