Item description for The Quest For Unity: AN APPEAL FOR ONENESS AMONG ALL BELIEVERS IN CHRIST by Gene Shelburne, Nora Ephron, John L. Esposito, David O'Brien & Chester Gillis...
Overview "As Jesus neared the end of his life, he prayed for the unity of all who believe in him: "I pray...that all of them may be one...that the world may believe that you have sent me" (John 17:20-23). Have we answered that prayer? Not by a long shot! I am astonished that Jesus put the fulfillment of his prayer for unity in the hands of the flawed, fractious people like us. But he did. Unity - the answer to Jesus' prayer - is what this book is about. I knew early on that the author had a lover's quarrel with his heritage.

For Every Christian Tired of Division Dec 1, 2004
Author Gene Shelburne presents a powerful case for oneness among all believers and shows the folly of Christians maintaining separateness over differences in biblical interpretation or denominational practice. After digesting this clear and easy-to-understand treatise, readers will realize that the enemy is not the rival denomination down the street, but a primeval adversary to whom Christians must present a united front if the name of Christ is to achieve its full effect in our deteriorating world. This book is a "must-read" for every Christian interested in breaking out of separatism, and for every church leader who wants to do his part in seeing the body of Christ grow healthy and strong.
--Thomas Williams, co-author (with Josh McDowell) of In Search of Certainty
