Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Embracing an evolutionary approach to change Drawing on the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Christ, as well as urban theory, art, and social practice, Kester Brewin calls the church to dispense with tired structures and re-emerge as a networked, bottom-up organism that is responsive to the needs of our changing world. "A dynamic and hope-filled book to provoke the ecclesial imagination. May it help us grow closer to God's dream for the church."--Shane Claiborne, activist, author, The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical "With a concise yet pastoral message, Brewin guides the reader through a dynamic understanding of this major movement. This book has the potential to blow the emerging church conversation wide open."--Will Samson, coauthor, Justice in the Burbs: Being the Hands of Jesus Wherever You Live "Signs of Emergence is a rich and luminous meditation on the nature of change, which is grounded in a deep understanding of the Christian narrative and a keen insight into the structure of organic development."--Peter Rollins, author, How (Not) to Speak of God; founder, Ikon community "Kester Brewin has fertilized the Western church's dulled imagination with this fine work."--Alan Hirsch, author, The Forgotten Ways: Reactivating the Missional Church; founding director, Forge Mission Training Network "I predict this book will stimulate a very important conversation regarding the future of the church in the West."--Tom Sine, Mustard Seed Associates Kester Brewin is a writer and pioneering church planter based in London, England. In emerging church circles, he is best known for working with a collective of artists and city lovers to create the experimental, alternative worship group Vaux. Brewin has worked in an advisory role at Fuller Theological Seminary, helping them to think about new ways of training emerging leaders.

Format: Paperback
SIGNS OF EMERGENCE is a pick for serious ministry and spirituality holdings, covering the basic of how to organize a church of believers and how to make it a decentralized body with more flexibility than the usual church structure. Chapters survey the idea of an 'emergent church' which may be better suited to meet the needs of worshippers. Chapters offer important guidelines and specifics on achieving such an institution.

Format: Paperback
"Through Kester Brewin's eyes, pilgrims can see cities as the place where one's dreamy theologies and `psycho-spiritual bull' confronts the Concrete Christ. A highly recommended faith journey for those who dare to walk the walk and follow the trouble-making Jesus."

Format: Paperback
The chapter on what the emerging church looks like alone is worth buying this book. The rest helps flesh out the the character of emerging churches they're a bit more nebulous than chapter 4. Nevertheless there are some great things in this book worth discovering.
