Product Description

Would you be surprised if our problems were their problems? The Right Church shows just how closely the issues facing Christians today also faced the ancient church.

Many of us long for a faith like the first Christians. We even romanticize the early followers of Jesus and invoke them authoritatively for current church controversies. But what can we really know about these people from long ago? We may be surprised to see how "our" contemporary, hot-button issues have currency in the early church.

In The Right Church, author Chuck Gutenson shows us how the early church's addressed issues related to poverty and wealth, war, creation care, social issues, and more. Take a peek into a seemingly lost era and discover that their insights can still work today.
