How far has the church as we know it today departed from the life that the New Testament church radiated? How realistic is it to suggest that the contemporary church is expected by God to demonstrate the same life, love and power? Do the present forms of the church restrict or inhibit God’s purposes instead of enabling them?
These are vital issues addressed in this short book that contrasts the biblical church that is to be apostolic in nature, with what has become traditional church that many know from experience. The purpose in doing this is not to be critical or negative, but to see how the church today can fulfil its destiny through obedience to God’s call and purpose, and so become His powerful instrument for impacting the world with the truth of the gospel.
