Flexible Church: Being the Church in the Contemporary World

Sale price$36.00


Culture has changed and the church has not changed adequately in response. That is the claim made by proponents of new expressions of church. But all too often their ecclesiology is far from adequate.
In Flexible Church, Helen D. Morris speaks to this issue by proposing an ecclesiology for innovative expressions of church that is grounded in biblical texts whilst self-consciously and intentionally developed for the contemporary Western milieu.
Engaging with the work of key church thinkers such as Michael Moynagh and Pete Ward, as well as critical New Testament scholarship, Morris introduces a framework for church that facilitates both flexibility and faithfulness; faithfulness to the church's Christian heritage and identity, and the flexibility to fashion new forms of church that can connect more effectively with those who currently find church irrelevant and inaccessible.
