Finding Jesus on the Metro | And Other Surprises Doing Church in a New Day (Nixon)
Finding Jesus on the Metro, Nixon’s first book since his bestseller I Refuse to Lead a Dying Church!, explores what it means for a church to be on a ministry journey into the unchartered territory of unprecedented social change in 21st century America. Written from an urban perspective, Nixon has created an excellent tool for church leaders that: 1) helps them to recognize that their ministry must change in order to be effective and 2) equips them with the necessary resources to implement and cultivate this change. Divided into two sections, Finding Jesus on the Metro first looks at the communities and cultures that shape and influence this generation of young adults and then describes how churches can be a part of this influence and outlines the journey that its leaders and members will go on as they become the faith community that the newest generations of Americans need.
