Item description for The Local Church in a Global Era: Reflections for a New Century by Max L. Stackhouse, Tim Dearborn & Dr Scott R. Paeth...
Overview This important volume explores the implications of the emerging global society for the local church and its mission. Written by prominent scholars and missionaries, "The Local Church in a Global Era" examines the relation of Christian theology and ethics to global changes in the family, economics, technology, education, the media and other key spheres of life.
Publishers Description How is the church being affected by globalization? What does wider and more direct contact between the world religions mean for Christians? What is God doing in the midst of such change? This important volume explores the implications of today's emerging global society for local churches and Christian mission. Prominent scholars, missionaries, and analysts of world trends relate Christian theology and ethics to five clusters of issues-stewardship, prosperity, and justice; faith, learning, and family; the Spirit, wholeness, and health; Christ, the church, and other religions; and conflict, violence, and mission-issues that pastors and congregations will find critical as they think through the mission of the church in our time.
