Ancient Faith, Future Mission
Full Product Description
Fresh Expressions conjures up childrens clubs, café church and innovative youth work, yet this is not the whole story. Churches from the traditional wings of the church are being equally creative and imaginative, exploring alternative ways of worshipping and being Christian communities. Their focus may be more contemplative than action-packed, but the place of encounter with God needs space and silence.
Practitioners from such churches tell their stories and reflect theologically on the initiatives they are exploring. Some of the very best names in the field have contributed to this book which will make a unique and important contribution to the understanding and practice of mission today.
Ancient Faith, Future Mission by Steven Croft; Ian Mobsby was published by Canterbury Press in May 2009 and is our 20461st best seller. The ISBN for Ancient Faith, Future Mission is 9781853119736.

Fresh Expressions in the Sacramental TraditionJim Currin, via The Good Book Stall
Starting with the address at a national pilgrimage for Fresh Expressions by Rowan Williams, this book builds on his interesting and inspiring words to provide various examples of how ‘FX’ works out in the ‘sacramental Tradition’. It may be a surprise to many that it does but here we have a variety of examples from ancient Celtic in ‘Contemplative Fire’ to a Eucharist based around U2 and the Millennium Development Goals: called U2charist! This is a highly informative and well written book by a collection of contributors who make the more technical theological explanations very accessible. It is a valuable insight and addition to the various books on ‘FX’ which illustrates how it is becoming accepted, and understood within the wider church context. This should open more doors for churches to engage with the Gospel and Culture questions today, and reach out with greater clarity and effectiveness. Commended by the Archbishop of Canterbury, this book will do just that and I am grateful that the ‘FX’ team have brought it together.
