"A house divided cannot stand. The New Testament continually urges that our Heavenly Father wants us in harmony. By one Spirit we are baptized into one body. A Church walking in love and forgiveness is the priestly prayer of Christ himself. Only then will we be equipped to fulfill the Great Commission. Based solidly on biblical orthodoxy, this selection of practical wisdom from various theological viewpoints outlines the strategic imperative for 'unity in diversity.'"

"Michael Meiring guides this dialogue on the unity of the Christian Church believing that, like-minded but not necessarily agreeing, Christians should dialogue because of their shared unity in the Spirit. With his usual perception he never lets up asking the right questions which lead to the diverse views expressed in this book. These views will impact the reader, prodding and stimulate continued discussion among thinking Christians."

"Preserving Evangelical Unity invites conversation on the key theme of the unity (and disunity) of the church through the contribution of evangelical scholars. In the South African context, as elsewhere, the visible disunity among churches has impaired their prophetic witness. The value of this book lies in the fact that it does not seek cheap unity by avoiding tough doctrinal differences. Even for those who may not agree with the theological presuppositions underlying this volume, Preserving Evangelical Unity will certainly challenge and instruct."
