Gather all the doctrinal disputes between Rome, Orthodoxy, and Protestantism, and they can probably all be subsumed within the question, ''What is Tradition?'' Retrieving the Tradition by D.H. Williams, professor at Loyola and a Baptist pastor, is a rather remarkable plea for Evangelicals and others from Anabaptist traditions to take seriously Tradition in terms of the interaction between theology and life in the ancient Church and the context this provided for the interpretation of Scripture. Clean, solid copy with almost no external cover wear. Marginalia and underlining can be found scattered throughtout text.

An Eighth Day View:

A learned and uniquely constructive book that gently urges "suspicious" Christians to reclaim the patristic roots of their faith. Written to help Protestant Christians recognize the early church fathers as an essential part of their faith, this book is addressed primarily to the evangelical, independent, and free church communities, who remain largely suspicious of church history and the relationship between Scripture and tradition. D. H. Williams clearly explains why every branch of today's church owes its heritage to the doctrinal foundation laid by postapostolic Christianity. Based on solid historical scholarship, this volume shows that embracing the "catholic" roots of the faith will not lead to the loss of Protestant distinctiveness but is essential for preserving the Christian vision in our rapidly changing world.
