What does liberation theology actually look like in 21st century Britain? How can the Church respond faithfully to issues like war, climate change and vast global inequalities? A 'fresh expression' church in the centre of Bradford has explored these questions through radical forms of worship, non-violent direct action (for example, physically resisting the unjust detentions of asylum seekers) and experimenting with new ways of being community that help to build the reign of God. Church members have been arrested, come under the scrutiny of security forces and been super-glued together at the gates of hell (aka Aldermaston Atomic Weapons Establishment). This is their story: their successes and disasters, and their modelling of a new version of the Action/Reflection cycle called EARS (Education, Action, Reflection, Sustaining), aimed at helping other Christians to evolve their own way of thinking, growing - and demonstrating the relevance of Church in today's contexts.

Review:

This excellent book marks a detailed renewal in the field of liberation theology... The reign of God finds excellent celebration and probable advance in Howson's chronicles. Attractively delivered and fully justifiable of the subtitle's boast: 21st Century Liberation Theology in Action! Immensely readable, comprehensive, clear and compelling.' --thegoodbookstall.org.uk

About the Author:

Chris Howson grew up on a council estate near Staines. He became a social worker after serving as President of the Students Union in Bradford, where he now has responsibility for founding fresh expressions of Church for young people in and around the centre of the city. He ran a hostel for those coming out of prison whilst setting up and living in a Radical Routes Housing Co-op in the riot-afflicted area of Manningham Lane. After training for the Anglican ministry at Cranmer Hall, Durham, he worked as a curate on the Holme Wood Estate before being priested by the Bishop of Cuba and Uruguay.
