All Together Different Review

Book Review: 

ALL TOGETHER DIFFERENT
Upholding the Church’s Unity While Honoring Our Individual Identities
By J. Brian Tucker & John Koessler
In this book the authors give a detailed description of how we are identified. They have ten chapters that offer different identity methods. They cover identity factors of race, ethnicity, male, female, generation, the “in crowd” and church. The conflicts between these factors sometimes can be a crisis in getting along with others and making decisions. They show we look at things from a view point of our background or how we live and that can cause problems. The points they cover are very important to how we see things and people and make decisions about them. They show how we can change and look at things differently by letting God show us our true identity. The book helps us understand that all people are different and how their identity affects the way we see them and how we can learn to get along as one. At the end of each chapter a list of questions is given, for refection, these will help with understanding that chapter. The book is written to help us understand what social identity can teach us about church unity. In the final chapter they cover the highlights of the book.
The book should be a help in understanding why we look at things differently and how that can change. Why we all have our own way to looking at things. Why conflicts come up between people and groups. Letting God be in control of our thoughts and still have a separate identity. A great addition to helping us in our walk with Christ.
