"If God is sovereign, then his lordship must extend over all of life, and it cannot be restricted to the walls of the church or within the Christian orbit."

Mindmap of James Eglinton's Trinity and Organism Ch 7
Mindmap of chpater 7 of James Eglinton's Trinity and Organism. Here herman Bavinck's ecclesiology is examined in light of the organic motif. The link between contemporary debates in the Netherlands and with neo-calvinism are made. Kuyper's distinction between church as organism and as institution and the distinction between the invisible and visible church are drawn upon.
This book of Eglinton provides an excellent overview of Bavinck's theology.
