Occasional Paper #14 – Social Witness in Generous Orthodoxy

By George Hunsinger

George Hunsinger asserts that the polarity of “progressive politics and traditional faith” is not true to the gospel and not true to the church’s own tradition. More directly, Hunsinger demonstrates that the Presbyterian Church’s new “Study Catechism” embodies theology and social witness together in fidelity to the gospel.

Social Witness in Generous Orthodoxy — Theology and Worship Occasional Paper No. 14 — is a significant contribution to the church’s ongoing discussion of its faith and mission. It is also a demonstration of the capacity of the church’s new catechisms to shape the conversation and to form the church and its members in Christian discipleship that is deeply rooted in the gospel and that bears fruit in active engagements for justice and peace in the world.
