The Nature of the Church


James L. Fleming 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


From the Introduction: It is our purpose to examine these developments to discover, as best we can, what were normal and good in contrast with those that reveal apostasy. With these results in view we hope to be in a better position to analyze our present condition and to point out at least some of the things needed to produce the conditions in the church that reasonably might have been expected to exist had their been only normal development without apostasy. It is the author’s hope that he may contribute something toward this end.—Albert F. Gray
