    Sider does a good job of identifying how Christians have gone off course. Leaving behind the commands Jesus gave many among us wander like sheep gone astray into a variety of ministries which are actually conforming to the world. Worse yet many Christians live lives that are indistinguishable from those who do not claim Christian faith. A well-written quick read that hits the nail on the head.

    Sider is one more voice calling out to the church in America saying, "come out" from the culture! Sider states his case clearly: Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand. I personally find statistics boring. The worldly kingdoms and its culture are dead. Yet, I understand it helps in establishing the major problem evangelicals are facing. I believe every Christian should read this book. However, I do want to take Sider's message a bit further. Christians should spend little to no time involving themselves in politics. The great temptation that Jesus resisted, we too often embrace. The Christian should acknowledge the doctrine of the two kingdoms and withdraw from the idea that making laws and restraining sinners is the work of the Kingdom of God. Sider is right that "the world is passing away." We would do well to notice its full implications on our lives, as we usher in a kingdom "not of this world." I strongly agree that churches today would strengthen if they made it harder to join. I disagree that denominations are advantageous to the cause of Christ. However, I too acknowledge the need for supervision, guidance, accountability, and unity among the church today. The church in America needs something more authentic to early Christianity. I believe overall Sider is pointing us in the right direction.
