MOJ Book Discussion: John Allen's "The Future Church"

We'd like to have a focused discussion of John Allen's new book, "The Future Church."  As the book is organized according to 10 "Trends," we'll focus on one trend per week.  On the Monday of the designated week, one of us will provide an opener, hopefully with some thoughts on the implications for the Catholic legal theory project, and then to the extent that it is helpful to keep the discussion focused, also serve as a thread coordinator for that week.  Discussion from the previous thread could also continue, but this way we'll be sure to cover the wide ground that Allen sets out.  For MOJ readers who would like to read along and participate, here is our schedule with the coordinators:

Week of 1/18 - A World Church - Amy Uelmen & Rick Garnett

1/25 - Evangelical Catholicism - Rob Vischer

2/1 - Islam - Russ Powell

2/8 - The New Demography - Michael Scaperlanda

2/15 - Expanding Lay Roles - Lisa Schiltz

2/22 - The Biotech Revolution - Robert George

3/1 - Globalization - Kevin Lee

3/8 - Ecology – Bob Hockett

3/15 - Pentecostalism - Greg Sisk

3/22 - Multipolarism – Tom Berg
