Body Politics: Five Practices of the Christian Community Before the Watching World
For more information, see Rachel Waltner Goossen’s research, published in Mennonite Quarterly Review, entitled “Defanging the Beast”.
Five new Testament practices that were central in the life of the early Christian community: binding and loosing; baptism; eucharist; multiplicity of gifts; open meeting. Yoder uncovers the original meaning of the five practices, and shows why the recovery of these practices is so important for the social, economic and political witness of the church today.
