Ponders how the good news of Jesus Christ is made known in our world today.

The New Church’s Teaching series has been one of the most recognizable and useful sets of books in the Episcopal Church. With the launch of the Church’s Teachings for a Changing World series, visionary Episcopal thinkers and leaders have teamed up to write a new set of books, grounded and thoughtful enough for seminarians and leaders, concise and accessible enough for newcomers, with a host of discussion resources that help readers to dig deep.

This third volume introduces Episcopal theology with the question "Can you capture the good news of Jesus Christ in a tweet?" Author Jesse Zink thinks so: “You are loved with a love unlike anything else—now, go show that love to others. Huge oceans of meaning lie under each word, and his new book welcomes readers into those depths.

Each chapter takes a different aspect of Christian faith—God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Creation and Humanity, Baptism, Church, Eucharist, Mission, and the Hope of the World to Come—and links history and tradition with real world experience.

Jesse Zink is the principal of Montreal Dio, an ecumenical theological college affiliated with McGill University, and canon theologian in the Anglican Diocese of Montreal. He holds a Ph.D. in theology from Cambridge University. Baptized in Canada, confirmed and ordained in The Episcopal Church, his ministry has taken him to numerous parts of the world and shapes his understanding of the future of Christianity. He is the author of four previous books on Christian mission and theology in a global world, including Backpacking through the Anglican Communion: A Search for Unity; A Faith for the Future; Christianity and Catastrophe in South Sudan: Civil War, Migration, and the Rise of Dinka Anglicanism; and Grace at the Garbage Dump: Making Sense of Mission in the Twenty-First Century. He lives in Verdun, Quebec.
