A Fictional Narrative on the Future of the North American Church
Venal Dogmata offers an approachable narrative to give readers a snapshot into the future of the North American church. The author's missiological diagnosis of ten ecclesiastical "glitches" that are keeping the church from thriving in today's post-Christian environment guides the storyline of this book (which are described in his forthcoming North American missiology textbook published by B&H Academic).
Author and missiologist Jeff Christopherson weaves throughout his fast-moving story a corrective prescription which describes the process of creating a gospel movement without the cultural aids of a Christian memory or a society that is warm to evangelicals. The book also includes discussion and coaching questions designed to foster conversations among church leaders and small groups to help create fresh imagination for the future.
"In your hands is an astonishing take on the issues that face the Church--including the church that you are involved in."
