“An open and engaging survey of the theology of church in its biblical roots, its historical development, and its setting in today’s complex world.  Building on the work of leading historians, sociologists, and theologians, Sanks has produced a coherent and lively synthesis.  As an overview of the church in its many aspects, both human and divine, this work has few rivals.”
Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., Laurence J. McGinley Professor of Religion and Society, Fordham University, Author of Models of the Church
