Product description

The Emerging Church movement is a key part of the current landscape of Christianity. The term 'emerging church' is not without its critics.

It is used both by those who participate in new worship communities such as those represented at Greenbelt and by those who are suspicious of the claim that the emerging church presents something radically new.

Doug Gay attempts to look beyond such polarization and to articulate a hermeneutical process of audit, retrieval, unbundling and remixing of key elements of traditional Christian practice. Remixing the Church has the potential to become a standard work on contemporary ecclesiology.

Product Reviews

‘In Remixing the Church, Doug Gay has pulled off a rare combination of solid scholarship, personal experience, and theological heft all while actually making a whole lot of sense! I am so grateful for this book. It is like sitting down with a long lost relative who can finally tell the story of who your family is, why they seems so weird and why that's all so beautiful. I'll be recommending this book for a very long time. I simply have not read anything else that reads the ecclesial, theological and cultural landscape with such accuracy, honest and respect.’-- Nadia Bolz-Weber, House for All Sinners and Saints, Denver

‘I was very moved by this book. It's a creative mature piece of practical theology that maps the contours of the emerging church movement over the last few decades and offers reflections on ecclesial practice into the future. Doug's passion for a generous and humble ecumenism is inspired and much needed. I am so thankful he has written it and so identify with the sensibilities and themes.’--Jonny Baker, Pioneer Mission Leadership Team, CMS

'We owe Douglas Gay a debt of thanks. Through this book he has made it possible to continue a conversation about the emerging shape of the church, and more precisely 'the emerging church conversation', - with theological depth and breadth, with awareness of the broad range of movements, cultural changes and thinkers, who have influenced it, with courtesy and humility, and without reference to the vitriolic blog wars which bedevil many attempts at a similar conversation in North America. This is a gift from Scotland about the catholicity of the church.' --Bishop Graham Cray, Archbishops' Missioner and leader of the Fresh Expressions Team
