Example text

In order to remain the same. " Page xiii Introduction IN 1988 the American Society of Church History marks the centenary of its founding. All of the society's different functions will receive attention through varied centennial observances. As the core of this organization is critical historical scholarship, many members have thought it fitting that this raison d'être be emphasized in a special volume. So the essays contained herein survey themes and issues that have been crucial to developments in the historical understanding of religious life over the last hundred years.

Schaff's Idea in Retrospect Let it be said at the outset: Philip Schaff's idea of church history is superannuated. Any repristination of his viewsnot in every respect, of course, but in their root premisesis out of the question. Some reasons for this "outdating" will be considered in this essay. Nevertheless, Schaff's "philosophy of church history" (the phrase is his own) is of more than antiquarian or casual interest. It possesses intrinsic interest and importance, and is worthy of studious attention.

Though the pure church is known to God alone, and will become fully manifest only at the last judgment, it is always present within the mixed church and may be recognized by its outward marks (the means of grace). " 31 It may be objected that this real presence is insupportable because Christ has ascended to heaven and is now seated at God's right hand. '' Furthermore, one must distinguish between Christ's individual and his generic character. The particular human individual, Jesus of Nazareth, is no longer present on earth, not even in his glorified form.
