Full Product Description
As someone who has pastored churches in suburbia for the last twenty years, the author is convinced that so much that passes off as Christian faith falls short of the radicalism or primitivism that we see in the pages of scripture: a primitivism that includes honest lament, dogged prayer, raw emotions and heart-felt desire. In a culture in which there is every danger that we all look the same and speak the same, Stackhouse argues for a more gritty kind of faith - one that celebrates the oddity of the gospel, the eccentricity of the saints, and the utter uniqueness of each and every church.
Primitive Piety by Ian Stackhouse was published by Paternoster Press in October 2012 and is our 28473rd best seller. The ISBN for Primitive Piety is 9781842277867.

"If you have ever suffered from the dreadful boredom of suburban spirituality and despaired of an antidote, then suffer no longer ... Stackhouse seeks to empower the reader with antidote - what he describes as 'primitive spirituality'. Dare, then, to detach yourself from the herd and explore a road less-traveled." - Graham McFarlane, Senior Lecturer in Systematic Theology, London of Theology.
"This is not a 'nice' book. Do not read it if you like your life, your church and your God to be 'nice'. But do read it if you want to be stirred, challenged, confronted and inspired to rediscover a gusty, real and authentic spirituality." - Emma Ineson, Tutor in Practical Theology at Trinity College, Bristol, UK
"This book will provoke, simulate, disturb and encourage its reader to constructively critique, reflect and help to engage with an issue that no serious believer can ignore." - Roy Searle, Director, Northumbria Community.
"A wonderfully vigorous book, which challenges the anodyne pieties of modern suburban Christianity. Strong, raw and honest. I am glad that I read it." - Timothy Radcliffe, Blackfriars, Oxford.
