Item Description...
Overview
In this final volume of a four-volume series, Michael Horton explores the origin, mission, and destiny of the church through the lens of covenantal theology. Arguing that the history of Israel and the covenant of grace provide the proper context for New Testament ecclesiology, Horton then shows how the church is constituted through the ascension of Christ, the Pentecost, and the Parousia and continues to live by the Word and sacraments. Hortons goal is to demonstrate the potential of a covenantal model for integrating the themes of the church as people and as place, with an urgent concern for contemporary practice.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Must Read for Anyone Interested in Ecclesiology!  Sep 25, 2009
Horton's "People and Place", is a must read for anyone who is interested in ecclesiology, regardless of which theological camp you come out of. Drawing from a plethora of top quality theological scholars (Zizioulas, Farrow, Bonhoeffer, Willimon, to name a few), as well as his own sublime ingenuity, Horton weaves a convincing and thorough ecclesiological outlook through the lens of covenantal theology. Horton skillfully interacts and critiques many areas of our postmodern culture, from Derrida, to the marketplace, to the common Evangelical church. His premise is simple. The Church has turned inward in a downward spiral of self-autonomous spirituality which began with the Enlightenment. To delve deeper into oneself to find "true life" will only lead one deeper into isolation and farther from the God who is both creator and redeemer. The Word of God comes to us from the outside (extra nos) by grace, and calls us out of ourselves and to Christ, bringing grace, redemption and new life to it's hearers, while shattering the introverted, self-serving autonomous self. Horton reminds us that the Church is called to first hear the Word, and then to obey.

The primary mode (perhaps Horton would go as far as to say the only mode, thus of course not including general revelation) of God communicating to humankind is through His Word and Sacraments, which can only be found from within the Church which is the totality of people who have been saved by grace and the place where people come to salvation. This I find, is a bit problematic for a practical outworking of one's ecclesiology. How well does the Word have to be preached to meet Horton's covenantal demand of God speaking through the Word? How much or in what manner must the sacraments be administered for God's grace to be present and active within a Church community? These are but a few of the questions one must wrestle through with Horton's argument. Nonetheless, it is a superb piece of scholarship that should be read and wrestled through by any serious pastor or academic who is interested in engaging with ecclesiology, regardless of whether one is Reformed in his or her theology.
