Publisher's Description

Authentic community is essential if the church is to remain true to its God-assigned mission. As the title indicates, the interrelated concepts of community and oneness are presented in this book. Gilbert Bilezikian lays a biblical foundation for this call to community by showing the centrality of community in the sweep of salvation history -- its loss in the Fall, its reclamation through Christ, and its ultimate realization in the New Jerusalem. Bilezikian proceeds to describe how community can be expressed in the daily life of the church, from small groups to various forms of ministry to church leadership. Focusing on oneness, this book presents a paradigm that can renew the vision of the church in this postmodern society and confirm the authenticity of its message. Authentic community is essential if the church is to remain true to its God-assigned mission. As the title indicates, the two interrelated concepts of community and oneness are presented in this book. Gilbert Bilezikian lays a biblical foundation for this call to community by showing the centrality of community in the sweep of salvation history - its loss in the Fall, its reclamation through Christ, and its ultimate realization in the New Jerusalem.

    the cover hides a very well written and challenging read...in the sense that he is a very convincing and unique thinker who has taken the understanding of scripture to a new level.

    worth the read.

    The positive contributions of this book, in my view, outweigh the negatives. Dr. B's teaching on oneness in the church as rooted in the oneness of the Trinity is superb and his teaching on Christ-like use of authority is beneficial for any Christian leader. The book is very readable--interesting and understandable. I take issue with his interpretations of the NT passages regarding the limits of a woman's role in church leadership and his extra-biblical paradigm of two church structures (normative and remedial). However, he is one of the most well spoken advocates of the egalitarian view among evangelicals and his interpretations are worth reading and critically evaluating.

    Absolutely wonderful book! This one made theological issues fun again. Dr. B's explanations of hierarchy, women in the body of Christ, and two different church models in the New Testament are thought provoking. The appendix on hierarchy in the Trinity is worth the price of the book.
