Item Description...
With the recognition of the sweeping changes now taking place in North American society comes the realization that Protestant mainline churches no longer enjoy the privileged status they once did. In this forward-looking contribution to pastoral theology, three leading ministers discuss the state of church life today, explore the particular opportunities that our new world offers the church, and provide a clear picture of what a new, "postliberal" church can look like in practice.

Speaking directly to pastors and church leaders who find the liberal/conservative polarity tired and unhelpful, the authors interact with the theoretical work of George Lindbeck, Stanley Hauerwas, and others as they trace strategies for a new way to do church. The three authors also provide autobiographical sketches that tell how their years of diverse church experiences have led to their new perspectives.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good primer to the changing landscape of the mainline   Feb 8, 2007
This book is a meditation by three well known pastors in mainline circles who actually find a hopeful opportunity in liberal christianity's move away from the center of American life to the margins. The make a compelling case that the church was shackled by being the establishment and that now it is no longer as prominent it is actually free to be the church rather than just an instituition within society.
compelling overview of the emerging "post-liberal church."  Mar 7, 1999
The authors - two pastors and a college chaplain - write from personal experience of the new "post-liberal" perspective emerging within the Protestant mainline churches. Thoughtful and readable, the book is particularly suited to the lay person who has felt that the church should be more than a well-intentioned institution dedicated to "making the world a little nicer," but has not been able to identify where the problem lay, or what the solution might be.
