A book to make you love your local church,
This review is from: The Message of the Church (Bible Speaks Today) (The Bible Speaks Today) (Paperback)
I read this book over my summer holiday and it was a blessing. Chris Green has read widely and thought carefully about his subject and it comes across on every page. He loves the Lord of the Church and he loves the Scriptures and these combine to form a feast for anyone who wants to think biblically about the "whys" and "hows" and" whos" of the church. He is thorough but interesting; he interacts with a range of scholarship without being overly academic. As I flick through my copy I see underlines and margin marks on nearly every page.
Quibble: - I fond myself sometimes thinking "Tell me what you really think!" I imagine space didn't allow.
One of the BST series carries an endorsement comment from someone that "there is gold on every page" this book stands in that tradition.
