Reviews

"Offers a fresh revisioning of the whole Christian enterprise . . . As the calendar makes its transition to the 21st century one senses a tremendous hunger in evangelicalism for a faith that can make the transition well. Rodney Clapp will be one of the most important North American voices participating in the conversation about how to make that transition."--Prism
"A wonderful, thoughtful, well-written call for the church to be the church. To read it is to be both challenged and encouraged."--Chrisitanity Today
