I really enjoyed Frost's earlier book, The Shaping of Things to Come, so I picked this one up without hesitation. It's a book written for those who find themselves on the outside of church, or somewhere between the church and culture, and it seeks to explore a vision for Christian living in this 'wilderness'.

In the first part of the book Frost explores the idea of the exile through God's people, and through Jesus himself as an exile. He then delivers something of a manifesto for non-institutional christian living, based around community, generosity, authenticity, service, and whole-life discipleship. Finally, he shows how Christians outside the mainstream church have the opportunity to model good attitudes back to society and the church, particularly where we have failed in the past on issues such as justice and the environment.

I should warn you that one or two friends who have borrowed my copy felt that Frost was overly dismissive of the institutional church, so if you're part of one it's best to be prepared for a bit of a critique - but critique is important, and we must value those that can offer it gently and intelligently. Personally I found it an inspiring and refreshing read, with a good balance between Bible content and contemporary examples, and I'd recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Exiles is an excellent and challenging look at the current state of the church. Specifically it addresses the alienation many believers feel when confronted with the mega brand churches that now represent success. Forst's critque of modern worship songs is equally as provoking. But this is not just a book to rubbish things and moan - the challenge is to engage both Jesus and modern society creatively and scope a Christian lifestyle for the 21st Century, rather than create an psuedo-society where one can hide from the realities and temptations of post-Christendom.

This is an amazing book. Exiles puts into words so many of the thoughts I've had and especially struggles I had in marrying the forms of church I've seen and the Jesus I read of in the gospels. I will read this book again very soon, which is a rarity unless the book is short and particularly good. Read and be inspired, it gives voice to the reasons why I changed my job, home and lifestyle in order to hopefully follow Jesus a little better each day.
