The core narrative of Christianity, the book that conveys it (the Bible) and the institution of the church have been marginalised by the development of modernity and post-modernity. Strangely, post-modernity created an opportunity for religious thinking and experience to re-enter many lives.
Yet post-modernity is not an adequate framework for thinking about life. There is therefore an opportunity for Christians to imagine what comes after and to prepare the church for a new engagement of mission with western culture.


The church, through a creative missionary imagination, can re-define western cultural life. This sketches what such an approach might look like.


'if you have a taste for the subversive, a passion for the church, a heart for biblical engagement, and an eye on the future; this book is a must-read.'
Roy Searle, Northumbria Community, former President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain.

The church after postmodernity. The core narrative of Christianity, the book that conveys it (the Bible) and the institution of the church have been marginalized by the development of modernity and post-modernity. Strangely, post-modernity created an opportunity for religious thinking and experience to re-enter many lives. Yet post-modernity is not an adequate framework for thinking about life. There is therefore an opportunity for Christians to imagine what comes after and to prepare the church for a new engagement of mission with western culture. The church, through a creative missionary imagination, can re-define western cultural life. With a boldly crafted vision this book sketches precisely that.
