Spiritual Identity and Churchly Praxis

Mouw, Richard J. "Spiritual Identity and Churchly Praxis, " Theological Education 23, Supplement (1987): 88-112.

Mouw addresses the history and current understandings of the distinction between theory and praxis within an evangelical Protestant perspective. While far from denying a social role for Christians and their churches, he stresses not only the spiritual nature of churchly praxis but also the centrality of knowing (as opposed to doing) in seminary curricula.
