A new and better society has been the constant dream of men and women. Responding to this dream, John Stott has been attracted back again and again by Paul's letter to the young church at Ephesus. It portrays a new society of Christs making that stands out in bright relief against our colorless world of oppression, heartache, separation and division.
Paul's letter, with its exultant vision of a renewed human community, has, says John Stott, stirred me deeply. John Stott expounds Paul's theme of uniting all things in Christ by uniting his church and breaking down all that separates us from God, one ethnic group from another, husband from wife, parent from child, master from slave. Paul's insights are for all who want to build the church into the new society God has planned it to be.
