Overview

Defines a biblical church as one that properly balances the eternal truths of Scripture with timely, relevant methods designed to engage the culture.

The book in the popular Re:Lit series picks up where Vintage Jesus leaves off, beginning with a focus on the person and work of Jesus and then exploring the confessional, experiential, and missional aspects of his church. This study grows out of the vintage concept of taking timeless truths from Scripture-truths about church leadership, preaching, baptism, communion, and more-and blending them with aspects of contemporary culture, such as multi-campus churches and the latest forms of technology, to reach people with the gospel.

While Vintage Church is helpful for pastors and church leaders, it is the kind of book you could hand to someone who has questions about ecclesiology but finds the very term ecclesiology intimidating. The authors put forth twelve practical questions about church doctrine and answer them in clear, biblical language that lay people and new believers can understand.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Driscoll and Breshears have teamed up to provide a new generation of pastors and Christian leaders with a biblically sound, tartly relevant, and crisply practical guide to understanding the church. This book lives up to its subtitle, Timeless Truths and Timely Methods. The authors' wit, grit, and gravitas combine to make it an enjoyable and thought provoking must-read for twenty-first-century spiritual leadership."
Rick Booye, Senior Pastor, Trail Christian Fellowship, Eagle Point, Oregon; President, Pacific Bible College, Medford, Oregon

"Having treated us to Vintage Jesus and Death by Love, Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears team up again to provide a third installment that addresses the nature, life, and missional character of the church of Jesus Christ. Pastors, church members, and those who are just wondering about Jesus and his church will find this book to be very helpful. The expected topics-church leadership, preaching, baptism, the Lord's Supper-are covered clearly and practically. What I especially appreciate is the discussion of often overlooked topics like church unity, discipline, and love, and the attention given to new topics like multi-site campuses and the use of technology. "Timeless" and "timely" are apt descriptions of this book on the church that is must reading!"
Gregg R. Allison, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Vintage Church is a remarkable book. Mark and Gerry seek to be rigorously biblical and theologically faithful as they address the doctrine of the church. However, the real uniqueness to this book is its personal and practical insights. Remaining faithful to the gospel of Jesus, the authors help us think and see how to do church in a twenty-first-century context that presents both challenges and opportunities to the body of Christ. Timeless truths and timely methods indeed are woven together in a beautiful tapestry. This is a valuable work."
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Gerry Breshears and Mark Driscoll combine the thinking of a theologian with the experience of an innovative church leader to bring us fresh approaches to ministry that are more relevant without being less biblical. This book is an inspiring application of what it means for the body of Christ to be 'in the world but not of it.'"
Dan Jarrell, Teaching Pastor, ChangePoint Church, Anchorage, Alaska
