Product Description


'...a dramatically prophetic book about the church – full of insight, imagination and creative theology' -- Christianity Magazine, March 2005

'Packed with stimulating ideas' -- Church of England Newspaper, 24th December 2004

The Complex Christ combines a theological integrity with imaginative and innovative ways of thinking about Church. A 'must read'. -- Pete Ward, lecturer and author of Liquid Church

[An] important and in some ways unique book. Poetic, prophetic, extremely challenging, hard, gentle and always persuasive... a momentous achievement. -- Ian Mobsby -

About the Author

Kester Brewin teaches at a large comprehensive school in Inner London. He also writes on education, most recently completing a paper for the think-tank Demos on government policy and school transformation. Born into a vicarage in 1972, he has been deeply involved in the Church ever since, and his passion to see it re-incarnated has led him down myriad ecclesiastic avenues. In 1998 he co-created the 'Dreamspace' weekend in London, out of which the alternative worship group Vaux was born. A collective of artists and city-lovers, Vaux has been exploring urban theology through various media ever since. Kester is married with a young child; he used to find time to enjoy reading and short film production.

By A Customer on 9 Mar. 2005
Format: Paperback
The Complex Christ is a fantastic piece of work. It's thoughtful, provocative and engaging. Kester manages to successfully combine a blend of original theological reflection, engagement with the arts and culture, and insights from the science of emergence. All this is fused with his own and alternative worship community Vaux's journey of incarnating Christ in the urban context.
Highly recommended!
