Excellent critique of the modern UMC

These essays provide an exceptional critique of much that is wrong with the United Methodist Church of today. But, the authors don’t stop with what is amiss in the church. They point the way forward to a vital future for our beloved church. Most of the suggestions in this book make perfect sense. Even though the book was written before many recent developments, it is well worth engaging the ideas in it.

A spotty read, as with any anthology. Some chapters are fantastic. Others not so much. The standouts are the chapters on small groups (very informative), young adults and internet ministry (engaging and thoughtful read). The weakest are the chapters on Preaching (what WAS this guy saying?), Missions, and Ordination (Whine much?).

I am the leading edge of Gen X and found this to be applicable, but only marginally helpful.
