Returning to the Biblical Foundations of the Church of the New Testament

After more than 100 overseas trips to more than 50 nations of the world, I can tell you that the church of the 21st century has lost her way.

This was usually guaranteed by the last minute arrival of reinforcements in the way of a hard charging, trumpet sounding Cavalry. Sometimes in real life the Cavalry never arrives….. I have had it...
