Summary: An urgent debate is raging within America's mainline denominations. Yet the fundamental questions are not new. In 325 A.D. at a place called Nicaea, the Church erupted in to battleground between the forces of Christian faith and cultural accommodation. Some people lost their jobs. Others were banished. Some paid the ultimate price. Throughout the fifty-six year firestorm one man stood firm...and we have inherited his faith. With rare clarity and passion, Parker Williamson traces our modern religious concerns to the past - and finds hope and resolution for the future.
