Editorial Reviews

"Timeless Church is solid. It notes that the bedrock basics that guided the church in the first century should also guide it in the twenty-first century. Doctrine, community, prayer, giving, and evangelism never grow old or go out of style. Biblically faithful and extremely practical, it will serve the Lord’s churches well."
—Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
 
"The twenty-first century church has many questions, and the book of Acts is a great place to look for answers. I’m thankful for my friends and their engaging book Timeless Church: Five Lessons from Acts. Herein you will not only learn more about the early church, but you will also learn what God has to say to your church."
—Jason K. Allen, president, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
 
"In Timeless Church, McClendon and Lockhart demonstrate a clear and biblical understanding of what makes church, well . . . church! And they do so in a way that reminds you of the relevancy of the church in today’s age. In simple, yet profound ways, they speak to the elements of church that allows it (us) to function as a glorious reflection of God’s character and love for his people. The idea expressed in Jer 32:38, ’They will be my people, and I will be their God’ (CSB), comes shining through, and you will be encouraged."
—Doug Bischoff, Next Generations Minister, Houston’s First Baptist Church, Houston, TX
 
"Adam and Jared have written a great book with tools to build a church and present a model that has been multiplied over all the generations. I have served in and with the local church for more than forty years. God says in Matthew that he will build his church. The book of Acts is the model for his church and what the components of his church should be. Today, churches often want to do something different to stand out, but God set the pattern in Acts, and it has never changed. Lessons learned from these foundational components of a local church are tested, tried, and true."
—Tracy Hipps, executive director, Christian Service Mission, Birmingham, AL
 
"Nothing jeopardizes the growth of a new convert like neglecting the local church. Timeless Church encourages the new believer (and reminds the old) to seek a church that is faithful to the gospel, the Scriptures, and the family of God. Lockhart and McClendon write with accessible prose as they introduce the tenets of ecclesiology. We would do well to put Timeless Church in the hands of every new believer."
—Matthew Kimbrough, assistant professor of theology, Southwest Baptist University
 
"Timeless Church is a timeless message the modern church desperately needs. This inspiring, challenging, and practical study of the bare-knuckle basics of the church in the book of Acts helps all churches of today drill to the core of being who Jesus has called us to be for his glory. You won’t regret a minute of reading this faithful work."
—Kenny Qualls, senior pastor, First Baptist Church, Arnold, MO
 
 "Timeless Church is a remarkable book that was written to help you think about church in life-changing ways. The approach to glean lessons about the church from the book of Acts is not necessarily new, but I have not read a book that provides so much helpful insight in considering what a church should be. In addition, the book provides helpful ways to engage the material by providing group questions and five days of devotions at the end of each section. This is a tremendous way to engage both the book of Acts and one another in serious discussion of the purpose of a church."
—David Talley, professor of Old Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
 
"McClendon and Lockhart help us to see how the church in the book of Acts is an example for your local church. Amply illustrated and immensely practical, Timeless Church provides several prescriptions, which, if followed, would be a boon to the health of any church. The discussion questions and devotional sections that follow each chapter make the book an excellent candidate for either individual reading or small group study."
—Donald S. Whitney, professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean of the school of theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
 
"Adam McClendon and Jared Lockhart brilliantly articulate the five foundational characteristics of the early church found in the book of Acts to show why these foundational characteristics are still just as important for the spiritual awakening for today’s church. Their model is a timeless reminder of the lessons that the church, found in the book of Acts, organically utilized to grow and to empower the believers to advance the gospel and influence the world through prayer and the Word of God."
—Dante D. Wright, pastor, Sweet Home—The Pinnacle of Praise, Round Rock, TX
