Hunter discusses the rebirth of the apostolic congregation, Christianity's vision of what people can become, how small groups shape an apostolic people, how lay ministry advances the Christian movement, and how apostolic churches reach secular people.
This work shows that there is an apostolic way for a congregation to live out the gospel, and here is why church leaders think so:
