Paperback
Renewing the Center is an important foundational book for the emerging church. The second edition includes a new foreword by Brian McLaren and a new afterword from John Franke updating the book for the contemporary church scene.Praise for the first edition: "Grenz has written a lively and engaging work that should help American evangelicals chart the challenging course of their theological future. He offers a balanced, carefully-argued, and lucid prescription for the way ahead. Accordingly, I highly recommend this book and hope that it receives the wide reading that it so richly deserves."--Kenneth J. Collins, author of The Evangelical Moment

- Publisher Recommended for public and academic libraries.--Eugene O. Bowser, Library Journal"A useful introduction, also for Catholics, to the current state of evangelical Protestant theology."--First Things"Informed and irenic, it is accessible to those who want to trace evangelicalism's ancestry. And it is a stimulating exploration of where evangelical theologians may be heading in this 'glorious time to engage in the crucial task of theology.'"--Robert P. Mills, Presbyterian Layman"Stanley Grenz has become, if he was not before, the leading academic theologian of the North American evangelical coalition with this book and its companion, Beyond Foundationalism: Shaping Theology in a Postmodern Context, written with John R. Franke. Among evangelicals one can count numerous scholars of wide learning but only a handful with original ideas. Grenz is one of the few who combine depth of scholarship with genuine originality. He is someone to take account of. Certainly Renewing the Center marks a milestone in Grenz's work and may, if found plausible, constitute a landmark in evangelical reflection."--Theology Today"Grenz's provocative evangelical perspective is not only a stimulating discussion of the future of evangelical theology but also a strong statement of the importance of the church. . . . The spirit of the book is ecumenical, but its center is the gospel of Jesus Christ."--Wm. David Kirkpatrick, Southwestern Journal of Theology"At a fairly young age, Stanley Grenz has already become one of the most articulate, productive, and influential voices in the North American evangelical scene. . . . As in his other works, Grenz demonstrates an extraordinary command of the literature. He enters intoconversation with scholars representing a wide range of perspectives. The book is excellent for those who want to consider a softer approach to the challenges offered by postmodernism."--Duane Warden, Restoration Quarterly
