In this powerful book, “The Local Body”, my friend, the scholar-preacher E J Kemper, makes the doctrine of ecclesiology extremely practical. He masterfully, creatively, accurately, and truthfully paints a beautiful picture of the local church using the biblical metaphor of the human body. As I read through the pages of this very practical yet theologically rich book, I can’t help but think how excited I am that I will have the opportunity to share this book line by line, page by page, and chapter by chapter with my own congregation. I strongly recommend that you do as well! We give God praise for this timeless treasure being added to the body of faith.
Soli Deo Gloria,
