Prepare for Exile offers an engaging and readable overview of the history of the church, focussing particularly on those periods when to be Christian has meant to live at odds with the values of society. Patrick Whitworth suggests that this experience of 'exile' is one which characterises the life of the church today, and should not be feared but rather welcomed as the key to renewal and new growth: ‘exile’, he says, ‘is the church's best friend’. Patrick writes, as ever, with experience and wisdom - this is a realistic and encouraging contribution to the discussion on the challenges facing the church today.
