Item Description...
Overview
First Be Reconciled seeks to recover the church as a unique reconciled body in a world of enmity, particularly via civil litigation. It traces the church's historic reticense to litigate within the body and with non-believers through key biblical texts, a historical survey, with a particular focus on the Anabaptist witness, and a constructive theological defense of the necessity of eschewing certain forms of civil litigation contrary to the church's witness of reconciliation. Church retraces the history of Christians in the courts: Apostle Paul, Augustine, Luther, Calvin and the Anabaptists. A constructive theological argument is made for the continuing relevance of a radical stance within the church toward litigation both among believers and with non-Christians. The book argues that the gospel s claim that reconciliation is a product of Christ s life, death and resurrection and the maintenance of the church as an alternative politics is at stake when the church fails to live as a reconciling body through its participation in certain forms of civil litigation.
