Mike begins by warning against hypocritical criticism of mono-ethnic churches. He considers homogeneous units and evangelistic strategy, beginning with McGavran’s pioneering role. The Homogenous Unit Principle (HUP) is considered alongside barriers to conversion. The question is raised as to scriptural warrant for HUP with a critique of some spurious appeals to Scripture. There is a consideration of reasons for and against establishing homogeneous churches, with some preliminary conclusions drawn. A word of caution follows against over-reacting to the HUP. Principles drawn from a biblical model of culture are next applied in evaluating the HUP.
