Renowned scholar J.-M. R. Tillard defines what the flesh of the Church is for the New Testament and the period of the undivided Church. He enables readers to understand not the structure of God's Church but the living reality of grace for which this structure exists. He explains that the qflesh of the churchq is communion of life for humanity reconciled with the Father and with itself qin Christq.aquot;?This book includes an abundance of primary source material; it could serve an important function in a course on ecclesiology. Because Tillard?s passion for church unity is palpable, this work is an exhortation as well as an argument.
