Turning Around the Mainline

Thomas C Oden

$27.99

Paperback
Where is mainline Protestantism headed?

Today's mainline Protestant denominations seem as theologically liberal as ever. But the real story of change in the mainline today is how confessing and renewal movements are crossing denominational lines to infuse new life into these traditions.

TURNING AROUND THE MAINLINE carefully chronicles the roots and history of these evangelical and orthodox renewal movements. Thomas Oden lays out the current issues and major themes of each movement and addresses the concern many confessing churches are facing today: what property rights they have in disputes with their denominations.


- Publisher Today's mainline Protestant denominations are more theologically liberal than ever before. So it may come as a surprise that renewal movements are a growing trend, together crossing denominational lines to reshape worship and revitalize evangelicalism. Turning Around the Mainline brings together for the first time an introduction to the issues, themes, and documents of the mainline churches and renewal movements, and a practical case study of the most relevant issue of the day: the property rights of churches. For pastors, church leaders, and anyone wanting a better understanding of the changing dynamics of evangelicalism, this comprehensive study will articulate the worldviews of confessing Christians and survey the workings of the renewal movements to provide clarity, civil discourse, and charity in further dialogue.

- Publisher Chronicles the amazing story of evangelical renewal movements within mainline Protestantism that are returning churches to orthodoxy.
