When we pray ''Your Kingdom Come", what do we mean? Local neighbourhoods everywhere are affected by global changes, including the death of a single religious vision, shifting work and family patterns, and widespread scepticism. Violence and tension are rising. There is a way forward. Churches are taking a lead in community cohesion and transformation. If we are faithful, the future is full of hope. Duncan outlines a "Kingdom approach" affecting every area of community life. From housing to healthcare, from citizenship to crime prevention, ordinary Christians and local churches have a vital role to play. This is a manifesto for social transformation, peppered with examples from across the Western world.
Malcolm Duncan is Lead Pastor at Dundonald Elim Church, a Pentacostal church located in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He is Chair of Elim's Ethics and Public Theology Task Force and Theologian-in-Residence for Spring Harvest and Essential Christian. Malcolm regularly helps the British government and other groups to understand the role of church in society. He is deeply committed to serving the poor and excluded. Malcolm is a passionate communicator and he has regularly written, broadcast, taught and lectured on the themes of mission and Christian engagement with society.
