Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is an excellent, comprehensive study of change and diversity in American lifestyles, their major groupings (left, right, middle), how the mainline churches can minister to each group, and the predominant theological style appealing to each. Sample maintains the firm conviction that Christ is already in all these cultures, transforming them, yet he also delineates practical strategies for churches and their ministers. Much of this book could be of use to Roman Catholics as well.
