The world needs radical Christianity, writes Howard Snyder. "In two thousand years the church has not noticeably improved on the gospel or the biblical picture of Christian community and discipleship. One of the clearest lessons from twenty centuries of experience is that the church has always been most faithful when it has gotten back to is biblical spiritual roots. "Snyder traces eighteenth-century revival preacher John Wesley's spiritual pilgrimage and then looks at his views on the church and the Christian life in order to shed light on radical faith today.
