Item Description...
Max Lucado and Gene Appel embody the new engagement between the Stone-Campbell Movement and evangelicalism. Lucado is America's bestselling Christian writer; and Appel was recently appointed successor to Bill Hybels at Willow Creek, America's largest and most influential evangelical church. Both men have deep Stone-Campbell Movement roots. The Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement is a two-hundred-year-old tradition made up of three sub-traditions: Churches of Christ (a capella), Christian Churches (independent), and Disciples of Christ. Churches of Christ (a capella) and Christian Churches (independent) especially, are increasingly engaging both each another and the evangelical world. As this engagement continues, suspicions and misconceptions are giving way, and foundational theological issues are being explored - together. This important volume continues the dialogue that began with the first volume of Evangelicalism and the Stone-Campbell Movement (InterVarsity Press 2002). Volume 2 focuses on the basic doctrines of God, Christ, the Lord's Supper, eschatology and Scripture. Responses from noted evangelical scholars show how Stone-Campbell thought both corresponds with and departs from evangelical thought. Everyone concerned with Christian unity and theological soundness in a time of shakeup and realignment on the Christian landscape will find rich thought and provocative discussion in this volume.

Brethren seeking to understand each other.  Sep 2, 2008
Here is the second volume of discussions held at the Evangelical Theological Society meetings between Evangelicals and those in the Stone-Campbell tradition (usually called The Restoration Movement).

It offers scholarly yet easy-to-understand presentations of how these two groups agree and disagree about the doctrines of God, Christ, the Lord's Supper, and the end-times. The purpose of both volumes is to show that Evangelicals and those in the Restoration Movement are really quite similar in belief and practice; they are brethren in Christ who should seek to understand each other, instead of staying aloof from each other. Such discussions can promote fellowship among both groups. This second volume fulfils that purpose just as well as the first one did.

However, I feel this second volume has some serious defects when it discusses the LORD'S SUPPER.

First, I fail to see why the Lord's Supper is even discussed here.
Except for the Restoration Movement's emphasis on the frequency of this meal (celebrating it every Sunday), it has essentially the same view of the Lord's Supper that most Evangelicals have. So it is no surprise to me that the British Evangelical scholar, I. H. Marshall, offers no negative responses to what the Stone-Campbell writers say about the Supper, for they express exactly what any Evangelical would.

Second, two of the Stone-Campbell writers (Mark S. Krause and John Mark Hicks) fail to express what the Restoration Movement view of the Supper really is. Most of the quotes and the voluminous footnotes they present are from liberal British and German scholars who have nothing to do with the Stone-Campbell Movement. Krause does not refer to or seem to use the excellent book entitled What the Bible Says About the Lord's Supper, written by Andrew Paris (College Press, 1986), which I have reviewed also at this site. Hicks is a little better here. He does quote from his own a capella brethren (Churches of Christ), but then only to castigate them. Instead of summarizing the interpretation of the Lord's Supper according to the writings of the Stone-Campbell movement, he launches forth to expound a tangent idea, the Supper as an eschatological meal (which Paris had already discussed), as if the Restoration Movement never heard of such an idea.

Third, I do not understand why Marshall gets to present the Evangelical response. Yes, he wrote the book entitled Last Supper and Lord's Supper about twenty years ago, but others have written essays on that topic
also. I don't even think Marshall is an "Evangelical." He denies Biblical inerrancy, as well as some other doctrines most Evangelicals must maintain. Also he seem too easy. He agrees with everything the three Stone-Campbell writers say, even about taking the Lord's Supper every week. He does not represent the average Evangelical scholar or minister. Few of them would agree with him about weekly Communion or not needing an ordained evangelist officiating at the Lord's Table.

But the other chapters in this book are well worth the price of this book. I recommend it highly. Anyone who would like to understand the theological positions of both Evangelicals and those in the Stone-Campbell movement should get both volumes.
