    Product Description

    ‘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!

    Conclusion: The Risks Start Now

    Malcolm Duncan is a prophet, calling the Church to be true to its calling as an agent of change and a beacon of hope. Across the world Christians are working out fresh, exciting ways of being 'good news people'.

    Malcolm sets out to re-capture a bigger, brighter vision of God and the role of the Church. He outlines God's great plans for the world and offers an inspirational view of the mission of the local church. God is at work throughout the world: our task is to discover where He is working and join Him there! He reminds us of the resources God has provided - from the great story of scripture to the abiding presence of the Spirit - and encourages us to be captivated by what God is doing.

    God works through the ordinary and the everyday. The strength of this book lies not just in this vision of the Church worldwide, but in the many vivid examples of local churches that are making a difference. Malcolm challenges us to be people of hope.
