Andrew Root's well-received Ministry in a Secular Age series offers a developed practical theology that uniquely attends to divine action. Series volumes engage with Charles Taylor's articulation of our cultural context and the challenge he raises for Christian life in a Western world that has found divine action increasingly unbelievable. This project provides not only a needed and deep dialogue with the issues Taylor presents but also offers a constructive vision for confronting Taylor's challenge. Volumes include:

· Faith Formation in a Secular Age: Responding to the Church's Obsession with Youthfulness
· The Pastor in a Secular Age: Ministry to People Who No Longer Need a God
· The Congregation in a Secular Age: Keeping Sacred Time against the Speed of Modern Life
· Churches and the Crisis of Decline: A Hopeful, Practical Ecclesiology for a Secular Age
· The Church after Innovation: Questioning Our Obsession with Work, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship
· The Church in an Age of Secular Mysticisms: Why Spiritualities without God Fail to Transform Us
