Viewed in its history, the United Church of Christ offers a diversity of theological heritage (Reformation, Enlightenment, and Pietism), congregational and presbyterian polities, liberal theological approaches, all stirred with an ecumenical spirit. Walker instead focuses on the ethos and culture of the UCC to offer "the evolution of a UCC style," while acknowledging the tensions and boundaries.
Randi J. Walker is associate professor of church history at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California, and an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ.
The Evolution of a UCC Style focuses on the development of themes that define the United Church of Christ (UCC). Walker examines the ethos and culture of the UCC rather than simply describing its structures, and addresses the themes of inclusiveness, diversity of theological heritage (Reformation, Enlightenment, and Pietism), congregational polity (the one and the many), liberal theological approach, and ecumenical spirit. She also takes a look at the tensions and boundaries contained within each theme.
