Has the Church lost sight of her original vocation of living out her mission by serving the world?

There is a prevailing ecclesiology of fatalism which suggests that it has, and that there is nothing to do be done about. Bearing Witness in Hope argues however, that the church still has a role in bearing witness fruitfully and creatively even within a context of crisis. Leading thinkers offer theoretical, contextual and practical responses to encourage a renewed love for the church and renewed energy to bear witness appropriately and creatively.

Chapters include:

*Richard Bauckham - on New Testament perspectives on a church in crisis
*Alister McGrath - challenging the narrative of decline
*Rev Dr Carlton Turner - on BAME Presence and the Witness of Diversity and Inclusion
*Dr Susie Snyder - on attending to those on the margins
