Book Description

31 Aug 2011 0334043964 978-0334043966 1
The Emerging Church movement is a key part of the current landscape of Christianity.The term 'emerging church' is not without its critics. It is used both by those who participate in new worship communities such as those represented at Greenbelt and by those who are suspicious of the claim that the emerging church presents something radically new. Doug Gay attempts to look beyond such polarization and to articulate a hermeneutical process of audit, retrieval, unbundling and remixing of key elements of traditional Christian practice.Remixing the Church has the potential to become a standard work on contemporary ecclesiology.

Product Description


Remixing The Church makes a unique and original contribution to debates about emerging church, by offering a clear and dynamic model of how church traditions change over time. The metaphor of emergence is read and interpreted through the five key moves of auditing, retrieval, unbundling, supplementing and remixing. Remixing is informed by practical experience of alt/emerging congregations and networks and by recent scholarship in practical theology. Both scholarly and accessible, it is the first book to effectively link discussions of emerging church, ecumenism and evangelicalism. It offers both a lucid framework for analysing the contemporary church and a provocative vision for its future. It is a book for thoughtful practitioners and church leaders, which also contributes to academic discussions of ecclesiology, congregational studies, mission, liturgy and worship and practical theology. --Doug Gay is a Lecturer in Practical Theology at the University of Glasgow and a Church of Scotland minister.

In Remixing the Church Doug Gay has pulled off a rare combination of solid scholarship, personal experience, and theological heft all while actually making a whole lot of sense! I am so grateful for this book. It is like sitting down with a long lost relative who can finally tell the story of who your family is, why they seems so weird and why that's all so beautiful. I'll be recommending this book for a very long time. I simply have not read anything else that reads the ecclesial, theological and cultural landscape with such accuracy, honest and respect. --Nadia Bolz-Weber, House for All Sinners and Saints, Denver

We owe Douglas Gay a debt of thanks. Through this book he has made it possible to continue a conversation about the emerging shape of the church, and more precisely 'the emerging church conversation', - with theological depth and breadth, with awareness of the broad range of movements, cultural changes and thinkers, who have influenced it, with courtesy and humility, and without reference to the vitriolic blog wars which bedevil many attempts at a similar conversation in North America. This is a gift from Scotland about the catholicity of the church --Bishop Graham Cray, Archbishops' Missioner and leader of the Fresh Expressions Team

5.0 out of 5 stars Hopeful Challenge 16 Dec 2011
By Markws
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a challenging book - not in length or concepts, but in the breath of thought that has gone into the 'pragmatics' of the discussion. It is not just concerned with emerging church, but more deeply the dynamic of how to believe together at this time and place. While some parts of the book left me uncomfortable, the abiding feel is of hope. There may be a way through the challenges and struggles that lie ahead. This book offers a way forward both theologically and pragamitically!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ecclesiology 10 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What is happening in the church today? Is there an understanding of 'church' or a negation of it by society and what is the church doing about it. The radical edge has always had something to say. Now it may be time to remix the ingredients.
