- Publisher Many recent books have attempted to address the "crisis" in the mainline church. Anthony Robinson here makes a significant -- and in manyways unique -- contribution to this discussion by bringing his personalinsights as a pastor to bear on the issue of renewing congregational life.^Writing from twenty-five years of experience in four congregationsof differing size, location, and ethnic makeup, Robinson prescribesconcrete changes in the practice of ministry that have been tried, tested, and lived out to great success. At the heart of his framework for churchrenewal is what he calls "cultural change." According to Robinson, technical or programmatic change is not sufficient to address the needsof the day. He argues for changing the very "culture of mainline congregations, which involves recognizing and fostering their particular giftsand genius rather than trying to remake them into something they arenot. His fruitful strategies for renewal touch every aspect of congregational life, from personalspiritual formation to church leadership.
