Chapter Summary

The aim proposed by Christiaan Mostert in his paper &t;One God: One Church&t; is to explore the extent to which a correspondence might exist between the unity of the triune God and its 'image' in the unity of the church. The practical correlate is important too: what theological impulse does such a correspondence give to the imperative of visible unity? This reply will develop along three lines, reflecting on: The nature of theological models, and this one in particular; Problems that arise from a perichoretic model for unity; and The priority of the mediatorial model for church unity, visible and invisible. Christiaan Mostert argues that some correspondence does exist between the unity of the church and the triune being of one God, and that it has consequences for the visible unity of the churches.
