Publishers Description
The Evolution of a UCC Style focuses on the development of themes that define the United Church of Christ (UCC). Walker examines the ethos and culture of the UCC rather than simply describing its structures, and addresses the themes of inclusiveness, diversity of theological heritage (Reformation, Enlightenment, and Pietism), congregational polity (the one and the many), liberal theological approach, and ecumenical spirit. She also takes a look at the tensions and boundaries contained within each theme.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Evolution Of A UCC Style: History, Ecclesiology, And Culture Of The United Church Of Christ?

An excellent overview  Apr 4, 2007
Randi Walker gives an excellent overview of the present United Church of Christ and it's evolution over the past fifty years. She grasps how the apparently disparate groups forming the UCC have come together to create the present "heady mix" that is the United Church of Christ. In light of the 2007 Golden Anniversary of the Uniting Synod, this book should be studied in every UCC congregation and polity class in the nation.
 
The best we have to date!  Oct 17, 2006
Following in the line of several who have attempted to give a comprehensive review of UCC history, this effort carries the process one step further, not only bringing that history up to date, but seeking to show what makes the United Church of Christ distinctive. This, according to the reviewer who is lifelong UCC, is accomplished in sterling fashion -- drawing attention to present challenges, but also underlining enduring strengths. This is a must for those interested in "deciphering the code" of the denomination.
 
Much Ado about Something  Jul 1, 2006
I enjoyed Ms. Walker's treatment, especially the synthesis of historic strands contributing to the present United Church of Christ. However, I would have appreciated a slightly more succinct presentation. While each new chapter's review of previous chapters was helpful, it seemed a bit excessive. It was not always easy to discern the conclusion of each chapter - sometimes, one was left with the impression that the end was near, only to have the text take off again for another twenty pages. However, generally I found Ms. Walker's book fascinating and helpful. Most UCC-ers will enjoy her work and learn from it.
