In The Church Called Tov, Dr. Mcknight and Laura Barringer explore the concept of Tov (Hebrew word in scripture used for “good”), and how that word provides a map for the Church can go from where we are to where we should be as the body of Christ; a place that creates cultures that resist abuses of power and promotes healing, safety, and spiritual growth.
