The book is excellent. My church is using it for a Bible Study. Although, there were not enough copies in stock to accommodate all of us. But, the book is thorough and a great study guide.

I have really enjoyed this in-depth study of the Church. We will be starting a new church soon and this is the kind of information that we really needed.

This book is the best book I have read on the Church. Unlike most works on this and similar subjects, this book isn't written from a particular denominational standpoint. You will not find a Baptist, Congregational, Dispensational, Reformed, etc., viewpoint here, nor eachs peculiar avoidance of verses which do not fit their predisposed theological positions. Instead, Kevin J. Conner offers a biblical look at what the N.T. Church Is Not, Is, and Is To Be. As he does in all his works, Conner's refreshing method of taking his material directly from the biblical text (regardless of the implications or potential ruffling of preconceived doctrinal feathers) guards against errors, pet doctrines, and personal opinion, an approach, incidentally, which is recommended to many of the Christian authors writing today, and which undoubtedly would be welcomed by their reading public. Rather than merely skimming over the top of the various sub-points, the author treats of the O.T. types and patterns, the theological implications, and practical outworkings of a book-by-book revelation of the Church in the Gospels, Acts and Epistles. He explains the difference between Israel, the Kingdom, and the Church, also giving an in-depth assessment of each of the 7 N.T. Church offices, along with their scriptural qualifications, the nine Gifts of the Spirit, and the 30-odd congregational gifts/ministries available to the believer, showing how Christ is the Pattern for the Christian in all N.T. Church ministry. Conner also candidly addresses the subject of women in the ministry, devoting an entire chapter to this controversial area. A very handy Local Church sample-constitution is provided as well. As any of us who have had the privilege of sitting under Dr. Conner's teaching ministry can testify, this book offers sound biblical insight and interpretation of a subject that desperately needs clarification in our day of media-wise Megachurchs and cafe-Christianity.
