W Paul Jones

$41.99

Paperback
Jones examines the existence and character of theological diversity within congregations and shows how such diversity can be a positive factor. "Worlds Within a Congregation" can help readers understand how this diversity shapes the preferred ways of doing a number of things in the ministry of a congregation, such as worship, mission, service and interaction.

- Publisher In Worlds Within a Congregation, W. Paul Jones follows up on his previous work, Theological Worlds, in a most practical way. He argues that many congregations are composed of sub- congregations, not in a divisive way, but simply as a congregant's preferred way of worshiping, interacting, being engaged in service projects, and so forth. Jones suggests that this struggle with theological diversity in congregations is something to be understood and embraced, rather than fled from as a grounds of division, and show how, by understanding the different variations in a congregation, one can better minister with and to the congregation.
