The Missional Church and Denominations: Helping Congregations Develop a Missional Identity
Craig Van Gelder (editor).
Eerdmans Series: Missional Church Series. 2008
The Missional Church and Denominations utilizes the missional church conversation as a lens for engaging an important dimension of church life in the United States — denominations and denominationalism.
Denominations have been studied from a wide variety of perspectives, including historical, sociological, and theological, but they have yet to be engaged in light of a missional church understanding. Here each essay helps to bring further clarity to the word “missional” and contributes to the ever-widening conversation.
