Description

In Primitive Piety Ian Stackhouse takes us on a journey away from the safe world of suburban piety, with its stress on moderation and politeness, and into the extreme and paradoxical world of biblical faith.

As someone who has pastored churches in suburbia for the last twenty years, the author is convinced that so much that passes off as Christian faith falls short of the radicalism or primitivism that we see in the pages of scripture: a primitivism that includes honest lament, dogged prayer, raw emotions and heart-felt desire. In a culture in which there is every danger that we all look the same and speak the same, Stackhouse argues for a more gritty kind of faith - one that celebrates the oddity of the gospel, the eccentricity of the saints, and the utter uniqueness of each and every church.
