Over at lifeasmission.com, JR writes a well thought out and well defined review of George Barna’s revolution. In wondering whether he is really a revoltionary or not, JR discovers that Barna’s own conclusions are still to individualist and based too much on statistics and not enough on good theology for him to fit nicely into the books categories. I my mind JR is a radical, but not in the terms laid out in the book. His own ideals and theology keep him much more rooted in the community of faith that shapes and forms theology, to go along with the individualist route of the modern church.
