Product Description

What has happened to the mainline church, once a bastion of faith, power, and commitment? John Cobb argues that the very term "mainline" is no a misnomer and that "oldline" more aptly describes this formerly robust body. Should this church opt to survive at the margin? If it attempts to do so, Cobb contends, what has been valuable and relevant for generations will disappear. Honest and provocative, this book will both disturb and inspire all those who care about the fate of the mainline church.

Publisher's Description
