    The church is often idealized (or demonized) as the last bastion of a bygone era, dragging its feet into new moralities and new spiritualities. We guard our doctrine and our piety with great vigilance. But we often fail to notice how eagerly we’re embracing, in the structures and practices of our churches, a culture of unreflective speed, dehumanizing efficiency and dis-integrating isolationism.

    In Slow Church, Chris Smith and John Pattison invite us out of franchise faith and back into the kingdom of God, where people know each other well and love one another as Christ loved the church.
