3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Matthew W. Rondeau on May 7, 2010
Format: Paperback
As a pastor I was thoroughly encouraged by this book as it reminded me of the goal toward which we should be pressing despite the plethora of current erroneous ecclesiology. Many concepts have become the sine qua non of evangelical Christianity; such as the necessity of homeschooling, the necessity of combating terrorists, the necessity of spreading democracy, the necessity of avoiding noticeable sins like smoking and drinking, and the necessity of upholding the traditions of each respective church. Dr. Black refocuses our attention upon what matters most; namely the Gospel and its proliferation throughout the nations. Dr. Black reminds us that it is not our job to legislate or control morality in the world, but it is our job to share the gospel. Consequently the gospel will transform the morality of the world by grace. Law has never been able to change behavior and therefore it is strange that the religious right would rely so much upon legislation. This book is a plea to return to biblical Christianity; Christianity that treasures and proclaims that Jesus died for us and consequently that we should take up our crosses and follow Him.

David Alan Black writes about the Church's priorities - the need to put God's will and kingdom first, rather than man's will as expressed in politics. Black challenges Christians to consider God's kingdom first in terms of ministry. Worldly archies, which too many Christians have sought first, have no "actual power or ultimate significance." Churchly archies, structures of power concerned with race, gender, social standing, replaced the anarchic ekklesia of the early church. Black is indebted to two books, besides the Bible, for this booklet: Vernard Eller's Christian Anarchy and Jacques Ellul's The Subversion of Christianity.

From this topic, treated very briefly, Black writes of the need for Christians to take part in ministry. "But if we take seriously the idea that every member is a minister and that the clergy-laity distinction is unscriptural, then it follows that we cannot limit theological education to a select few" (loc 234 ).

Works for further reading offer a more comprehensive discussion of the substantial topic, (several of them Black's other books). The brief treatment here prompts significant questions, such as whether Christians should be passive, whether abstinence from politics isn't a condonation of actions of the politically active, and whether Christians can testify to God's benevolence without supporting social programs.

Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was challenging and certainly eye-opening for me as a pastor/elder to read. There are so many things that we have allowed into our churches that are absolutely un-Biblical. I am very grateful for Dr. Black's honest insight and perspective and for his courage to share the truth about how our churches must return to building Christ's kingdom instead of our own.
