Chapter Summary

The crisis of the church will remain unless one is prepared to go further, to move through and beyond post-Christian thought. Faced with the post-Christian condition of Amsterdam, search for a post-Christian identity while using the catholic Reformed repository. In face of the post-Christian idea that God belongs to the past, the psalms verse invites one to make a fundamental shift and to think about God as the one who is present, actual and living. The identity of every human is eccentric in God. The folly of the glorious gloriless cross is the key to deal with the riddle of natural evil and of the evil in human life. The actuality of scripture lies in the actuality of the living God. The church in Amsterdam is only a remnant of what it was in the past. What the church needs is theological self-understanding that gives it strength to remain vital.
