Item description for Same Jesus...Same Church? by Donald Samsel...
If you have ever wondered why we have so many Christian denominations, there is a simple answer. We, as a body of believers, have a paradox within our desire to understand and follow the Bible. Denominations have been formed under the guise of scriptural purity while the philosophy or directions upon which denominational divisions have been fostered are anything but scripturally sound. There is something just wrong with this ecclesiastical picture. This book starts off with a simple but daunting question from the author?s daughter: ?Don?t they all believe in the Same Jesus?? It continues by scripturally analyzing denominationalism and its failure to Jesus and His Church. If you believe that the denominational structure of today?s Church is not a plus for the Kingdom of Heaven, this book is a must read. The book presents a solution to this dilemma, a solution that was also given to us 2000 years ago by our Same Jesus.

Are denominational splits ever worth the conflict? Feb 26, 2006
This book is not about the differences between denominations, but about the flawed thinking that drives the conflict creating denominational differences. If you're looking for an anthology, this isn't where to find it. But if you want to think about what it means to love those who think differently, to agree to disagree, and put the priority back on relationship instead of religiosity, Mr. Samsel makes some important points to ponder.
Most disappointing book I've ever read Oct 22, 2001
I was looking for a book that discussed the different denominations and the history, beliefs, and style of worship of each one -- a comparison. It is beyond me how a person could run on about denominationalism for 218 pages and not mention how the denomonations are different. A complete waste of TIME.
