Description

About the Book What does it really mean to be a parish priest in today's pressurised and changing church? A range of contributors explore first-hand the contradictions and paradoxes of a priest's daily life, focusing on presence and prayer. Urgent yet optimistic, they seek a renewed understanding of ministry and mission in our current cultural landscape. Book Synopsis The traditional landscape of Anglican parish ministry is irrevocably changing. Priests have traditionally understood themselves as maintaining centres of prayer and spiritual care for people in a particular place, but urgent pressures on parish ministry are changing this. For God's Sake seeks to discern what priests are called to do in the new shape the church is taking. It looks for signs of God's kingdom in today's signs of the times, and ways of being both faithful and creative in the face of an uncertain future. A range of contributors explore first-hand the contradictions and paradoxes of a priest's daily life, reflecting on how the wisdom of the past and the new initiatives of evangelization are shaping their vocation to prayer, study and speaking the good news of Jesus Christ. Review Quotes A confident, grounded, lively and timely book... it celebrates the local as the place of the eternal.--Philip Welsh, Church Times 'This wonderful book should be compulsory reading for anyone who values the Church of England and cares about its future.'--Dr John Inge, Bishop of Worcester The ministry that is evoked in this book is one that seeks above all to allow God to be God.'--Rowan Williams
