In this provocative book, author, consultant, and church leadershipdeveloper Reggie McNeal debunks these and other old assumptions andprovides an overall strategy to help church leaders move forward inan entirely different and much more effective way. In ThePresent Future, McNeal identifies the six most importantrealities that church leaders must address including: recapturingthe spirit of Christianity and replacing "church growth" with awider vision of kingdom growth; developing disciples instead ofchurch members; fostering the rise of a new apostolic leadership;focusing on spiritual formation rather than church programs; andshifting from prediction and planning to preparation for thechallenges of an uncertain world. McNeal contends that by changingthe questions church leaders ask themselves about theircongregations and their plans, they can frame the core issues andapproach the future with new eyes, new purpose, and new ideas.
