Customer Review

on 27 December 2013
What is the church? What's it all about? Is it important? Today, there are many different voices saying many different things about the church.

In this book, Chris Green wants us to see what the Bible itself says about the church. To that end, each chapter carefully opens up a passage (or in a couple of cases a few passages) of Scripture.

The first four chapters give a Bible overview from the perspective of the church, covering eternity past to eternity future. The remaining eleven chapters each consider a particular aspect of church, for example the church's life (Acts 2), the church's meal (1 Cor 11), the church's servants (1 Tim 3, 5).

I really enjoyed reading the book (not a hard or dry read) and seeing more clearly the purpose of the church in God's plans and what the church should be like. Chris also has some particularly penetrating insights at various points in the book. For example, when thinking about the church's life in Acts 2, Chris considers what fellowship meant for the early church. He argues that it involves a serious commitment to one another, including a financial commitment - a strong challenge to many of our churches today.

Overall, a really helpful, clear and readable book on the church. Highly recommended.
