Summary:Given increased attention to the themes of relationality and intersubjectivity in contemporary Christian systematic theology, the author argues that these terms are best understood within the context of a new socially ordered metaphysics in which human beings enjoy a richer life through active participation in various forms of community life. He then applies this analysis to the life of the church.
