House Church and Mission

Full Product Description

For the whole of the most dynamic period of church growth there were virtually no buildings solely dedicated to Christian worship. Essentially, every meeting of the early church was a house-group meeting to pray, explore, worship and grow mission in private domestic households. In this study, Roger Gehring reveals the world-changing significance of house churches from the time of Jesus and through Paul’s ministry, shedding new light on the theological and social impact of early church history.

House Church and Mission provides serious students with a unique and comprehensive overview of surviving evidence relating to the home church movement of New Testament Christianity. Pastors, preachers and teachers will find a well-crafted discussion of what church really is and an exploration of the practical implications of house churches on outreach in our times.

Roger Gehring shows how early Christian ethics, leadership structures, and the growth of ecclesial concepts were all clearly influenced by the family households where believers lived and gathered. The book gives a focus to a rethink in the way to do church, and the church’s social and theological development in our century.

Roger W. Gehring is professor at George Fox Evangelical Seminary in Portland, Oregon. He has served on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ since 1972 at Arizona State University, the Free University in Berlin, and Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany.
