"The Church" alternately dense, practical

The Church (Contours of Christian Theology, #4)The Church by Edmund P. Clowney
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This did not meet my hopes. While solidly biblical, it was quite dense at times. Clowney did do a good job of explaining differences between Protestantism and Catholicism. I'm sure it will serve as a handy reference in the future.

The last third of the book is more practical, dealing with such issues as the church's relations to politics (balanced, I thought), women in ministry (complementarian), the gifts of the Spirit (cessationist), Wayne Grudem's take on prophecy, (against it), and the sacraments (pro-infant baptism).
