For many years, articles, surveys, and news reports have lamented the steady flow of young people leaving the church in North America. Yet while some are leaving, others are choosing to remain within the fold of Christianity and explore other expressions of their evangelical faith. They are rediscovering the beauty of a faith that is ever ancient yet ever new.
Ever Ancient, Ever New illuminates the growth of this diverse movement and explores the allure of a liturgy infused with historic Christian practices and rooted in creedal theology, introducing us to several churches and communities that foster this "convergence" of old and new.

For many years now, the church in North America has heard figure after figure concerning the steady flow of young people leaving the church. In the midst of these troubling figures, there remains a glimmer of hope for these youth as they transition into young adults. Ever Ancient, Ever New tells the story of a generation of younger Christians from different backgrounds and traditions who are finding a home and a deep connection in the church by embracing a liturgical expression of the faith.
Author and teacher Winfield Bevins introduces you to a growing movement among younger Christians who are returning to historic, creedal, and liturgical reflections of Christianity. He unpacks why and how liturgy has beckoned them deeper into their experience of Jesus, and what types of churches and communities foster this "convergence" of old and new. Filled with stories illustrating the excitement and joy many young adults have found in these ancient expressions of Christianity, this book introduces you to practices and principles that may help the church as it seeks to engage our postmodern world.
