After McDonaldization : mission, ministry, and Christian discipleship in an age of uncertainty by John William Drane( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his earlier The McDonaldization of the Church, noted author John Drane critiqued current church trends toward "fast food" spirituality while offering suggestions for change. In his long-awaited sequel, After McDonaldization, Drane addresses key questions for Western Christianity in a global context. He argues that increasing numbers of people are turning to "spirituality" even while church attendance has continued to decline in the US and Europe, and that the continuing impact of globalization and consumerism has been joined by a post-9/11 culture of fear and a search for truth. In light of these developments, Drane presents a case for a more practical theology, a reinvigorated style of ministry, and a restatement of classic Christian beliefs for the twenty-first century. - Publisher

Revelation : the Apocalypse of St. John( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Revelation of St. John, otherwise known as The Apocalypse, is for many the most fascinating book of the Bible. Its vivid images - of gigantic angels, ghostly horsemen, multi-headed beasts, the bottomless pit, the battle of Armageddon, and the Last Judgement - have directly inspired writers and artists such as Dante, Milton, Bunyan, and Blake, and have informed the work of many others. Using the New Jerusalem Bible, Revelation takes the reader on a journey to the end of the world."--Jacket
The McDonaldization of the church : spirituality, creativity, and the future of the church by John William Drane( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why are the churches struggling to maintain credibility in a culture in which there are more spiritual seekers than at any time in living memory? John Drane believes that they have become stereotyped structures, offering uninventive pre-packaged worship to a dwindling minority. But there are exciting opportunities for growth, he argues - if only the churches rediscover their creativity and flexibility, and offer something more nourishing for post-modern spiritual appetites than the equivalent of fast food."--BOOK JACKET
