Was the church Jesus’ idea? In his book The Church: God’s Pilgrim People (IVP Academic), David Zac Niringiye offers a biblically-rooted theology of the church, ranging from its Old Testament roots to its New Testament congregations to a vision for today’s church. The author is a pastor and teacher in Uganda. Roger Olson says, “Here is a narrative-based theology of the church, the people of God, from the life experience and mind of an African theologian. It offers a prophetic challenge to common Christian confusions about and distortions of the church. Every Christian concerned about the state of the church should read it.”
