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, the book will offer an essential new perspective for scholars and practitioners alike.
