Introduction : the great giveaway : toward an postmodern evangelical ecclesiology -- Our definition of success : when going from ten to a thousand members in five years is the sign of a sick church -- Evangelism : saving souls beyond modernity : how evangelism can save the church and make it "relevant" again -- Leadership : when evangelical pastors end up in moral failure : the missing link between the pastorate and the virtues -- The production of experience : why worship takes practice : toward a worship that forms truthful minds and faithful experience (not merely reinforces the ones we walked in with) -- The preaching of the Word : the myth of expository preaching : why we must do more than wear scrolls on our foreheads -- Justice (our understanding of) : practicing redeemed economics : Christian community in but not of capitalism -- Spiritual formation : the need for more preaching (and penance) in the psychologist's office, or why therapy never should have left the church in the first place -- Moral education : evangelicals and the training of our children to be good Americans : the example of character education in the public schools -- Conclusion : let us return to the practices.
