By Ronald P. Byars,Thomas W. Currie
"It is to be was hoping that the voice of Ron Byars might be commonly heard at the present time in mainstream American Protestantism. this is an incredible argument for the much-needed authority of a nuanced orthodoxy, for the restoration of be aware and sacrament on the middle of the lifetime of our church buildings, for tub, e-book, meal, and attentiveness to the terrible because the unobscured crucial schedule of our Sunday conferences. while you're considering the id and faithfulness of your personal congregation, take and read!"
--Gordon W. Lathrop, Past-President, Societas Liturgica and North American Academy of Liturgy, Philadelphia, PA
"Ron Byars is at his absolute best in Finding Our Balance,demonstrating the brain of a considerate student and the guts of a professional pastor, preacher, and worship chief. during this powerfully persuasive ebook, he essentially names the church's idolatrous try to make peace with the wishes of the encircling tradition and demands an unashamed re-claiming of the church's doctrinal allegiance to Jesus Christ as expressed within the historical creeds and classical liturgy of the church. think me, this e-book simply will be a video game changer within the lifetime of mainstream Protestantism."
--Ron Luckey, retired ELCA pastor, Lexington, KY
"A provocative and useful dialog among Tillich's 'Protestant precept' and Barth's theological 'modesty'--a modesty Barth rooted no longer within the fallibility of God's be aware yet of human phrases. Byars reminds us that God's be aware is expressed within the religion of the church ('orthodoxy'), a residing culture preserved in liturgy--both the major and the perform of it in worship--with recognition to the main needy between us."
--Tom Trinidad, pastor, religion Presbyterian Church, Colorado Springs, CO
