With the passing of time and the development of significant cultural changes, the Reformed Church in America has continued to examine its perspectives on Christian teaching. Here the contemporary doctrinal positions of the RCA, as presented by its Commission on Theology, are gathered into one convenient reference work.The papers included here are divided into chapters according to six categories: scripture, faith, sacraments, ministry, witness, and sexuality. Within these documents are important statements on such topics as Christian witness in today's pluralistic society, the role and authority of women in ministry, Christian witness to Muslims, and the church and homosexuality.
