Overview

This is a book of protest! Its author is deeply opposed to the division of God's family over human opinions and deductions from the sacred scriptures. He holds that any use of the written word to defeat the purpose of the Living Word is abuse and misuse, and can only come by twisting the divine revelation.

In the book you will be treated to a candid and careful examination of passages which have been used to sanction, condone or justify fragmentation of the Body of Christ by religious partisans. The plea for unity of all believers in Christ upon the basis of trust in Him as the Son of God and the Lord of life runs like a thread throughout the volume. The exposition of the sacred scriptures will appeal to you by its sincerity and simplicity, as well as by its lack of sectarian manipulation. Biblical truths will become evident to your mind and God will be glorified in your heart.

About the Author

William Carl Ketcherside (May 10, 1908 – May 25, 1989) is best known for his efforts to unite Christians who are divided because of their view that spiritual fellowship is synonymous with endorsement of doctrinal interpretations. He was convinced that true followers of Jesus Christ are constitutionally one; not called to unity so much as called to maintain the unity they already have due to the common life they share with the Holy Spirit and, thus, with each other. Those who have the same spiritual father are necessarily brothers and sisters of one another, whether they know it or not. It is because of much confusion about the nature and work of the Holy Spirit that Ketcherside considered a clear understanding in this regard essential to understanding the nature of unity and spiritual fellowship among Christians. At heart Ketcherside was an ecumenist who believed visible unity among believers to be the key to converting the world to Christ. Ketcherside was a prolific writer and a gifted speaker. He spent the better part of his life residing in St. Louis, Missouri, from where he edited a monthly journal, Mission Messenger, from 1940 through the end of 1975. He traveled extensively, speaking often on university campuses across the U.S. and at numerous conferences in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Brazil.
