About-

The church today is in many places “on the nose.” For many people, it stinks. It has passed its “use-by” date and should be relegated to the dustbins of history, and the sooner, the better. Nevertheless, the contributors to this volume believe that the church, in spite of its somewhat checkered history and its many present failures, remains an integral part of God’s redemptive purposes being worked out in the world, and that God’s call to the church is now what it has always been: to be the faithful people of God, bearing joy-filled witness to the resurrection of Jesus Christ in word, worship, and work, in its corporate life, and in the lives of each of its members. Each chapter in this book explores an aspect of what it means to be the church, both with respect to its own life, and with an eye to its presence and mission in the world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Rumors of the church’s demise abound. Yet, if we open our eyes, we see that churches are being born and renewed at an astonishing rate, in almost every culture on the planet. Many of these churches are transforming neighborhoods while proclaiming the person and the gospel of Jesus Christ. This book will inspire you to see the church afresh—Christ’s vessel for healing the world.”

—Graham Joseph Hill, Principal, Stirling Theological College (University of Divinity), and author of Holding Up Half the Sky
