He lives in Durham, North Carolina.

The book is so easy to read yet the message from Chapter after Chapter is confronting and relevant to today.
The authors seek to walk that very fine line between seeming to say that the Church needs to be a community that is "separate" from the world and thus not engaged with Society whilst very clearly making the point that the Community HAS to be engaged and seeking to interact with our Society. For everyone's benefit. I believe the Authors have given us an incerdible gift in the way they have shared their wisdom and spiritual concerns.
The Book is full of great one liners with many of them challenging us in he Church to realise we are no longer worth criticising because the Church in many ways has lost its "saltiness" It is no longer a "LIGHT"
Thought provoking and very readable
Millennial and Gen Z readers should continue to read despite baby boomer obsession/fixation of “The Bomb™️” and “The Vietnam War,” choosing to focus on the principles shown through their frequent use as illustrations by the authors.
Of particular helpfulness is the designation of Church life as inherently political and adventurous. There is indeed something peculiar about the Church the resurrected Son of God. When the presence and substance of Church is viewed truly as defined by our God in Christ, we have opportunity to joyfully exhibit this peculiarity.
I am in agreement with the authors that "Resident Aliens" is indeed a hopeful book. The substance of this hope isn't new, but rather renewed. This work has the potential to continue to stimulate the Christian imagination of all who will engage.
