Well written and highly accessible, this book interweaves a thorough review of developments in Christian community from the first century to the present with powerful new discoveries in scriptural, theological, and historical research that has uncovered deep communal strands in the foundational literature and notions of Christianity. The result is a profound call for the renewal of Christian community and churches as crucial models and inspirations for the new search for wholeness in America.
This book will be enormously helpful to many kinds of Christians as they attempt to exemplify their faith in a society that often understands it far less than it imagines. -- Robert N. Bellah Compelling reading for searching individuals and church leaders who seek an eloquent vision and a practical guide to building inclusive, life-affirming community. -- Professor Karen L. King, The Divinity School, Harvard University
