Does the Bible prescribe a standard way of doing church, or is there freedom within certain guidelines? Offering a "cautious apologetic" for various contemporary models, Malphurs suggests that there is room for innovative ways to carry out ministry while remaining true to Scripture. His theological and interpretive insights and practical suggestions will help your congregation implement change. 192 pages, softcover from Baker.

Publisher's Description

There is no shortage of books these days on new ways of "doing church." New church models have been both warmly embraced and roundly criticized. What are church leaders and others concerned about the state of the church to make of all this? Does the Bible prescribe a standard model for doing church? Or is there freedom within certain guidelines?
In A New Kind of Church, respected church consultant Aubrey Malphurs addresses these important questions and suggests that there is room for new ways of doing ministry while being true to Scripture. In the process, he offers a theological and interpretive framework for evaluating any church model, new or old. He also offers suggestions for implementing change in the local church.

Aubrey Malphurs (Ph.D., Dallas Theological Seminary) is professor of pastoral ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary and president of The Malphurs Group.

    David R. Bess
    Overall I am disappointed with this book. In the first chapter Malphurs with broad strokes began painting a picture of the local church changing radically with the 21st century. He had my attention, with me hoping for some kind of new insight into how to address those changes. Instead, by chapter 3 he fell into a comparison of newer model churches such as Saddleback or Willow Creek to traditional model congregations. Throughout most of this volume, the author summarizes what has been said by other church growth authors, or what he has said in his other books. The best chapters of this book are chapters 1, 2 and 7. Chapter 1 identifies the changing church, and chapter 2 gives insight into why churches are changing. Chapter 7 addresses the vital nature of the local church, and what it is and isn't. With all the emphasis today on small Bible study groups and para-church movements, the authors’ thoughts here are worth the price of the book.This title is worth the money due to presence of the three chapters mentioned. It isn't worth the time to read it in its entirety, especially if you have read other works by Malphurs.
