Based on the author's year-long series in Christianity and Renewal. A brilliant flash of light . . . the feeling of being shaken like a rag doll . . . and suddenly the world changes completely. Catapulted forty years into the future, Nick Page wakes up in a Britain where furniture talks, egg-like pods are the mode of transportation -- and the church as we know it has disappeared. In an age where virtual reality is a lifestyle and technology exalts convenience at the cost of personal dignity, Nick faces the difficult questions: Why has the church disappeared? Can we do anything to change? And, why is no one willing to tell Nick how he died? The Church Invisible is a wonderfully inventive look at the future of the UK church. Engaging, provocative and very, very funny, this book challenges the church to change. Based on the latest research, it goes beyond dry statistics to weave a story that explores the issues facing the church of today. The future of the church depends on whether we will value what God values. In the words of Nick's guide, Lydia, 'It's not enough to talk about the good news. We have to be the good news.'
