Whose kingdom are we building? Leading Christian theologian challenges Church of England ahead of #ThyKingdomCome global prayer campaign
As the Church of England this month joins other Christian communities across the country and around the world in ten days of prayer ‘for more people to come to know Jesus Christ’, an Oxford theologian has called on Christians to be still and listen to the concerns of the world.
The Very Revd Prof Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, has called on the Church of England to reflect on what kind of kingdom it is building, as its focus on charismatic evangelism over the last thirty years risks achieving little and alienating many.
As Modern Church enters its 120th anniversary year (it was founded on 27th July 1898), we have much to celebrate: a long history of publishing quality theological work that has both contributed to and, from time to time, shaped the national theological debate, not least in the Church of England.
Modern Church has always been about communication: of ideas, critique, a theological method, and scholarship. How we continue and communicate that heritage and continuing work in a digital age and new context has become a pressing question.
