Passionate call to reshape Church around community. I found it to be inspiring and infuriating. The emphasis on life together and not just Sunday morning fellowship is great, as is the relentless practicality evident throughout the book. Unfortunately, it is also relentlessly low Church, and reshapes some of the defining marks of the Church in harmful ways. Chester is prone to overstatement, and he rides the pendulum all the way to the end on a number of issues. Strangely, (or maybe not so strangely) there is no chapter addressing worship, which in a book on Church is like explaining the gospel without mentioning that fellow from Nazareth.
