What does faith look like in a world where Christianity no longer dominates economy, policy, and morality? Why are mainline Christian structures so intimidated by this inevitability? And how can the church learn from those radical-reformers of the past as we venture into this unforeseen post-Christendom world? In "A Living Alternative: Anabaptist Christianity in a Post-Christendom World," these questions and more are put to the test by some of the brightest new voices in the emerging Anabaptist tradition. "A Living Alternative" is an exceptional anthology that provides its readers a range of viewpoints using modern Anabaptist lenses. Offering alternative viewpoints to the dominant strains of Christianity that have narrowed and diminished important aspects of the Reign of God, "A Living Alternative" reshapes the landscape of the conversation and provides a way forward. Taking these critical issues into conversation with the past and present, readers will experience all the distinctive elements of the "Third Way" tradition including non-violence, Kingdom citizenship, and a Jesus-centered approach to a holistic faith practice. "A Living Alternative" also includes chapter study guides to foster creative new insights for individuals and communities alike, as we all prepare a faith for the future.
