The Biblical Ideal for the 21st Century
What did the Lord mean when He said, "I will build my church"? What is "the church"? What were His purposes for forming it? With what resources did He endow it? Did He provide guidelines for its structure and operation? Did He intend that its function be connected essentially with its mature and purpose?
This book attempts to answer these questions by first establishing the primacy of Scripture in all matters pertaining to the church, then moving on to explore the nature of the church, the character and life of local churches, and the autonomy and interdependence that govern interaction between them. In the process Understanding the Church gives us a clear picture of what the church can and should be in the twenty-first century.
The essays presented in this volume were originally delivered at a colloquium sponsored by Grace Bible Chapel in St. Louis, Missouri. They were subsequently published in The Emmaus Journal, the theological organ of Emmaus Bible College, Dubuque, Iowa. Various other essays were compiled into another book, Understanding the Trinity.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
