Synopsis: Singing the Lord?s Song in a Strange Land? explores the experiences and insights of three congregations living on a large deprived housing estate in Ely, Cardiff, UK where the author is a minister. From their experiences of decline and loss, discovery and hope the author has developed a thesis rooted in the Old Testament paradigm of exile and offers a challenging critique of the Church?s self-centred nature and formulates the beginnings of a missiology in and for a «post-Church» society. A missiology that questions if the Church truly has a fixed and pre-eminent role in the mission of God.
About the Author: The Author: Peter Cruchley-Jones is a minister of the United Reformed Church in the UK. Having trained at the University of Oxford he completed his Ph.D through the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Prof. Werner Ustorf.
