A presentation by Vic Thiessen at the Anabaptist Network Theology Forum, December 7, 2004
by Stuart Murray Williams
A. Introduction: Hermeneutics and Christendom
Update: You can now read our Report on the Lost Message of Jesus Debate as well as Stuart Murray Williams statement from the evening or share your own vies in the Lost Message of Jesus Debate discussion forum.
We are pleased to announce a public debate sponsored by the Evangelical Alliance to explore the issues raised in The Lost Message of Jesus, a new book by Baptist minister Steve Chalke, which suggests his thinking is becoming increasingly ‘Anabaptist’. His book invites readers to take Jesus seriously and questions interpretations of the life and death of Jesus that imply God condones the use of violence for redemptive purposes.
You may also want to read the first chapter of The Lost Message of Jesus which is available on the internet here.
We'd like to highlight this new book by C Arnold Snyder about Anabaptism.
