About-

What is the true nature of the church? What should it be doing? Are God’s intentions for it today any different than they were 500—or 1900—years ago?

In this highly readable, yet scholarly book, Peter Toon looks at these vital questions from a solidly biblical perspective, with careful discussion of more than twenty-five New Testament images of the church.

Throughout the book, Toon focuses on four basic actions of the church—looking back (church history), looking up (worship), looking forward (to our eternal home), and looking around (mission).

God’s Church for Today paints a convincing—and convicting—portrait of the church. It will enable believers to gain a fuller understanding of what it means to belong to that glorious company, God’s church.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Dr. Toon does a fine job of demonstrating that discipleship means churchmanship, and that belonging to God’s church is a great and glorious thing. His enthusiasm in infectious.”

J.I. Packer, author of Knowing God
