              Sharing Friendship: Exploring Anglican Character, Vocation, Witness and Mission
               

              Sharing Friendship: Exploring Anglican Character, Vocation, Witness and Mission (Hardback, New edition)

              By Thomson, John B.; Series edited by Astley, Jeff; Francis, Revd Canon Leslie J.; Percy, Very Revd Prof. Martyn; Slee, Dr. Nicola

              Sharing Friendship represents a post-liberal approach to ecclesiology and theology generated out of the history, practices and traditions of the Anglican Church. Drawing on the theological ethics of Stanley Hauerwas, this book explores the way friendship for the stranger emerges ...from contextually grounded reflection and conversations with contemporary Anglican theologians within the English tradition, including John Milbank, Oliver Oa (TM)Donovan, Rowan Williams, Daniel Hardy and Anthony Thiselton. Avoiding abstract definitions of character, mission or friendship, John Thomson explores how the history of the English Church reflects a theology of friendship and how discipleship in the New Testament, the performance of worship, and the shape of Anglican ecclesiology are congruent with such a theology. The book concludes by rooting the theme of sharing friendship within the self-emptying kenotic performance of Jesusa (TM) mission, and looks at challenges to the character of contemporary Anglican ecclesiology represented by secularization and globalization as well as by arguments over appropriate new initiatives such as Fresh Expressions.
