Written by a biblical scholar and church elder, this ambitious and thought-provoking guide is designed to examine and explore beliefs that are prevalent in the evangelical Christian world today. New churches and denominations are emerging at a rapid pace, but are these congregations worshipping God in the way that He intended? Using Old and New Testament scripture, Dorricott traces the concept of God living among a people on the earth and shows how the Bible provides answers to fundamental questions such as:
- Why are there so many Christian churches?
- Can we be true Christians without belonging to a church?
- Is the apostles' teaching relevant in the twenty-first century?
- Is the New Testament just first-century history, or is it also a blueprint for us?
- Is all worship acceptable to God?
By challenging all true followers of Jesus Christ to set aside conventional thinking and focus on the true meaning of God's house, Dorricott provides a path of genuine study and reflection that will guide all those who wish to examine and reaffirm their service in unity to God.
