In this 1993 ECPA Book of the Year, Colson sounds a clarion call for the church to rise above traditional divisions and market-driven programs to be what God has called her to be-His people. In doing so, the Body of Christ can reclaim God's holy vision for His church. Truly a modern-day classic.

Review: The Body

User Review  - Glen Smith - Goodreads

Colson is always a thoughtful and well-researched read. This was a treatment of prescient issues on the essence of the church, the believer's participation and what it means to be Christ's body in the world. The footnotes are always beneficial to read as well. Read full review
