"Community of Christ" as an alternative label to 'church' ... great idea.

My understanding of the original term, ekklesia, is that it signified something more akin to a town hall meeting of the community without the religious overtones that 'church' now has (not to mention 'church' as a building, corporation, or time slot). Interesting that Christ said he would build his 'ekklesia' -- not his synagogue, which would have made more sense if it was simply about Word-based religious meetings.

As usual, nicely done Eric. Thanks for making this book available in this venue.
