As the author explains, the book aims to present an overview of ecclesiology, goal : "It seeks to answer questions about the nature and origin of the Church, not only as an institution but also in its deeper reality: did Christ will the Church, how is it configured, who belongs to it and how do other people relate to it?

It also deals with development, mission statement and the destiny of the Church: what can and cannot change in the Church and why, the role of the Church in the cultural and social spheres, how to combine the universal and the local in the Church, whether salvation is possible outside the Church, how the Church relates to the Jews and other religions, what will happen to the Church when history comes to an end. It also gives rise to very topical and personal questions: how can we speak of the Church today, can we "feel" with the Church, can we identify with it?
