RT @churchscotlandGreat @ChurchTimes review of Very Rev Finlay Macdonald's book From Reform to Renewal @standrewpress https://t.co/vh7DRCXYxC
Author(s): Doug Gay
The Church of Scotland has had a profound social and cultural influence on all aspects of Scottish life for over 450 years. Yet many feel that times now are harder for the Church than ever before - and that spirits are low. People are asking what has happened to the Church that they have loved, served and belonged to for so long and how the Church can have a strong, vibrant future.
The Church's motto, semper reformanda, means 'always to be reformed,' but what kind of reformation is needed now to bring about the future for which so many so long?
Doug Gay is a highly respected minister, author and theologian who knows the Church of Scotland in all its many facets. In this important book, he challenges the church he loves to do some 'hard thinking with a soft heart.'
Gay offers some brand new insights to inspire more fruitful conversation across the whole Church, both about what is happening right now and what can enable a bright future.
Doug Gay is a Church of Scotland minister who teaches theology at the University of Glasgow, where he is also Principal of Trinity College. He has been a regular speaker at Greenbelt Festival and is internationally known for his work on emerging church and alternative worship.
