Two Elephants in the Room – new book by John Bodycomb

2018 September 1
by maureen

With familiar candour and colour, John Bodycomb excoriates church leadership for evading, and layering over with platitudes, two huge questions:

• What future for organised religion in Western societies? and (in light of this)
• What future for the so-called ‘religious professional’?

More information: New Release 2 elephants1

“John Bodycomb, Uniting Church minister, theological educator and sociologist, confronts us with research findings which herald a bleak future for the Christian churches in a secular society like Australia. Further he raises the question of the implications of this for the future of the ordained ministry, and thus for anyone currently contemplating training for that ministry.”
