about

Every five hundred years, the church cleans out its attic and has a giant rummage sale. Well, not exactly. But according to Phyllis Tickle, this is an accurate summary of the church''s massive transitions over time. According to the pattern, we are living in such a time of change right now. Tickle calls it "the Great Emergence"-a time of dizzying upheaval and hopeful promise during which various sectors of today''s church swirl into a great confluence at the center. As an internationally renowned expert on religion, Phyllis Tickle has incisive perspective on the trends and transformations of our time.
