Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761804374, Hardcover)This book critiques the Homogeneous Unit Principle (HUP) theory, challenges its fundamental thesis and offers an alternative pattern for churches to follow. First, the HUP theory is presented in its summary form. It is defined, explained, and its concepts are thoroughly documented. Second, the debate that has surrounded the controversial perspective is examined both in its historical and current context. The formal discussion which is represented by the Pasadena Report, as well as ensuing literature from both supporters and skeptics are examined. Third, the 'mutual acceptance' philosophy, a Biblical/Theological alternative for church development and mission, is presented. The issue of sanctification is applied to a church strategy for development and missions outreach. Finally, the 'mutual acceptance' philosophy is applied both to the church situation and to missions as a Biblically responsible approach to bringing the Gospel to the world. Several realistic models are presented for churches in many different types of situations and circumstances. Real examples of churches making an impact on the problem of racism and need for Biblical koinonia are examined and joined with creative ideas and suggestions for church development.
