A young Christian from Ireland moves to India - not to evangelize but to help girls escape prostitution. A retiring missionary in Brazil, who long ago left all remnants of home, encounters a 30-year-old, laptop-carrying family man who rarely stops texting friends in the States. A Kenyan pastor struggles to connect with a congregation that watches a mega-church pastor on the Internet every Sunday morning.
The community of Christians around the world, also known as the Global Church, is stunning in its scope and spiritual impact. But what is happening to the Church as technology, generational transitions, and cultural shifts make their mark? In The Meeting of the Waters, Fritz Kling identifies seven trends, such as migration, machines, and the growing Mercy Generation, having an impact on today's Global Church. Equal parts travelogue, character study, and global documentary, this breakthrough book is for anyone eager to make a difference in a changing world.
