"St. Cyprian said that those who did not have the church as their mother could hardly have God as their father. The church, after all, was already the fourth 'I believe' in the primitive Creed, after the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But the Daveys plunge us further back, into the Ephesian letter of St. Paul, probing his deep and rich metaphors for the church and pointing us back to what we have been losing: not 'fresh expressions' or organizations or institutions or consultants--but the local church. Entirely refreshing!"

--Paul Friesen, St. Paul's Church, Halifax, and Atlantic School of Theology

"Alan and Elizabeth invite us on joyful journey to listen to the music of Paul's ancient letter for shaping our lives in the community of faith. There's mystery, contemplation, and wisdom in gentle abundance."

--Norm Allen, Touchstone Ministries
