In 2004 Mission-shaped Church presented a challenge to church leaders. Now Mission-Shaped Questions addresses the big theological and practical issues that have arisen. Drawn from a range of Anglican and Methodist backgrounds, the highly-respected contributors take an incisive look at church and its future. They tackles questions such as: What exactly is church? Can we develop churches that can transform culture? Can we be mission-shaped and kingdom-focused too? These contributions are an essential read for anyone committed to the future of church and mission.
'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
