Publisher's Description

The Hybrid Church in the City focuses on the importance of urban space as a way of reinterpreting the mission and identity of the church for the twenty-first century. Christopher Baker uses the idea of the Third Space (a concept widely used in post-colonial and cultural studies) to offer a way of understanding the new form of the city - namely the diversity of the hybrid, post-colonial and postmodern urban space.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

'Christopher Baker offers a refreshing and authoritative look at the opportunities and challenges facing the urban church. This book is a great blend of cultural analysis, local voices and theological reflection. It marks a new wave of thinking about what it means to live as people of faith amidst the complexities of the contemporary city'.
‘In this fascinating and prescient study, Christopher Baker argues for a new kind of engagement and connectedness for theology and the churches. By focussing attention on space, urbanisation and marginalisation, new possibilities for practical theology are opened up that invite a fundamental reconsideration of the churches and their location within post-modern society. This book is essential reading for all those who want to understand the Christianity and culture debate in more depth, and tackle it with imagination, flair and thought'.
'The Hybrid Church in the City is a relatively slim book. It packs a lot into its covers and names an agenda that needs to be named for those who want a public theology to engage with the complexities of rapidly changing cities.'
