People are often curious and occasionally apprehensive about what the church is like. Not many people come sliding out of a reformed pipeline and straight into a pew - they come from all over the religious and non-religious spectrum. We don't want people to be surprised in a bad way about what they will encounter - thus this book. Although written for a Presbyterian church, it does not assume that only Presbyterians are reformed, happily many Anglicans, Lutherans, Baptists and others would place themselves under the 'reformed' banner and can find help in this little book.
"I can't imagine anything better [than this book] for teaching what it means to belong to "The House that Jesus Built" to new Christians who don't yet understand the church (and older ones who ought to!). Ralph Davis is a good friend, and a great bible teacher. Once again he has come up with a gem for us with this little manual on the church. Biblical, succinct, clear, fun and, above all, brief." "Prejudice Buster." "It is a kind of Brochure-cum-browser which enables people to make an informed choice about whether or not yours might be the church in which to settle...this book will dissolve the prejudices which many people bring through our church doors and win them for Christ and his church"--John Benton Managing Editor, Evangelicals Now In an age where everyone is offering to re-design the church, Ralph Davis, in this small booklet, winsomely, clearly and most of all Biblically reminds us that we have a designer of the church - Jesus Christ - and the glory and majesty of His design. This is a great instrument to remind, encourage and attract people to the bride of Christ and the body of Christ - His Church.--Harry L. Reeder Pastor of Preaching & Leadership, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama "I can't imagine anything better [than this book] for teaching what it means to belong to 'The House that Jesus Built' - to new Christians who don't yet understand the church (and older ones who ought to!). Ralph Davis is a good friend, and a great bible teacher. Once again he has come up with a gem for us with this little manual on the church. Biblical, succinct, clear, fun and, above all, brief."--William Philip Minister, The Tron Church, Glasgow
