Christians have to recover the sense of mass participation and divine disorder in their Easter celebrations next time round, according to theologian Theo Hobson, an Ekklesia associate – and author of two books on subversive Christianity: Against Establishment, An Anglican Polemic and Anarchy, Church and Utopia: Rowan Williams on the Church. His arguments chime with a forthcoming book from religion commentator Jonathan Bartley, which argues that the ‘Christendom era’ of top-down denominationalism is at an end, and that Christianity must rediscover its radical roots to flourish in a plural society.
