EL CRISTIANISMO COMO COMUNIDAD Y LAS COMUNIDADES CRISTIANAS
Trigo sees each individual as having significance in terms of relationships with others, that is, within community. He emphasizes the importance of Christians being part of communities of believers whose faith is influenced by and strengthened within their own particular cultural contexts and their own unique values and social interactions. The author describes these Christian communities as taking various forms that can express themselves in many different ways and social patterns. Although his views are based on traditional Christian beliefs, Trigo offers fresh ways of thinking about the church and the human community that can have meaning for our global contemporary society.
