We have now produced reports covering many different topics such as discipleship, work, the family, overseas connections, money and evangelism. Our latest report Good news for the poor? was released in May 2015 and explores whether evangelicals really love their neighbours.
Following more than a dozen short research reports, the Alliance drew together leading academics in theology and the social sciences who looked in depth at the data and contributed their analysis and reflection for our book 21st Century Evangelicals (January 2015). The book is made up of chapters tackling subjects including social involvement, politics, global mission, gender and families, each with a response from an experienced practitioner.
There is much to celebrate in our reports. They confirm a distinctive counter-cultural evangelical lifestyle and identify emerging trends. However, they also highlight things that should be of great concern to Christians across the UK.
It's really important that we don't let this valuable research just gather dust on the shelf. Instead we need to find ways to share the findings more widely and to generate a lively discussion of the implications. And then we need to pray it through and get to work in the mission that God has called us to in the UK.
