Perhaps no other book on the issue of Christian unity is more pertinent for the church today than Lloyd-Jones’ text . This already in existence unity sounds remarkably unfamiliar given the tone of the unity rhetoric heard in so much of the church today

Perhaps no other book on the issue of Christian unity is more pertinent for the church today than Lloyd-Jones’ text entitled The Basis of Christian Unity. More of a booklet – it’s merely 77 pages in length – the tiny tome blasts out Biblical truth about Christian unity in a forthright, and hopefully convicting (for modern church ecumenicists) manner. This already in existence unity sounds remarkably unfamiliar given the tone of the unity rhetoric heard in so much of the church today. We see impassioned pleas for ecumenical unity from every corner of Christendom.

It points to timeless truths which should never be obscured.

This is what emerges from Dr. Lloyd-Jones' consideration of John 17 and Ephesians 4 in the addresses to the Westminster Fellowship republished here. His presentation was given against the background of the ferment of the time and demonstrated that unity is never something arrived at by ignoring or minimizing truth. The debates have moved on, but this lucid examination of the issues underlying Christian unity remains as relevant as when first presented in 1962.

Unity in the church has been a bad example for not yet believers for far too long. Jones gives his take on why scripture says we should be united. Not overlooking doctrine, but united despite seeing minor differences. Is Christ your savior? If yes, read this book and welcome everyone else who said yes into His family

Good read

While people are doing their best in seeking the unity, peace by themselves. This book addresses the doctrine of the Christian unity and how we can truely have it only in Christ

These two mini expositions, of John 17 and Ephesians 4, calmly show the error of today's ecumenical push.

Those who look down upon the separated parts of God's Church really need to pick up The Basis of Christian Unity and deal humbly with its message. It is the hot pursuit after a unity condemned by the Lord and Scripture that is the real cause of schism. This anti-biblical vision is closely connected to, or part of, `The New Evangelicalism.' Though it is not called that as such in here, that trend is identified and corrected in this book. `Don't judge' is its familiar, out of context, motto.

If this little green booklet seems too slight to put confidence in, then the reader should seek out Lloyd-Jones' full exposition of John 17 or his massive exposition of Ephesians.
