Respected Disciples Michael Kinnamon and Jan Linn propose reclaiming the Disciples movement's identity in a way that encourages reform of worship, relationships, and mission. With praise for the founding leaders' willingness "to follow their vision of what it meant to be church in their own time in history," the authors call on the denomination to do the same today, not in order to survive as an institution, but in order to enhance the church's participation in God's mission of peacemaking and compassionate service. Kinnamon and Linn explore the Disciples' historic commitment to covenant and claim that heritage as a tool for addressing current issues such as money, minister licensing, homosexuality, the future of seminaries, and more.

About the Author:

Michael Kinnamon is the ninth General Secretary of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA. From 2000-2007 he was the Allen and Dottie Miller Professor of Mission and Peace at Eden Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri.
Jan Linn is co-pastor of Spirit of Joy Christian Church, Apple Valley, Minnesota. He is the author of several books from Chalice Press, including How to Be an Open-minded Christian without Losing Your Faith, Rocking the Church Membership Boat, The Jesus Connection, and Reclaiming Evangelism.

Review:

"If you don t know where you have been, you will have a hard time discovering where you ought to go. Every institution, family, nation, religion, has a unique story that defines its essence, and each new generation must hear it. Without these stories little hope can be generated for the development of a common future-oriented covenant. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has a story. Linn and Kinnamon tell it, and use it as a way to point to what they see to be a vital future. While not uncritical of the denomination s current malaise, they devoutly maintain that our best days are still to come." ---Charles Bayer, coordinator for Progressive Christians Uniting and author of Reclaiming the Christian Faith
