In his book Planting Growing Churches For The 21st Century, Aubrey Malphurs, a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, offers an answer to these questions. He proposes that we do need to change our practices; specifically, we need to plant innovative and culturally relevant churches to reach a generation that has turned its back on the church and its outdated practices. We need a new way forward, and so Malphurs provides a guide to encourage and equip church planters to plant the types of churches that will successfully reach 21st-century Americans. The book is divided into three parts.

Overall I am disappointed with this book. In the first chapter Malphurs with broad strokes began painting a picture of the local church changing radically with the 21st century. He had my attention, with me hoping for some kind of new insight into how to address those changes. Instead, by chapter 3 he fell into a comparison of newer model churches such as Saddleback or Willow Creek to traditional model congregations. Throughout most of this volume, the author summarizes what has been said by other church growth authors, or what he has said in his other books. The best chapters of this book are chapters 1, 2 and 7. Chapter 1 identifies the changing church, and chapter 2 gives insight into why churches are changing. Chapter 7 addresses the vital nature of the local church, and what it is and isn't. With all the emphasis today on small Bible study groups and para-church movements, the authors' thoughts here are worth the price of the book.

This title is worth the money due to presence of the three chapters mentioned. It isn't worth the time to read it in its entirety, especially if you have read other works by Malphurs.

Aubrey Malphurs has numerous works about the church and congregational leadership on the market. I remember reading his book on planting churches which was excellent. This book is a needed wake up call to churches across America. He has some superb discussion on culture. He highlights the pervading influence that culture has on congregations. Culture is neither moral or immoral. Culture is. Also, there is good conversation on the need to change to reach the culture around us. There is too much resistance to change in too many congregations. A congregation must be evangelistic and willing to reach out to new people. The problem is that us church people dislike people who have little background in church operations. The little markers within a congregation are not understood by those outside of the church. This book help a lot of leadership within the church. Not all of it we would agree with, but some of it is excellent. It disliked the focus on the mega-church movement. The author seemed to like this style of operations for congregations, I see a better method than a willow creek style of church. Overall the book will be informative and helpful, especially in the beginning chapters.

Malphurs is thorough in his accomplishing his purpose. He doesn't have to try hard to make the point that churches need to have healthy change. Most church leaders and staff members are already aware of the existing problem. However, they need help to understand how to fix the issue. Most of the chapters are well divided and straightforward in their intent. The subheadings and points contained within each chapter aide in the comprehension. This helps because there is a large amount of information discussed in each part. Also, at the end of the chapters, discussion questions help the reader internalize the content. The questions are well written and not just added as filler.

I believe that the principles and definitions presented in this book are foundational to understanding the local church and it's relationship to its community.

A New Kind of Church, is an amazing and honest look at how and why churches do the things they do. You normally hear that a book is worth buying if a chapter or two are good. It was hard to pick just one chapter. As a young minister (29) my generation is disappearing from church. Malphurs nails the reason why. We are not answering the questions that generation is asking. Malphurs explains why being relevant is the key to winning people to Jesus. I have always thought out side of the boxes, and felt like people worshiped the status quo. Malphurs gave me the freedom and relief that it is alright to think outside the box. Malphurs tackles the question does the New Testament give a pattern to do church or principles with guidelines. How you answer this question may in fact determine your impact.

I am in the process of considering new church models and this book was very helpful. Dr. Malphurs does an excellent job of providing working theologies of important factors such as change, culture and church. The book is loaded with scripture to back up his insights. He also provides the evidence necessary to understand why churches need to change. After reading the book, I bought a copy for all of our staff and church leadership. Before you dive into change, read this book and check out other resources by Dr. Malphurs.

This is a very informative book. It does cover new/old models of conducting church but also touches on key points of doctrine. It conveys the right idea of not being divided over non-doctrinal issues but rejoicing as fellow members of a diverse body grounded in doctrine.
