Publisher: Paternoster Press
Book Condition: New
Since the 1970s the so called ?New Church? networks with their apostolic leadership teams have become an established part of the charismatic evangelical scene in the UK. In Part One the stories of the diverse apostolic groupings are traced from the 1960s to the present day. Part Two is a study, based on empirical research, of leaders in apostolic networks. Part Three explores the theologies found in these churches and Part Four concludes with some sociological and theological analysis. Bookseller Inventory # KAYAPOSTO
Synopsis: Apostolic networks link congregations together through personal relationships. They center around apostolic figures who have the ability to mobilize resources, make rapid decisions, and utilize charismatic gifts. Networks of churches organized in this way can respond to postmodernity and cultural innovation. This book takes the story of the emergence of apostolic networks in Britain from the visionary work of Arthur Wallis through the charismatic renewal into the full-fledged Restoration Movement of the 1980s. It covers the events of the 1990s, including the Toronto Blessing, and contains fresh information based upon interviews with leading players and new survey data as well as reanalysis of historical documents.
About the Author: William K. Kay is the director of the Center for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies at the University of Wales.
