Banks and Braaten
Today I got two new books in the mail - two books I've been wanting for some time: Robert Banks, Paul's Idea of Community: The Early House Churches in their Cultural Setting, Revised Edition (Hendrickson, 1994) and Carl Braaten, Mother Church: Ecclesiology and Ecumenism (Fortress, 1998).
Banks studied at the universities of Sydney, London, and Cambridge, as well as Moore Theological College; was founding professor of lay ministry and chair of the ministry division at Fuller Seminary; and is currently director and dean of the Macquarie Christian Studies Institute in Australia. Braaten is professor emeritus at Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, founder and executive director of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology, and co-editor of the journal Pro Ecclesia (in which our own Peter Leithart has been published).
I'll write more after I've read more.
