Samuel Wells is giving the prestigious Chalmers Lectures in Autumn 2019. This book comprises his six talks. It shares the vision of the church as imagined by HeartEdge, the growing network of churches established by St Martin-in-the-Fields, with its fourfold focus for renewing the mission activity of the church: commerce, culture, congregation and compassion. Six chapters explore the practical outworking of this vision: * For Such a Time as This: Locating the UK church in a global and gospel story; * Investing in the Kingdom: Taking money beyond the benefactor and the steward; * Minding God's Business: Realigning commerce and church; * Entertaining Angels Unawares: How God renews the church through the stones that the builders reject; * Let All the People Praise Thee: How the church may be part of a cultural renaissance; * On Earth as it is in Heaven: Towards a vision for the renewal of congregational life. A Future that's Bigger than the Past sets out a vision for renewing the local church that is energising, realistic and practical for small and large congregations alike. In response to prevailing narratives of decline, it reimagines how the church can live its vocation of receiving the abundance God gives us, and sharing that abundance far and wide. It recognises the surprising, exuberant and plentiful things that the Holy Spirit is doing in the world and calls the church to celebrate creation, enjoy culture and share in their flourishing. With a rich theological foundation and borne out in the practical experience of a growing number of local church communities, this groundbreaking book will enable churches to discover fresh ways in which they can become a blessing to the communities they serve.
