The Great Giveaway
author: David E. Fitch
Toward an evangelical postmodern ecclesiology
Has the contemporary evangelical church given away much of what it means to be the body of Christ? Indeed it has, argues David Fitch. The North American church has largely conceded its unique calling by relinquishing traditional church functions and adopting modern methods. As a result, the church’s role in spiritual formation, leadership, worship, and other essential functions has become barely distinguishable from other societal institutions.
The Great Giveaway examines the many practices of the church, details how each has been compromised by modernity, and offers suggestions for how the church might recover these practices in a biblically faithful manner.
