Review of Mainline Protestant Clergy Leadership Literature

Three themes tend to dominate leadership literature written after 1968: the transformed perspective of race relations, the de facto disestablishment of mainline Protestantism, and the significant decline in the numerical strength of mainline Protestant denominations. While seminaries and denominational structures have continued to turn out clergy poorly suited to the new cultural situation, New Paradigm churches are blending elements and critiques of both liberal and conservative theology and ecclesiology to become a truly post-modern alternative. "After the Revolution," a report by Matthew J. Price, reviews Mainline Protestant clergy leadership literature since the 1960s.
