Summary

For many Christians today, the church is not holy it is difficult. In To See History Doxologically, however, J. Alexander Sider argues that it is precisely when the church acknowledges and confronts its many faults and frailties that its holiness is made manifest. Sider develops an understanding of John Howard Yoders eschatology and, most especially, his ecclesiology teaching which, Sider says, exhorts the church to engage in a continual reassessment of its relationships to others and to its own past. What emerges from this in-depth study is an account of the churchs holiness as consisting in its patient, deliberate, and repentant recognition of its own capacity to betray the gospel.
