Much has been written, and much has been said about the decline in mainline North American Protestantism. Sophisticated sociological and theological analyses have posited a number of solutions to the problem. While this analysis is helpful, much of it fails to see the simple reality behind the problem: a loss of essential spiritual fervor. Stewart's ministry, both within Hope United Methodist Church in Detroit and in numerous congregations and conferences where he has preached, lectured and taught, has been spent calling Christians back to a vital relationship with Jesus Christ and transformative experiences of the Spirit. Stewart brings together the best of his writing on the problems of the African-American church and Protestantism. The reader will find here important guidance on how to establish a congregation that is genuinely lay-led, how to move the gospel from the church building out to the neighborhood and onto the street corners, and how to preach genuine, scriptural holiness to a skeptical, relativistic audience. Throughout, Stewart resounds his hallmark message: the church has failed because its leaders have failed to develop and maintain a fervent, personal devotion to our Lord. To those looking for hope and new life in a church grown spiritually cold, this book speaks a powerful word.
