Product Description

Review

'If we are to grow and mature as a mixed economy Church, there are hard questions to be asked and answered. We need first-class thinking to back up and support all that is happening at local level. I hope this collection will get the attention it richly deserves.' -- former Archbishop Rowan Williams 'I hope Mission-shaped Questions will help capture the imagination of those who think that the Fresh Expressions movement sits lightly to theology.' -- Archbishop John Sentamu 'At last! A book on mission which doesn't duck questions or offer simplistic answers.' -- Vivienne Faull, Dean of Leicester 'Exciting, challenging, difficult, hopeful - this book marks a decisive shift. Mission is the new culture and the old questions about church now have a vital currency.' -- Simon Downham, Vicar/Senior Pastor, St Paul's Church, Hammersmith 'Wise, big picture stuff, rooted in real life.' -- Lucy Moore, Associate Missioner for Fresh Expressions and part of the leadership team of Messy Church

Format: Paperback
The back cover quotes Archbishop John Sentamu who hopes this will disprove the charge that Fresh Expressions "sits lightly to theology" - I can only assume that he had not actually read the book when it gave the quote as I found this collection a big disappointment - in many of the essays the level of scholarship appeared weak and the arguments put forward were little more than a string of buzz-words with out any depth.

If you have ever read anything about fresh expressions or Mission-shaped Church then I wouldn't bother with this book as you are unlikely to find anything new here. If you have never read anything about fresh expressions or Mission-shaped Church then don't start here...

Format: Paperback
What is going on in mission in the Church of England today? What is driving the action and the thinking? And what are the chances of success in what some call a "post-Christian" society?

This is not so much a book as a compendium, and whatever your viewpoint or concern, if you are interested in mission this is essential reading. Don't read the lot as the quality is uneven; be judicious about which chapters you dive into; skim the ones that look less interesting. I would say you should definitely read the opening and closing sections, and also the analysis of data on faith written by Linda Barley.

You should emerge hopeful, if only because the Church of England is giving mission its best shot after long years of hoarding the riches of faith.

There's some gold in this, but the quality and style of the contributions varies enormously. Skim read it all, and spend serious time with the bits that you need.
