What is God’s vision and plan for His church? 
His intent is that His people show forth His wisdom
to rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.
“[God’s] intent is that through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to His eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Ephesians 3:10-11
This book showcases the church in Ephesus through relevant Scriptures (Acts 18-20, Ephesians, 1 and 2 Timothy, and Revelations 2.)  
How did the church at Ephesus respond (and fail) to God’s vision for an ideal church? We will take a detailed look at the spiritual condition of this New Testament church, noting some of the changes that occurred over the course of time. We will also look at God’s instructions to get them back on track given through the apostle Paul and the letter to the Ephesians found in Revelation 2.
How does your own church live up to God’s ideal? How can you as a believer fulfill God’s intent to demonstrate His wisdom in the heavenly realms?
Study questions at the end of each chapter will facilitate review and application of the material discussed.

Richard Hockett and his wife Betty live in San Jose, CA. Dick is retired from the high-tech industry in Silicon Valley and has taught Bible studies for over 40 years. He is the author of five other books related to the wisdom of God as revealed in the Bible.
