About this item

The human transformation available at the 'limen' (literally: the edge or threshold), noticed across different cultures by anthropologists, is at the heart of the Gospel. Indeed the liminal place is the place of transformation and change par excellence. We live in age of enormous and rapid change to which we do not yet see an end. There is therefore a 'kairos' moment here for the church to understand the importance of liminality through this unique book. Reading this book will offer new 'lenses' to understand humanity, God's world, the shape of Christian discipleship, the church and its mission differently. The authors believe engaging with liminality can help both readers' faith and the church to be re-imagined - and have included case studies, exercises and questions in each chapter to help this process.
