Circles of Fellowship: Responding to the Crisis of Christian Identity

A Reprise of Who Is My Brother?


A quiet revolution is taking place among the churches of Christ, raising troubling questions about identity and fellowship.

"Never before in the history of the restoration movement has so dramatic a change occurred in such short a time with such little opposition."

Is baptism essential for forgiveness and salvation?

How should we regard believers whose doctrine is different?

Can there be Christian unity without compromising truth?

For a younger audience who may have missed Who Is My Brother?, Smith proposes a comprehensive five-fold fellowship:

Universal Fellowship (The Family of Man)
Faith Fellowship (Like Family)
"In Christ" Fellowship (The Extended Family)
Conscience Fellowship (Close Family)
Congregational Fellowship (Immediate Family)
