Looks to future trends in western culture and how the gospel story, the Bible and the Church can engage with it effectively.

The core narrative of Christianity, the book that
conveys it (the Bible) and the institution of the church have been marginalised by the development of modernity and post-modernity.
Strangely post-modernity created an opportunity for religious thinking and experience to re-enter many lives. Yet post-modernity is not an adequate framework for thinking about life. There is therefore an opportunity for Christians to imagine what comes after and to prepare the church for a new engagement of mission with western culture. The church, through a creative
missionary imagination, can re-define western cultural life. This sketches what such an approach might look like.

Colin Greene is Professor of Theological and Cultural Studies at Mars Hill Graduate School in Seattle. He is author of ‘Christology in Cultural Perspective’. Martin Robinson is an international
speaker, writer and Director of ‘Together in Mission’.
