Called to be Holy in the World
An Introduction to Christian History
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"If the church is to be one and holy, it must be wholly in the world, yet remain wholly united with the Lord. The unity and purity that the church experiences must always be found in its relationship with Jesus who is one with the Father and who has restored us by His blood. There is no other way. The history of the church reflects that tension between unity and purity, between oneness and holiness. It is a struggle we face today. In light of the past, we can have hope for the future as God's people called to be wholly and holy in the world."
