Title information

Schenck unpacks the life and world of the early church, revealed through the non-Pauline epistles—those biblical correspondences to churches from Peter, James, Jude, and John—and also through the challenging and rich symbolism of letters written to the Hebrews, as well as John's prophetic Revelation.

At every step along the way, Schenck pauses to share "life reflections"—specific and practical applications of the text to modern life and ministry today. Discover what God had in mind for the church when he commissioned it to make disciples, and how the church today is called to carry on this same supreme purpose.

Kenneth Schenck is academic dean and professor of New Testament and Christian ministry at Wesley Seminary in Marion, Indiana. Dr. Schenck is the author of several books, including God's Plan Fulfilled, Paul—Messenger of Grace, Paul—Soldier of Peace, and Paul—Prisoner of Hope.
