Item description for Dynamic Diversity: Bridging Class, Age, Race and Gender in the Church by Bruce Milne...

IVP Print On Demand Title From the footpaths of our cities to the chatrooms of the Internet, people are connecting today as never before. As the planet shrinks through the multiple forces of immigration, travel, electronic communication and more fluid employment patterns, we will find ourselves increasingly forced into contact with those who are significantly different from ourselves. Sadly however, the stranger is often a threat to be resisted rather than a friend to be embraced. In this context of in-your-face diversity, it is time to revisit the heart of the New Testament, with its claim that in Jesus Christ a new quality of human relationship is possible. In his letter to the Ephesians, the apostle Paul claims that Christians are a new kind of people, part of a new community: a 'new humanity' in Christ (Ephesians 2:15). We exist not in isolation, but in relationship. Dynamic Diversity contends that all Christian congregations everywhere are called to be bridging places, centres of reconciliation, where the major diversities separating human beings are overcome through the presence of God's Holy Spirit. Bruce Milne presents a biblical model for today and tomorrow where the diversities of gender, generation, ethnicity, color and socio- economic status present exciting and challenging opportunities to demonstrate practical oneness. When this happens, churches become wonderfully alive. In Christ we can be one people, one new humanity, one life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dynamic Diversity: Bridging Class, Age, Race and Gender in the Church?

Insightful and Challenging -- to an evangelical audience!  May 15, 2009
Bruce Milne's "Dynamic Diversity" is a thoughtful challenge to the homogeneous congregations that dominate North American Protestant Christianity. From years of experience working with a diverse church in Vancouver, Canada, Milne provides solid biblical, theological, and practical support for his "new-humanity church" which cherishes and pursues diversity in our increasingly multicultural existence. In spite of these strengths, the book lacks in one essential area: for a book on diversity, his perspective is exclusively white, middle-class evangelical Christian. He also tends to universalize his evangelical perspective on the Church, Scripture, worship, mission, etc. As a evangelical student at a seminary with a majority of mainline Protestant students, I do not think his arguments would be very convincing to many of my Methodist, Presbyterian, Disciples of Christ, or Lutheran colleagues. In this, his challenge is only really going to be relevant and received by the evangelical community. To be honest, the subtitle of the book should be: Bridging Class, Age, Race and Gender in the evangelical Church. Again, Milne's book is helpful, but only for a specific audience.
