When Doctrine Divides the People of God
When Doctrine Divides the People of God: An Evangelical Approach to Theological Diversity
By Rhyne R Putman
An Excellent Study on Christian Unity and Doctrinal Diversity
"This helpful book will encourage Christians to hold their convictions with greater irenicism, humility, awareness, and wisdom.” —Gavin Ortlund, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church of Ojai; author, Finding the Right Hills to Die On
As evangelicals, we desire to be biblical—we want our doctrine to be rooted in the Bible, our lives to be guided by the Bible, and our disagreements to be resolved by the Bible. And yet, conflicts within our church communities continue to appear and seemingly multiply with time. Interpretations of the Bible and deeply held convictions often put Christians at odds. Encouraging us toward grace in disagreement and firmness in truth, Rhyne Putman reflects on how Christians can maintain the biblical call for unity despite having genuine disagreements.
