I've been involved for the last few months with the Beyond400 website, giving an opportunity for a spread of British Baptists to imagine what the future might look like.
The web posts plus some of the comments have now been published as a book. Click here to buy a copy.
Not only does the book give a snapshot of contemporary hopes and dreams for the future but it also captures the breadth of thinking. A number of the entries could easily be used as discussion starters in home groups, church meetings or in sermon preparation.
It was never designed to be part of the 'official' BUGB futures conversation, but if all this baptist stuff seems remote, dull and irrelevant here is an accessible way to join the conversation and own a piece of baptist history.
