John Brinsley (1600-1665), was a puritan divine who was a powerful Reformed Gospel preacher and writer. Brinsley’s work in this volume encourages Christians to act accordingly in their relationship to one another as joint heirs in Christ, and in the confines of their relationship as members of the church body. It is extremely practical for today's reader. This is something neglected as a theological topic in the contemporary church. Brinsley’s text is Romans 12:4-5, “For as we have many members in one body…” Here we find the joint-members of the church in one body, and that one body recognized under the head of Jesus Christ. The reader learns the practical application of three points, 1. That there is a specific, biblical unity of the body; 2. That there is a plurality of members; 3. That there is a diversity of offices in the body for edification.
