At present, the Western world is confronted with an alarming downward trend in the vitality of the Christian church. Several generations of pandering to the dominant cultural values of consumerism, individualism, an esteem of “success” judged overly much by business principles and the bottom line, and an obsession with hero-worship, have produced an American church that is marked by shallow preaching, sporadic discipleship, a commodification of worship, and an unsatisfied longing for a Jesus who is real, transcendent, holy, and life-changing. Any response worthy of consideration must be multifaceted, rich, and missional. Complex problems require more than simple, cosmetic solutions.
