Prodigal Christianity will offer a down to earth, accessible, and yet provocative ways of understanding Gods mission of redemption in the world, and how followers of Christ can participate in this work. It speaks into the discontent of the post-evangelical twenty-something-plus generations with what has become of the Emergent Church and its alternatives, the Neo-Reformed movement and the pragmatic Missional church networks. Playing off these two streams, appreciatively yet constructively, Prodigal Christianity will offer the building blocks for a missional theology that moves Christians forward into a way of life that lives the gospel in our culture for these times. In Brian McLaren-like like prose, Prodigal Christianity hopes to fill the gap for the average Christian left discontented with the current options after evangelicalism.
