Christian unity is counter-cultural. We are dynamically diverse across cultures, races, denominations and temperaments. Yet together we enjoy all the certainties and privileges of belonging to God and to a reconciled community. We need to confront issues of division, and develop a greater eagerness to grow and maintain unity. This book offers crucial biblical and practical help. It emphasizes the attitudes and practical behaviour that overcome division and enable us to live authentically as the new society which God intends. We are 'essentially one', for the sake of God's honour and glory, and for the global spread of the message of the gospel.
