Scripture, Tradition and Reason are the three criteria against which all Christian teaching must be measured. Arguments surrounding many contemporary issues -- such as the ordination of women, the "threefold ministry", ecumenical affiliations, Christian ethics -- rest on the relationship of these three criteria.
This important study, by twelve scholars of international standing, serves the double purpose of honoring a distinguished churchman and scholar, R. P. C. Hanson, and bringing together learned discussions of this supremely important theme -- for the first time explored in such depth to provide an invaluable resource for theologians and scholars in all churches.
"... a useful chart for the church as it embarks upon the stormy seas of the twenty-first century..". -- Anglican Theological Review
