Insider Jesus: Theological Reflections on New Christian Movements

Warrick Farah

Abstract


Until now, the Insider Movement (IM) has lacked a sustained, in-depth theological justification- Insider Jesus: Theological Reflections on New Christian Movements by William Dyrness, offers one theologian’s unique approach to meet this need. Evangelical theologies of mission are sometimes filled with either proof-texting or philosophy that never even touches on the biblical text; Insider Jesus is neither of these.
