About "Free Church, Free State"
Free Church, Free State is a text book on baptist ways of being church and a proposal for the future of baptist churches in an ecumenical context. Nigel Wright argues that both baptist and catholic church traditions should seek to enrich and support each other as valid expressions of the body of Christ without sacrificing what they hold dear.Written for pastors, church planters, evangelists and preachers, this text offers frameworks of thought for baptists and nonbaptists in their journey together following Christ.
