Editorial Reviews

Review

"Engagingly and accessibly written, this excellent book deserves wide readership among everyone interested in US religion, ethnicity, organizations and urban culture." —Choice

(Choice)

"Marti's insightful reflections on these issues at Mosaic will help observers of other groups as well." —Nova Religio

(Nova Religio)

"A very thoughtful, unique contribution [that] edges us forward in our understanding of the interethnic religious experience [that] will stimulate researchers... to forge ahead in their quest to understand this important social phenomenon." —Review of Religious Research

(Review of Religious Research)

"Gerardo Marti... argues that racial and ethinic identities are fluid and negotiated and that interracial churches can successfully create a model of 'ethnic transcendence' in which a common identity as Christian transcends specific racial or ethnic identities." —Peter W Marty, Senior Pastor, St Paul Lutheran Church, Davenport Iowa, host of the radio program "Grace Matters", Christian Century, 1/13/09

By W. Dahl on May 23, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book is an artform. The work is an in-depth glimpse of the inner-workings of the emerging church that many philosophize and prophesize about, yet never have the opportunity to live within. The care and balance that Marti brought to the project as a pastor and scholar was obvious and reassuring. I am confident that Gerardo's work will provide a methodological basis that provides others with the courage to do the same. This book is timely as the denominational form of Christianity continues to slide into oblivion in the U.S. However, it is a refreshing testament to the fact that God has something more in mind. He's not done with Christianity in the U.S. just yet. He is the God of MORE...much more. Marti's book is a refreshing, uplifting testament to the fact that He is alive and working diligently in our world...He just needs some disciples to hear Him and "Follow Me." Clearly, the finished work spawns more questions and opportunities for additional research, as any substantial research endeavor should.

This book does a masterful job of piecing apart Mosaic, how it is structured and how it operates. It provides facts and unique insights behind the scenes and gives the reader what he needs to understand diversity in a local church that is impacting the world.
