Foreward by David Neff

Over the past 30 years, this book has been recognized as Webber's seminal work, providing a firm foundation for the ancient-future faith movement.

Here is Webber's original clarion call, presented with an extensive forward by David Neff, editor-in-chief of Christianity Today magazine and executive director of the Robert E. Webber Center for an Ancient-Evangelical Future.

This book will promote new conversations about ancient-future faith and its relationship to modern evangelicalism.

Robert Webber's legacy testifies to the vitality evangelicals experience when insights of the early church inform community life and ministry.

His original expression of this theme, presented here with a foreword by David Neff (director of the Robert E. Webber Center for an Ancient-Evangelical Future), promises to stimulate new and ongoing conversations about ancient-future faith. _____________________________ 

Series Information:

Each book presents an issue related to faith and Christian practice from a particular point of view -- that of drawing wisdom from the past and translating these insights into the present and future life of the church, its faith, worship, ministry and spirituality.

Tell others about Jesus:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith).  ______________________________
