'Thisis an excellent and much-needed introduction to ecclesiology. The book is wide-ranging, engaging the mostimportant classical sources and some of the most interesting contemporarytheological voices. The authors considerancient controversies and new movements like the Emerging Church, always steeringa steady course between ecclesiological sloth and ecclesiological pride. This book is a model for how generous andcritical theological conversation should be conducted.' - William T. Cavanaugh, Senior Research Fellow, Center for Wo

"'The Church" is indeed a guide - for both the perplexed and the apoplexed.

Writing from their own free church traditions but for the whole church, they provide a non-partisan overview of the doctrine of the church that is clear but never simplistic. They include several well-judged excurses on particularly important matters (e.g., the question of Jesus' founding the church, the development of the episcopacy, women's ordination, and the emerging church). Their main burden, however, is to weave a positive account of the nature, function, and origin of the church as the means by which the triune God asserts and advances the kingdom that arrived in Jesus.
