Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior. No phrase captures better the ethos of modern evangelical Christianity. And while this is absolutely necessary for a Christian to believe and profess, what typically gets lost in much evangelical thinking and acting is Jesus church. This book seeks to present to evangelical Christians the basics of ecclesiology, or, the biblical doctrine of the church. The authors say in these pages, This is a church, in the most basic and fundamental of ways. No matter what view of church government you may hold, the goal is to draw you back to the big principles of Scripture to help you understand the church s identity, authority, ecumenicity, and activity.

In an age when doing church has either been shaped by an if it feels good, do it approach, or else by the narrow constraints of particular views of church, the issues addressed in these pages are very timely. Even though its authors have their own particular church background, they come with an awareness of the larger church that enables them to reach into the wide spectrum of church life. Their aim in writing is to open up key biblical principles to explain what the church is and how it functions and they do so in a way that covers all the major aspects of church life. Regardless of church background, anyone who wants to get a clearer grasp of why church matters and what it should be like should read this book. --Mark G. Johnston, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff UK
