Can Churches of Christ Be Saved?
At the turn of the millennium, Reclaiming a Heritage, a small book with a powerful message, examined the future and changing identity of Churches of Christ, exploring the rich biblical resources that once anchored this tradition and could anchor it still. However, many in Churches of Christ have become increasingly comfortable wearing cultural blinders, resulting in a distortion of the movement’s original vision. This new edition of Reclaiming a Heritage invites Christians to consider a radical answer from the past—that true of disciples of Jesus must vigorously stand against cultural compromises in favor of God’s Word.
Richard Hughes is Scholar in Residence in the College of Bible and Ministry at Lipscomb University and is the author, coauthor, or editor of more than a dozen books, including Reviving the Ancient Faith: The Story of Churches of Christ in America.
“This book reclaims the historic DNA of Churches of Christ, advocates for it, and calls us into it. Hughes reimagines our tradition so that the kingdom might flourish among us.”
— John Mark Hicks, Professor of Theology, Lipscomb University, and coauthor of Kingdom Come
“In these essays, Richard Hughes issues a heartfelt call to reclaim a vision of the kingdom of God, a vision that admits the human limitations of ignorance, history, and sin, and rejects any attempt to manage or tame the Almighty. If Churches of Christ are to survive, they need to hear this radical plea for a countercultural ethical vision.”
— Gary Holloway, Executive Director of World Convention and author of Unfinished Reconciliation
