The Bold Alternative: Staying in Church in the 21st Century, by Gary W. Charles. (Louisville: Geneva Press, 2001.) Gary Charles studies individuals in mainline churches to determine what’s behind their decision to stay and serve in an environment where membership in mainline churches has been in decline.
Jack W. Stewart, Ralph B. and Helen S. Ashenfelter Associate Professor of Ministry and Evangelism
The Church in the Power of the Spirit, by Jürgen Moltmann. (New York: Harper & Row, 1977.) Most academic observers of the contemporary church point to a deepening ambiguity about the nature and mission of the church. In a mountain range of works on ecclesiology, Moltmann’s book remains larger and more distinguished than the rest.
