Beginning with a case study of a real conflict within the Batak Christian Protestant Church in Indonesia from 1992 to 1998, it relates a biblical understanding of remembrance to the work of three theologians—Johann Baptist Metz, Alexander Schmemann, and Miroslav Volf—who have made significant contributions in their own respective Christian traditions.
