Publisher's Description

Thirty years ago John Hull wrote “What Prevents Christian Adults from Learning?�. This new book asks “What Prevents Christian Adults from Acting?� How has it come about that the Church appears to be so preoccupied with itself? What happened to the quest for the social justice of the Kingdom of God?
John Hull's search for understanding took him back to the prophetic tradition of the Bible, and he discovered that this has become neglected and even betrayed. Christian discipleship must be more than church-going and prayer. Christians must resist the unjust structures of society in the prophetic tradition. Theological reflection is not enough!

Author Bio

John Hull is Honorary Professor of Practical Theology at the Queenâs Foundation in Birmingham.

Editorial Reviews

This is an important book for people involved with fresh expressions of church. It encourages us to imagine these new communities as inclusive communities of love, that join God in uprooting sources of injustice, and that tie together personal faith and social action. I don’t agree with it all, but I am most grateful I have read it.
It was my privilege, while studying at Queen’s Foundation, to both teach alongside and be mentored by Professor Hull:a theologian who was not satisfied with ideas that are challenging but invited us to actions that threatened ideas and the unjust structures that straiten us.
John Hull allows us to see prophecy not as an ancient paradigm to be overlaid onto modern dilemmas but as a continuously evolving and dangerous medium for social change. The joy, mischief, and vast intellectual honesty of his personality make this book not just one ‘about’ the prophetic church but a prophetic Word spoken to bring such a church about.
