Item description for Diversity in Faith--Unity in Christ by Shirley C. Jr. Guthrie & Jack L. Stotts...
Overview Shirley C. Guthrie looks at what it really means to be a Christian, and why people of good faith cannot agree on many current social and theological issues. He describes four different classifications that serve as the basis for discussion: orthodoxy, two kinds of liberalism, and pietism. He evaluates them and suggests ways to incorporate the strengths and weaknesses of each.
Why is it that people who read the same Bible and talk about the same Christ, even when they belong to the same church, have trouble getting along with each other and committing themselves to a common witness in the world? In this highly original book, Shirley Guthrie looks at these questions and provides a framework that will help Christians better understand their own beliefs, learn from each other, and be more open to working for greater union in addressing serious issues.

Understand and Value the Different Ways of Following Christ Dec 17, 2000
From the cover of the book: "Why is it that people who read the same Bible and talk about the same Christ, even when they belong to the same church, have trouble getting along with each other and committing themselves to a common witness in the world?"
This book helped me see why others approach their faith different from the way I approach mine, and how we should value our differences instead of trying to change each other's mind!
