Brand New Church? aims to make sense of what ‘postmodern’ actually looks and feels like in real life, and to ask what this means for the church. The book builds on my doctoral research and time as ESU American Memorial Chapel Scholar, when I met with to a wide range of church leaders, in the UK and USA.
My concern is not simply with ’emerging church’, which is both loved and loathed, but with a broader understanding of how – in these postmodern times – the church might engage fruitfully in dialogue and mission for the sake of all God’s people.
The book includes interviews with British and American church leaders; and engages with writers and theologians including D. A. Carson, Peter Rollins, Pete Ward, Tom Wright and Stanley Hauerwas.
