Christianity in the UK today is faced with growing cultural and religious diversity. Christian migrants bring with them new ways of doing theology, new styles of worship, and new expressions of the faith. Increased levels of migration mean that the Church needs to reconsider what a `mission-shaped church' looks like.
Multicultural Kingdom explores some of the causes and implications of ethnic diversity on the British Christian landscape - and the implications on the landscape of theology itself. Why, it asks, do we prefer to remain segregated in our ecclesiology? Why indeed, do several churches of different ethnic heritage use the same building for services on Sunday but do not get to worship together?
Articulating for the first time an extensive 'multicultural missiology' for the UK church, this book will offer an essential new perspective for scholars and practitioners alike.
