Review

'Alan Billings highlights two challenges that the ordained clergy must embrace if the Christian faith is to survive: allowing themselves to become rooted in parish life, and being educated to argue effectively against modern atheism in its various forms.' --The Rt Hon. Frank Field MP

About the Author

In a clear, readable way, Billings opens up the subject of why people no longer attend church, and suggests ways to turn the situation around. Keeps clear of jargon and is a valuable asset, whether to those considering training or for those already in ministry.

Very well written, and much food for thought.
Let us get off the pedestal and go to the people as Jesus and His disciples did, loving one another.
This was bought as a precursor to ordination training, but would be a beneficial read to anyone who is interested in some history and who cares about the survival of the Church of England.

Thought provoking - could hear Alan's voice coming through. Review of past was useful and interesting. Wondered in the middle if there was anything to be positive about - but by the end there was. Pulls no punches about challenges of modern ministry. Every ordinand should read this.

The most interesting book - I found Alan Billings work having stumbled upon his book 'Lost Church' which I very much enjoyed reading too. He writes with such clarity, wisdom and insight - I love the way he sets out his argument methodically then works through every point thoroughly - An absolutely fascinating book and very readable (I'm no scholar)
