Title: MODELS OF THE CHURCH (EPANDED EDITION)
In this expanded edition of Models of The Church, one of America's leading theologians defines the basic functions of the Church while assessing its different roles in the life of believers and in its mission on earth. Avery Dulles has carefully sifted out six major approaches or ìmodelsî through which the Churchís character can be understood: as Institution, Mystical Communion, Sacrament, Herald, Servant, and, in a recent addition to the book, as Community of Disciples. A balanced theology, he concludes, must incorporate the major affirmations of each.
