Catholicity and the Free Church Tradition with C. Ryan Fields

48m | Apr 3, 2024

Jordan talks with Ryan Fields about his new book on the free church and catholicity. They cover topics like: What is catholicity and why should we want it? Does catholicity involve more than unity? How do Episcopal groups typically define catholicity? Can one denomination monopolize the terminology of catholicity? Why do most think the free church cant have catholicity? Why do free churches not readily identify as catholic? Should they? How do we encourage if so? Is there historical precedent for catholicity in the free church tradition? Has the free church tradition barely studied the problem of catholicity? What does the free church have to contribute that is unique? And more!
