A great introduction to the Church of the Nazarene. This book shows how and where the Church of the Nazarene fits into the broader Christian world. Ingersoll and Tracy offer a clear comparison/contrast for the Church of the Nazarene vis-a-vis other denominations. The authors are respectful of other views, but still clearly state the Nazarene position. ( )

You probably meet them every day. At the grocery store. On the highway. In your neighborhood. They come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. But they are a global community, and they are held together by a bond of faith. They are Nazarenes. And they share a dream. Around the turn of the 19th century, the Holiness Movement blossomed in America. Wesleyan-Holiness denominations sprang up all over the country. In 1907-08, five of these joined together to form the Church of the Nazarene. The dream that drew the founders together was a believers’ church in the Wesleyan tradition. It is the same dream that guides the Church of the Nazarene today. But how does that translate into a world where denominational lines don’t seem to matter as much as they used to? How is a Nazarene different from a Presbyterian, Baptist, or Pentecostal brother or sister in Christ? What Is a Nazarene?, the abridged version of the book Here We Stand, answers those questions in concise, easy-to-understand terms, as it examines the similarities and differences between the Church of the Nazarene and other mainline Christian denominations. With refreshing insight and candor, What Is a Nazarene? will acquaint you with the heritage that birthed a vision that made a dream come true. Paper.
