Click to order The Church After ChristendomThe second book in the ‘After Christendom’ series (a series written by various members of the Anabaptist Network) has now been published by Paternoster. It costs only £8.99.

The Paternoster website introduces Church After Christendom as follows:

“How will the western church negotiate the demise of Christendom? Can it rediscover its primary calling, recover its authentic ethos and regain its nerve? If churches are to thrive – or even survive – disturbing questions need to be confronted and answered. In conversation with Christians who have left the church and with those who are experimenting with fresh expressions of doing church, Stuart Murray explores both the emerging and inherited church scenes and makes proposals for the development of an ecclesiology suitable for a post-denominational, post-commitment and post- Christendom era. With chapters on mission, community and worship, this comprehensive and accessible book offers a vision of a way of being church that is healthy, sustainable, liberating, peaceful and missional.”

You can read the first chapter of this book in the 'Articles' section of this website.

The Lost Message of Jesus

Update: You can now read our Report on the Lost Message of Jesus Debate as well as Stuart Murray Williams statement from the evening or share your own vies in the Lost Message of Jesus Debate discussion forum.

We are pleased to announce a public debate sponsored by the Evangelical Alliance to explore the issues raised in The Lost Message of Jesus, a new book by Baptist minister Steve Chalke, which suggests his thinking is becoming increasingly ‘Anabaptist’. His book invites readers to take Jesus seriously and questions interpretations of the life and death of Jesus that imply God condones the use of violence for redemptive purposes.
