This watershed book is one of the most important works published in this generation. In "The Body," Chuck Colson sounds a clarion call for the church to rise above sectarian divisions and market-driven programs and to be once again the people of God. "Why does Christianity fail to make a visible difference in the lives of so many believers?" Colson dares to ask. "Why, in the midst of a surge of religious interest and activity, do moral values continue to plummet?" Sucked into the tastes and values of secular culture, many Christians today have a "McChurch" mentality. They expect the church to cater to their felt needs with a broad menu of quick fixes and entertaining programs. For all God's people who are discontent with such a low view of the Body of Christ, this book offers a refreshing, invigorating challenge that can inspire us to rise above a stunted Jesus-and-me faith and reclaim God's holy vision for His church.
