The world has changed, but will the church keep up? This seminal report from the Church of England evaluates the changing religious landscape and introduces exciting new forms of church that speak directly to their diverse mission contexts. The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Council on Mission and Public Affairs collaborated to research and produce the Mission-Shaped Church report in 2004, and Seabury Books is the new North American publisher.
“The Mission-shaped Series is a God-send, literally. Every congregation on both sides of the Atlantic, be they Anglican or Episcopalian, liturgical or evangelical, should delve into these books immediately and thoughtfully and, above all else, prayerfully.” —Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why
“We must learn to sing a new song in this Church, and here, in this book, is the beginning of the new hymnal.” —Gregory H. Rickel, Bishop of the Diocese of Olympia
