How Megatrends are reshaping Christian Communities
by Eddie Gibbs
Publisher:Baker Academic imprint of Baker Publishing from SPCK
Eddie Gibbs is well placed to look at the 'megatrends' in mission and church life and writes a classic about how major trends are reshaping our churches. Academic but straightforward to read, illustrated with stories from around the world, and recognisable in our English context he looks at such topics as post-Christian churches, Fresh Expressions, the megachurch in America, urban engagement and resurgent monasticism. Granted he is a research observer, but this is a valuable piece of work for those interested in mission and evangelism. I was surprised to read, for example, that 25% of people surveyed in a megachurch felt spiritually 'stalled' or 'dissatisfied and considered leaving p96. This study gets under the surface and offers insight and information for missiologists and church leaders alike.
