The Challenge of Diversity: The Witness of Paul and the Gospels

Couverture
Fortress Press - 172 pages
This book is addressed primarily to Christians of various denominations in the United States-to parishes, both laity and clergy, and to students. The book is useful in teaching, preaching, spiritual formation, and mission. Its aim is simply to be a source of Christian renewal at both the personal and the parish levels as together we seek to minister to one another and to the world. It is an invitation to reach beyond our own perspective and to embrace a wider circle of diverse viewpoints as legitimate expressions of the Christian life-both in the New Testament and in the contemporary church-and to be open to learn and grow from them.
