A Cosmopolitan
A Radical Experiment in Church Renewal
  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by William A. Holmes
  • Copyright © 1968 by Abingdon Press

" The author contends that the suburban church is still the dominant church in America.
Awakening it to new awareness of the cosmopolitan community it serves should receive top priority.

Here he develops forcefully the belief that a church should daringly seek to discern the signs and sounds of the twentieth century. It should seek new shapes and contours for itself before thinking about doing away with present institutional structures. Here he writes of such patterns he has helped to bring into being.

The first three chapters develop the reasoning behind these significant experiments.
Later chapters explore in detail the strategies and shapes the experiments have taken.

This book deals openly and honestly with the failures of the church, but offers new possibilities of change for other communities of faith. It will meet the definite need of many churchmen for a reason to remain with present institutional structures despite evident contradictions and perversions of those structures.

Some of these experiments have been successfully repeated elsewhere.
But the chief purpose of this book, says the author, is to say to other congregations: "Welcome to the laboratory, the rewards are worth the risks."
