Whats Right With The Church
The early believers of Jesus Christ knew that they were not just members of an organization, nor were they just an extension of Old Testament Judaism. They knew that they were followers of the living Lord Jesus Christ. They were members of a thing called the church. Through the centuries, the church has been the most powerful transforming force in history. Yet in America many observe it as anemic and powerless. Author Elmer Towns contends that there is good news, there are many things that are still right with the church. What's Right With the Church affirms the positive things that are present in the church today, and what will carry it forward as a transforming force, no matter the expression, history or culture.
