"What would Jesus do?" The inspiring and challenging story of one church's attempt to live out Liberation Theology in 21st century. Britain...What does liberation theology actually look like in 21st century Britain? How can the Church respond faithfully to issues like war, climate change and vast global inequalities? A 'fresh expression' church in the centre of Bradford has explored these questions through radical forms of worship, non-violent direct action (for example, physically resisting the unjust detentions of asylum seekers) and experimenting with new ways of being community that help to build the reign of God. Church members have been arrested, come under the scrutiny of security forces and been super-glued together at the gates of hell (aka Aldermaston Atomic Weapons Establishment). This is their story: their successes and disasters, and their modelling of a new version of the Action/Reflection cycle called EARS (Education, Action, Reflection, Sustaining), aimed at helping other Christians to evolve their own way of thinking, growing - and demonstrating the relevance of Church in today's contexts.
