Book Review: Apostolic Foundations by Art Katz (Five Stars)

Book Review: Apostolic Foundations by Art Katz

Five Stars out of Five.

“There is nothing more opposed to the purposes of God than the well-wishing intentions that men perpetuate out of their own human and religious zeal.”

Remember the “apostolic and universal” phrase in the old creeds? Well, it meant something. Katz explains what and challenges us to apostolic living. Prepare to see yourself, your pastor, your congregation in an unflattering mirror. Brutally honest, yet encouraging.

Well-written, if slightly archaic language. Katz died in 2007, but writes like people spoke fifty years ago.

As is true of the best books I’ve read, as soon as I finished it, I flipped back and started again (with highlighter in hand).

“God will not force upon us the perfect if we are satisfied with the counterfeit.”
