Overview

Today's mainline Protestant denominations are more theologically liberal than ever before. So it may come as a surprise that renewal movements are a growing trend, together crossing denominational lines to reshape worship and revitalize evangelicalism. Turning Around the Mainline brings together for the first time an introduction to the issues, themes, and documents of the mainline churches and renewal movements, and a practical case study of the most relevant issue of the day- the property rights of churches. For pastors, church leaders, and anyone wanting a better understanding of the changing dynamics of evangelicalism, this comprehensive study will articulate the worldviews of confessing Christians and survey the workings of the renewal movements to provide clarity, civil discourse, and charity in further dialogue.
