Item description for The Church As Counterculture (Suny Series in Popular Culture and Political Change) by Michael L. Budde & Robert W. Brimlow...
The question, "What does it mean to be 'the church'?" has always been among the most controversial and of vital concern to political, economic, and ecclesial leaders alike. How it is answered influences whether Christianity will be a force for legitimating or subverting existing secular relations of power, influence, and privilege. The Church as Counterculture enters the debates on Christian identity, purpose, and organization by calling for the churches to reclaim their roles as "communities of disciples" -- distinct and distinctive groups formed by the priorities and practices of Jesus -- to constitute a countercultural reality and challenge to secular society and existing power relations.
