Overview

Praise for P F

"The Present Future by Reggie McNeal is one of the most thought-provoking and ministry-stimulating books I have read in the past year. Subtitled Six Tough Questions for the Church, McNeal paints a vivid picture of the need for and emergence of missional congregations and apostolic leaders for the twenty-first century. His critique of the decline and baggage of the modern church is right on target and is very useful to pastors and leaders who are struggling with the idea that just doing the same thing better and harder will create a better ministry outcome."

"Christian leaders will find great questions being answered in this compelling and motivating work that unwraps what McNeal calls 'the realities of the present future' in the church today."
— Kelvin Gardiner, district superintendent, Christian and Missionary Alliance.

"This book is a rare find in which McNeal lovingly challenges the church with a spirit of adventure and rediscovery."
—The Rt. Rev. Charles Jenkins, Bishop, The Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana
