Past and present ideas about faith are under major reconstruction as we move into a new century with new ideologies. Technology has dramatically changed the way we see and understand the world. Culture gaps between generations are widening. The church's identity is changing, as well as the imagery, language and thought forms with which we express our faith. Visions of the future of the mainline church seem stuck between two extremes--that of a small faithful remnant of the church, and the mega-church model. In Jacob's Blessing: Dreams, Hopes and Visions for the Church, authors Donna Sinclair and Christopher White combine their ministerial and journalistic strengths to write with honesty and hope about the future of the church.

Donna Sinclair is an award-winning writer and journalist who has traveled widely in Canada, Africa, Central America, Britain, and Eastern Europe. Besides authoring the first A Woman's Book of Days, she is the co-author of Emmaus Road, Jacob's Blessing, Getting Along, and Christian Parenting. She is a senior writer with the United Church Observer. She lives with her husband Jim in Toronto and North Bay, Ontario.


Christopher White is the minister of Westminster United Church in Whitby, Ontario. He is the author of The Twelve Days of Christmas and coauthor of Emmaus Road: Churches Making Their Way Forward and Jacob's Blessing: Dreams, Hopes and Visions for the Church.
