Format: Paperback
This is a fine book. The chapters by John Webster are worth the price. Unfortunately, I must have clicked the button twice. Anyway, I got two copies when I had only wanted one.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mark Husband's and Daniel Treier have collected a wonderful array of essays on the crisis of ecclesiology in Evangelicalism that present a variety of views of the church in historical developments, dogmatics, ethics, sacraments, and cultural engagements. In the wake of rampant over individualism which has left a vacuum of discussion and reality for the church, these authors take up the urgent task of engaging doctrines of the church as God's instrument in the world. I would highly recommend William Dyrness' essay, "Spaces for and Evangelical Ecclesiology,"
