The organic church (another synonym for the emergent/emerging church/converstaion) is reaching out, both to the unchurched members of society and to alternate methods of experiencing church. While many use devices and techniques not found in traditional mainline Christian churchs (emphasis on the 'social gospel' and services geared towards unsaved visitors; elements from other faith traditions such as labyrinths and drum circles; replacing the seeking of the lost with attracting them), these congregations are growing both in size and in number. Whitesel gives an overview of twelve such places, both large and small, giving the reader a first-hand account of what goes on in these religious communities.
A new generation of churches is emerging, calling new disciples to the way of Jesus by proclaiming the Good News and seeking the transformation of culture. Bob Whitesel takes us inside congregations that draw upon ancient traditions and modern technologies to create a spiritual community and shows how the practices of the "organic church" can be instructive for all those wishing to reach today's world with the gospel of Christ.
