Item description for Missionary Congregation, Leadership, & Liminality (Christian Mission and Modern Culture) by Alan J. Roxburgh...

Overview
The urgent question for Christian mission in North America today has to do with churches and congregations and the crisis of their identity in the culture of modernity. According to Alan J. Roxburgh, the church has shifted from the center of culture to the margins. This text examines this shift and explores Victor Turner's work on liminality (a term describing the transition process that accompanies a change of state or social position).

Publishers Description
The urgent question for Christian mission in North America today has to do with churches and congregations and the crisis of their identity in the culture of modernity. Alan Roxburgh argues that the crisis is not merely one of internal identity or structures but involves the massive changes that have transformed modernity, including the shifting of the church from the center of culture to the margins. Chapter 1 reviews the marginalization of the churches and their self-under-standing of that context; chapter 2 examines Victor Turner s work on liminality (a term describing the transition process that accompanies a change of state or social position), relating it to the church s experience of marginalization; chapter 3 outlines leadership characteristics required in today s missionary congregations. Alan J. Roxburgh is Senior Pastor of West Vancouver Baptist Church in British Columbia, an adjunct faculty member of Regent College in Vancouver, and author of the recently published Reaching a New Generation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Missionary Congregation, Leadership, & Liminality (Christian Mission and Modern Culture)?

A Double Challenge  Aug 14, 2000
Alan Roxburgh has written a small book (aprox. 67 pages), but it is the best use of paper and ink I have read in a long time. He sets forth a description of the double challenge facing the modern/postmodern and un-christendomed church, in clear, crisp and stark tones. Using a paradigm of "marginality," Roxburgh explains how that, within the matrix of modernity-modernization, the church was marginalized (pushed from the center) into a chaplain's role, but that with the onset of post-modernity (or hyper-modernity) the church now faces a culture that has been marginalized as well (now there is NO center). He calls this "double-whammy" facing us the experience of "liminality." This book offers a description of depth unlike the "five easy answers to ten difficult problems" approach we are usually given. It is a breath of reality we desperately need, a wake-up call to the complexity of the issues we face. But, by far, the most fruitful aspect to this work is his description of the pastoral leadership that the "missionary congregation" needs before the church will become a new community of faith. If you are a pastor, the images Roxburgh gives us here are deeply thought-provoking and as such they are an extremely helpful motif.
