Holiness and Ecclesiology in the New Testament
Brower, Kent†E. and Andy Johnson, editors

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2007 pp. xxiv + 385. $35.00

Description: Throughout the biblical story, the people of God are expected to embody Godís holy character publicly. Therefore, holiness is a theological and ecclesial issue prior to being a matter of individual piety. Holiness and Ecclesiology in the New Testament offers serious engagement with a variety of New Testament and Qumran documents in order to stimulate churches to imagine anew what it might mean to be a publicly identifiable people who embody Godís very character in their particular social setting.
