Andrew Root's well-received Ministry in a Secular Age trilogy offers a developed practical theology that uniquely attends to divine action. The three volumes engage with Charles Taylor's articulation of our cultural context and the challenge he raises for Christian life in a Western world that has found divine action increasingly unbelievable. This project provides not only a needed and deep dialogue with the issues Taylor presents but also offers a constructive vision for confronting Taylor's challenge.

In Faith Formation in a Secular Age, Root provides an alternative take on the issue of youth drifting away from the church and articulates how faith can be formed in our secular age.

Through an abundance of examples, The Pastor in a Secular Age explores how pastors have both perpetuated and responded to our secular age, and provides a new vision for pastoral ministry today.

The Congregation in a Secular Age articulates why it is so hard for congregations to change and encourages an approach that doesn't fall into the negative traps of our secular age.
