The modern church is suffering from crises in identity, belief and involvement with the State. As you read this collection of the works of William Barker you will find that they are all connected.
The reason why the church has problems interacting with government is because it doesn't understand its mission, history and authority.
An internationally respected professor of Church history shows what the church should do and look for in creating proper relationships with governments, other faiths and society in general.
He also shows how we should deal with divisions inside the church and what role the Bible should play in defining its faith. Sit back in a comfy chair and let Will Barker shed light on some of the knottiest problems in the church. Then go out and put it into practice.
