What does Christ think of the church In chapters of the Book of Revelation, by praise and reproach, by warning and exhortation, Christ reveals what he wants his church to be like in all places and at all timesIn this book, John Stott, known worldwide for his scholarly writing, explores the fascinating letters to seven churches of the ancient world with many insights for our church today My prayer is that this book may help church leaders grasp where Christ s priorities lie There is much here to call us to repentance and renewal, much to humble and shame us, much to warn us of the malice of our enemy, and much to incite us to fortitude and perseverance

    I suppose there are several books out there concerning the 7 ecclesial letters in Revelation, and this one is probably roughly par for the course Less thrilling than some other Stott works I ve studied, but he covers the bases ably The 7 letters are tailor made for a short sermon series, and if I do that one day, I imagine I will use this book I wish it wereexegetical and less surface y, hence the rating.

  2. Crossroads Ecc Crossroads Ecc says:

    What Christ thinks of the church is a question of great concern to all Christians What we ourselves think of it from the inside and what others think of it from the outside are also important But farsignificant is the view of Jesus Christ himself, since he is the church s founder, head and judge.

  3. David Campton David Campton says:

    A series of sermons now over 50 years old, but still the normative evangelical expostion of the Letters to the 7 Churches in Revelation A little dated when it starts dealing with current social issues, but the application is still valid, and the historical context is beautifully described.

    Good summary of the first 3 chapters of Revelation, and the significance of the churches to whom Jesus speaks.
