Publisher's Summary

The church becomes more divided each day.

Many seek reassurance or perceived unity by creating doctrinal statements, but that misses the point. Doctrine is necessary, but it is not the solution.

In his new book Until Unity, New York Times best-selling author Francis Chan tells listeners that the real problem is shallow or even nonexistent love for each other. Do we truly understand the gospel? Do we believe in the miracle of the Holy Spirit in us? As believers, Christians are supposed to yield the fruit of supernatural love for one another. Instead, we allow jealousy and selfish ambition to prevail.

God hates this division between his children - and our indifference to it. He has provided the solution to the church through gifting of leaders to equip his people in a way that leads to “unity of the faith” - but not at the expense of truth or holiness. Believers have done a poor job at this, but we can hear the call and be “eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:3).

Although the Bible commands unity, some will resist these unifying efforts. We see it every day. We have to hate sin, love truth, and pursue unity for the church. This is messy, but no matter what, Christians must give everything they have to the pursuit of a unified, restored Bride.

Emotional Plea for Unity

Francis Chan's voice is so emotion filled that I have trouble not crying while listening to this book. I feel completely convicted to leave behind the heresy hunter mentality and begin to pray fervently for a united body of Christ.

Powerful personal and communal call.

Francis Chan once again (Letters to the Church) balances deep humility with a call to personal and communal transformation, possible only through God’s power. Beautiful, challenging, practical.

Worth the listen/read.

Still chewing on it. Still praying on it. Very intense information that spoke to exactly my current struggles. Im overwhelmed by conviction and thankful for the bravery of the author to take a hard stand on a topic that will undoubtedly bring forth criticism. I have so much love for Chan. This book is, in my opinion, unapologetically different than his previous books. It’s bolder and written with so much transparency. I love that he used so much scripture. There are portions I’m pouring over a few more times.

Good message Not so good performance

This is an important topic, but it's very hard to listen to. I feel like I'm being yelled at all the time. The author is passionate, for sure. The message is good but the very loud "shouting at you" performance makes it almost impossible to listen to. Probably better read than listened to. A disappointment.

So important, so relevant

I feel my heart moving and the spirit moving when I read this book. I’m challenged and brought to my knees in prayer. Prayer for the church our community, and in my home wife my wife and kids. Thank you for your heart Francis. Thank you for your humility. God bless

The Rx for Unity

Unity in an unbelievably fractured nation and world? Unity in the universal body of Christ with its thousands of body parts at war against each other, to the point of shooting their own wounded? Chan gives the church the prescription for every believer in the hospital called "church". Rx = be a Spirit filled person, and unity will follow.
