The world has more than changed. In fact the world as it was known for generations is ending, and from its ashes a new world is rushing in. All sociologist, futurists, theologians, and academicians agree. But the shape of this post-modern world is still being formed. The clay of the post-seeker generation is still soft, yet to be completely hardened by cynicism. Communities of believers who are especially equipped are being birthed across the nation and world. Church leaders, having seen the decline of the seeker generation, are embracing the future and are planting the seeds for the future church. Jim. L. Wilson, himself on the frontline of this new generation of church leaders, discusses this new movement and profiles the leaders whose visions are leading them to throw off the chains of conventional modernity to once again become all things to all men to save some. Future churches neither criticize culture nor adapt to it. Future churches leverage culture to the gospel's advantage. This book offers seven critical fulcrum points the church must locate in order to remain relevant in the post-modern, post-seeker, post Christian age.

Jim does a great job with 'comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable' with this book. If your called to ministry (not just full time) this book will challenge you with your evangelism, your discipleship, your missional posture toward the culture and the 'church'. Excellent book and passionate!
