Colonies of Heaven explores how distinctive themes in the early Christianity of the British Isles - monasticism, blessing and cursing, penance and pastoral care, worship, the communion of saints and pilgrimage - might be applied in practical terms to Christian life today. Building 'colonies of heaven' (communities of prayer, artistic and creative activity, hospitality and team ministry), Bradley argues, would revitalise our churches with a new spiritual and social role in an increasingly secular and fragmented society.
