Item description for Faithful Disagreement: Wrestling with Scripture in the Midst of Church Conflict by Frances Taylor Gench...

Overview
Conflict is all too common in the church today. But as Frances Taylor Gench reminds us in this book, conflict over scriptural interpretation has been with the church since its earliest days. Gench reflects on those early experiences of conflict, presenting substantive studies of biblical texts showing that discord (e.g., Rom. 1415; Matt. 14; Jer. 28; 1 Cor. 1214; John 1317) and drawing lessons from each about how it informs current conflicts in the church. In the process, she provides a constructive resource to help Christians wrestle with Scripture when they disagree. This innovative book can be used by individuals and in groups. Numerous helpful study questions conclude each chapter.
