After the violent and disruptive occasions that the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity and Freedom in 2013/14, the evangelical flow in post-Soviet society now has an remarkable chance to develop into a shining instance of a "church with out walls." Searle and Cherenkov think of the political, social, cultural, and highbrow legacy of the Soviet Union and provide daring and leading edge proposals on how the church can rediscover its prophetic voice via relinquishing its debilitating dependence at the nation and, in its place, expressing unity with the folk of their valid aspirations for freedom and democracy. though the pessimism and lament expressed on many pages, the authors finish on a good be aware, predicting that the arriving years will witness a flowering of evangelical ecumenism in motion as Christian unity thrives and overflows denominational limitations and parochial interests.

Arguing for the church to have renewed specialise in the project of Jesus, a worldly knowing of the connection of the gospel to tradition, and an educated figuring out of the context offered by way of post-Soviet society, they display why this can be extremely important for social transformation from Kyiv to Moscow. A such a lot well timed word."
