Unfashionable explains what it means to be out of style in culture - to be aligned with God's ways with regard to community, lifestyle, work, money, relationships, worship, and the church. The promise of reclaiming an authentic "out of this world" presence is that Christians can once again become a powerful renovating force for God in the world.
“In this windowless world, God, transcendence, and mystery have become less and less imaginable…. Everything’s produced, managed, and solved ‘this side of the ceiling,’ which explains why so many people are restless and yearning, as I was, for meaning that transcends this world–for something and Someone different.”
“Here you will learn how we must contextualize, how we Christians should be as active in Hollywood, Wall Street, Greenwich Village, and Harvard Square (if not more) than the halls of Washington, DC. And yet, there are ringing calls to form a distinct, ‘thick’ Christian counter-culture as perhaps the ultimate witness to the presence of the future, the coming of the Kingdom.”
