A different kind of church

In Eric Swanson and Sam Williams' book To Transform a City they tell about some guy from somewhere - and they were talking about the difference between conversion and transformation - and he's talking about how we tend to emphasize personal conversion too much, rather than the transformation of communities/cities/societies. And this guy says (p. 67)...

Yep.
