The Church: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic

The Nicene Creed describes the church as, "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic." What does this mean, and how does thinking along these lines affect the church today? These are issues raised and answered by Richard Phillips, Philip Ryken, and Mark Dever.

I appreciate this text because the authors strive to be biblical. Additionally, they write with an eye on the history of the church instead of operating only in "the now." As a bonus, all three authors are genuinely good writers. They keep the discussion interesting and relatively easy to read.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in the church. Order it here.
