The church is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets (Eph. 2:20). In his penetrating manner, Art seeks to capture the flavor and essential meaning of this most holy foundation. Few have adequately understood that unless the Church is built on this foundation, it is simply not the Church in any authentic way. I first heard Art speak back in 2005 and was completely clueless as to what he was saying though I felt a weightiness on my spirit. I began to read this book and the Lord convicted me of so many things regarding the state of the church, the condition of my own heart, and why we must contend for the restoration of the church as seen in the book of Acts.
