Editorial Reviews

William H. Willimon
— Bishop of the United Methodist Church, North Alabama Conference
"For some time now Tony Robinson has been changing what we mainline Protestants talk about. In this book Tony furthers the conversation with clear, wise insights into how we can be a changed church. He enables us not only to change our talk but also to change our walk."
 
Ken McFayden
— Union Theological Seminary–PSCE
"Changing the Conversation provides stimulating perspectives for church leaders working to renew and revitalize their congregations in a rapidly changing world. Tony Robinson has his finger on the pulse of the church and culture, is keenly aware of opportunities and challenges facing leaders in the midst of change, and develops his work on strong foundations within the Christian tradition and leadership theory. This text is a must-read for pastors, seminarians, lay leaders, and others who wish to participate in conversations for congregational renewal."
 
Martin Copenhaver
— Wellesley Congregational Church, Massachusetts
"Tony Robinson has done it again. Building on his previous work, which many of us have found indispensable, he has written a book full of insight and wisdom. No one writing about church life today writes with more depth and perception. Robinson helps us understand what we are seeing in the current religious landscape and how we might respond faithfully. This is so much more than a "how to book. It is more useful than that."
 
Louis Weeks
— President Emeritus, Union Theological Seminary–PSCE
"Tony Robinson's Changing the Conversation offers real help for pastors and other leaders of local congregations. A fine book, it will provoke discussion and, by God's grace, new zeal for the gospel. Perfect for seminarians who anticipate pastorates and for seminary continuing education events."
 
Verlee A. Copeland
— Union Church of Hinsdale, Illinois 
"Changing the Conversation provokes church leaders, clergy, and judicatories to engage in courageous work. With clarity and insight Robinson urges those who care about the church to discover a third way to vibrant faith and practice that transcends old polarities. Continuing the groundbreaking work begun in Transforming Congregational Culture, Robinson outlines ten essential conversations that can transform, deepen, and sustain the life of every congregation seeking a new heart."
