Until Unity by Francis Chan

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — David C Cook announces Until Unity, the new book by New York Times best-selling author and international Pastor Francis Chan, will release in April 2021. Chan examines the growing division among Christians and how he believes it happens when they stop growing in their love for God and for one other. While holding out hope for unity, Chan insists that divisions will only be overcome when Christians accept THE source of unity. “I know I will be mocked for my simplicity,” he writes. “But love really is the answer.”

“We are currently the most divided faith group on earth, and there isn’t a close second. We have thousands of denominations and ministries, each believing their theology or methodology is superior,” writes Chan in Until Unity. “The saddest part of this is that our Savior was crucified to end our divisions, commands us to be united, and says we will impact the world when we become one. We have forgotten how our divisions affect God and an unbelieving world.”

In this thoroughly scriptural treatise, Francis Chan points Christians around the globe back to the issues that mattered most to Jesus: love for God and love for neighbor (Mark 12:28–31). Chan explains how a casual, dismissive attitude toward loving unity is incredibly dangerous showing:

  • God grieves the division in the church, so we cannot remain indifferent.
  • Unity demands a level of humility only possible by the Spirit.
  • The power and witness of the church hinges on our oneness
  • Unity comes at a cost, but it commands a blessing

David C Cook is supporting the launch of Until Unity with advertising, digital, social media efforts and a national publicity campaign. Francis Chan is available for limited press interviews.

Francis Chan has been a pastor for over thirty years. He is a New York Times bestselling author of several best-selling books including Crazy Love and Letters to the Church. He and his wife, Lisa, have been married for nearly 30 years and co-authored You and Me Forever. Currently, Francis and his family split their time between ministry and church planting in Northern California and Asia. 

David C Cook is a nonprofit organization dedicated to publishing and distributing leadership and discipleship resources to help Christians all over the world grow in their faith and pass it on to the next generation.
