‘Risk Takers’, from Spring Harvest veteran Malcolm Duncan, challenges readers to take an Early Church attitude to living the Christian life – spirit-led and good news driven.
The book of Acts is the story of the first Christians doing church together. It wasn’t systematized, ordered and disinfected. It was risky. They didn’t have a clue what was coming next – but they soon learned to depend on the Spirit. They tried, often failed, and then tried again.
In his book, Malcolm re-captures God’s vision for the Church and puts into the inescapable context of mission. The he highlights the common risks many stumble over including living in Gods provision, saying yes and embodying grace.
This book is an exciting invitation to Christians to take off the attitudes the modern church, of tail-gating through trough life, following the crowd and taking the easy, well-used paths. Instead Malcolm encourages and inspires readers to do the right option rather than the easy one. God is moving in our communities: our job is to discover where and join in!
Risk Takers by Malcolm Duncan was published by Lion Hudson in March 2013 and is our 8334th best seller. The ISBN for Risk Takers is 9780857210067.
This is a pacey, engaging and thoroughly challenging book from the equally pacey, engaging and thoroughly challenging Malcolm Duncan. This is a great gift for the resourcing and renewal of the local church.
The memorable line from this title that best captures sums it up for me is this:- "The unpredictable Spirit invites us to an adventure of faith." This is what we can so easily stray from. This Holy Spirit adventure is what is detailed in a brilliant and compelling way.
The concepts, scripture, stories and inspiration are well constructed, using eight well themed big-ideas that will encourage us to more accurately live an Acts-style faith. This is a robust sweep of risks in which we need to repeatedly engage with so that we might be renewed and rooted, just as God has always intended for us.
Risks are invited and fears are detailed with parity and wisdom. Obedience, faith and depth are encouraged, and I found this an even better read on the second visit. Safety never should trump obedience to God. And here's the fuel for that kind of living.
Classic fire for the belly, prompts for action, and encouragement for your spirit. It's a helpful resource for the hungry or plain-stuck Christian!

Conclusion: The Risks Start Now
"This book is like a stick of dynamite set under the seats of those who have allowed themselves to be hoodwinked by polite, conservative, respectable Christianity. It paints a picture of possibility. It cries out for a generation who are willing to rise and risk everything for the sake of the Kingdom and for the cause of Jesus Christ. Buy it, read it, act on it. You need not agree with everything you read in this controversial book, but you have to admit that Malcolm Duncan is a prophetic voice to the church in our day and generation." - Tony Campolo, author of 'Red Letter Christianity', 'Which Jesus?' & 'Choose Love, Not Power'.
