In 1937, prior to the 1948 inauguration of the World Council of Churches, Karl Barth challenged the churches to engage in "real strict sober genuine theology" in order that the unity of the church might be visibly realized. At that time The Salvation Army didn't aspire to become formally known as a church, even though it was a founding member of the WCC. Today it is globally known as a social welfare organization, concerned especially to serve the needs of those who find themselves at the margins of society. Less well known is that seventy years after Barth's challenge it has made its peace with the view that it is a church denomination. Accepting Barth's challenge to the churches, and in dialogue with his own ecumenical ecclesiology, the concept of the church as an Army is interrogated, in service to The Salvation Army's developing understanding of its identity, and to the visible unity of God's church.

"This splendid study should be shouted from the rooftops!...this book deserves to be read by all Methodists, especially those who are deeply concerned about how we understand the nature of Church, as opposed to a "movement" within the Church ... This is a courageous undertaking, reinforcing our view that it should be widely read and reflected upon."
-Rev. Harvey Richardson, Methodist Recorder, 8th May 2015

"In its way this is an iconoclastic book that might help a much-loved movement reinvent itself. Humbly sharing the journey with other churches may be the best place to start. Ours, after all, is a world where militarist metaphors have become highly contested but where work among the outcast and poor remains painfully pressing."
-Mark D. Chapman, Theology 119 (2), March-April 2016

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
