ecclesiology ought to bristle. This was more like a Sunday stroll after a dinner on the grounds: very little excitement and even less by way of prophetic indictment. One is better off reading Berkhower or Barth. At least these guys had some hutzpah!
Rev. Jeff Becker
Phillips, Ryken, and Dever take the Nicene creed and discuss each of the adjectives of the Church. They handle things extremely well (from a Protestant perspective, mind you) and in a helpful manner. That was the point of the book; the point was not to give a comprehensive view of the Church Universal, but to deal with the creed, handle misconceptions, and approve of our historic faith. I ought not grade it on a scale which it never pretended to acquiesce to, therefore I believe it should receive 4/5 stars for attaining its goal; I would give it a 2/5 for appealing to a majority audience; I would give it a 4/5 for explaining things in a manner that would be extremely beneficial for a new Christian in a liturgical setting or a primer to the doctrine of the Church.
