Max Lucado and Gene Appel embody the new engagement between the
Stone-Campbell Movement and evangelicalism. Lucado is Americas
bestselling Christian writer; and Appel was recently appointed successor
to Bill Hybels at Willow Creek, Americas largest and most influential
evangelical church. Both men have deep Stone-Campbell Movement roots.
The Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement is a two-hundred-year-old
tradition made up of three sub-traditions: Churches of Christ (a
cappella), Christian Churches (independent), and Disciples of Christ.
Churches of Christ (a cappella) and Christian Churches (independent)
especially, are increasingly engaging both each another and the
evangelical world. As this engagement continues, suspicions and
misconceptions are giving way, and foundational theological issues are
being explored together. This important volume continues the
dialogue that began with the first volume of Evangelicalism and the
Stone-Campbell Movement (InterVarsity Press 2002). Volume 2 focuses on
the basic doctrines of God, Christ, the Lords Supper, eschatology and
Scripture. Responses from noted evangelical scholars show how
Stone-Campbell thought both corresponds with and departs from
evangelical thought. Everyone concerned with Christian unity and
theological soundness in a time of shakeup and realignment on the
Christian landscape will find rich thought and provocative discussion in
this volume. Contributors include: Jack Cottrell, John Sanders,
