Jesus Christ prayed that his disciples be sanctified by the truth, not a divided truth but a single truth, a united truth. However, doctrinal disputes have divided the church and shaped Christian tradition. The recurrent desire for certainty among Christians, in fact, fuels this tendency toward fragmentation. Unity In Diversity, ecumenical in tone, attempts to understand these divisions within the church by using doctrinal examples about the Anti-Christ. In a truly unique approach, Carter weds chaos theory with traditional concepts of logos in positing that the problem is not the nature of truth but our expectations about the nature of truth, expectations we have inherited from Hellenism. Contents: The God of History; The Doctrine of the Antichrist; The Risk of Faith; Ethical Relativism; The Spirit of Truth and Pluralism; Nonlinear Systems: Constancy Amid Change; The God of Surprises; The Holy God.
