The Church by its very nature is called to be hope filled and future orientated – it exists as a sign, instrument and foretaste of the coming Kingdom of God. Christian leadership, therefore, is at heart all about eschatological influence.
Engaging with the work of influential theological voices such as Leslie Newbigin, Tom Wright and Martyn Percy, Hopeful Influence argues that it is in the process of helping others to see, participate in or experience the world to come that Christian leadership becomes manifest.
With contributions from influential leaders in different spheres of life, including Dr Eve Poole, Stephen Timms, MP, along with theologian and activist Selina Stone, Jude Padfield explores how this eschatatologically-fuelled vision might lead us towards a new manifesto for future leadership in the church, in politics, in business and the third sector, and in the home.
With foreword from Bishop Paul Bayes.
