In Acting for Others, a volume from the Emerging Scholars series, Michaela Kušnieriková explores why the metaphor of the church as a family is insufficient. She engages Hannah Arendt's concept of action and criticism of privatizing the public political space by viewing it as a family through Bonhoeffer's ecclesiology and political theology, as well as Staniloae's triadology and theology of the world.
Human action becomes the central theme of the debate—particularly influenced by the Eastern Orthodox ecumenist Staniloae and his vision of the communal relationship and interactivity of human subjects. Synthesizing Bonhoeffer and Staniloae, Christian calling is unfolded as not only acting for others, but also with others as Trinitarian participatory response. This study complements the symbolism of the family metaphor with the metaphor of the church as a political community of solidarity.
