Claiming New Life: Process-Church for the Future invites those who care deeply about the church to move into an intentional process of co-creating the future church with God. This book explores process theology as the basis for creating an intentional process ecclesiology, or the Process-Church. To set the stage for transitioning from institutional church to Process-Church, Claiming New Life surveys social contexts in which we find ourselves. Living in a post-Christendom, postmodern, globalizing world yields challenges for the church that it has not been ready to face. This book initiates Process-Church both in theory and in practice, providing rationale for change, practical steps to make the transition and case studies to illustrate the blessings of transformation as a result. Process-Church calls forth the future, inviting persons to wholeness and love in the name of God.
