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.

Review: The Body

User Review  - Philip Esguerra - Goodreads

An excellent analysis of the state of the church today. It opens my mind about the church role in affecting change from without and within. The part of the church in communist eastern Europe is worth the time reading. I will read more of Chuck Colson's book. Read full review
