The Church in Emerging Culture
What should the church look like today? What should be the focus of its message? How should I present the message?
We live in as pivotal and defining an age as the Great Depression or the Sixties-a period whose definition, say some cultural observers, includes a warning of the church's influence.
The result? A society measurably less religious but decidedly more spiritual. Less influenced by authority than by experience. More attuned to images than to words.
How does the church adapt to such a culture? Or should it, in fact, eschew adapting for maintaining a course it has followed these last two millennia? Or something in between?
These are exactly the questions asked in The Church In Emerging Culture by five Christian thinker-speaker-writers, each who advocate unique stances regarding what the church's message should be.
