Book Description

The church is the oldest surviving institution in the history of the world. It has changed lives and shaped nations. It has been loved, hated, and ignored in equal measure. But what is the church, and why is it important to understand its purpose in the world? This mini-guide, The Church, answers those questions and shows why the church matters much more than we might at first think.
