Trust: A Radical Manifestoby Chalke Steve, Anthony Watkis
Politicians, media and the people all agree - across our society trust has been eroded, even totally lost. In this, the latest book in the Faithworks series, Steve Chalke looks at the breakdown of public trust and asks the government and the Church 'Can the public actually trust you'? Trust has become something of a buzzword of late... everyone is talking, writing, about it. It will be the central theme of the next election. But so much of what is said is just remarking on the fact of its disappearance, moaning about the current situation and expressing a desire for things to be different - an 'if only we could turn the clock back' mentality. But we need a more constructive approach, and we need it soon. It is obvious we would like a world filled with trust, but the question is how we can make it happen. As well as analysing trust, Steve Chalke goes on to outline practical steps, which individuals and churches can take in order to become slowly more worthy of the trust of government and public. And once trust is developed, God will be able to really start working... - Lively, thorough and searching - A timely look at a pressing issue - A must-read for those in the Church - Essential for those in public life
