19 Page 21 Language Matters Indeed, given such blatantly political language as "exodus" and "kingdom," it can be difficult to comprehend how we have managed to so thoroughly privatize the New Testament faith. Of no less political provenance than "kingdom" is the term gospel, or evangel. In the Greco-Roman world from which the early church adopted it, "gospel'' was a public proclamation of, say, a war won, borne by a herald who ran back to the city and, with his welcome political news, occasioned public celebration.

Unlike liberal critics, Brimlow is persuaded by Hauerwas' emphasis on the particularity of Christian discourse and the church. In fact, Brimlow invites Hauerwas to be more, not less, sectarian. " Considering the implications for Christian witness and practice, it may be worthwhile to reappropriate some of the negative labelsBrimlow even defends the value of a "Christian ghetto"and recast them as positive manifestations of the faith. Church practices are also central to the concerns of Michael Warren, who asks what significance Christian congregations have had in relation to the "social and cultural horrors" of the twentieth century.

Yet inasmuch as we read these connotations onto the word in its New Testament context we are saying something oxymoronic like the "private public word" of the church.
