Full Product Description
Local neighbourhoods everywhere are affected by global changes, including the death of a single religious vision, shifting work and family patterns, and widespread scepticism. Violence and tension are rising.
There is a way forward.
Churches are taking a lead in community cohesion and transformation. If we are faithful, the future is full of hope. Duncan outlines a "Kingdom approach" affecting every area of community life. From housing to healthcare, from citizenship to crime prevention, ordinary Christians and local churches have a vital role to play. This is a manifesto for social transformation, peppered with examples from across the Western world.
Kingdom Come by Malcolm Duncan was published by Lion Hudson in November 2007 and is our 1690th best seller. The ISBN for Kingdom Come is 9781854247988.

Kingdom ComeJackie Scott, via The Good Book Stall
This is certainly a book for today. It is also not for the faint-hearted – it is an intellectual book with long chapters so it not easy to pick up for a short read. Having said that, Malcolm Duncan, leader of the Faithworks Movement looks at the issues that face Christians and the Church today in a post modern society with pluralistic views, as our world changes drastically from insular small community living to living in the global village. The challenges that face the church in Britain are immense and the statistics about church life make worrying reading. Given that, the author lays out the hope he has for the future based upon our understanding of the Kingdom of God. Once we have understood what we believe based on Biblical principles and not the historical western imperialistic version of Christianity, then we can start to see how the churches to which we belong can impact society through caring for the poor, the downtrodden and those who suffer injustice. He uses examples from around the British Isles showing how different communities are bringing God’s Kingdom to those who are in need and encourages us in our endeavours.
