Are you working harder at church these days but enjoying it less? Are you wondering why, amid so much Christian church activity, American life seems to be angrier and more fragmented and stressful? Why isn't the Body of Christ more powerful in shaping culture? Galen Blom and Bob Baldwin take a fresh approach to these questions in The Missing Church: The Power of Being the Body of Christ in the Family, Neighborhood and Workplace, and the answer is profoundly simple: the church has little influence on our society because it is missing from the people groups that actually exercise dominion in our culture-our families, our local neighborhoods, our places of work, and our schools. But how can the church be present in the family and in a suburban neighborhood? And isn't it illegal for Christians to be the church at work or at school? Blom and Baldwin trace God's plan for human society from Genesis through the New Testament. His Word has much to say about what Christians are to be together as Christ's Body within these strategic people groups. The good news is God's call is t something additional we have to add to our already busy lives. It is simply a call to live in community that adds wholeness and meaning to every part of life. Let The Missing Church help you see church in a new way.
