By Graham Buxton,Scot McKnight

Christians are usually tempted to encapsulate God of their personal little bins, as though God might be tied all the way down to our finite state of mind. yet we will be able to neither cultivate nor absolutely comprehend God, for theology has much to do with coming to phrases with the secret of God. This revised variation of Dancing within the Dark--shaped, as within the first variation, through the 2 overarching topics of God as Trinity and a theology of participation--embraces the concept of puzzle in proposing a compelling imaginative and prescient of seeing all issues eventually united in the internal lifetime of God. As we interact in Christian ministry, we're summoned to take part as grace-filled religion groups within the triune God's immeasurably loving and therapeutic paintings on this planet, prime those who find themselves in darkness into an understanding of the God who imparts lifestyles in all its wonderful abundance, that that's so . . . and a trip into the secret of that that is to come back. The freeing ministry of the gospel is either a announcement and an invitation--an invitation to the dance!

"Ministry may be lowered to the pragmatics of what works or to top practices as simply as church will be decreased to a brick development or an area outpost of a old denomination, and preaching can also be lowered to a formulation, a plan, and mechanics. In Dancing within the Dark, Graham Buxton reverses those all too universal reductionisms within the church via turning all we do in ministry towards God, towards God's venture, towards God's gospel, and towards the church as designed to get swept into the joyous, gracious, adventurous, and endless dance of the Trinity in God's very self. What a breath of unpolluted grace this publication is."
