1 - 2 weeks availability


Fresh expressions of church may offer a fresh take on ancient Anglican traditions and worship, but what impact are these communities having upon the people who are drawn to them? Journalist and religion commentator Becky Garrison shifts the popular focus from the pioneers who founded emerging congregations to those finding appeal and belonging within them. What draws people to these communities? Why are they coming back, or are they? How do they understand themselves to be "church" or do they? In the process, she reveals wit and wisdom regarding evangelism, Christian formation, and discipleship that every congregation can use to flourish in this post-modern age.
