In Your Church Is Too Small, John Armstrong presents a vision of the unity possible for Christians across social, cultural, racial, and denominational lines. When Jesus' followers seek unity through participation in the kingdom of God and the mission of Christ, they demonstrate God's character to a watching world.
"I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you." Too often, these words of Jesus from John 17:20-21 seem like an unreachable ideal. But in Your Church Is Too Small, John Armstrong shows that Jesus' vision of Christian unity is for all God's people across social, cultural, racial, and denominational lines. "With attention to his own pilgrimage and growth in ecclesial awareness, John Armstrong explores here the evangelical heart and ecumenical breadth of churchly Christianity.
I am encouraged by his explorations and commend this study to all believers who pray and labor for the unity for which our Savior prayed." - Timothy George, senior editor, Christianity Today. "Dr. Armstrong's irenic approach should make it easy for Christians-whether Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant-to engage the challenging thesis of the book, while recognizing that there remain points of doctrine between them which will require further clarification.
