Born and raised in America, Jones spent his years traveling and speaking to the world. On the principle that we must get away from a place in order to really see it, Jones returns to his native country with both discerning criticism and deep appreciation. Through this book, he traces the achievements and failures of the American dream. What do Jesus and the Kingdom mean to the Western world today? With understanding and objectivity, we are led to see both the pitfalls and the possibilities of our culture and democracy. Jones observes that the possibilities are all rooted in God’s revelation of Himself in Christ. Jones also includes in this book the proposal of a Federal Union of the churches, a most insightful and workable plan to unite denominations and heal the divisions in the body of Christ.
