Following Jesus to Burning Man: Recovering the Church's Vocation places the author, a Pentecostal/evangelical minister, in a thoroughly pagan context in the Nevada desert where he discovered the presence of God in a way that transformed his understanding of ministry in the twenty-first century context. This book is about our culture's recovery and transformation by means of the church's Spirit-empowered application of Kingdom politics. More specifically, this book is an exhortation for the church in North America to be E-P-I-C: by (1) discovering and Experiencing the presence of Jesus Christ in every corner of the postmodern culture; (2) by Participating in missional ministry with him, wherever he is present; (3) by reading the cultural Images, signs and symbols and effectively incarnating the gospel, especially in the culture's most hurting places; and (4) by practicing the politics of re-form, re-connection, and re-creation, a Spirit empowered, covenant Community can transform our culture.
