Models of the church
In Models of the church, one of the twentieth century's most beloved theologians defined the basic function of the church while assessing its different roles in the lives of believers and its mission on earth.
this is a useful and insightful guide through the complex contemporary debate on how the church could be one without losing its many faces and particularities. it offers a rich variety of contributions from diverse denominational and cultural backgrounds committed to the re-evaluation of older models of ecumenism while sharing their desire for the church's celebration, witness, and service in the world not to be disrupted by divisions.
Why Church Matters
church is not where we go. its who we are. we were meant to live our faith in isolation. the church is the place God uses to grow us, encourage us, and use our gifts for his glory. in this honest, personal, and practical book, Joshua Harris shows you why its time to say yes to church and how to find the right one for you, the place where you can fall in love with the family of God.
Yours is the Church
this book provides an urgently needed and eye-opening reminder of the historical witness, cultural greatness, moral leadership, and perennial relevance of the catholic church. Christianity has radically changed the world for the better. in a book that's both thoughtful and entertaining, Mike Aquilina shows how the Gospel really has been the good news in the most practical ways possible. Even the atheist ought to thank...whoever he thanks...for the rise of Christianity.
