"As Western Christianity moves towards a religious realignment of epic proportions - where does your congregation stand? How will you navigate these changes?" Paradigms that have guided the Church for centuries are crumbling. The old dichotomy between "conservatives" and "liberals" - that has defined us for centuries - is becoming almost irrelevant.

We must answer three basic questions:

Book description

As Western Christianity moves towards a religious realignment of epic proportions – where does your congregation stand? How will you navigate these changes?

Paradigms that have guided the Church for centuries are crumbling. The old dichotomy between “conservatives” and “liberals” – that has defined us for centuries – is becoming almost irrelevant. What are our true differences today? Where and how will we come together as a Christian people for the future? Paradoxy is a book for those who would lead churches in challenging times. We must answer three basic questions:

  • Where are we now?
  • How did we get here?
  • Where do we go from here?
