Item description for A Heritage in Crisis: Where We've Been, Where We Are, and Where We're Going in the Churches of Christ by Ralph K. Hawkins...

Overview
The Churches in Christ are in growing disagreement about the direction that the Restoration Movement should take. A Heritage in Crisis introduces the background of this "identity crisis," evaluates nine specific issues that threaten to divide the Churches of Christ today--such as worship styles and women's roles--and suggests changes Churches in Christ can make in order to facilitate the change back to God's original intent for the church. More than simply an academic examination of doctrinal issues, A Heritage in Crisis seeks to identify a path by which the Churches of Christ might move into a future illuminated by the light of God's Word.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Heritage in Crisis: Where We've Been, Where We Are, and Where We're Going in the Churches of Christ?

Interesting reading for the open minded Christian  Nov 27, 2001
This book was thoughtful, provocative, innovative, and progressive in its ideas. The history was well researched and well presented. It is a book designed to break the barriers that modern day Christians have put up for the church.

Dr. Hawkins presents the traditional ideas of the church, where they originated, and why they are there. Then, he explains the historical reasons for the ideas that we have and the Biblical reasoning for the traditions that are sometimes lost in today's generation. This book is meant for those who are concerned with the present day church and how it is supposed to be.

The main theme throughout is UNITY. How nice it is to see unity of the church presented in such a logical, loving way. I wish more pastors were educated in the history of church traditions, why we have some of the traditions we have, and how they apply to the twenty-first century church. It is only through unity that we can truly become the church that we were meant to be.
