The result of a three-year research project undertaken by The Gospel and Our Culture Network, this book issues a firm challenge for the church to recover its missional call right here in North America, while also offering the tools to help it do so.
The authors examine North America's secular culture and the church's loss of dominance in today's society. They then present a biblically based theology that takes seriously the church's missional vocation and draw out the consequences of this theology for the structure and institutions of the church.

The book is evidence of dilusional religious enthusiasm run amok and the rise of political evangelicalism in North America. If this trend, fomented by foreign war and fervent idealism, continues, rational scientific modes of human progress will be threatened.
