“Have you noticed how many of the New Testament’s directives for sanctification are in the plural? God as ordained that growth in grace should occur in the communion of the saints. It will benefit Bible teachers, new Christians, and new members classes.” ~ J. Ligon Duncan
“The Communion of Saintscauses us to reflect on the corporate meaning and experience of our belief in Christ. Its thirteen chapters (appropriate for adult Sunday school classes) and leader’s guide provide stimulating applications that may revolutionize your church toward a more biblical fulfillment of the gospel.” ~ William S. Barker
“Phil Ryken and friends have given us a helpful meditation on chapter 26 of the Westminster Confession of Faith. Clear-headed and heart-warming, informed and informative.” ~ Mark Dever
