Item description for Wesleyan Leadership in Troubled Times: Confronting the Culture, Challenging the Church by David L. McKenna...

What if we are living in the midst of the "Fourth Great Awakening" in American history? * How would Wesleyan leaders view their task in this paradigm? * How is Christian leadership in the midst of spiritual awakening different from leadership calling for spiritual awakening? * What will Wesleyan leaders have contributed when the history of the reforms of the Fourth Great Awakening is written? McKenna explores the distinctive challenges and opportunities of Wesleyan leaders in shaping the spiritual landscape of a church-and a culture-in the early years of the new century.

Publishers Description
Christians are to be in the world, not of the world. But worldly self-interest has crept into the church. The ultimate goals of filling empty pews, constructing bigger buildings, and ultimately gaining greater glory for the church itself are disguised by seemingly altruistic strategies like 'church planting' and 'marketing the Gospel.' Wesleyan Leadership in Troubled Times calls the church to be holy and whole in motive, mission, and ministry. McKenna challenges the church to confront our self-interested culture with the self-sacrificing love of Jesus Christ.
