The book¿s classic truths have not changed. But the world we live in has. Christians in America have had their complacency shattered and their beliefs challenged.
With provocative stories from Christians weeping for their friends in the rubble of the World Trade Center, to new converts kneeling behind the razor wire of a Delaware prison, to unforgettable pictures of God¿s people around the world Colson and Vaughn punctuate prophetic analysis of the problems dogging the Church with striking models of what the Body must be in order to shine Christ¿s light in the darkness¿ and serve as a beacon of truth in a desperate world that is yearning for hope.

"The book draws upon politics, philosophy, and religion, demonstrating Colson's trademark breadth in its quest to foster Christian community." (Publishers Weekly)
This should be a 'must read' for all new believers, or even all believers! The history he shares about how the Church shaped nations is enlightening; the stories of oppressed Christians are moving; and, the outline of what the body should be is inspiring. Now go and do likewise....
Unlocks many errors and incorrect beliefs in the present Body of Christ. A real eye-opener!
