The Search for Community

In chapter seven, “The Search for Community,” Neuhaus describes the Church as a distinctive community. In his discussion, though, the idea of the Church always appearing the same in different times and locations is discarded. Though there are similarities which cross cultural bounds, there are also very different individual characters to the local church. Neuhaus warns that when we look for one perfect view of the Christian community we will always be disappointed. Rather, he suggests, we should seek the identity we naturally find in our time and place.
