Keith Giles adds his voice to the growing number of those who identify as Christians, but have objections to how churches operate in today's society.
This Is My Body: Ekklesia as God Intended calls for a return to what Giles refers to as a 'New Testament Christianity' and he repeatedly draws attention to Bible passages which describe a kind of church that would be foreign to many today. He bluntly writes, "I believe it's time the Church went out of business."
The book envisions a church that does not operate as a business enterprise with a 'CEO leadership' at the helm. Rather, Giles calls for a body of believers where all are empowered to act as ordained ministers in service to one another and society.
In This Is My Body, Giles provides a well researched basis and personal experience from which he draws his observations in a conversational easy-to-read manner.
The book is worth a read, especially for those who have fallen out of love with church.
