At a time in which the very word Church sounds a tone of dull irrelevance, the doctrine of the Church has suffered the studied neglect of many Christian leaders.  The persistent demands to market, manage, and grow the Church and to meet the felt needs of churched and unchurched all threaten to quench theological reflection on the abiding nature and mission of the Church.  But few activities bear greater promise as a starting point for renewing and reshaping the Christian Church than the work of theology.

In this book Edmund Clowney takes up that task, addressing along the way a variety of contemporary concerns: worship, mission, Church and culture, Church and state, Church order and discipline, the ministry of women, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, tongues and prophecy, signs and wonders.  He draws on decades of thinking and teaching about the Church as well as from his committed leadership and ministry within the Church.  Biblical, historical, systematic, and Reformed, The Church is a timely and provocative reflection on the life, order, and purpose of the household of God.
