Embodying Our Faith

Tim MoreyEddie Gibbs

$24.99

Paperback
"Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."

^^Mohandas Gandhi famously critiqued the contemporary church with this pithy phrase. The challenge ever since has been for the church to look more like Christ.

^^Tim Morey had this challenge in mind as he oversaw the planting of Life Covenant Church in Torrance, California, and he keeps it in mind as he coaches other church planters in the Evangelical Covenant Church. In this book he brings his experience, combined with research and theological reflection, to help your church cultivate the irreducible qualities of an embodied apologetic: a community that is revealed by its faithful to be experiential, communal and enacted.
