And it explores how churches can do a better job of representing Jesus to the world.Has the church become a barrier to faith? Is what our culture knows as the church a near approximation of Christs presence in the world? Or does the church give a distorted view of Jesus as businessman, showman, huckster, or fraud?Without abandoning love for the church or forgetting the biblical mandate for its presence in the world, Rubel Shelly explores a model for thinking of church in terms that are more personal than institutional.
