Paternoster have launched a new series of books, developed in partnership with the Anabaptist Network, on the theme 'After Christendom'. This began in march 2004 with the publication of Post-Christendom: Church and Mission in a Strange New World by Stuart Murray. This book explores what it means to be Christian in a world in which Christianity is no longer the dominant paradigm in our society. You can read an article by Jonathan Bartley on the new book at Ekklesia.
Further books in the series, to be written by members of the Anabaptist Network, will appear at the rate of roughly one each year from 2005. Next in the series is Church After Christendom by Stuart Murray, published in February 2005. After this will be Faith and Politics After Christendom by Jonathan Bartley.
You can pre-order forthcoming books and order Post-Christendom: Church and Mission in a Strange New World from Paternoster. You can also participate in our After Christendom Forum and further discuss what the end of Christendom means for Christians in the UK and around the world.
