Item description for As Pilgrims Progress: Learning How Christians Can Walk Hand in Hand When They Don't See Eye to Eye. by David E. Bjork Ph. D....
Called As Pilgrims Progress: Learning How Christians Can Walk Hand in Hand When They Don't See Eye to Eye, the book is written in a very simple, experiential, Evangelical style, but is quite profound. Rather than focusing on institution/theological ecumenism, the book advocates a much more personal pursuit of unity, building on common faith, discipleship, and Christian identity, with a willingness to learn from and appreciate other Christian traditions. It has the merit of being enormously appreciative of both traditions and accurate in its portrayal of them. This is a message that needs to be heard, particularly coming from two Evangelical pastors, though I wish Catholic priests could be as appreciative of Evangelical Christianity. - Thomas P. Rausch, S.J.

Valuable insights on a critical topic Mar 7, 2007
This is an important book about Christian unity, which the Bible tells us is close to God's heart. The book's subtitle sums up its goal and contents well: "Learning how Christians can walk hand-in-hand when they don't see eye-to-eye." The authors, while academically sound, are writing from their own first-hand experiences. The book is well-balanced, and offers tools to help Christians build rich relationships with other followers of Christ outside of their own faith community without discounting or giving up the distinctives of their faith community.
