characters The Heart of the Church review The Heart of the Church 103 read ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Joe Thorn Identity and return from distracting pursuits   Useful for training in membership classes discipleship groups and elder boards and even for devotional reading The Heart of the Church is at once theological practical and experiential Readers will not simply be informed but led to believe in rejoice in and be transformed by the truth of God for. I m a little unsure what to make of this one It s the first of three volumes in a series that Thorn s writing to build the church the next two on the life and character of the church This book which is a very uick is a brief introduction to what the church believe Thorn rightly points out that churches can even in doing good things lose their proper focus which is the gospel He defines this focus the life death and resurrection of Jesus all of which accomplishes redemption and restoration for all who believe in HimThe rest of the book explains what Thorn sees as the essential elements of the gospel In doing so it disconnects at least on an explicit level from the expectations the series might have set there s little of ecclesiology here though what s here is important The problem is that it becomes a little too focusedThorn essentially presents a Reformed view which for the most part I don t disagree with but it goes beyond the essential elements of orthodoxy He seems to follow Luther and of course modern Calvinism none of which I d object to if he didn t finish his overview by describing this expanded explanation of the gospel as the defining truth for the Christian and the church He hits on definite atonement an idea that many churches would not hold to or at least not divide over again fine enough but precise than necessary In this work a church of 4 point Calvinists would not be part of the true churchAll of which I d be fine with in another setting Had he written a 300 page book What Is Reformed Theology and Why Does It Matter this would have been a good starting point As it is he doesn t have space to defend his positions A new Christian or someone new to these ideas might not accept them without support a Reformed thinker doesn t need this line so much and someone like Oliver Crisp would certainly offer generosity in what counts as either orthodox or Reformed and ostensibly what counts as the gospelSo I don t object to Thorn s writing per se but I m not sure it works as a stand alone book attempting to serve the purpose it does He s right and making a valuable statement in If the gospel is not the heart of a local church then something else will be It s just that he restricts that in a manner that I suspect only people already in line with his thinking will buy into given the limited space of the bookThat said Thorn s readable smart and clearly has a heart for his work I m just not sure that this book does what it s attempting It feels like a survey of a larger work of systematic theology and not necessarily the best way to approach 100 page on what the church should keep in mind Even so I m not un optimistic about the rest of the seriesBased on a NetGalley copy
