eBookThe McDonaldization of the Church eBook • $8.99
"A theology which comes pre-packaged, and in which there are no loose ends, is not true to life nor can it adequately reflect the richness of the Gospel."
Why are churches struggling to maintain credibility in a culture in which there are more spiritual seekers than at any time in living memory? John Drane believes that churches have become stereotyped structures, offering uninventive formulaic worship to a dwindling minority. But there are exciting opportunities for growth, he argues, if only churches will rediscover their own creativity and flexibility. If only they will offer something more nourishing for post-modern spiritual appetites than the equivalent of fast food.
This is a brilliant and scholarly critique of the ways the church functions in contemporary society. It is a well written and easy to understand book that provides a methodology for restructuring the church for effective engagement with the world in the 21st century.
