This important book poses a challenging question: what are the aims of mission and are they being achieved through Fresh Expressions?
It argues that mission is equally about social transformation or, in biblical terms, building the kingdom of God, as well as building the church.
Theological reflection and stories from front line practitioners in churches in the sacramental traditions (with their heritage of service in poor communities) combine to create a unique, timely and valuable resource which includes contributions from leading names in the study and practice of mission today.
'This book should inspire, intrigue and invite fresh energies into a new phase of Christian outreach that is both contextual and true to the faith of the church through the ages.' Fresh Expressions Website
