Over recent years there has been a growing concern for the health of gospel churches. That is to be applauded wherever it is found, but very often that concerns has come down to the introduction of a few new items to the church agenda—a Christian foundation course here or a discipleship course there.
However the agenda of this book is different. The vision of this volume, which the authors believe is the New Testament vision, is that the whole way a church should be formed, run and led should work for the health of all its members and for the thriving of the church as a community of God's people. It is a church with an intentional mind-set throughout, and a church where all the dots are joined up.
The church of Christ will be completely pure only in that New Creation. But local churches are to be a colony of that 'Pure Church' now, here on earth. This book is a call to work towards that purity.
"This book provides exactly what evangelical Christianity needs, but generally doesn't know it: a biblical vision for robust and healthy churches."
— Jonathan Leeman, Editorial Director, 9Marks
