Fresh Expressions of Church and the Kingdom Of God

by Various


Price: £16.99
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
Published:July 2012
The third book in the Ancient Faith, Future Mission Series that looks at and arises out of the Fresh Expressions movement within the UK. This is a series of articles from well known contributors that look at the movement as it is happening and practiced, but also look with a critical eye, noting at times the tensions between intent and action, between saying and doing. This is extremely important, not least to help set up a framework of understanding and argument against what critics may say, but also as a checks and measures balance within the movement itself. As someone from within the Fresh Expressions movement, as it were, I found this book to be intelligent and erudite in its theology and outlook. Especially noteable for me were the chapters by Cray, Tickle and Harvey, although the others were still very good and spanned a range of ideas within the movement. Certainly one for any involved or interested in Fresh Expressions of Church, but probably also good for those outside the movement too.
