What is the Church? Why does it need to exist, and why is it so important? In this important addition to the Good Portion series, Erin Wheeler unpacks what the Bible says about the Church and invites us to see the beauty of the Bride of Christ. She begins by ensuring that we understand what the Church is before turning our attention to the specific things that churches do.


This book not only ensures that our minds and hearts are filled with correct doctrine, but encourages us to take steps towards putting our understanding into practice.

Weighty and yet practical, Erin’s book is a rare find.  Her passion for the church is visible and contagious. Her clear and personal writing style makes this easy to read and accessible for a new believer, while full of rich teaching for the seasoned saint. Reading this book will change the way you relate to your local church.  If our churches are to be places that ‘protect and proclaim His glory to the world’ then they need to be filled with people who have been transformed by the truths of this book.

Adrienne Lawrence, Pastor’s Wife, Charles Simeon Trust instructor, Bible teacher
