really liked it
bookshelves: christianity, congregational-studies

A must-read for Protestants and Protestant-influenced American traditions interested in the theological whys and wherefores of building multi-ethnic, multicultural, multiclass, multigenerational churches.

DeYmaz carefully draws readers' attention to the church of Acts 11 and beyond and to the many other Biblical mandates to diverse church.

Whether or not one is a Biblical literalist, his arguments are clear and paint compelling pictures about the many in the one church. Liberal religionists have just as much to gain as DeYmaz' more traditionalist audience in deepening understanding of the texts, the cultural traditions and the assumptions that have been passed on to promote monocultural American churches and what visions we need to be inspired to be transformed.
