Description

Through the "narrative theology" that has been so prominent for the last twenty years or more, many Christians have learned a great deal about how we participate in the great narrative of Christ's Church. But we need to learn to think deeply, and more resourcefully, about how single lives are shaped, distinctive individual roles assumed in the life of the Body. The task of this lecture is to explore this subject, as it is depicted in theology and literature.
