The Doctrine of the Church: A Baptist View by John Thornbury. 216 pages. Paperback. This book is not intended as an exhaustive treatment of ecclesiology. That subject, as commonly understood, embraces all aspects of church organization and polity. Some of these important matters fall beyond the province of this book. We are primarily concerned about one question, "What is the church?" To be more precise, we will inquire into the exact meaning of the word "church" in the New Testament. As a secondary point of interest, we will inquire as to what Christians, particularly Baptists, have believed on this question down through the centuries. This book is somewhat polemical, since one of its primary objectives is to refute a theory of the church which is now over one hundred years old. We refer to the view of Landmark Baptists that the church of the New Testament always is a literal, physical assembly of Christians. In this book we will examine this niew particularly as it was advocated by its original exponents: J.R. Graves, J.B. Thomas, and B.H. Carroll.
