This course takes its title from a book by Robert Shannon which “seeks to present briefly the nature and ministry of the church as it is found in the New Testament.” Shannon’s book is included in a volume titled The Church: A Trilogy, which can be ordered from the C.R.A.
The text for this course, The New Testament Church, includes thirteen chapters. Questions to be answered are found at the end of each chapter. To complete lesson 1, read through chapter 1 and answer the questions. Work on through the book in this manner.
