In The People of God, Vonier continues his great study of the Church, begun in The Spirit and the Bride, by considering the nature and actions of the Church that define it as a people, a kingdom, and a Church. Beginning with the historical development of the people of God in the Old Testament, Vonier proceeds to show how the public and liturgical life of the Christian Church is essential to its special identity as a morally unified people. His notable exposition of the Lords Prayer and study of the Sacraments shows how these elements of the Christian life belong to the Churchs identity as a people, so that Where there is an altar, there is the people of God.
