I am convinced that the people of God, whose faith has been undermined by cultural accommodation, have not been adequately trained in the spiritual discipline of God’s narrative and the Christian heritage of the church. . . . The rediscovery of God’s narrative and its implications for ministry are the most pressing spiritual issues facing the church at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
