Many believe Charles Colson and Ellen Vaughn's The Body to be the watershed book of the past decade. It impacted the Church worldwide, encouraging Christians of diverse backgrounds to see themselves as part of the universal body of Christ. It challenged many to a new sense of unity, realizing that we blunt the Gospel message every time we divide over petty issues and personal turf.

The book's classic truths have not changed. But the world we live in has. Christians in America have had their complacency shattered and their beliefs challenged.

With provocative stories – from Christians weeping for their friends in the rubble of the World Trade Center, to new converts kneeling behind the razor wire of a Delaware prison, to unforgettable pictures of God's people around the world – Colson and Vaughn punctuate prophetic analysis of the problems dogging the Church with striking models of what the Body must be in order to shine Christ's light in the darkness and serve as a beacon of truth in a desperate world that is yearning for hope.

    " This book by Chuck Colson focuses on the implications of the body of Christ and is a great argument against lone gun Christianity. Colson and Vaughn weave together compelling stories with a strong call to the church, which is trademark Colson and which makes his books so readable. "

    " I actually read the earlier edition first and then got the newer one. This is a look at the Christian Church and the things we have in common rather than the things that seperate us. "

    " I almost always like Chuck Colson. Here he's promoting both holiness and the unity of the church. Excellent. "
