Letters to the Church

What Jesus might write to churches today

Unlike John of Patmos, we can't convey the words of the risen Christ. But we can imagine what words of correction and comfort Jesus would give to the churches today. That's just what seven persons did at the end of the last decade. Christianity Today asked these writers to use their prayerful creativity to write letters to different segments of the church as though they were speaking for the risen Christ.

Patterned after the letters to the seven churches of Asia Minor in Revelation 2–3, these contemporary church leaders have tried to discern what Christ might say through them today. How would he challenge and correct different segments of the church? How would he encourage and comfort them? While the words that follow aren't inspired, our hope is that they will be inspiring.
