Apostolicity Then and Now explores apostolicity from its origin to today. Apostolicity is a fundamental mark of the church, referring to Jesus' faith given to, carried on, and taught—unaltered—by a continuous line of apostles. This book primarily focuses on how apostolicity pertains to the church as a whole and views apostolic succession in light of how apostolicity is applicable to the church. Scriptural, historical, theological, and ecumenical contexts provide a thorough study that includes worldviews and their impact on apostolicity.

Chapters are "Who Were the Apostles?" “Why the Early Churches Understood Themselves as Apostolic,” “Apostolicity in History,” “Apostolicity and the Theologians,” “Apostolicity and the Classical and Modern Worldviews,” “Apostolicity in a Postmodern World,” “Apostolicity in Ecumenical Dialogue,” and “Apostolicity in an Ecumenical Church.”

John J. Burkhard, OFM Conv, PhD, is a teacher for the Education for Parish Service Program of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., and Professor of Systematic Theology at Washington Theological Union. He is the translator of Imagining the Catholic Church written by Ghislain Lafont, and is a contributor to the journals New Theology Review and Worship published by Liturgical Press.
