In this book Roman and Eastern Catholic, Anglican and Nonconformist together consider the idea of the People of God the idea which has energized the Jewish community throughout space and time as.a mysterious and challenging complement to their Christian brothers.
The kingdoms of this world and the glory of them were decisively rejected by Christ as the model for his own kingdom. Yet it is surprising how far the Gospel community has been translated into their image. We are familiar with the picture of the Church as an organization and a machine; with the burdening of the servants of God with the trappings of feudal princedom and the status symbols of the executive; with the control of the lawyer and his penalties. The image of the Church as the People of God, the summoning of men into Christ, might strike many of us as dangerously nebulous. Yet what if this free, open and adventurously nomadic image should prove to be the relevant thought- model for our present historical situation?
