God's Church for Today

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. ""Dr. Toon does a fine job of demonstrating that discipleship means churchmanship, and that belonging to God's church is a great and glorious thing. His enthusiasm in infectious."" J.I. Packer, author of Knowing God Reverend Dr. Peter Toon (1939-2009) received his DPhil from Oxford. He was ordained a priest in the Church of England. He taught theology in both England and America, and was also a visiting professor and guest lecturer at a variety of seminaries and universities in Asia, Europe, and Australia. Dr. Toon was a parish priest and a recent past-president of the Prayer Book Society of the USA.
