The Body: Being Light in Darkness

by Charles Colson

Hardcover, 1992





In this 1993 ECPA Book of the Year, Colson sounds a clarion call for the church to rise above traditional divisions and market-driven programs to be what God has called her to be-His people. In doing so, the Body of Christ can reclaim God's holy vision for His church. Truly a modern-day classic.

"Each of us, as we infiltrate the arena in which God has placed us." Very well written.
