Building Utopia

Full Product Description

The new urban areas are reshaping much of Britain. Those who live, work or minister within them are not only at the cutting edge of new forms of built environment, they must also discover new ways of being community and contemplate new expressions of Church. All this demands careful and bold analysis and creative theological reflections.

While powerful global economic forces are changing our landscapes, human beings have to wrestle with themes of belonging and identity. The gospel engages with these human narratives, driving and shaping a Christian search for alternative perspectives and practices. What are the appropriate building projects, mission programmes and lifestyles that will be effective in meeting the challenges of these urban settlements? How should other areas respond?

The writers of Building Utopia have worked together as a group, mapping the new situations, analysing their findings and drawing out those themes which demand attention making it possible to reflect theologically about the challenges of our newly built urban developments.

The editors are Laurie Green, Bishop of Bradwell and Chris Baker, Research Director of the William Temple Foundation. The writers, in addition to the editors, are Michael Fox, John Perumbalath, Sue Hutson and Bishop Brian Castle.

Building Utopia by Laurie Green; Chris Baker was published by SPCK in November 2008 and is our 49564th best seller. The ISBN for Building Utopia is 9780281058679.
