Full Product Description

Aphrahat, the Syrian poet who lived in the fourth century, described the church of Christ as a coloured bird. What does this bird see when, flying above the surface of the ever-changing sea, it looks at its own reflection? This book considers how the church has permanently re-imagined itself over the course of its historical journey. Far from being a constant, the self-awareness of the church has varied in relation to theological and philosophical trends together with social and political circumstances. Any theory of the church based on a single snapshot of its self-perception is incapable of catching the invariable 'self' of the church and describing it without reduction. Instead, by examining a series of 'selfies' taken from the first century to the present day, this book offers a framework through which the church can be better comprehended in our time.

Meta-Ecclesiology by Cyril Hovorun was published by Palgrave Macmillan in August 2015. The ISBN for Meta-Ecclesiology is 9781137545411.
