This volume examines commitment in the context of the individual and institutional response to God's call to be God's people. “The call from God is a call to the altar, to the holy, in a simple do-able way,” explains the author. “Right now we are a little like an aborted African chant in the mainline church; there is a call, but no response.” Donna Schaper outlines various reasons for this disconnect between call and response, and she offers ten concrete ways of responding to the gospel through specific actions that will help persons reconnect with their commitment to be the people of God.
