Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0834115999, Paperback)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.
