The Crisis in the U.S. Church

A lot of people have given their opinion on what is ailing Christianity in the United States, here’s Walter Brueggemann’s take:

“… the crisis in the U.S. church has almost nothing to do with being liberal or conservative; it has everything to do with giving up on the faith and discipline of our Christian baptism and settling for a common, generic U.S. identity that is part patriotism, part consumerism, part violence, and part affluence.” — Walter Brueggemann [1]
