Product Description

What is the church, at its core? Ideally, beneath the cultural trappings, it is a community of people governed by the Word and taught by the Spirit. Building on this foundation, Van Gelder draws on Scripture, sociology, and history to rethink contemporary church structure, with an eye toward keeping it on course for the 21st century. 256 pages, softcover from Baker.
