Can we try using the forum to open up a discussion around Adrian Alker’s recent book “Is Radical Church Possible?”
There are many ways we could approach this but we need to begin somewhere. So let’s try a fairly basic schedule and see if it appeals?
Could we aim to read and discuss Adrian’s text at roughly one/two chapters per week. The forum will be more effective if people are reading and contributing at roughly the same rate. This would give us a fairly focused couple of months (Oct-Nov 2016) to consider the issues raised.
The next post will open up discussion around the introduction and first chapter “Would the ‘Real’ Jesus Please Step Forward?”
You may find Adrian’s questions at the end of chapter 1 helpful in guiding your initial reflections.
