The Church after Innovation Questioning Our Obsession with Work, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship Andrew Root MINISTRY IN A SECULAR AGE

The call for pastors and congregations to be innovative can have a dark side: an obsession with contemporary relevance and entrepreneurship that lacks theo- logical depth and promises burnout and exhaustion. The Church after Innovation shines a light on the problem and offers a treatment.

“This book will help you to consider the possible costs of chasing innovation and entrepreneurship—for you and your church.” —ANGELA WILLIAMS GORRELL, author of Always On “There’s something satisfying about a story that is this big, bold, and revealing about how our cultural presumptions came to be—especially when so beauti- fully told. A timely wake-up call.” —BRIAN BROCK, University of Aberdeen
