Christians are to be in the world, not of the world. But worldly self-interest has crept into the church. The ultimate goals of filling empty pews, constructing bigger buildings, and ultimately gaining greater glory for the church itself are disguised by seemingly altruistic strategies like 'church planting' and 'marketing the Gospel.' Wesleyan Leadership in Troubled Times calls the church to be holy and whole in motive, mission, and ministry. McKenna challenges the church to confront our self-interested culture with the self-sacrificing love of Jesus Christ.
