    One thought on “Renewing God's People: A Concise History of Churches of Christ”

    1. Excellent! As a Church of Christ member, I highly recommend this concise history of the movement. The authors trace our origins (as a movement towards Christian unity!) from the 1800s until today. I especially enjoyed their description of how Stone and Campbell put their differences aside for the good of the church.

    2. "Too many times we have been content with restoring the structure of the church and have neglected the weightier matters of justice, Mercy, and faithfulness." This concise look at our church history shows what our founders original intentions were and how we are continuing to strive toward the Christian unity they once dreamt of. We still have work to do!

    3. About the 2006 edition: Good general history of the Church of Christ side of the Restoration Movement that challenges the readers to rethink "doctrines" that have been culturally influenced. However, there are some disadvantages. Its brief overview of the Early Church to the Protestant Reformation classically blames political government only rather than church leaders for the church's direction. It also doesn't admit the likelihood that the time gap between the First Century Church and the prese [...]

    4. Helpful, concise history of the Churches of Christ. Especially appreciated Holloway and Foster's ability to draw meaningful connections between the restoration movements and today. I also was rather challenged by their vision for the future. Well worth the read.
