Dynamic Diversity contends that all Christian congregations everywhere are called to be bridging places, centers of reconciliation, where the major diversities separating human beings are overcome through the presence of God's Holy Spirit. Bruce Milne presents a biblical model for today and tomorrow where the diversities of gender, generation, ethnicity, colour and socioeconomic status present exciting and challenging opportunities to demonstrate practical oneness. When this happens, churches become wonderfully alive. In Christ we can be one people, one new humanity, one life. Market/Audience Bruce Milne readers Missionaries Multiethnic churches, ministries and networks Pastors Students Endorsements "Here is an invitation worth accepting, to rethink church and bring it more in line with God's heart and purpose." DR. DEREK TIDBALL, principal, London School of Theology "There is a way to do church that captures the vibrancy of global community and builds bridges among all people. Bruce Milne demonstrates dynamic and practical ways to do just that." DR. DAVID ANDERSON, author of Gracism: The Art of Inclusion Features and Benefits Counteracts contemporary secular notions of diversity and human community Features biblical, theological, historical and cultural support for a Christian model of diversity Offers excellent practical suggestions for embracing Christian diversity in the local congregation

It is time to revisit the central New Testament claim that in Jesus Christ a new quality of human relationship is possible. Bruce Milne builds on this claim to contend that all Christian congregations are called to be centers of reconciliation, where the principal differences separating human beings are overcome through the presence of God's Holy Spirit.

From the footpaths of our cities to the chatrooms of the Internet, people are connecting today as never before. As the planet shrinks through the multiple forces of immigration, travel, electronic communication and more fluid employment patterns, we will find ourselves increasingly forced into contact with those who are significantly different from ourselves. Sadly however, the stranger is often a threat to be resisted rather than a friend to be embraced.In this context of in-your-face diversity, it is time to revisit the heart of the New Testament, with its claim that in Jesus Christ a new quality of human relationship is possible. In his letter to the Ephesians, the apostle Paul claims that Christians are a new kind of people, part of a new community: a 'new humanity' in Christ (Ephesians 2:15). We exist not in isolation, but in relationship.Dynamic Diversitycontends that all Christian congregations everywhere are called to be bridging places, centres of reconciliation, where the major diversities separating human beings are overcome through the presence of God's Holy Spirit.Bruce Milne presents a biblical model for today and tomorrow where the diversities of gender, generation, ethnicity, color and socio-economic status present exciting and challenging opportunities to demonstrate practical oneness. When this happens, churches become wonderfully alive. In Christ we can be one people, one new humanity, one life.
