Discovering Our Roots$16.99Add to cart
This rich and challenging book explores the roots or ancestry of the Churches of Christ and others who stand as heirs to the Stone-Campbell movement of the early nineteenth century. It asks, “Where did we come from? How did we get this way? Why do we read the Bible the way we do? What has been the heart of our movement?” And it asks further,”What can we learn from those who have viewed restoration of apostolic Christianity in ways quite different from our own?”
The authors begin their story in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries – the age of Renaissance and Reformation. They isolate the stream of restorationist thought that arose in that age and then follow that stream through the Puritans, the early Baptists in America, the frenzy of pure beginnings in the early decades of American nationhood, and down to the Stone-Campbell movement.
Models For Christian Higher Education A Print On Demand Title$43.99Add to cart
This timely look at the state of Christian higher education in America contains descriptive, historical narratives that explore how fourteen Christian colleges and universities are successfully integrating faith and learning on their campuses despite the challenges posed by the increasingly pluralistic nature of modern culture. Written by respected representatives from seven major faith traditions – Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Mennonite, Evangelical, Wesleyan/Holiness, and Baptist/Restorationist – these narratives are also preceded by introductory essays that define the worldview and theological heritage of each given tradition and ask what that tradition can contribute to the task of higher education.
