What is held about the nature of the Church is of great importance because it is intimately connected with what is held about the nature of Christ.

One of the great dangers of modern thinking, especially reformed thinking, is to be too narrow in our views. We believe that our local expression of the universal church is the only possible way for it to be done. MacGregor helpfully corrects this error by examining the doctrine of the church in the reformed tradition. Here are the strengths of the book:

He emphasizes the corporate nature of the church in the reformers and later reformed theology. This is a great corrective to viewing the church
Matt Carpenter
This book opened my eyes to the richness of the Scottish Reformed tradition. Before anyone who is Reformed pronounces someone else a heretic, he should read this book. It explains how catholicity was present in the earliest Scottish Presbyterians and how much of that has been lost. That chapters on baptism, communion, and bishops were very helpful.

One caveat though; the author brings a historical-critical perspective of the Scriptures with him. It is not blatant, but obvious enough if you know

Excellent treatment of the doctrine of the church. This one is particularly helpful for its explanation of ordination and the early Scots polity.
Excellent. A bit liberal in places, in passing, but on the nail regarding Calvin, union with Christ, sacraments and the church.
This should be required reading for everyone in the Reformed tradition.
