In his pursuit of the church in a post-Constantina, post-modern culture, Clapp lays bare some of the major myths concerning the church and offers us a picture of the church as a way of life. All spectrums of the theological landscape come under the gun as Clapp portrays a church that lives and witnesses in exile with two basic weapons …. community based friendship and sanctified subversion. This is a must read book for every church leader looking for a view of the church that will speak to the post-modern world.
