Every time the church adopts the surrounding culture’s values, it dies a little. Often it is brought to the brink of the grave. In every age, the church has had to wrestle for its very life. Paul’s letter to the Philippians cuts across the misplaced values of a self-centered culture.

Destroying Our Private Cities, Building Our Spiritual Life is a lay commentary, written in a homiletical and expositional style, that enables readers to hear Paul’s argument through Philippians and how the church’s flirtation with individualism has affected our faith and the life of the church. The danger of our privatized, modern faith is exposed. Both personal and church-corporate solutions to have “the mind of Christ” are given.

Destroying Our Private Cities, Building Our Spiritual Life offers the lay reader insight, and offers pastors and Bible study leaders plenty of expositional depth on Paul’s letter to the Philippians.

Why I wrote Destroying Our Private Cities:

  • I wanted to write a readable commentary my mother could read without dumbing-down the content
  • Our contemporary and privatized spirituality seems divorced from church-life. It’s not so much loving the church that matters, it’s loving a church that counts
  • My transition from a church-centered ministry to a human service-centered vocation gives me a new perspective on faith and church-life
  • My respect, admiration, and gratefulness to those in human service vocations--they work so hard to help others, and sometimes with little to no recognition, and equally low pay.
