    The Great Giveaway is an honest and wide-ranging guide for everyone who is concerned about the growing "worldliness" of the evangelical movement. Fitch's analysis is both trenchent and biblical and his suggestions are faithful to historic Christian orthodoxy, though perhaps a bit difficult to implement. Despite a couple of problematic issues that I will discuss further below, I wholly recommend this book to all those concerned that we as evangelicals are losing a sense of what it means to be the church. In the end, not only has Fitch made accessible the withering critique of modernity offered from McIntyre, Yoder, Milbank, and Hauerwas, but he has done a great service for the evangelical community in humbly offering suggestions for the the local gathered community; when faithfully shaped by God's revealed Word and the practices of being the church, it can and must be the site of our apologetics, justice, worship, spiritual formation, and moral education. Unlike many who proclaim themselves as participating in the Emergent conversation, Fitch seems profoundly committed to the Christian tradition, and his embrace of a postmodern mode of analysis is employed not with a sense of smug sophistication, but to call the church back to greater faithfulness. For those Christians who see no problem in our being transformed by the pattern of this world, we ignore the eloquent criticism and ecclesiological vision of David Fitch at our peril. Highly Recommended. Daniel Kruse Gloier, Christian Book Previews.com
