Seemingly unpretentious, this simple book jolts us with a robust, resolute, warmly inspiring, goose-bump-generating vision of the biblical portrayal of God's plan for the church. It is not, however, an ivory tower vision uninformed about the challenges and realities of the church in real time. The synthesis of aspiration and reality provokes a welcome sense of genuine hope as the church struggles to be the church.
