Show synopsis A newly released special edition of the life-changing classic from Charles Colson. Once every generation, a book comes along that defines debate, shapes attitudes, and changes society. The Body is such a book. Because its message is so powerful and timeless, The Body -- winner of the 1993 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion and the ECPA Gold Medallion as Book of the Year -- is now presented in a special edition-version that includes a fresh new introduction by the authors and the comprehensive study guide. In this watershed book, Colson pulls no punches: The church is in an identity crisis. He dares Christians to renounce the petty, sectarian divisions that blunt the church's witness in the world and calls us to affirm our oneness even as we celebrate our diversity. Provocative and insightful, The Body will inspire discussion and debate for years to come -- and it just might be God's tool to challenge His people to return to the glorious, holy vision for which He created the church.
