Product Description

Heal the church by rediscovering a generous orthodoxy.

At times, a denomination is able to remain viable despite divergent understandings of holiness, and the church can accomplish its mission regardless of believers’ differences. Other times, those differences cause fragmentation and division with each side doing harm to the other. In Embracing the Wideness, author Kenneth H. Carter, Jr. discusses two distinct conceptions of church within the United Methodist denomination: a separatist church which views holiness as a calling and an activist church which sees holiness as a movement to change an unjust world. He challenges readers to accept a “generous orthodoxy” to avoid becoming immersed in the emotional processes that pit people against one another and to acknowledge the miraculous source of our capacity to be healed of our schisms.
