What will the church of the future look like? How will we remain agile, attentive, relevant, and alive? In this book Keith Anderson demonstrates both practical solutions, and avenues of engagement rooted in deep faithful living and a changing culture of how we "do church".

I especially appreciated the multiple examples of vibrant, "out of the box" ministry that is reaching people where they are. Rather than simply offer a completely "new" lens - Anderson also effectively links the history of change in the church of the past to now. "Digital" is an important view - but so is the "cathedral" of the past in its community role and use.

As someone involved in how the church considers restructuring and relevance I found this book a helpful guide and reminder of what we may be called to be. I highly recommend this to those readers considering what relevant church might look like in the future. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0819229954, Paperback)

Rapid cultural and technological changes through the last two decades have changed the context for ministry. The development of digital social media and advances in affordable, mobile technologies have dramatically changed the way most people interact with others, communicate, organize, and participate in communities.

The Digital Cathedral is a warm embrace of the rich traditions of Christianity, especially the recovery of the pre-modern sense of cathedral, which encompassed the depth and breadth of daily life within the physical and imaginative landscape of the church. It is for anyone who seeks to effectively minister in a digitally-integrated world, and who wishes to embody the networked, relational, and incarnational characteristics of that ministry.
