"Could you tell me something about the church of Christ?" "Could you tell me the difference between the church of Christ and the ___________ church?" If you've ever asked questions like these--or been on the receiving end of them-- then this is the book for you. Expect to walk away from this book not only knowing what churches of Christ are all about, but also with a clear understanding of many of the beliefs and practices that distinguish them from other church groups. Don't be surprised, though, if you also walk away with a renewed conviction that being a New Testament-shaped church is a goal worth pursuing, and that doing things God's way really does matter.
