Death of the Church and Spirituality Reborn, The

What is the point of a religion - any religion?

If God truly guides the Church then where on Earth is He taking it?


A controversial book which some followers of Christianity, Wicca or New Age Philosophies may find challenging, The Death of the Church and Spirituality Reborn attempts to clarify trends that are leading to the death of the Church and a desire for a more spiritual approach to the pastoral care of the nation.


In this timely and passionate book Reverend John addresses the lack of spiritual leadership in our society. He speaks for the reality and value of spiritual experience and argues that the crusty old Church and the flaky New Age can both learn from and enrich one another. The one can find a vitality hitherto lacking, the other coherence and authority. Like his previous work on the Qabalah, this is a book to roll up your sleeves and engage with – written not necessarily for those who agree with its arguments but who share its concerns and are willing to respond to its challenge. ~ Mat Harvey, BBC Radio 4 / Guardian contributor, columnist

Clearly I don’t agree with all you write and as you are well aware it is always difficult seeing matters from one perspective. However it is very good that you have written as you have and I couldn't agree more with your call to more prayer and more reflection and thoughtfulness. I hope others enjoy reading the essays and it stimulates more debate. ~ The Bishop of Truro
