AMC Rev J Vincent

The Good Faith Book Club's next choice is Inner City Testament: changing the world from the bottom, by John and the late Grace Vincent. Published by Ashram Press (a not-for-profit part of Ashram Community Trust), it is the story of two people who have given themselves to the inner city in Sheffield, told by themselves.

John J. Vincent is a Christian theologian and author in the field of Radical Christianity. As a Methodist minister he has worked in inner city churches, especially in Sheffield, England. As a theologian he created an inner city seminary for the study of Jesus in the urban context and wrote on the subject. As President of the Methodist Conference he was involved in controversy when he challenged the Christian basis of Margaret Thatcher's policies.

What will we make of all this? Come and find out on Saturday, 28th March. We'll be discussing the book from 2pm.
