Many have noted a decline in many aspects of the American church. By appealing to Christians' desire for holiness, Elaine Heath advocates an ancient three-fold way of purgation, illumination, and union in returning to the church's mission. Heath looks at contemplative spirituality as the way out of the church's predicament, not actively engaging others in witness but rather attempting to bring the church back to outreach by looking inward. Less a manual about how to evangelize and more a crazy quilt of mystic biographies, a diagnosis of the church, and a memoir concerning a friend's religious journey, this book discards traditional evangelistic techniques for a focus on a contemplative vision for evangelism.
