Bound to Be Free delivers a powerful message of ecumenical hope. In this superb work Reinhard Htter explores the biblical concepts of church (ekklesia), freedom (eleutheria), and truthful speech (parrhesia), showing not only that the proper meanings of these three concepts interpenetrate one another but also that rending them asunder lies at the root of Christian division today.Christian division, Htter argues, issues from the all-too-familiar individualistic accounts of church, freedom, and speech that have haunted modernity and clouded the gospel. Here at the start of the twenty-first century, it is imperative for Christians to reconsider the interrelationship of these concepts in the God of the gospel. Htter discusses the meaning, role, and importance of each concept, engaging classical and contemporary voices in theology, philosophy, and culture that reveal how church, freedom, and truthful speech support one another.ContentsAcknowledgments1.
