The first comprehensive resource for teaching faith leadership development in the twenty-first century. America is changing. Technology, global economics, immigration, migration, social networking and multiculturalism scream for communities of faith to critique and expand our vision of how leaders are prepared to serve in congregations and communities. The comprehensive resource for lay persons and clergy¿seminaries, retreats, seminars and congregational leadership development¿identifies what we need to know to be effective faith leaders in the twenty-first century and how to teach it. It explains how stakeholders¿congregational leaders, ordained religious leaders, educators, students and community leaders¿learn how to do theology in context and why contextual education is important. It isolates the unique challenges and opportunities various faith expressions and demographics have in their quest to teach theology. It also mines the latest research on change to see how change impacts leadership style and provides strategies for how faith leaders can educate congregations in our fast-changing world.
