Product description

From the blurb;

- How can the Gospel relate to secular life in modern Britain?
- How can we express the Gospel in contemporary terms?
- How far does the Church exist to serve society as it is and how far to challenge the assumptions on which society is based?

These, and other related questions, are discussed in this wide-ranging report which examines aspects of modern culture (secularisation, youth culture, other faiths, Urban Priority Areas, etc.) The place and style of evangelism is considered, and practical examples are given (in the area of baptismal policy, church structures, leadership patterns, etc.) of ways in which Gospel, culture and church life interact.

The report does not pretend to give ready-made answers, but aims to provide, in the words of the foreword, a "theological tool-kit to aid the task of constructing strategies and structures for each locality".

Excellent pages with slight edge-wear. There is a small inscription on the front flyleaf.
