Perplexed leaders need to distinquish between the treasure of their tradition and the baggage they carry along with it.  Loyalty to tradition does not consist in living in the past but in learning from the past and in reinterpreting the tradition in light of a changing social context. p. 73

Our world is changing.  The changes are influencing the church – of all types and styles.  Gibbs presents with clarity the trends we are facing and describes the responses various elements within the church at large are making. 

An important publication for church leaders wrestling with decisions for future ministry. Goes beyond the anecdotal and personal hunches presenting innovative examples to spark imagination and gobbs of references for further research.
