Ecclesiology: Christ's Treasure on Earth is a textbook style monograph covering the topics that compromise the study of ecclesiology. These include: the nature of the church, its relation to Israel and the kingdom; its origin, membership and attributes; church standards, discipline and authority; church leaders; systems of church governance; the Lord's supper and baptism; and the church's mission and destiny.
The author, L. Thomas Holdcroft taught theology in college classrooms in the United States and Canada for nearly four decades. The book's content reflects classroom discussions and special concerns of students. This revised edition should not only provide content for the systematic course on ecclesiology, but it will also prove useful as a reference source to all who pursue insights into biblical ecclesiology.
Dr. Holdcroft now lives in Canada where he devotes much of his time to his writing activities.
