Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book extremely helpful for understanding the challengers that the church faces today and it has stimulated me to find creative ways to meet these challenges. I found the book to be very balanced and even-handed when examining the church tradtions (albeit with a slight Ana-Baptist leading). I would recommend this book to all pastors/ministers/vicars who want to reach out to their communities with the gospel of Jesus.

Stuart Murray bridges denominational boundaries to analyse and explain contemporary trends in church attendance and practices. There are many new terms, some drawn from the theology literature, others coined here, that help understand these changes. The book is very well referenced with footnotes and a bibliography.

9 of 16 people found the following review helpful By G. J. Weeks on 7 Sept. 2006
Format: Paperback
Murray is an Anabaptist and it shows in his dislike of Christendom and what he calls its residual toxins in the church. He is looking for a prescription for church in the post-modern era. Some of his prescriptions are good. Church must be effective in mission and community and have discipline. Other parts are more questionable. He gives no primacy to preaching and seems totally pragmatic in terms of church government. If you are of a Reformed tradition and believe in Scripture regulating all of life you will not be happy with a book which is short on "Thus saith the Lord".

Transforming churches 9 Jan. 2007
By E. Groen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this book Stuart Murray shows how changes in society from modern to postmodern is walking parallel to changes in christianity, from christendom to postchristendom. He pleads for an emerging church which hold on to a centered set of beliefs and not a boundary set which excludes people. It is an inspiring book for anyone who wants to work in a transforming church because he shows possibilities of a new christianity. It is preferred to read his book postchristendom first. Together with the book emerging churches is this volume profitable for churchbuilders and churchplanters.
