Christianity's Family Tree

Adam Hamilton

Christianity's Family Tree

Adam Hamilton

$19.99

Paperback

This book is excellent for individual reading or can be used as the small group study book for the Christianity's Family Tree DVD based study.

Adam Hamilton is, in my opinion, a national treasure. He embodies the kind of generous orthodoxy so many of us have been dreaming of and praying for. This book provides something truly unique-a kind of orientation to Christianity in its wide array of forms that not only educates but inspires. It's one of the few books I wish every single Christian would read and share with their friends.
     - Brian McLaren, author of
A New Kind of Christian

In this wise and practical book, Adam Hamilton serves as a trusted guide to some of the rich diversity of Christian belief and practice. It is a rare feat to acknowledge differences and distinctiveness appreciatively, and Hamilton does it with exceptional grace and insight.
     - L. Gregory Jones, Dean and Professor of Theology, Duke Divinity School

I love this book. Adam Hamilton teaches us that we are far richer than we know, because the beauty and the fullness of the whole church is ours. Read, learn, and be happy.
     - John Ortberg, author of God Is Closer Than You Think

In this book, Adam Hamilton presents a welcoming, inspiring vision of eight Christian denominations and faith traditions. Comparing the Christian family to our own extended families, he contends that each denomination has a unique, valuable perspective to offer on the Christian faith.

The traditions he examines are Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, Anglicanism, Baptists, Pentecostalism, and Methodism. For each group, Hamilton gives a brief history, outlines major beliefs, and describes some things we can learn from that tradition to strengthen our own Christian faith.

Also available is the planning kit for this video-based small-group study Christianity's Family Tree: What Other Christians Believe and Why.

Adam Hamilton is pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, one of the fastest growing, most highly visible churches in the country. Named by PBS's Religion and Ethics Newsweekly as one of the top Ten People to Watch, Hamilton is the author of numersous video based small group studies and books from Abingdon Press.
