Editorial Reviews

Religious Studies Review
This book should be a mandatory reading in undergraduate, seminary, and graduate courses on evangelical theory.
Evangelical Review of Theology
. . . The primary contribution of this volume may lie precisely in its framing the various important ecclesiological points of discussion that need to be addressed in evangelical theology.
Andy Draycott
A concrete contextual contribution with a strongly pastoral concern. This is a useful introduction to the various ways in which the church is making a comeback into evangelical theology. The footnotes open up avenues for recommended reading.
Iain Cameron
It does raise many interesting issues on the nature and mission of the church today. For anyone involved in Christian ministry it will therefore prove helpful in identifying and confronting issues which threaten to distort or distract the church.
