This book is an exploration surrounding the issues of being church in the twenty-first century and a journey toward a community that is inclusive, messy, honest, purposeful, generous, vulnerable, sustainable, and diverse. Many people today believe that churches are simply out of touch with reality at best or judgmental and exclusive at worst. And yet the Jesus we serve is seen to be forgiving, wise, generous, and gracious. Why is there such a disconnect? Steve Chalke seeks to reclaim the true heartbeat of the church--the passion to save not itself, but the world. In a work that is rooted in deep theology while being highly practical, he outlines a church whose mission and outlook is fully rooted in its understanding of a loving, welcoming God. A church that is inclusive, welcoming all people. A church that is purposeful, marked by a mission to equip its members in their frontline work. A church that is generous, vulnerable, and sustainable. What we need today is an intelligent church--not cerebral or intellectual, but rather joined up and authentic--a church that makes sense of both the Bible and of life.
