Dr. Tony Evans shows how the church is nothing less than the ongoing incarnation of Christ on earth -- a living body with a mission, a purpose, and an ultimate call to disciple the whole world. Verse by verse, Tony explores what Jesus really meant when He said, "On this rock I will build my church." And why you, no less than the apostle Peter, are one of the living stones that make up the mysterious structure that is the church today. You'll discover the church's mandate in the Great Commission and come to definitive conclusions about how it should be organized and what it should be trying to achieve. Book jacket.

Tony Evans defines the church in vibrant terms: it is a continuation of Christ's incarnation. As such, it is the most important spiritual institution in human history. He helps the church discover its identity and purpose for existence, and provides believers a biblically healthy context in which to grow and live out their lives. This book will inspire you to help make your place of worship all that God intends it to be.

All of us are familiar with the story of Humpty Dumpty, the figure from the children's nursery rhyme whose world was shattered after he had a great fall. He called on the best his world had to offer to address his problem-"all the kings horses and all the king's men." But the tragedy of the story is that none of these human powers could put Humpty Dumpty's life and world back together again. Apparently Mr. Dumpty had no biblically functioning church available to help him, because if he had he would not have had to call on the king in the first place. Now its one thing when a nursery rhyme character cannot find the help he needs to repair his shattered world, even when his problem is being attended to by the highest authorities the culture has to offer. But it's another thing altogether when real people in the real world discover that all the king's horses and all the king's men-can't fix society's deepest problems and address the people's deepest needs. This is where the church comes in, because the church is the most important institution on earth. The church, and only the church, has been commissioned by the sovereign Lord to be His representative agency in history.
