Summary In The Spirit Shaped Church, Swarup Bar argues that the church is defined by its relationship with others. A relational church depends on porous borders, which means that, while a church has its distinctiveness, it ought to be open to negotiate relational engagements with the world around it. This sort of relationally distinct, permeable church is found to be possible through the leading of the Spirit and the work of Christ
