Analogous Uses of Language, Eucharistic Identity and the by Aaron James

By Aaron James

the writer argues that Baptist theologian James William McClendon Jr's articulation of the 'baptist' imaginative and prescient involves an account of the genuine presence of Christ's physique and blood that's internally devoted to that imaginative and prescient. moreover, such an account of genuine presence means that the 'baptist' imaginative and prescient is itself a contribution of Baptists to ecumenical Christianity. The argument is determined within the context of a few modern Baptist engagement with ecumenical Christianity, rather ancient Catholic Christianity.

"Aaron James indicates how an ecumenically minded Baptist theologian can take in this subject matter with creativity, grace, and an inspiring wish to carry up our hearts towards the wondrous "sacrament of solidarity" and "sacrament of charity". He powerfully reminds us why this can good be an important dialog that Christians may have today."
