The 4-volume Perspectives Series from Broadman & Holman has been crafted to tackle the particular issues which have been a source of conflict and division throughout the history of the church. From baptism to election, from church polity to worship style, these volumes contain chapters written by pastors and scholars who hold views divergent from one another, and who seek to find points of mutual understanding and resolution.
This series contains more than twenty contributions from pastors and scholars such as Jack W. Cottrell, Walter C. Kaiser, Dan Kimball, Clark H. Pinnock, and James R. White. Each book contains chapters written by prominent representatives from various theological traditions, along with responses by other contributors. In each book, the authors engage the topic at hand, and react graciously and honestly to other perspectives. The resulting collection permits each perspective to speak for itself, and invites readers to listen in on a conversation between some of the church’s most eloquent and gifted thinkers. These books not only contain insightful wisdom on today’s most hotly contested topics, but also serve as a model for how Christians can engage one another and address conflicting perspectives in the church.
