a€œI pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.a€Too often, these words of Jesus from John 17:20-21 seem like an unreachable ideal. But in Your Church Is Too Small, John Armstrong shows that Jesusa€™ vision of Christian unity is for all Goda€™s people across social, cultural, racial, and denominational lines.a€œWith attention to his own pilgrimage and growth in ecclesial awareness, John Armstrong explores here the evangelical heart and ecumenical breadth of churchly Christianity. I am encouraged by his explorations and commend this study to all believers who pray and labor for the unity for which our Savior prayed.a€ a€“ Timothy George, senior editor, Christianity Today.a€œDr. Armstronga€™s irenic approach should make it easy for Christians, whether Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant, to engage the challenging thesis of the book, while recognizing that there remain points of doctrine between them which will require further clarification. Anyone concerned about either evangelism or Christian unity should read this book, and take seriously its call for both mission and ecumenism.a€ a€“ Fr. Thomas A. Baima, Provost, University of Saint Mary of the LakeJohn Armstrong is one of those Evangelical theologiansa€”may their tribe increase and the valley abound with their tentsa€”who know that full obedience to Christ embraces the historical transmission through which we know him. This book refuses to scale down the bearer of that traditiona€”the historical church, that isa€”or reduce the authority of its voice. a€“ Fr. Patrick Henry Reardon, senior editor, Touchstone a€œIt's a must for anyone who has grown weary with Christian divisiveness and schism and longs to discover ways of strengthening the bonds that unite us in the Spirit of Christ.a€a€“ Chuck Colson
