The Church and her Gospel ministry need to be (re) introduced in the most unlikely of places. Not as old news, but as relevant and timely. It is not necessary and even unlikely to try and turn the clock back to a Christendom context…to the good old days. The Church with her evangelical ministry can once again be the answer for those searching for direction and stability. It is through the ministries of men and women that we reveal to a Post-Christendom world that God cannot be hidden…that God’s new creation is now, is here and for all those longing for it.
By reading the book, the author affirms that whatever holds the readers back…holds them down…or keep them from ministry in this Post-Christendom age will not withstand the presence and calling of a loving God that calls us out of exile to reclaim our communities, regain our cities and recover our churches.
