Overview

Churches everywhere are experiencing change. In his thought-provoking book, Professor Robin Gill identifies the main challenges facing the church and reflects on how Christians should respond.He first studies the immense moral challenges of our rapidly changing world: religion and the environment, the arms trade (including reflection on the global situation since the attack on New York on 11 September 2001), media ethics and the Lambeth Conference, and sexual ethics.The second part focuses on the changing patterns of churchgoing and addresses anxieties about churchgoing decline in the West, which run parallel with claims about rapid church growth elsewhere. The third part looks at changes in theological education.The author argues for greater honesty in the church and for a judicious use of both theology and sociology which would equip Christians to face the enormous challenges of our world today.
