In our quest to renew the church, Christians have walked through seeker-friendly, emergent, missional, and other movements to develop new expressions of the body of Christ. Now in the post-Christian world in North America we're asking the question again: Is there a way to be the church that engages the world, not by judgment nor accommodation but by becoming the good news in our culture?
In Faithful Presence, noted pastor and scholar David Fitch forwards a renewed vision for the witness of the church in the world—to be a community restored to God's presence in Jesus Christ and faithfully present to him in the world. In the wake of the loss of the intent and practice of the sacramental ways of the historic church, Fitch calls for a recovery of seven disciplines that have been with us since the birth of the church. Such Christ-given disciplines, Fitch contends, shape communities of faithful presence, giving witness to the kingdom breaking in and inviting the world to join in. Through numerous examples and stories, he demonstrates how these revolutionary disciplines can help the church take shape in and among our neighborhoods, transform our way of life in the world, and advance the kingdom.
This book not only helps you re-envision church—what you do in the name of church and the way you lead—but also recover a future church that carries us beyond Christendom. Embrace the call to reimagine the church as the living embodiment of Christ, dwelling in and reflecting God's faithful presence to a world that desperately needs more of it.
