About this product
- DescriptionTraditioning refers to the whole process by which the Christian faith is passed along from generation to generation. At the core of this faith is the claim that God has begun to transform the world on the basis of God's universal compassion. This was the core message of the Galilean Jewish peasant who stands at the dawn of Christianity. But was this peasant right? Many Christians have bet their lives on the hope that he was right, and such fiercely subversive hope is the necessary core of Christianity. Yet, as Orlando Espin shows, the custodians of this hope are t principally the custodians of doctrine. In fact, he is critical of Christianity's historical inclination to doctrinify the subversive hope of Jesus. Instead, building on his previous work on popular Catholicism, he looks to the role of those on the margins, the disposables, as faithful keepers and traditioners of the Christian message.
