Where is mainline Protestantism headed?
Today’s mainline Protestant denominations seem as theologically liberal as ever. But the real story of change in the mainline today is how confessing and renewal movements are crossing denominational lines to infuse new life into these traditions.
Turning Around the Mainline carefully chronicles the roots and history of these evangelical and orthodox renewal movements. Thomas Oden lays out the current issues and major themes of each movement and addresses the concern many confessing churches are facing today: what property rights they have in disputes with their denominations.
