By the Renewing of Your Minds: The Pastoral Function of Christian Doctrine

Ellen T. Charry


Through close readings of a number of classic texts, this book develops the thesis that classic Christian theology is thoroughly shaped by pastoral and moral purposes. The book's aim is to show contemporary theologians how to teach the faith in a morally constructive fashion, transcending the current destructive opposition between ‘academic’ and ‘pastoral’ theology.

Keywords: classic texts, Christian theology, faith, academic theology, pastoral theology, moral purposes
