As midnight approached the first day of the year 2000, optimists and pessimists waited to see if the world would be different in the seconds ahead. But nothing changed...or did it? In Brave New Church the Reverend Richard Kew asks us to step back from all the hoopla and look critically at where the church is at the beginning of this new century, and where it is headed.

Kew is no novice to observing trends today; in previous books he correctly identified many of the religious trends in the 1990s. Now Kew turns his attention to what is emerging in the new century and examines how the increasing globalization, eccelsiastical reconfigurations, fiscal and demographic realities, the internet, and other challenges confront the church. Written in a non-technical and conversational style, each chapter also includes study questions plus suggestions for additional reading and web resources, making this an excellent book for classroom and parish study.

Richard Kew is a priest, future-watcher, and author. He is involved in online theological education, and has spent much of his ministry involved in global mission. He has co-authored several books, including Vision Bearers: Dynamic Evangelism in the 21st Century (1996), Toward 2015: A Church Odyssey (1996), and New Millennium, New Church (1992). He lives in Murfeesboro, Tennessee.Richard Kew
