Malcolm Duncan is a prophet, calling the Church to be true to its calling as an agent of change and a beacon of hope. Across the world Christians are working out fresh, exciting ways of being 'good news people'. Malcolm sets out to re-capture a bigger, brighter vision of God and the role of the Church. He outlines God's great plans for the world and offers an inspirational view of the mission of the local church. God is at work throughout the world: our task is to discover where He is working and join Him there! He reminds us of the resources God has provided - from the great story of scripture to the abiding presence of the Spirit - and encourages us to be captivated by what God is doing. God works through the ordinary and the everyday. The strength of this book lies not just in this vision of the Church worldwide, but in the many vivid examples of local churches that are making a difference. Malcolm challenges us to be people of hope.
Previously Head of Mission at Evangelical Alliance, Rev. Malcolm Duncan is now Movement Director at Faithworks. An Elim minister originally from Northern Ireland, he is a prolific speaker and writer.
