About-

"The Church, who is she?" asks Bo Giertz in this book, which, he adds, "is first of all for those who have some notion of the life which is present within the church walls and also have some desire to understand that life better and know more about it." If you're among the tens of thousands who've read Giertz's bestselling novel The Hammer of God about ordinary people in their relation to the Church and her message, then you know his ability to engage you in the dramatic events of everyday life. Giertz shows the same engaging ability, when he in Christ's Church takes you on a walk from her biblical roots toward her glorious future.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Christ's Church demonstrates the resilient vigor of Bo Giertz's literary work. First published under the dark clouds of an erupting world war in 1939, Christ's Church has not lost its power to convict and comfort. If anything the vitality of Giertz's book is even more potent in our day of pluralism, doctrinal indifference, and inbred suspicion of all religious institutions. Confident of the church's oneness in Christ, built secure on the foundation of the apostolic Word, Giertz sees the church as a living legacy of God's faithfulness. This is a book that speaks with clarity and conviction to seasoned Christians at home in the Father's house as well as to those who stand outside but peep in the window, seeking a glimpse of life lived in God's family"

"One of the most insightful thinkers in the rich tradition of Swedish theology, Bo Giertz drew deeply from the biblical roots of the church's understanding of itself out of the midst of his daily routine as parish pastor. Anchored in the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Bo Giertz's succinct but penetrating synthesis of biblical teaching on God's people assembled by the Holy Spirit rings true around the world seventy years after its composition. Giertz aids readers to embrace the catholic practice of the church and to bring the Gospel to those around us at the beginning of the twenty-first century."
