For God's Sake: Re-Imagining Priesthood and Prayer in a Changing Church

Canterbury Press / 2015 / Paperback

Stock No: WW258143


Product Description

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.
