Fresh Expressions And The Kingdon Of God
Full Product Description
Mission Shaped Church, the groundbreaking report which has sold over 20,000 copies has transformed understandings of mission. Fresh Expressions, which sprang into being in its wake, is an established presence in Britain, the USA and Canada.
This important book poses a challenging question: what are the aims of mission and are they being achieved through Fresh Expressions?
This book argues that mission is equally about social transformation or, in biblical terms, building the kingdom of God, as well as building the church. Theological reflection and stories from front line practitioners in churches in the sacramental traditions (with their heritage of service in poor communities) combine to create a unique, timely and valuable resource which includes contributions from leading names in the study and practice of mission today.
Fresh Expressions And The Kingdon Of God by Graham Cray was published by Canterbury Press in July 2012 and is our 34973rd best seller. The ISBN for Fresh Expressions And The Kingdon Of God is 9781848250918.

Fresh Expressions of Church and the Kingdom Of GodMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
The third book in the Ancient Faith, Future Mission Series that looks at and arises out of the Fresh Expressions movement within the UK. This is a series of articles from well known contributors that look at the movement as it is happening and practiced, but also look with a critical eye, noting at times the tensions between intent and action, between saying and doing. This is extremely important, not least to help set up a framework of understanding and argument against what critics may say, but also as a checks and measures balance within the movement itself. As someone from within the Fresh Expressions movement, as it were, I found this book to be intelligent and erudite in its theology and outlook. Especially noteable for me were the chapters by Cray, Tickle and Harvey, although the others were still very good and spanned a range of ideas within the movement. Certainly one for any involved or interested in Fresh Expressions of Church, but probably also good for those outside the movement too.
