Reclaiming the Church

What has happened to the mainline church in the United States, once a bastion of faith, power, and commitment? John Cobb argues that the very term "mainline" is now a misnomer, and that "oldline" more aptly describes this formerly robust body. Should this church opt to survive at the margin? If it attempts to do so, Cobb contends, what has been valuable and relevant for generations will completely disappear.

Decrying the professionalization of theological education, Cobb calls for the church to resume its own the ological vocation so that its members can in turn resume their passionate commitment to their faith.

Honest and provocative, Reclaiming the Church will both disturb and inspire all those who care about the fate of mainline churches.
