Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-24-2014
A shorter version of this review article was first published in Themelios. Theology in Missionary Perspective: Lesslie Newbigin’s Legacy Edited by Mark T.B. Laing and Paul Weston Pickwick Publications With the publication of a new collection of essays exploring the missiological implications of Lesslie Newbigin’s work there’s an opportunity for a new audience of evangelicals to engage with his writing. In his recent (and excellent) history of the post-war Globalisation of Evangelicalism, Professor Brian Stanley names Lesslie Newbigin alongside CS Lewis as one of two thinkers who have provided “an…

Home for Good Liverpool
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-22-2014
I have spent a lot of time up in Liverpool recently. It's been great to see Home for Good Liverpool taking off up there thanks to the support of Frontline Church, Bridge Chapel and Liverpool Lighthouse.  Helenor and Phil Watson and Si and June Valentine are local heroes doing a brilliant job pulling things together. They have some big meetings coming up so please pray for their work across the city. The aim is to help find all the foster carers and adoptive carers that the city needs so that…

Rico Tice, John Stott & Paradoxology
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-16-2014
I have been really encouraged by the breadth of support that my new book Paradoxology has been getting. Too often in our tribalised evangelical world books end up connecting only with a certain church group. I would love to see the different streams and tribes of the church working closely together as we have so much to learn from one another. So it was encouraging to me that some of my more conservative friends have been enthusiastic about Paradoxology. Rico Tice the founder and creator of Christianity Explored wrote the…

5 Things I enjoyed about Word Alive
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-15-2014
Its been a while since i have been to Word Alive so it was a pleasure to drive up to North Wales to take part in this year's event. 1. Opportunity to hang out with three Nigerian Bishops The highlight of my week at Word Alive was an evening laughing and swapping stories with three Nigerian Bishops. Each one of them doing Stirling work in a country which has some 20 million Anglicans. They shared frustrations with me about the level of wealth in some Nigerian churches and church planting…

Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-15-2014
I have the privilege of going to help at a lot of the UK’s Christian conferences. Everywhere I go there’s always something new to learn or ideas to enjoy. So I thought I would look for the positives where ever I go. Here are some of the things I really enjoyed about Spring Harvest this year 1.    The whole family curriculum I love the fact that at Spring Harvest everyone is learning about the same things. From the smallest children to the oldest adults we are all on the same…

How do you know if you have a problem with social media?
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-04-2014
I am running a seminar at Word Alive with the subject: Digital Discipleship : serving Christ on Social Media. Here's the blurb for the seminar: Discover the opportunities that Facebook and Twitter bring for mission and discipleship. Start the conversation early by following @krishk and tweeting a question using #Socialdisciple As I was preparing the seminar this week, I came across these images of poor old Ella Birchenough from Dover who dropped her Blackberry down a drain and then removed the drain cover and jumped inside to try and retrieve…

Christianity was never meant to be simple
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-04-2014
Really excited to show you this little video ( some may even say  its a mini-movie).  We made it to help people realise that asking big questions about your faith is a good thing. You can pre-order Paradoxology: Why Christianity was never meant to be simple right now or if you are at Spring Harvest or World Alive you can buy it right away from the bookshop. We had great fun making it so special thanks to: Lucas  who plays young old me. Zach  who plays the friend. Ruth who…

Men and Church
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-01-2014
I have been asked to respond to the challenge of the male gender deficit in church attendance. I wanted to make sure there really was a problem first. The most extensive research I could find (thanks to the wonderful EA information officer Kim Walker) revealed this table: Peter Brierley working off of the 2005 census argues for a discrepancy figure of 14% with female churchgoers in England at 57% and male churchgoers 43%. This is a scary imbalance but look what happens when it is broken down according to age…
