David Rhoads examines the four Gospels and the letter to Galatians and finds a suprising amount of material that relates to diversity. By looking at these passages, and explaining their relevance to contemporary Christianity, Rhoads hopes to create better understanding of diversity, thus facilitating respect for differing Christian groups. The volume also includes a study guide, references for further reading, and suggestions for parish study. David Rhoads is Professor of New Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago.
The Challenge of Diversity argues that the present diversity in the church reflects a rich variety that was integral to the early Christian movement from its very beginnings. Rhoads shows how Galatians, Mark, Matthew, Luke and John each present a fundamentally different understanding of the human condition, a different vision for life under God, and a different portrayal of our transformation.
