Publisher's Description

The Missional Church and Denominations utilizes the missional church conversation as a lens for engaging an important dimension of church life in the United States -- denominations and denominationalism.

Denominations have been studied from a wide variety of perspectives, including historical, sociological, and theological, but they have yet to be engaged in light of a missional church understanding. Here each essay helps to bring further clarity to the word "missional" and contributes to the ever-widening conversation.

Editorial Reviews

George R. Hunsberger
— Coordinator of the Gospel and Our Culture Network

"Here is the serious theological engagement with denominationalism that Lesslie Newbigin called for more than two decades ago! Finally! While the authors acknowledge this is only a start, it is a very serious and important start. They provide a unique (and necessary) blend of sound social analysis, theological grip, and contextually particular engagement. In the process, they demonstrate the vigor and power of a missional theological imagination for faithful and fruitful change."
