This visionary book from one of the most intriguing and unsettling new voices to have emerged from the churches in recent years finds life and growth in surprising places. Barbara Glasson's widely discussed first book, I Am Somewhere Else, described `the bread church', the inclusive faith community in Liverpool where people gathered to bake bread and worship God together. She has since worked with lesbian, gay and transgendered Christians, with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, with a group of disabled ministers and with other individuals and groups dealing with trauma and displacement. It is in these `prophetic communities' that she has discovered new ways of understanding the transforming power of the love of God. The `Exuberant Church is not a church on a `journey', not an `emerging church', but something more explosive and unpredictable and messy, a church undergoing the strange, frightening but liberating process of `coming out'. In The Exuberant Church we are invited to a new way of understanding mission and the church. At a time of meltdown, reorientation and confusion, Barbara Glasson sees hope for the churches in communities sometimes seen as threatening and troubling, and in the process of `coming out' something both profoundly human and deeply of God.
