Unionism by John Michael Reu

The Marks of Unionism A difference in doctrine which hitherto has been regarded as divisive, is suddenly made to lose its divisive significance. Differences in doctrine are made to lose their divisive significance with a view to uniting hitherto separate churches. A formula of unification is found which each of two hitherto separate churches may accept but which each of them interprets differently. An external bond is found for internally divided groups.
