Publisher's Summary

Many believe Charles Colson and Ellen Vaughn¿s The Body to be the watershed book of the past decade. It impacted the Church worldwide, encouraging Christians of diverse backgrounds to see themselves as part of the universal body of Christ. It challenged many to a new sense of unity, realizing that we blunt the Gospel message every time we divide over petty issues and personal turf. The book¿s classic truths have not changed. But the world we live in has. Christians in America have had their complacency shattered and their beliefs challenged.
With provocative stories – from Christians weeping for their friends in the rubble of the World Trade Center, to new converts kneeling behind the razor wire of a Delaware prison, to unforgettable pictures of God¿s people around the world – Colson and Vaughn punctuate prophetic analysis of the problems dogging the Church with striking models of what the Body must be in order to shine Christ¿s light in the darkness¿ and serve as a beacon of truth in a desperate world that is yearning for hope.

Even more relevant today. Very motivating!

This should be a 'must read' for all new believers, or even all believers! The history he shares about how the Church shaped nations is enlightening; the stories of oppressed Christians are moving; and, the outline of what the body should be is inspiring. Now go and do likewise....

A Necessary Read For All Christians!

Unlocks many errors and incorrect beliefs in the present Body of Christ. A real eye-opener!
