Item description for What Is a Nazarene?: Understanding Our Place in the Religious Community by Wesley D. Tracy, Wes/Ingersol Tracy & Stan Ingersol...

Overview
You probably meet them every day. At the grocery store. On the highway. In your neighborhood. They come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. But they are a global community, and they are held together by a bond of faith. They are Nazarenes. And they share a dream. Around the turn of the 19th century, the Holiness Movement blossomed in America. Wesleyan-Holiness denominations sprang up all over the country. In 1907-08, five of these joined together to form the Church of the Nazarene. The dream that drew the founders together was a believers' church in the Wesleyan tradition. It is the same dream that guides the Church of the Nazarene today. But how does that translate into a world where denominational lines don't seem to matter as much as they used to? How is a Nazarene different from a Presbyterian, Baptist, or Pentecostal brother or sister in Christ? What Is a Nazarene?, the abridged version of the book Here We Stand , answers those questions in concise, easy-to-understand terms, as it examines the similarities and differences between the Church of the Nazarene and other mainline Christian denominations. With refreshing insight and candor, What Is a Nazarene? will acquaint you with the heritage that birthed a vision that made a dream come true.

Reviews - What do customers think about What Is a Nazarene?: Understanding Our Place in the Religious Community?

Great Introduction  Jun 25, 2004
This book is a great introduction to what the Church of the Nazarene is all about. It gives a brief historical overview and treatment of the denomination's beliefs. Most of the book, however, is taken up by a comparison of the Church of the Nazarene with other Christian denominations and presents a solid introduction to each without passing judgement. This is a great book for those looking for a quick introduction as well as for long-time members looking for a reminder of what the Nazarenes are all about.
