Those of you who follow me on twitter or follow my other blog will know that I am shortly to have my first book published. In Out of Nothing: A Cross Shaped Approach to Fresh Expressions, I tell the story of my pioneering ministry on a new-build housing development on the edge of Northampton. As I write, I highlight and investigate ecclesiological questions that arose along the way that are pertinent to fresh expressions of church. In the end I attempt to answer the question ‘what is success?’ by proposing a theological foundation by which to understand fresh expressions of church. This foundation is Christ-centred and is based on the action of God in the world, and takes in understandings of atonement origins from Karl Barth and Eberhard Jüngel.
Out of Nothing is published by SCM Press at the end of this month (June 2018). You can pre-roder your copy here.
