Product Description

Emerging and missional church movements are an increasingly global phenomenon; they exist as holistic communities that defy dualistic Western forms of church. Until now, many of the voices from these movements have gone unheard. This volume assembles some of the most innovative church leaders from around the world to share candid insider stories about how God is transforming their communities in an entirely new era for the church.

The Gospel after Christendom continues the themes that Ryan Bolger and Eddie Gibbs established formally in their critically acclaimed Emerging Churches and situates new church movements within this rubric. It explores what is happening today in innovative church movements in continental Europe, Asia, and Latin America and in African American hip-hop cultures. Featuring an international cast of contributors, the book explores the changes occurring both in emerging cultures and in emerging and missional churches across the globe. Professors and students in college and seminary courses covering church and mission, contemporary ecclesiology, congregational studies, emerging churches, and missional churches will value this work.

Publisher's Description

Emerging and missional church movements are an increasingly global phenomenon; they exist as holistic communities that defy dualistic Western forms of church. Until now, many of the voices from these movements have gone unheard. In this volume, Ryan Bolger assembles some of the most innovative church leaders from around the world to share their candid insider stories about how God is transforming their communities in an entirely new era for the church.

Bolger's new book continues the themes that he and Eddie Gibbs established formally in their critically acclaimed Emerging Churches and situates new church movements within this rubric. It explores what's happening now in innovative church movements in continental Europe, Asia, and Latin American and in African American hip-hop cultures.

Featuring an international cast of contributors, the book explores the changes occurring both in emerging cultures and in emerging and missional churches across the globe today.

Endorsements

Here's proof that the emerging missional conversation is transcending the traditional ecclesial and cultural boundaries that so often limit the church's ability to speak to itself and have an impact on the world. Featuring voices from Latin America, New Zealand, Australia, Europe, and North America, The Gospel after Christendom is a compendium of ideas, warnings, inspirations, and suggestions that will move this important conversation forward.
-Michael Frost,
author of The Road to Missional, coauthor of The Shaping of Things to Come, and vice principal, Morling College, Sydney, Australia

Ryan Bolger's The Gospel after Christendom is the broadest and most accessible global survey of emerging missional churches available today. Reading it encouraged my soul. It is filled with good analysis and insights as well as challenges to the imagination. Between its covers lies a glimpse into the future of the church.
-David Fitch,
author of The End of Evangelicalism? Discerning a New Faithfulness for Mission and B. R. Lindner Professor of Evangelical Theology, Northern Seminary

The Gospel after Christendom is a deluge of lived imagination. It is what the 'church planetary' looks, feels, and acts like now that life as we have known it has been utterly swept away.
-Sally Morgenthaler,
author of Worship Evangelism
