Today is All Saints Day. A festival which should be celebrated by more Christians. I read Biography as Theology for the first time this summer and it sheds light on this festival. I think the book holds a seed which is ready to be planted today i.e. that Christian character is formed in community. I wonder whether this is a pathway for the church which has yet to be formed in the early years of this century. A church which starts with story, creates saints that exemplars and gathers to practice the Faith.
Did McClendon ever onside the the liturgical implications of this book in particular?

John, see the recent book by Paul Fiddes, Brian Haymes and Richard Kidd, Baptists and the Communion of Saints (Baylor, 2014).
