How has the Canadian religious landscape changed over the last seventy years? What do these changes mean for ministry in Canada today? What do we need to do differently? What changes might Christian churches need to make if they are to speak to contemporary society? In this Graduates’ Lecture, Professor Stuart Macdonald will explore these questions based on his findings in Leaving Christianity: Changing Allegiances in Canada since 1945. The book, written by Brian Clarke and Stuart Macdonald and published November 2017, offers a detailed and significantly different understanding of the religious reality of Canada today.
