C. Trueman: The Creedal Imperative

Das ist mein persönliches Buch des Jahres 2012. Ich bin noch nicht ganz durch, kann es trotzdem innig empfehlen:

Der Verlag schreibt:

Recent years have seen a number of high profile scholars converting to Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy while a trend in the laity expresses an eclectic hunger for tradition. The status and role of confessions stands at the center of the debate within evangelicalism today as many resonate with the call to return to Christianity’s ancient roots. Carl Trueman offers an analysis of why creeds and confessions are necessary, how they have developed over time, and how they can function in the church of today and tomorrow. He writes primarily for evangelicals who are not particularly confessional in their thinking yet who belong to confessional churches—Baptists, independents, etc.—so that they will see more clearly the usefulness of the church’s tradition.

Ein geistreiches und leidenschaftliches Plädoyer für den konfessionellen Gemeindebau. Wer das Buch gelesen hat, wird (hoffentlich) verstehen, weshalb die Rückbindung an Bekenntnisse so wichtig ist.
