Becoming More Human

Peter Holmes

Becoming More Human

Peter Holmes

$28.99

Paperback
We are watching the collapse of the traditional Western church. New models are desperately needed to give postmodern people a reason to follow Christ. In Becoming More Human, Peter Holmes presents a theoretical framework for a new type of local congregation----what he refers to as a therapeutic faith community---based on a clinical model that has been running very successfully for a number of years at Christ Church Deal in the UK.

The author outlines a journey of therapeutic discipleship change toward Christ-likeness, using a Biblical pneuma-psychology and therapeutic process developed over 35 years. He explains how "out of the box" thinking can lead to a particularly vibrant community life attractive to the un-churched.
