Explores how the creation mandate, Israel as God’s covenant people, Jesus’ teaching about God’s reign, the disciple community around Jesus and the nature and development of the early church all contribute to understanding what the church is and should be. Also explores implications of our view of church for questions of leadership, mission and ethical living.
