Description

A Call to Christian Formation shows that theology is both integrally related to formation in Jesus Christ and shapes our understanding of the world. John Clark and Marcus Peter Johnson explore the deep connections between theology and the life of the Christian and examine what it means for Christians to be transformed by the renewing of their minds. Christian formation is incomplete and impossible without theological formation, because Christ transforms our hearts and minds, attuning them to the reality of God. Clark and Johnson also emphasize Christian formation as a defining feature of the church, arguing that theology must be integrally connected to the church's traditions and practices.

Professors and students in theology, introduction to Christian thought, and Christianity courses will value this work. It will also appeal to pastors and church leaders.
