Threshold of the Future....Highlights

M.Riddell (1998) Threshold of the Future: Reforming the Church in the Post-Christian West. SPCK

"Vision is a romantic and oft-abused term. Its discontinuity with the present is useful to a wide range of people who wish to pursue their own ends, and have others follow them. Simply because such charismatic leaders speak in terms of vision', does not make their proposals genuinely so. Discerning the validity of vision is no easy task, except in retrospect."

Graceway An example of a church used by Riddell say "We’re committed to mission those respects the fact that evangelism is a process and involves more than saving the soul."
