It is a unity which, as Murray says, “binds his [Christ’s] members together in love” (Evangelicalism Divided, page ).   Preach the political power of justification by faith alone, which is the source of the church’s spiritual and political (not partisan) unity. Point to the church as the political hope of the nations and where we find our primary identity together in .

Book Description. Why has Christian unity proved to be such a divisive topic? In the s two movements- evangelicalism and ecumenism- offered differing paths to unity in the church.

Many pastors, even aspiring ones, can fall. Episkop and Episcopacy and the Quest for Visible Unity Book Summary: Agreement on the ministry is one of the most elusive facets of the search for the visible unity of the church. And among the differences which separate churches in this area, one of the hardest to resolve is how the ministry of oversight or episkope is exercised.
