About-

One Lord, One Faith is a plea and plan to re-envision the Church as a broad, cross-denominational community with a shared faith in the Christ of the Gospel. It both affirms the place and inevitability of individual denominational traditions, and also provides a grid from which to distinguish those denominational traditions from the core of historical orthodoxy shared by the entire Christian community. The book seeks to distinguish denominationalism from sectarianism, and identifies sectarianism as the true enemy of historic catholicity.

Endorsements & Reviews-

American churches urgently need the kind of ecumenical thinking that Rex Koivisto develops in this book.
--J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College

Rex Koivisto's One Lord, One Faith is tantamount to a burning wick on a stick of ideological dynamite. Should the church allow the implications of this work to filter down to the grass-roots level, we could well see the flames of a great awakening sweep across our country. I enthusiastically recommend this watershed work.
--Joseph C. Aldrich, President Emeritus, Multnomah University

Our unity is in Christ and our divisions must be faced and faced squarely. We urgently need spiritual renewal, churchwide and worldwide. This book by Dr. Koivisto, colorful and creative in its review of church history, lends an intelligent and warm hand to such desperately needed renewal.
--Luis Palau, International Evangelist

Rex Koivisto has written a stimulating book arguing against sectarianism and promoting unity without uniformity--the word of ecumenists since Baxter and Zinzendorf. This book will be especially helpful to evangelical Christians impressed by the role of Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, and mainline Protestant churches of Europe in the defeat of world communism. It appears that we are playing on a team that is larger than we thought. How shall we conceive of our relationship to the rest of Christ's body? Koivisto has some interesting answers.
--Richard Lovelace, Emeritus Professor of Church History, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

This is a tour de force, challenging Evangelicals (and others) to serious reflection on true Catholicity. Koivisto's research is impeccable (the footnotes alone are worth the price of the book), and his argument is compelling. This is a long overdue volume, attention to which could stimulate fresh thinking and biblical reformation in the church.
--Carl Armerding, former President and Professor of Old Testament, Regent College
