Product Description

Believing that all Christian congregations are "bridging centers," Milne proposes a biblical model for reconciliation where diversities in gender, generation, ethnicity, color, and socioeconomic status offer opportunities for practical oneness on the local level. Overcoming differences through the presence of the Holy Spirit brings new life to the church---and a "new humanity" to the world. 192 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

From the footpaths of our cities to the chatrooms of the Internet, people are connecting today as never before. As the planet shrinks through the multiple forces of immigration, travel, electronic communication and more fluid employment patterns, we will find ourselves increasingly forced into contact with those who are significantly different from ourselves. Sadly however, the stranger is often a threat to be resisted rather than a friend to be embraced. In this context of in-your-face diversity, it is time to revisit the heart of the New Testament, with its claim that in Jesus Christ a new quality of human relationship is possible. In his letter to the Ephesians, the apostle Paul claims that Christians are a new kind of people, part of a new community: a 'new humanity' in Christ (Ephesians 2:15). We exist not in isolation, but in relationship. Dynamic Diversity contends that all Christian congregations everywhere are called to be bridging places, centres of reconciliation, where the major diversities separating human beings are overcome through the presence of God's Holy Spirit. Bruce Milne presents a biblical model for today and tomorrow where the diversities of gender, generation, ethnicity, color and socio- economic status present exciting and challenging opportunities to demonstrate practical oneness. When this happens, churches become wonderfully alive. In Christ we can be one people, one new humanity, one life.

Editorial Reviews

"Of the many books I've read on this subject, Milne's by far is one of the most biblically comprehensive and compelling. When I picked it up, I didn't need to be any more convinced that the church exists to model the new humanity that Christ has made possible. After finishing this well-thought-out work, I'm not only more convinced of this divine mandate, I'm even more excited to proclaim it and pursue it. I love this book!"
"There is a way to do church that captures the vibrancy of global community and builds bridges among all people. Bruce Milne demonstrates dynamic and practical ways to do just that."
"This is an invaluable, scholarly and accessible tool for all leaders and thinking Christians who want to grapple with the challenges and privileges of holding unity in diversity."
"Whether we are complacent conservatives or radical misfits, here is an invitation worth accepting to rethink church and bring it more in line with God's heart and purpose."
