The Dishonest Church
The Dishonest Church is an unblinking look at the reasons behind the decline of the mainline churches, and a prescription for a long overdue remedy: honesty! It is also a celebration of a faith tradition that continues to evolve as it confronts the Ultimate Mystery. The book insists that the only way to preserve this tradition is to allow it to do what it has always done: adjust to new realities. Readers of this book will be affirmed in their desire to stand at the intersection of a dynamic tradition and an open future.
This book is designed to help Christians define a problem that has not yet been properly discussed in print: the divide between an academic and a popular style of faith. Both the individual Christian and the church as an institution can benefit from an honest look at this dishonest situation.
