Review of Church Actually

  • Gerard Kelly, Church Actually: God's Brilliant Idea, Oxford: Lion Hudson, 2011

Gerard has written a real gem of a book here. He offers us imaginative and vibrant pictures of God's heartbeat for church. It's without doubt the best read on church in the market right now. He challenges the drabness, greyness and ugly dualism that turns people off the Christian faith! He re-imagines church in the context of a Creator God who is busy redeeming every nook and cranny of His broken world.

The Neema story

Kingdom Structures are vital if the gospel is to thrive.

This story is very significant when we think about the kingdom of God and the Body of Christ. Neema Crafts is not a church! It is a redeemed business. Of course it is inspired and nurtured by Christian teaching, faith and wisdom but a business has a different calling from a local church. This redeemed kingdom structure was able to transform Hezron's life in a way that a local church cannot!
