Product Description

Christ and the Church (Truth Lectures 2023)

The studies contained in this volume were prepared in connection with the 2023 Truth Lectures, delivered in Athens, Alabama, July 17-20, 2023 on the campus of the Athens Bible School. This lectureship first developed as an opportunity for members of the board of directors and advisers of Truth Publications, Inc. and the staff of the CEI Bookstore (which it operates) to study and encourage one another while together for their summer board meetings. Over time, this expanded and has grown into a public event welcomed and anticipated in the Athens area and by Christians throughout the United States and beyond via live stream.

Christ and the Church, edited by Mark Mayberry and Kyle Pope. The establishment of His church was a stated intention of Christ while on the earth (Matt. 16:18). This was in keeping with the eternal plan of God (Eph. 3:9-11). This body of faithful believers purchased by the blood of Christ (Acts 20:28) is honored to be considered the bride of Christ (Eph. 5:24-32). How important it is that those who seek to follow Jesus in spirit and truth appreciate and value the role this assembly of His people should have in service to Him. May the studies that are offered in this book prove beneficial in accomplishing that goal.

Edited by Mark Mayberry and Kyle Pope
