About this product
- DescriptionIn trying to understand the relationship of the British people to religion - specifically Christianity - we tend to say that people: believe - or do t; attend - or do t. The argument of Lost Church is that the majority of people do t really fit either of these categories. Rather, they 'belong' - in the sense that they feel some affinity to Christianity and the Church; they are t hostile to its ministers; they do t find churches alien places to be, and they turn to the Church and its clergy on specific occasions. But they do t want to attend regularly and their beliefs may be incoherent or even n-existent, and often flicker on and off like a badly wired lamp. This absorbing and encouraging volume is a call to lay Christians and clergy to take stock of what is happening and to recover an understanding of the Church that will t alienate those who 'belong' but rather enable ministry to them to continue.
