In McChurched, Stan Moody tells us of the ?Thousand Points of Light,? a vision that could be bursting from candles of faith flickering from the church for all to see. Moody reflects how little light and how much darkness is being displayed in the influence of this new moralistic wave.Nevertheless, Moody has long believed in a Church in Exile?a community of faithful believers no longer at home in McChurch. Moody calls us to dis-arm?from arms of fear, defense and destruction?to arms of faith. Moody?s message is that in every community in today?s America there are ?A Thousand Tongues of Praise.? He offers this for their encouragement. ?We?ve ordered from the value menu and gorged on the extra-sized full-meal combos. The body of Christ is now bloated, lethargic and spiritually malnourished. Dr. Moody?s McChurched calls the Bride of Christ (the church) back to the lush banquet table overflowing with the fruit of the Spirit. This book is long overdue and should be devoured by all who hunger and thirst after righteousness. Come let us dine.? Karen Horst Cobb ??The Christian Right, having tired of trusting in the power of God to change hearts and nations, intends to override the transcendence of God over the State and replace it with the transcendence of the State over the church.? So says Stan Moody. His McChurched is an accurate refutation of the myth that the U.S. was ?founded on Christian principles? and a vivid demonstration of the basic emptiness of what passes for Christianity these days. At a time of intense debate about the role of religion in public life, Moody?s book could not be more timely.?H. R. Coursen
