In this work, Kevin Vanhoozer offers an original way of approaching Christian theology. Theology is not just a set of beliefs: it is also something we do that involves speech and action. The author uses the theater model to explain how doctrine shapes Christian understanding and forms disciples. On the stage of the world, the Gospel is “performed” according to the instructions for staging the doctrine.

The doctrines are therefore in a way directives to follow. By “performing” them, Christians become active disciples of Jesus Christ and the Church a company of “actors” who all have an important role to play. In a time when everything is changing rapidly, the doctrine roots us in Jesus Christ, in whom everything is held together.

A new look at theology, original and motivating; a compelling vision of what the Church is and what it should do; a demonstration of the importance of doctrine for action. Theology at the service of the Church!
