Item Description...
Taking us within the walls of the collapsing church, we follow the author on the journey of transition that the people of God need to take. Thwaites aligns Christ's own death and resurrection with the death and the life of the 21st century church. Packed with timely reminders and exhortations, this will be a welcome book for church leaders and those in authority who seek a new vision for the church in the third millennium.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
New models for church beyond buildings, programmes and meetings.  Apr 1, 2010
James Thwaites, Renegotiating the Church Contract: The Death and Life of the 21st Century Church (Milton Keynes: Authentic Media, 2002)

Church systems work against the purpose of church when people get so busy with buildings, programmes and meetings. Building on his previous book The Church Beyond the Congregation (Carlisle: Paternoster, 1999), Thwaites says we need a new church contract that empowers people (and give them permission) to impact every sphere of creation. Prone to overexaggerate to make his point, it is still worth hearing his prophetic warning that too many `church activities' can drain God's people of their ability of be effective witnesses. He urges churches to be prepared to leave behind their ecclesiastical merry-go-round and embrace incarnational living. This refocusing will necessarily mean removing the normal centre of church life, spending more time outside the church walls, and being content with fewer church programmes and departmental structures. Thwaites has led a church through this sort of process and shares the grief and freedom involved.
