Summary
'Wherever we turn in God's world we find his fingerprints, not just in the glories of the countryside but also in the tangled web of human life and culture. With all the contradictions and ambiguities we encounter and experience... we must never allow ourselves to forget that God is in the world, laughing, singing, shouting, whispering, healing, weeping, reconciling, enabling, resisting, forgiving... He has not given up on it and neither should we.' - From Chapter 9, 'Positively worldly'

'I was one of the original members of Holy Joes, and The Post-Evangelical is a great snapshot of what happened on the fringes of church in the UK in the 1990s. But 20 years on, it endures as a classic commentary on understanding why church fails to connect with people who define themselves as "spiritual and religious". Essential reading.' - Maggi Dawn, Dean of Chapel and Associate Professor of Theology and Literature, Yale Divinity School

'I first met Dave Tomlinson when I was a student some forty years ago. Twenty years later I was fascinated to read his reflections on his spiritual journey when he brought out the first edition of The Post-Evangelical, which provoked much debate and discussion. Another twenty years have passed in which its importance and influence have become clear, while the debate and the journey have continued to develop for all of us. It is a privilege to have had Dave as my parish priest for the last decade or more, so I warmly welcome this Classics edition - and look forward to where we are going next!' - Richard Burridge, Dean of King's College, London and Professor of Biblical Interpretation

Press Reviews

I was one of the original members of Holy Joe's, and The Post-Evangelical is a great snapshot of what happened on the fringes of church in the UK in the 1990s. But 20 years on, it endures as a classic commentary on understanding why church fails to connect with people who define themselves as "spiritual but not religious". Essential reading.
