Colson attacks the identity crisis of the Church in the 1990s. More than just getting involved or advocating church growth, this book crosses denominational lines and demands that we substitute a dynamic living faith for our current institutionalized religion. A prophetic look at where churches are heading while also tracing the Church's early roots and growth into the 1990s.
