The New Parish: How Neighborhood Churches Are Transforming Mission, Discipleship and Community (2014)

Paul Sparks, Tim Soerens and Dwight J. Friesen have seen―in cities, suburbs and small towns all over North America―how powerful the gospel can be when it takes root in the context of a place, at the intersection of geography, demography, economy and culture. This is not a new idea―the concept of a parish is as old as Paul’s letters to the various communities of the ancient church.
