Rick Shrader‘s Review:

Leith Anderson writes about local church polity much like George Barna or Elmer Towns write about church movements. Anderson offers many unique insights into different kinds of churches that exist today though Anderson himself is more on the culturally relevant side seeing culture as ideologically neutral. He says, ‘‘That is not to say that absolute or historic revelation is lessened or minimized, but it will be presented differently. It is like a marketing decision . . . ’’

I enjoyed reviewing the different forms of churches in America and I learned some good things. Because I could not see “culture” as ethically neutral as Anderson does, I could not employ many of his ideas for making the church quite so ‘‘culturally relevant.’’
