about this item
What is the true nature of the church? What should it be doing? Are God's intentions for it today any different than they were 500--or 1900--years ago? In this highly readable, yet scholarly book, Peter Toon looks at these vital questions from a solidly biblical perspective, with careful discussion of more than twenty-five New Testament images of the church.
Throughout the book, Toon focuses on four basic actions of the church--looking back (church history), looking up (worship), looking forward (to our eternal home), and looking around (mission).
God's Church for Today paints a convincing--and convicting--portrait of the church. It will enable believers to gain a fuller understanding of what it means to belong to that glorious company, God's church.
