    Building Utopia: seeking the authentic church for new communities

    ,
    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 reflection. 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 the urban settlements? How should other areas respond? The writers of this book have worked together as a group, mapping the new situation, 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 Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life

    , ,
    One of the most popular current views on spirituality is that there are varied paths to God. In this new Ancient-Future series book, Bob Webber evaluates this common misunderstanding of spirituality as separated from God's story, extremely self-focused, and shaped by our surrounding culture. This challenging work offers a corrective, calling us to an alternative Christian spirituality, one that reveals two sides-that of God's "divine embrace" of us and our passionate response. The Divine Embrace is a fresh, grounded look at true spirituality that will be embraced by pastors, thinking Christians, and anyone looking for an engaging and thorough treatment of this topic.

    My Grandfather’s Blessings: Stories of Strength, Refuge and Belonging

    , ,
    In My Grandfather's Blessings, Rachel Naomi Remen, a cancer physician and master storyteller, uses her luminous stories to remind us of the power of our kindness and the joy of being alive. Dr Remen's grandfather, an Orthodox rabbi and scholar of the Kabbalah, saw life as a web of connection and knew that everyone belonged to him, and that he belonged to everyone. He taught her that blessing one another is what fills our emptiness, heals our loneliness, and connects us more deeply to life. Life has given us many more blessings than we have allowed ourselves to receive. My Grandfather's Blessings is about how we can recognise and receive our blessings and bless the life in others. Serving others heals us. Through service we will discover our own wholeness – and the way to restore hidden wholeness in the world.

    The Contemplative Pastor

    Any pastor who needs to get back to spiritual basics will do well to read and absorb this book. Known to many as “a pastor’s pastor,” Eugene Peterson here speaks words of wisdom and refreshment for pastors caught in the busyness of preaching, teaching, and “running the church.” To get at the often overlooked essentials of ministry, Peterson redefines the meaning of pastor through three vivid, strengthening adjectives – unbusy, subversive, and apocalyptic – and then focuses on pastoral ministry and spiritual direction “between Sundays.” Illustrated with engaging anecdotes from Peterson’s own experience as a pastor, the book includes poetic reflections on the Beatitudes and discussions of such themes as curing souls, the ministry of small talk, the language of prayer, and sabbatical. The Contemplative Pastor ends with several fervent poems centred on the incarnation, the doctrine closest to pastoral work. Entitled “The Word Made Flesh,” this concluding section is a fitting finale to Peterson’s discerning, biblically based insights on the art of pastoring.

    Urban to the Core: Motives for Incarnational Mission

    Urban to the Core – Motives for Incarnational Mission – Juliet Kilpin The world is urban at its core – over half the world’s population live in cities and most of the global poverty resides there too. Urbanisation affects all of us, whether we live in cities or not, and this impact will increase in the coming decades. For fifteen years Urban Expression has been motivating people to get up and move into inner-city neighborhoods to see what they can learn and what difference they can make. This book gets into the heads and hearts of our teams and unpacks the values that have inspired these missionaries to be urban to the core. Grass-roots honest reflections from some of our one hundred current and former team members and mission partners, capture the essence of what has shaped the thinking and activity of this experimental urban mission agency. If you are concerned about cities, those on the margins of society, cross-cultural mission or new forms of church this book will inspire and challenge your core convictions about mission priorities in an urban world.

    Hope against darkness: The Transforming Vision of St Francis in an Age of Anxiety

    Paradox in the Gospel

    ,
    Life and the gospel contain a good deal of paradox, but a survey has showed that evangelists often ignore it. Here Jim Currin wants to stir a discussion to make evangelism more effective, in the belief that acknowledging paradox makes the gospel more exciting, relevant, and attractive to today's spiritual seeker.

    Encountering Exile

    , ,
    The decline of the Church in the West means many Christian leaders are forced to taste a bittersweet draught of hopes fulfilled and deferred, liberally laced with failure and even shame. Our world seems so different to the joyful simplicity of the new Church of the New Testament. Where else in the Scriptures could we look to cope and hope?' George Lings investigates. This booklet is part of the Encounters on the Edge series. A downloadable PDF version of the booklet is also available.

    Life Together

    , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the now famous theologian who was martyred by the Nazis in 1945, wrote this book on the eve of World War II. It resulted from his experience as head of a semiary of the German 'Confessing Church' at Finkenwalde near Stettin. Here many of the pastors who witnessed against Hitler received their inspiration. It was, as Professor John D. Godsey points out in his study of The Theology of Deitrich Bonhoeffer, 'a kind of theological education that was startlingly new in Germany: a communal life in which Jesus Christ's call to discipleship was taken seriously.' Professor Godsey calls Life Together 'simply written, powerfully convincing and unusually quotable...It is an attempt to give practical guidance to those who want to take their lives as Christians seriously.'
