'Until we begin to offer the lost souls of our consumer culture that abundant delight that is woven into the fabric of creation and is none other than the glory of God himself, I suspect we'll continue to be the self-obsessed and self-doubting Church we are often perceived to be.' From the introduction Rescuing the Church ...examines how people are initiated into a consumer culture during childhood and thus drawn into pursuing a vocation as consumers by means of various quasi-sacramental rites and practices. The upshot of this is that the church today is composed primarily of men and women whose lives are situated more within a consumer culture than within a distinctively Christian one. In order for the church to free itself, the author believes it must reclaim a sacramental identity that is grounded in a narrative tradition and realized in real, local worshipping communities.
