Why is theology often divorced from ministry? Why is ministry left bereft of a robust theology? Ray S. Anderson, a professor of Fuller Theological Seminary for over thirty years, has left a legacy of provocative reflections on these questions. In this book, Kettler provides a sure guide to major themes in the work of one of the most creative theological minds to have sought to integrate theology and ministry. Ray Anderson's radical incarnational theology of the "kenotic community" provides a new basis for a broader, risk-taking ecclesiology. He also brings theological anthropology to the front of the agenda, and therefore into ministry to actual hurting human persons. Each chapter ends with a case study from an actual life situation, to "test out" and work through the implications of Anderson's theology.
