I just finished reading “This is my Body: Ekklesia as God Intended” by Keith Giles. It is quite obvious that this book was written by a follower of Christ who passionately loves our LORD Jesus Christ, His transforming gospel and His Bride/those who comprise His Church.
Keith carefully and convincingly develops the glorious truth that the types and shadows of the Old Covenant temple, priesthood and sacrifice as foretold and promised in the scriptures found their ultimate fulfillment in the person and work of Christ with the new and better covenant ratified in His blood resulting in a temple that every member of the Body of Christ is being built into and where every individual is free to function as a priest offering acceptable spiritual sacrifices of praise, service and a life dedicated to Christ.
Giles reminds us that leadership in the Kingdom of God is one in which honorific titles are forbidden and real tangible sacrificial service and Christlike humility is how greatness is attained and is worthy to be emulated.
I really enjoyed reading this little book written by my brother Keith Giles, his sensitivity, humility and love for others shows throughout his presentation and I highly recommend it for all who are interested in seeking a more biblical ecclesiology. - Mike Hutchison
