Roots : Uncovering Why We Do What We Do in Church (Paperback) (Dyron Daughrity)
About this item
Why do we do what we do in church? Roots answers that question. Readers will discover for themselves the history of seven important topics that are at the very heart of what it means to be a Christian.- Bible: Who decided on what the Bible should include? - Baptism: Why do some baptize infants and others baptize believers? - Eucharist: How did a “supper” turn into a tiny wafer and a sip of juice? - Church buildings: How did we get from meeting in homes to attending megachurch arenas? - Pastors: How did church leadership become so professionalized and hierarchical? - Sermons: How did we get from “Love thy neighbor” to a 30-minute rhetorical performance? - Church Music: Early Christians chanted Psalms, but now we have Chris Tomlin. Why? Every Christian needs to know these things . . . and decide what they believe.
